DRUSHTIKON - 2009 - my first foto exhibition in group!

yaay !!
what an experience !!
it started far far before.. than the actual days of exhibition.. from sending entries to the exhibit to the last day of exhibit.. P@P told to submit 5 entries for exhibit, which i did.. n they select all those 5 entries for exhibit.. i was winner at that moment only!! :D Initially, i had selected some other 5 fotos to send.. but those were not fit in the categories shared by them.. so new 5 fotos!! :)

Meantime, Suhas and Pankanj (admins of P@P) asked me to design event communications, so i did. I started work.. n that also goes well.. most important here.. they didnt interfere in design like very typical client. n that's why i enjoyed the work. It was funn working with P@P team. I enjoyed making DRUSHTIKON 2009 designs - posters, hoarding, banners, invitation, flyer, sponsor card, NGO's sheet, photographer info page etc.

exhibit was on 13-14 and 15th november at pune.. was not able to be there on the first day.. ie. on friday as i cought up in office work, but was there for next 2 days. Those 2 days were really yaadgaar.

Aai-Baba was there on the day two! Sahil, Sanil, Omkar, Ballu, Sushil, Vishal D, Aamod, Nilesh, VivekD n their friends were with me in the morning. Presence of Aai-Baba and these friends made my day. I met Rushi, Suhas, Pankaj, Soumitra for the first time there. Suhas's expressions after seeing was ttotally unexpected. After exhibit.. ie. after 9.oo pm, Bhushan's guitar Mehfil started.. what a singer + guitarist he is!!! I missed his mehfil on friday night and also on the sunday night. :(

Next day, on Sunday, Saarang came with his cousin there.. (i literally forgot to wish him there.. his b'day.. i was so excited about the event.. :). Then sudi, nishant, mrudula and richa visited. Had funn with them as well. Thanx guys! :)

I was supposed to have a workshop on colourscheme on Saturday, but was not able to do that for some great reasons! but it happened on Sunday then.. the workshop of Photoshop - toning, adding colours, adding textures to photos - ie. enhancing photos through PS with tones n textures. It was a success with the help of Rushi and Suhas.

FLOP magazine arranged a unique program there of viewers choice. At the entrace, they shared a paper with the viewers n told them to select their top 5 fotos from the exhibit. i found, every viewer was doing this pro-actively and after 2 days of exhibit i came to know, my "Character in Rust' was in TOP 5. WAAAH!

We equally enjoyed your designs, flaunting those on Tees and the most importantly your company.
