Mysore Photographic Assn. Trust launched

July 11, 2022

Mysore/Mysuru: DCF Dr. V. Karikalan opined  that as every photograph is a historical document, all photographers should have clarity and commitment in their profession.

He was speaking after launching the Mysore Photographic Association (MPA) Trust at a programme organised by MPA at the Institution of Engineers on JLB road here on Sunday.

Pointing out that all photographers must have three Ps — Patience, Perfection and Passion, Dr. Karikalan observed that possession of these three qualities will help a photographer become a good professional.

Noting that wildlife photography needs patience and concentration more than other forms of photography, he said that these qualities are key for achieving success and recognition.

Reiterating that all photographs are a historical document, he said that photos, which remain still for centuries without undergoing any changes, will remain etched in our minds for long.

Reminiscing his services in Mysuru, Dr. Karikalan said that he has been posted to Mysuru for the third time and in fact, he has become a Mysurean as both his children were born in Mysuru.

“I have such a good association with Kannadigas that I can declare myself as a Kannadiga,” he added.

T. Kempanna, Chairman of Bengaluru’s Photographic Club, who spoke after launching the logo of the newly formed Trust, said that photographs should clearly portray our feelings and emotions. Pointing out photographs capture reality, he said that photographers must have a thorough knowledge of cameras, whether big or small.

Observing that the notion costly cameras will give a better picture is wrong, Kempanna said that settings play a key role in capturing the best images. Creativity is vital for a photographer for achieving name and fame, he added.  Writer and Researcher Dr. Shwetha Madappadi, Trust President A. Shanthappa, Secretary Muralidhar and others were present on the occasion.
