We all want to succeed in life. We have countless ideas about what it means to be happy and successful. But sometimes we just need skills to help us get there.
“The camera is an instrument that teaches people how to see without a camera.”
A wonderful session was conducted on the 30 of July by CMR National PU College ITPL, it was a perplexing and informative session on the topic “Wildlife..through my lenses” by Ms.Anupama Naik. This session was very informative and interesting. The session taught a lot about the general introduction to photography with the camera brands, types of lenses, genres of photography, rules, what your kit should have?
Ms. Anupama Naik also portrayed some wonderful pictures and experiences through her trips and her journey, the dos, and don’ts of wildlife photography, Jungle ethics. We were amused with her photos taken of different species: Tiger, Elephant, Rhino, Himalayan Grey Langurs, etc.
She also stated that the time and effort taken to get the perfect attractive photo is worth the time. Different patterns of animals while capturing also the beauty and uniqueness of a few jungles she visited. Like the Jim Corbett Tiger Reserve
Sounds like a fascinating session, isn’t it? Indeed, it was one!!, Incase you missed it, we have a blog here for you!! And everything is written for the feel of being in the session.
Ms. Anupama Naik talks about her visit to a couple of wildlife sanctuaries from where she shows us her beautiful collection of photographs from the jungle.
TADOBA ANDHARI TIGER RESERVE
She meets one of the most gorgeous tigress Maya!
Very fearless, smart, and friendly to humans. Maya has a son named Surya and his sister Mera. They are so loved by many and treated as humans as they too have their own personalities.
JIM CORBETT NATIONAL PARK
The queen of this place is the tigress Parwali. We see the amount of love the little cubs share with their mother is so admirable. You can see a wide range of different animals like tigers and elephants and sambar deer.
KISHANPUR WILDLIFE SANCTUARIES
A dense deciduous forest of salt, teak, and Jamun. Animals enjoy the canopy in the jungle.
Here you can spot a Neelgai / blue cow, exotic birds, Peacock, and the Himalayan Grey Langur, Monkey. These animals do not harm you, they are very calm and attentive in nature.
KAZIRANGA NATIONAL PARK
Habitat of tall elephant grass. This place is also flooded by the Brahmaputra river almost every year. It is also known as a World Heritage Site. Here the one-horn rhino is mostly seen and Elephants, Deer.
PILIBHIT TIGER RESERVE
The habitat is characterized by sal forests, tall grasslands, and swamps by flooding from rivers. The non-standard borders create an opportunity for threats for the animals as well as for the humans.
It’s true that” every picture has a story to it”. Ms. Anupama Naik went through her jungle safari very well. Taking an image, freezing a moment, reveals how rich reality truly is.
Nature and wild animals have a tendency to be rather difficult to predict. Because of this, wildlife photographers must be very patient individuals. They will often lay in wait for long periods of time in order to get the shots that they want.
We learnt about the rules and ethics of travelling in the jungle, the different dangers that a photographer can encounter in the jungle.
There are certain ethics that have to be followed in a jungle safari like wearing a particular shade of clothing, wearing no perfume, being organized, and carrying all essentials. All this helps in being quick, not putting yourself into danger so that you can enjoy your journey without panicking about where your belongings are.
Wildlife photographers are some of the world’s most valued professionals. Providing images of animals in their natural habitat is essential to science, education, and many other fields. Patience and the ability to work in uncertain and changing conditions are required to succeed in this specialty area.
Your career is something you would choose for the rest of your life. Nowadays being an engineer or a doctor is old school. The Newer generation is very much into jobs that are adventurous and choose jobs that they are passionate about.
Did you know that to practice photography you don’t really have to purchase an expensive camera? You can just rent it.
If you are a person who loves photography, nature, and traveling; this can be a fascinating career for you. If you are really certain about taking photography as a career then it is most ideal to start creating a good portfolio of your work. you can rent or borrow a good quality camera and explore your talent or skills, let your words be few and your exposure many. Take part in as many competitions as you can. The certificates can be helpful in the future. Look and think before opening the shutter. The heart and mind are the true lenses of the camera, First captured through your eyes.
never ever switch off your camera while in a jungle drive! The jungle can surprise you anytime!
Thank you so much Ms. Anupama Naik for inspiring and enlightening all of us. It was truly a wonderful session.
