Mirrorless இப்பவே வாங்கணுமா?

தன்னிலை விளக்கம் (disclaimer ) 2018 ஆம் ஆண்டு, mirroless காமெராக்களின் ஆண்டு என்று கூறுகிறார்கள்..!, என்னை பொறுத்தவரை இந்த ஆண்டு, ஒளிபடக்கலைங்கர்கள் தங்களை தாமே ‘சுயவிமர்சனத்துக்கு’ உட்படுத்தவேண்டிய ஆண்டு! தங்களின் நிலைப்பாட்டினையும், ஒளிபடமெடுத்தல் குறித்த நம்பிக்கைகளையும் ‘மறுபரிசீலனை’ செய்யவேண்டிய ஆண்டு! ஒளிப்பட தொழிலில் ஜெயிக்க கருவிகளை சரியே ‘புரிந்துகொள்ள’ வேண்டிய ஆண்டு! இந்த பதிவு, மாறிவரும் புதிய தொழில் நுட்பத்துக்குக்கோ அல்லது கேமெரா பிராண்டுகளுக்கோ எதிரானது அல்ல. மாறாக, திருமண ஒளிப்படக்கலைங்கர்களின் ‘தன்னிலை அறிதல்’ குறித்து ஞாபகப்படுத்தும் ஒரு முயற்சி அவ்வளவுதான்..!

Photography is not only about beauty

“The last class I felt really bad for the freedom fighter’s photo. I laughed when my view point was only @ the ten rupees currency. I never saw the tear running out from his eyes and even today morning, I literally cried when riding my bike, thinking of his situation and even I felt bad myself for laughing, felt ashamed. I really respect elder peoples, may be this was a good lesson for my instant reaction. Pls. forgive if I had disturbed anybody, thanks!” – a mail from one of the weekend class participants.
It was the final day class for the weekend basic photography, I was sharing few pictures. And this was the picture of a freedom fighter in his advanced age saluting with the rolling tears for the ten rupees he received from one of our students during a photography tour. There was a spontaneous laughter from few of the students in the class. But once I explained the story behind the picture, the entire class was moved…!

Photography is not only about beauty

As few of my ‘full time’ photography students were trying to take photos, this elderly person was begging in a temple at Kancheepuram, he suddenly burst in to tears and saluted the shooters. Moved by his condition and emotions, I captured him in tears. The condition of this old man tells about the values of life and freedom. For a flash of moment I realized the happenings of ‘Free India’ (Minister caught watching porn in Karnataka assembly, patient’s husband kills the doctor, 9th class student slits the throat of his lady teacher, supreme court verdict challenged, grand reception for the Tihar returned..!, bank robbed at gun point, 4th standard girl raped by the headmaster…. and so on) and the respect and reward we pay for the people who fought for ‘Freedom’. Only if we are aware about the struggle for freedom, we will value the constitution and understand our rights.
I told my students, “Photography is not only about beauty, it is also about hard and bitter truth. It is not only about the appearance but also about the values of life. Capture your feelings about what you saw… that makes a sensible picture”.
Now read the first paragraph….
A photo is made to be understood from a viewer’s perspective. But sometimes, if the situation of the picture or the story behind the making of the picture is told by the photographer, the viewer will truly understand the purpose of the photo.
