If you look closely, life's full of frames telling a story and wanting to be captured forever. Take the example of a water crown (a water crown is formed when the water drop hits the water below), it just lives for less 1/200th of a second. But it presents us the opportunity to capture it in a photo forever and that's how it lives.
This is not a typical "about us" section. There are no glamorous photos and profiles. This is basically about you and about me. Photography is our common thread and that's what this club is about. So whenever you want to know About the club, just add up your enthusiasm with other fellow enthusiasts and the sum will add up to what the Club is
The club is an attempt to take photography closer to people so that it is used as a medium to narrate stories, self-expression or simply capturing emotions or freezing the moment of the timeline.
We are constantly trying to take away all the possible reasons for you to not take up photography. So if you feel lack of motivation to shoot, there are group activities like Heritage Photowalks where you can participate. If you just bought a camera, you can join our beginner's course. If you can't travel, well there are mentors of the club who can help you remotely. Finally, if there's no platform for you to showcase, participate in DPC's exhibitions!
