This cover story is a tribute to the students who have taken up photography as a hobby. Without a doubt, it is a healthy and exciting hobby through which they can grow sensitive towards the people, nature, lifestyle, edifices, heritage sites, culture and environment in general.
Star Campus has been printing photographs taken by students on a regular basis, which we found interesting and at times even fantastic! Many senior photographers have generously commented in praise of these photographs.
The ideal subjects for photography is simply countless. It can be the innocent smile of a toothless child, the hard wrinkles on the face of an old pushcart driver reflecting determination and struggle, or the 'banshiwala' who sells magic flutes wandering in the streets. It even can be some beautiful animals like pigeons, sparrow, parrot, dogs, horse, elephants etc. Trees can never be replaced with any other subject for photography. Then you have flowers with scintillating colour as subject that can be turned into wonderful photos.
After many months we thought it would be appropriate to dedicate a cover story for the shoukhin student photographers. So, here it is!
Please let us have your comments.

Vector graphics, ambience, swirling and panning, composition, perspective, macro lens, tripod - sounds like photography jargons?
