There are enough occasions for professionals to display their techniques with the camera. But what if you are an amateur? Fret not, because you have a chance to display your skills at the Delhi Nice Foto 2012. The second edition of this exhibition will feature photographs from over 100 enthusiasts aged between 7 years and 58 years from India and around the world.

This exhibition offers situations, technique, motivation and platform for photography enthusiasts. ‘The idea behind this exhibition is to create a platform for amateur photographers and photography enthusiasts where they can creatively express themselves,’ says Anil Kumar, founder member, Delhi Photography Club (DPC).

‘Participating in the exhibition is a high point for amateur photographers since they can’t afford to organise a solo exhibition for themselves, for various reasons,’ he added.

To let people hone their skills, DPC does free photo walks every month. For teaching the technique they have workshops at various levels (beginner and intermediate) and for motivation, they offer memberships. These exhibitions offer the final platform.

Overall this exhibition will reflect the heterogeneity in creative expression by all those who are participating. Therefore, the photographs do not follow any particular theme. The photographs have been selected by the DPC team. Picture quality was an important factor while shortlisting the participants.

‘The criteria for selection of photographs was very simple. They have to be of print quality and should have basic composition elements. We have kept it simple to accommodate as many amateur photographers and photography enthusiasts,’ says Kumar. The interesting part is that each photograph would tell a different story and would have an entirely different background to it.

DPC this time also received photos from different countries like Croatia, Spain, Italy, Australia, Iran, etc. Through this endeavour, DPC brought together businessmen, diplomats, doctors, lawyers, homemakers, students and children and helped them pursue their passion for photography without actually opting for it as a career.
