A great photograph is one that fully expresses what one feels, in the deepest sense, about what is being photographed, and is, thereby, a true manifestation of what one feels about life in it's entirety. . . I believe in photography as one means of achieving an ultimate happiness and faith! - Ansel Adams

A visit to Photofair 2010

A visitor admiring the innovations of Nikon over the years


Photofair, held in Mumbai, is supposedly the world's 3rd largest exhibition of photographic equipments and accessories. I visited it last Saturday (09/01/2010) along with my friends hoping to get the latest dope on technology and to get to know vendors for accessories I might need. However, the place was quite crowded and it was difficult to spend time at the stalls owing to the constant flow of people, which kept you on the toes. It took us over 4 hours only to tour the area. Surprisingly the exhibition, though housed with hundreds of stalls over a large area, didn't have a presence from Canon, Sony and filter manufacturers / distributors. Nikon, one of the sponsors of the event, had little on display and its stall appeared more like a gallery (see pic above).
The event also had intermittent fashion shows and Latin dance performances to titillate the visitors.
The exhibition, thus had little to offer to a travel photographer like me and was aimed more towards photographers who have a studio or are engaged in portrait / wedding photography. Nonetheless worth a visit.
