'Informative, circumstantial journalism need of hour'


Speaking after inaugurating a programme organised by Udupi Press Photographers’ Association (UPPA) to celebrate the “World Photography Day” here on Wednesday, he said that sensationalisation of news is the basic priority that is commonly observed. People are misguided and are driven far from the authenticity of the facts. Informative and circumstantial journalism clubbed with timeliness is the need of the hour, he observed.

Digital technology has yielded tremendous benefits in the field of photography. Even though it lacks creativity, it has saved a lot of film rolls. Photographers should be aware of the apposite blend of light with the composition to give maximum impact, he said.

A slide show “Uniquely Singapore” by photojournalist Astro Mohan and photography expo of UPPA members was inaugurated by Chaayachandana Editor Udupi Ratnakar on the occasion.

Udupi RTO H N Ramesh, UPPA President Hemanth Padubidri, Secretary Janardhan Kodavoor and others were present.
