It’s been a while from now that I’ve been working on an extreme project and now when I’m all done with my research it’s time to pen it down and share out with you all guys and *girls (*I mean girls? really?) Ok, Let me come back to the point. A Shutterbug. What exactly is a shutterbug? How did it all started? What do they do? Why the hell they are so important that Pranay Singh has to write a blog on them?

Let me brief you with a short history behind the story of Shutterbugs, Person who gets a DSLR as a gift in his B’day or buys it with his savings is ‘not’ a shutterbug. He clicks some random clouds, tress and leafs etc. PS basically those photos which fulfills his desire of snapping pics which he used to see in google also does not make him a shutterbug. He uploads those photo’s on social media and gaining appraisal from others also does ‘not’ makes him a shutterbug.
Now when it has been a quite few hours and days from his last album, he then creates a FB page of his photos with a title “My F#@*% Photography” also does…… Oh! Wait! Your wait is over! Now actually he joins in the race of shutterbugs’! Much to an extent he then instantly snaps a picture of himself along with the DSLR camera and marks a flashy tagline is the moment when he enrolls himself to the ‘Shutterbug Club’. Now because of the appraisal from his fellow shutterbug friends, he tries to evolve himself by clicking the pictures of ‘Real India’. And in general terms ‘Real India’ is what I mean here are the places of poverty, slums, villages and snapping some poor malnourished poor kids is that ‘one’ single picture that you will surely find in his FB photography page album.
