In this digital age where “everyone is a photographer” is it becoming more and more difficult to take a great picture? We don’t think so. There are more good pictures, but the great ones still stand out. The digital age has brought
scores of new people to the photography industry. With all the advanced technology and automation it has made the industry very appealing to thousands of newcomers. Photography is now more meaningful and images do speak the proverbial 1000 words.
Photographers have so many other associations to their images, i.e. the experience they had when taking the photo. The important information is what can be taken from the image itself – everything else is supplementary. It helps to trust someone else who
has a more neutral response to select your best images. Hence we curate your photos to a theme so that the photos tell a story, with an underlying theme.
We look forward to IWC members coming forward with their best photos on nature and wildlife. Send about 30 pictures-in low resolution; you can upload them on picasa and send the link too- for us to choose from. The photos
must have captions and also details about when and where taken. Send a two line write-up about you-the photographer along with a link to your own web page. Those who want to buy high resolution images from you will contact you directly. IWC will expect
you to give link to the phtogallery once the photos are uploaded.
To quote Shekhar Dattatri, the well-known film maker
"While pictures of nature and wildlife are valuable when contributed to conservation causes, images that depict the destruction of nature are vital for creating change. Unfortunately, most nature photographers in India do not even consider taking “conservation
photographs” such as road kills, mined slopes, deforested hillsides, ugly constructions within forests, or other man-made disasters inflicted on nature. Yet, pictures like these, with a record of the location, date and time, can help conservation immensely.
...The advantage with conservation photography is that, unlike nature photography, it is not dependent on sophisticated and expensive equipment, or great technical skill......."
So, send in your conservation photos on a theme and we will publish them in our 3D gallery.
