Pooja Rajput   | Travel Photographer and  Enthusiast  | Seasoned biker

“I don’t photograph subjects. I photograph the way they make me feel.”

sun-samaj-natgeo

Pooja Rajput is a photographer and a seasoned biker, being an extreme adventure enthusiast my camera goes along on with me on my motorcycle. Clicking varied facets of life mainly comprising of aerial, travel, landscapes, portraits, and fashion is what I do. My style consists of colorful and energetic imagery.

5D_16698-Edit-cop-finaly

The urge to satisfy ones artistic hunger its essential to create thus my photographic journey started with finding a visual medium in photography. I picked up photography as a hobby. Slowly the hobby turned into a passion which now has become an integral part of my life.

5D_16175

My achievements as a photographer includes honourable  mentions in the International Photography Awards 2015 & 2016, publications in worldwide photography magazines like Lonely Planet, Asian photography to name a few. My pictures have been displayed at the international exhibitions like Nicefoto : an international celebration of amateur photography.

I have also photographed for the Book “Navy in the 21 century “released by the Honourable President of India, the Maritime Heritage of India 2016 released by the Honourable Prime Minister and various publications in the International Fleet Review 2016.

andaman-hat

In my opinion the new age comes with new responsibilities. This era of digital photography has made it very convenient for everyone to go and photograph in a way which is very welcoming and affordable but out of these only few qualify as true photographers and artists who have the vision and the technical know how and dedicate their time to the art. Like any art requires practice so does photography and one tends to get better with the right vision. Taking on constructive criticism about your work is a part of learning process and should be taken in the right stride. Not obtaining right feedback is the mistake what most newbie’s make. The harsher your mentor is the better you will get should always be kept in the mind. Learning photography is a continuous process and the day you feel you have learnt all about photography means your decline will start from their. One should always be open about gaining knowledge from fellow photographers and seniors.

5D_11825-copy

My otherwise busy schedule and the nature of job keeps me occupied but the urge to create and bring home stories which otherwise were untold keeps me going. The biggest challenge which I face is visiting the same place or event and yet come back with different set of images. The challenge to create something different every time keeps me going. The feeling of creating something new gives me a sense of achievement and is soul satisfying.

Meet the real people from world of Photography Interview Yashpal Rathore

We are featuring people who are hobbyist or professionals photographers and we think they are worth sharing of Delhi Photography Club Fan page .

The selection is purely at the Discretion of Founders and owners of Delhi Photography Club.

Yashpal Rathore  : Naturalist & Photography Mentor :  Owner: JMD Images & Rathore Nature Photography

1. How you started your photography

wakingup
My interest in Nature & wildlife dates from Childhood. I was regular in conservation related activity for college days whether its wildlife census or other activities. I did Naturalist certification course conducted by Jungle lodges & Resorts Karnataka, also did Certified Volunteer course conducted by Karnataka Forest Department & Eco tourism board. Photography came late, but naturally into my life. Once I got into nature photography, it was easy for me to move into it, as my engineering background & being Naturalist help me.

2. What is the role of new technology and medium in photography?

The residents of “Khichan”, a small village in Indian state of Rajasthan, have a special affinity to these Demoiselle cranes (Grus Virgo) called “Khurja” in the local language. The arrival of the birds is considered auspicious and several ballads celebrate the importance of these birds in the culture of Rajasthan. Few Decade years ago, the villagers started putting grain out for the few dozen birds that stopped over during their migration from breeding grounds in Eurasia. Over these years number of winter visitors grown to about 20 thousands. I wanted to portray the birds from the perspective of the spread out Grain by an ultra low - ultra wide angle. I dug small hole in ground so that camera can be placed inside with fisheye lens front element at ground level also made postcard size diffuser over external flash. This was not an easy task. The birds, even though they were habituated to the Human scape, would not venture within 5-6 feet of the camera hidden away in a well camouflaged cardboard box and buried under the ground. Ultimately I left the box for a couple of months to allow the cranes to become habituated to this. During my last visit towards end of winter, the proximity of the birds to the camera was unbelievable. They came in droves exploring the lens and pecking at it. This brought its own unique challenge. If the first few frames were not suitable, the rest would be unusable as the lens would be covered with dust, feather & foot marks. During post processing I had removed dust marks. Camera Gear: Canon 7D ; lens canon 8-15mm f/4 fisheye at 10mm ; Exposure 1/160sec; f/16 ; ISO 800; External flash EC -1/3; Remote trigger with Camranger device Location: Khichan, western Rajasthan, India

Elephant

In recent times technology is changing very fast, also in the field of photography. Today everyone is a photographer, those who own smartphones or stand-alone camera. In photography advancement of technology has made many things possible which was not possible before. Today camera’s high ISO performance makes shooting possible at late evening time, earlier we used to pack up camera bags those times. In-camera Multiple exposure, HDR, etc. creates opportunities to make new images.

Few Decade years ago, the villagers started putting grain out for the few dozen birds that stopped over during their migration from breeding grounds in Eurasia. Over these years number of winter visitors grown to about 20 thousands. Central to the spectacle is the spreading of JOWAR (millets, a form of grain) in a protected enclosure called Chugga ghar (or the feeding house ). Every morning at first light, cranes in Rows of v shapes would come from every direction, sky will be filled with sea of cranes, the birds descending into the dunes or grounds around feeding house. Then one group entered the enclosure, others would follow. Meanwhile other cranes wait patiently for their turn outside enclosure. I had setup camera with wide angle lens on ground well camouflaged such that, these Marching crane army walks till camera before taking leap to clear 7ft high fence to enter into Chugga ghar.

3. Anything specific that you want to share with people.

_MG_5039

I see many new photographers devote too much time in discussion over various brands of camera or technical aspects of it. Every new model with few additional Megapixel or extra fps draws more attention. But Advancement of technology can’t replace knowledge of your genre of photography. You can be successful wedding photographer only if you know detail customs of wedding you are planning to shoot. You can’t be better fashion photographer if you don’t know the latest trends in fashion. Similar we can be better nature photographers if we have deep knowledge about our subjects of interest, because it’s all about anticipating moment well in advance. So to be better nature photographer we need to be a naturalist first, otherwise instead of doing good to nature by your photography, you will end up harming nature because of our ignorance.

4. What gives you motivation to go out and click despite having busy schedules.

_R3U8968

My desire to capture nature in new or different perspectives or derives me to go out in wilderness again & again. I had developed remote controlled buggy & developed dslr camera trap systems to capture wildlife in innovative ways.  I try to manage balance between my work, my family and my passion, which is very important.

DPC SCOTT KELBY WORLDWIDE Heritage Photowalk: DELHI Redfort — New Delhi, INDIA

budget traveling

About Red Fort

The Red sandstone walls of the massive Red Fort (Lal Qila) rise 33-m above the clamour of Old Delhi as a reminder of the magnificent power and pomp of the Mughal emperors. The walls, built in 1638, were designed to keep out invaders, now they mainly keep out the noise and confusion of the city.

The main gate, Lahore Gate, is one of the emotional and symbolic focal points of the modern Indian nation and attracts a major crowd on each Independence Day.

The vaulted arcade of Chatta Chowk, a bazaar selling tourist trinkets, leads into the huge fort compound. Inside is a veritable treasure trove of buildings, including the Drum House, the Hall of Public Audiences, the white marble Hall of Private Audiences, the Pearl Mosque, Royal Bathsand Palace of Color.

About World wide photowalk

1-The walk is on Saturday, 07th October and will start from the entrance of the Red Fort gate at 8.00 am, and will end at 10.00 am .

2-May we request you to be on time to start the walk in time?

3-This HPw will be a combination of interesting and unknown facts about the fort and Indian history. For this, we will have a trained walk leader with us

1) How you started your photography?

I never thought that I will take up photography as my career as it was just my hidden hobby from childhood.

_K5A7667

I got my first camera when I was in 11th standard as a gift from a tourist in Goa. From then onwards, I have started clicking using Konica reel.

IMG_20160908_104147

I wished to become an entrepreneur. After completing my 12th standard, I have started my own business. At that point of time, I used to have good camera phones that have helped me to continue my passion. I used to take many pictures and sent them to various newspapers and magazines.

_K5A8068.JPG

Since 2009, I have concentrated my focus more towards photography as my business was not doing well. Then, I was relocated from Bangalore to Hyderabad. In 2010, I started  attending few online workshop and sessions and attended few photo-walks/ talks. I learned a lot from a brand setup in Hyderabad and it helped me in enriching my skills and made more confident.

_K5A8093.JPG

In 2012, I happened to join an IT company based in Dubai as Sales Manager. Apart from my job  I use to have some free time. So in order to  utiize my free time more fruitfully, I  applied for a part time photographer’s job for a local Bollywood magazine. I gained practical experience and learned the intricacies of photography by covering live shows, press meets and shooting celebrities across the glamorous world of Bollywood.

Attended many fashion photography sessions and at times did wedding photography as well.

2) What is the role of new technology and medium in photography?

_K5A7720

Ans: The latest technology in photography had paved the way for many discoveries. The advanced state-of-art technology in photography is doing wonders and I’m in favour of this radical shift.

The biggest role of technology in the medium of photography made a photographer’s life easy. Even a novice photographer can step into the realm of photography with great confidence with the given technological innovations. All you need is to have a great passion and an eye to capture the right moment.

IMG_20160328_234922

As everything is available on online nowadays, the dearth of inspiration and motivation can be achieved with ease. The present day technology in the publishing industry of photography has taken diverse shapes and doing miracles drawing the attention of the onlooker.

3) Anything specific you want to share with people?

ak

Ans: When it comes learning anything in this world, it is a never ending process. This applies to photography also. One has to keep on updating with the trends and face new challenges to widen oneself. The exposure to the real-time photo shoots will enhance the latent skills in us. In a way, regular participation in photo walks/workshops will become a backbone to strengthen the skills of the photographer. The cutting edge of technology mixed with talent and hard work will certainly create ripples in the world of photography.

4) What gives you the motivation to go out and click despite having busy schedule ongoing medical conditions?

_K5A6372

Ans: I am a self-motivated person. I am confident of myself in all situations of life. What ever I do, I do it with 100% dedication. I have turned my passion for photography into a career. Every click makes more confident and gives strength to reach newer heights in my life. Every new assignment is a challenge and I explore it by meeting new people, places, situations, and circumstances.

When I shoot continuously, I will take a break for 10 minutes and drink a lot of water and juices to keep me alert and fit.
