Brief Profile of Photographer: After Graduation from Delhi University SGTB Khalsa coll. and while engaging myself with the corporate world, my passion for photography which I started long ago came back when my Dearest friend gifted me with a camera, since then it has been a journey which I passionately enjoy every moment. Having grown up right from the bosom of Mother Nature in the midst of the beautiful hills and valleys in the northeastern state of Manipur, I have always been a great lover of nature, people, and places with a passion to capture its beauty through photography. To me photography is a way to capture a moment in time which you cherish for the rest of your life.

Consolation Prize - View of Sunset At Loktak Lake

Photographer Name: Moirangthem Ranjit
Address: Keishamthong Top Leirak Maning Leikai, Imphal West - 795001, Manipur.

Short Description of the Photograph : The photograph was taken in the evening of 7th November 2011 from Phoubakchao (nearing Komlakhong) area in the in the eastern cost of the Loktak Lake. The view is as seen from the eastern side onlooking the sunset. The area has no dry foothold as in the western side, and I have to walk on floating pieces of phumdi to get this shot. The idea of the photograph is to portray the alternative angle to view the lake and also to stray away from the conventional angles from which numerous numbers of photographs of the lake are taken. Moreover, I would also like to portray a different mood through the use of the falling lights of the evening.

CAPTION : Destination Manipur : View of Sunset At Loktak Lake

Brief Profile of the Photographer : Into the photography business since early childhood assisting my father who was a professional photographer running a studio in Imphal, Manipur. Medium format cameras (Rolleiflex, Richomatic, Yashica - Twin Lens Reflex cameras were in vogue with black & white 120mm roll films and then colour roll films gradually. Soon 35 mm SLR cameras were used. Today, digital medium completely took over with a little bit of film photography time to time. Since I was into the business, general photography was the order of the day like portraiture, group photos, product shots, events, functions, ceremonies, wedding, children, macros, outdoor assignments, interiors, copying, studio photography, etc.

In the meantime, in 1990, got a job in the Central Government of India, Ministry of MSME. Thus, I have to manage my time to devote to two jobs, which surprisingly, I am enjoying. However, real passion for photography lies in landscapes, nature, abstracts, portraiture, street, documentation and photojournalism. Really enjoy action photography, low light photography, long exposures, panoramas and HDR. (Corresponding indoor activities include drawing, painting, animation, desk top publishing, printing, composing, reading, correspondence, films & music, playing guitar; and outdoor activities include motorcycling, growing bonsai, trekking, camping, climbing & traveling). I am now running a photo studio-cum-institute taking job works and also teaching basics of photography.

Consolation Prize - A view of Barak River,

Photographer Name: Shijagurumayum Deepak
Address: Singjamei Thongam Leikai, Near Sroy Club Imphal West 795001

Short Description of the Photograph: A view of Barak river, which it took a 30 min boat ride from Bamgaijang Vilage in Tamenglong district to reach this paradise. A place in its pristine beauty uncorrupted by civilisation. I had a mixed feelings of emotions at my first glance, a feeling of ecstasy getting the chance to see this sublime beauty and another of the feeling of wanting to share it with the people of my state and others.

I couldn't imagine dying without seeing this beautiful place and I believe this feeling will be felt equally by others who will get to see it some day and hopefully with the development of tourism industry in the state.

Brief Profile of Photographer: Freelance photographer.
