People who have mastered the art of photography are doing great things these days. Some are sending a social message and some are giving people literally what they need and along with that they are making a few bucks out of it.
Photography is not only restricted to taking pictures
We have Photoshop wizards online doing exactly what people ask them to do and here’s the twist- it’s hilarious. If someone asks these people to make them look taller, they will use Photoshop to put a stool under that person’s legs. If someone asks them to cut the weight around their belly area, he will show a pair of scissors doing the exact same thing. These accounts on Instagram have more than 1.3 million followers and people who follow them can vouch for these people giving them a laugh when they’ve had a bad day.
A blogger has created a living for herself by selling her own presets. These presets can change a photograph drastically by giving it vibrant or laid back colours according to the user’s preference. People are lapping up to this because of the aesthetic quality these presets lend to the picture. It can make any lane look like it’s straight out of Italy and every face look like it’s been sunkissed.
Baring the soul without any restrictions
What photography training courses teach you is that there is no end to creativity. Even the most seasoned photographers are now going for a master’s course in photography or a diploma for the sole reason that there is no end to learning. Every experience and every class teaches you something or the other.
The professional photography institute scene in India has grown slowly but steadily.Now a person can pursue a 3 year integrated degree or they can go for a diploma. They can do mass communication for their undergraduate studies and do a masters in professional photography after that.
Areas of specialisation
You could become a wildlife photographer, sitting in the lap of Mother Nature and witness things you had never noticed. Animals will be your guides and teachers. You can take up wedding photography and shoot couples and their families and earn a handsome amount of money because Indians love spending heavily on weddings. You can work as a cameraman for a news channel or newspaper and use your skills to the best possible degree. Food photographers are also in great demand nowadays for making food look as appetizing as possible. They can make burgers look juicy and glossy and make you look at a glass of iced-tea with longing and yearning. If you look at their pictures and immediately order food from the restaurant, their job is done. You can work for brands and shoot their models. This is a job that is very popular because every brand, shop or an online site needs models and they are shown to the world with the help of photographers.
There are various other fields that a budding photographer can pursue and these institutes help even those people who are without a sense of direction to find what fulfils them and speaks to them on a spiritual level.
