19th of August 2017 :: World Photography Day originates from the invention of the Daguerreotype, a photographic processes developed by Joseph Nicèphore Nièpce and Louis Daguerre. On January 9, 1839, The French Academy of Sciences announced the daguerreotype process. A few months later, on August 19, 1839, the French government announced the invention as a gift “Free to the World”. With the help of Photography our knowledge about any thing & every thing of the Universe has increased leaps and bound. This is the day to pay tributes and remember the inventore and pioneers of photography and highlight their contributions.
Till date we have read and seen many types of changes in photography like from pinhole cameras to plate cameras. From monochrome to colour and from conventional photography to digital photography.
If we look at the journey of photography then we see that from monochrome to colour and from conventional to digital were the two main changes which changed the whole senerio of photography.
With the time photography also bifurcated from photography to different types of photography like fashion, micro, space etc.
Inspite of all these changes, the one thing which I came across in my photography life that was, people were always confused that “what to shoot” or we can say “what should be the subject”.
When we visit any photography gallery, I had many saying ” Oh my god this can also be the subject”.
It’s also very much true that Photography is the inner Aura of the photographer which he/she depicts in his/her creation.
On this great occasion of World Photography day, I am sharing a photograph which may not have any theam or we can say it’s very uncommon subject, but then also I am posting this. Please forgive me if you didn’t liked it.
