For World Photography Day~ 19th August, 2011
There are many people in this world who never heard of World Photography Day. Even I was not aware till 2007...Why is that? World Photography Day wasn’t ‘created’ by a big brand as a marketing tool nor needed an brand-ambassdor.
It's rather a day where photographers had started to come together to celebrate photography, just because they could. Any excuse to throw a party right?!?!
World Photography Day originates from the invention of the Daguerreotype, a photographic processes developed by Louis Daguerre. On January 9, 1839, The French Academy of Sciences announced the daguerreotype process. A few months later, on August 19, 1839, the French government announced the invention as a gift “Free to the World.”
Nodoubt that now, when we have DSLRs and those various modes/ tricks/ techniques of photography, we should celebrate the fraternity of 'photographers'.
A day for that passion called "clicking away", a day to salute your work and mine...!
To all "shutter-bugs"around the world, on this World Photography Day, Amtrips wishes happy clicking moments!
