INDIA: Photography is an art composed of passion and absorption. The World Photography Day is celebrated on 19 August. Making every moment freeze and memories worthwhile is only possible with photo snaps. The camera is one of the most important human discoveries; entire credit goes to French artist Louis Daguerre, the father of the daguerreotype camera.
Many ardent Bollywood photographers flex their skills on the social media platform. One amongst them is Emraan Hashmi. In a past interview, he opened up about his passion for photography; he said, “I never wanted to be an actor and always wanted to be behind the camera, maybe a VFX expert. Photography is something I love from within. I have a professional camera that I carry along whenever I’m on holiday. I keep on taking random pictures. Though this passion is for self-satisfaction, I have some pictures I would like to exhibit someday.”
The Shamshera actor, Ranbir Kapoor, is not officially there on social media, but his excellent photography skills are introduced to the fans by ladylove Alia Bhatt. During visits to Masai Mara, Kenya, Ranbir clicked some fantastic wildlife photographs, including Alia. He is a wildlife lover, so he makes sure to click photos of wild creatures, nature and the surroundings.
Sunny Deol, a Bollywood veteran, expressed his love for capturing moods and expressions. He frequently shares wildlife photos on his social media accounts. Some of them are actual photographs of “Flora and Fauna.”
In an old interview, the Gangs of Wasseypur actor Richa Chaddha spoke of her love and inclination towards photography. She even excelled in photography during her college days. Chaddha said, “When I was studying media, we had lectures on photography. I am very interested in it and have also bought a film SLR camera. This has been my hobby for the past six years”.
Actor and new mother Dia Mirza is also photogenic in terms of capturing photos of nature. She uses wide lens cameras for capturing moments of nature.
