  2. i’m interested in photography and i live in chennai…

    tell me what shall i do..?

  3. I am not a professional photographer. But I’ve been indulging in photography since 1992. I was then 52 years old and began using camera out of sheer necessity. I was a personal assistant to a minister in the Gujarat Ministry of Chimanbhai Patel. I wanted to build up a photographic record of my minister. It all started with a point & shoot camera but soon I switched to an SLR Canon Rebel model which was gifted to the minister by a friend of his. The journey reached its end in 1995 to commence again in 2004 when my son presented me with a Canon Powershot A10. Now the journey seems to go on forever. It is today only that I came to familiarize me with PSI. The PSI was just a toddler when I first cried in a small room. I feel I should be a member. That’s all!
