Photographers are sometimes requested concerning the tools they use, whereas it’s frequent data {that a} good digicam and lens alone aren’t sufficient to supply arresting photos. The dialog about images must transcend the redundant queries, believes Arvind Chenji, president of Telangana Photographic Society (TPC). Why not discover the thought strategy of the photographer when he/she determined to seize a second for posterity? TPC’s first e-magazine known as Focus ( makes an attempt to do that by way of its in-depth interviews with grasp photographers. The journal’s first version deep dives into the work of Raghu Rai and Robb Kendrick.

Focus is meant to be a month-to-month on-line journal that includes interviews with each Indian and worldwide photographers, an vintage nook that narrates the story of an iconic digicam, and an evaluation of the life and work of an erstwhile images legend (Homai Vyarawalla within the first version). The journal can even be that includes a contest, data on images workshops and extra.

Arvind had been planning to launch a images journal, in print, since he took over as president of TPC two years in the past. “The common perception is that an image is good if it’s sharp and goes on to win some photography award. There’s no dearth of associations giving away awards and that cannot be a yardstick to judge an image. We need a practical, educational approach towards photography,” he says.

The journal will goal to supply higher insights into the artwork kind and TPC desires Focus to be learn by everybody, not simply photographers. Within two days of the launch, there have been 1600 registrations for the month-to-month on-line journal and almost 1000 views of the journal on Sunday.
