Significance Of World Photography Day

August 19, 2022    7 min read

Photographs have their own charm. Often clicked to seize a moment, the still pictures always tell a story or relive old and cloaked moments. A photo album is a happy bag of emotions that instantly jolts our memory.

World Photography Day is a day to remember how pictures have made a lasting difference to our lives and their evolution over time. Each year a theme is dedicated to this day to help people share their own unique spin via images on trending global topics. This year the theme is ‘Pandemic Lockdown Through The Lens.’ The theme is an ode to different pandemic and lockdown journeys and is an assortment of experiences from around the world. The camera and the evolved tech made it possible for us to keep each motivated and connected even when they were miles away.

Lets understand the camera a bit more, discovered in 1825 by a French inventor, Joseph Nicéphore Niépce, it recorded a view from his window and since then there has been no going back. The evolution of photography with the digital era chiming in has been remarkable. From photo films to polaroids to instant pictures through the click of a button, photography has revolutionised how we perceive and showcase the world around us. The introduction of smart phones with cameras has been the real game changer. No party, no gathering, no event is today complete without a selfie! Photography has also ushered in new ways of staying connected with photo sharing social websites and apps, helping us keep in touch all the time.

While there are many uses of the camera, last year Practically went a notch ahead by introducing the revolutionary ‘Scan Anything’ feature that combines AI along with tech to enable immersive learning from your surroundings. The revolutionary, cutting-edge feature identifies objects scanned by the phone camera and lists results from its vast content library of 3000+ 3D videos, 1000+ simulations/AR experiences and 20,000 3D models, sorted by a student’s curriculum and grade. The Scan Anything feature can recognize pictures, questions, exercises, proofs etc., from textbooks, magazines, newspapers including capturing images of any surrounding objects and present linked curriculum learning information on the app for the learners to pick their learning journey and resolve doubts instantly. ‘Scan Anything’ has been our most loved feature and is also a patented technology. We have been granted a patent by the Government of India as, A METHOD AND A SYSTEM FOR PERCEPTUAL LEARNING WITH IMMERSIVE AND INTERACTIVE CONTENT. This is a mark on the distinct and significant progress we have made in bringing a learning revolution in India. Adding to our list of remarkable innovations, we have also launched lego lab, robotics lab and coding courses that are being implemented in schools on a case to case basis.
