About 16 years back I held a camera for the first timeand fell in love with it, instantly
We weren’t rich and this camera was a gift.
Back then films rolls were how we used to take photos.
A 36-photo roll used to cost Rs.100 and another Rs.3 to process one of them.
So an investment of Rs.200 – not knowing which one would come out the way you want it to.
But just the fact that I could imagine a picture, capture it in my lens, and see it convert into an image forever, was fascinating.
And overtime I realized the biggest lesson of my life
I could change the image
At my will
By controlling how I saw it through the lens and how I captured it through the camera
Every single day, we meet people at work
And as we grow, we will meet even more
More often than not, we will have an image of them, even before we meet them
Always remember – you have the power to change that image
At your will
Watch this beautiful video and you will know what I am talking about
Don’t ever let perception come in the way of discovering people
Every interaction can be a new image
Of the very same person
Wow! That is a beautiful thought!
