A little over a year back, on the 8th of June 2011, we got a mailer from the IITBAA group inviting people to get together for photography. G.S. Labs was graciously made available for those so inclined and the first meet happened on second of July. A mix of people with interests in capturing and showing light from the sheer art of it right up to techi details turned up. Thus was the Photography Club born.

We hold regular monthly meetings and outdoor photo walks. We compare notes, discuss and review photographs. Ideas evolved on identifying good pictures, handling the digital camera to catch them better and post process them. Over time we also setup a portal to host pictures. Our forte was, however, more of monthly discussions and hands-on photography.

We want this bug of hobby photography to spread and expect more and more creative IITans to join. So, work more on that random urge to grab a good picture with your mobile phone and your point-&-shoot. Kindle that desire for more focused photography. Join us to share your ideas and learn in a group of unlike-minded photo-enthusiasts.

At the end of this first year of the Photography Club, we decided to host a small celebration of our time with capturing light to show the best of our work as an invitation for the year to come.

So do join us with friends and families to view the exhibition to showcase The Best of Last year on Camera and interactive chat!!
