Throughout the world, patterns and trends are changing with the main frame still remaining, and the world of photography is no different. A photography exhibition was arranged by the Media Studies and Journalism (MSJ) Department of University of Liberal Arts Bangladesh (ULAB) at the National Museum Bangladesh, from April 26-27, 2011. The two day long exhibition was inaugurated by Rafiqul Islam, Vice Chancellor of ULAB. The Photography Exhibit was based on the idea of “Patterns of Bangladesh”. The aim of the exhibition was to enable students to acquire skills in photography by depicting a story through a series of photographs. Each student was given a topic based on which pictures were shot. The photo stories were judged based on parametres including focus, composition, and the ability to portray the story as a whole. The exhibition had twenty-two photo stories including stories on Jamdani saree, Rickshaw Decorations, Preparation of Topor, Faces Tell Stories, Shakha, Ghuri (kite) and many more. When asked what outcome results from such exhibits, A H Murad, an 8th semester student of Media Studies and Journalism said, “Anyone with a camera can click pictures. But with proper knowledge, one becomes a photographer. This exhibition has given me better understanding in elements like composition, focus and exposure, all of which are vital in photography.”
