Diwali – An Inspirational Treasure For Art, Design and Photography

The essence of Diwali or Deepawali lies in spreading the light of knowledge. It teaches us to leave the path of enmity and resort to friendship. Amidst the hustle bustle of the city life, this is one time when people come together to spend some quality time with together. Diwali, the Festival of Lights, is celebrated on a grand scale in the whole of India. It is one of the most popular festivities of the country that is celebrated with splendor and grandeur. When it comes to Diwali celebrations, there is a spark in the eyes of each and every person. Everybody feels excited at the thought of adorning their sweet homes with various kinds of decorative items like candles and small clay lamps.

Though Diwali may be just known as a Festival of Lights to many people, being a designer, a developer or a simple person, I have known Diwali as a big part of Inspiration for myself. It plays a very important part to inspire my creativity.

Broadly, Diwali can be a source of inspiration for designers as well as photographers.

Photography

Believe it or not Diwali, the festival of lights, can be the best source of inspiration for the designers. Crackers, joy of families, expressions each and every moment to capture in the camera. You will get about every expression every image that you would think about during Diwali. Houses covered with lights all over, cities totally bathing in lights. Ligthing of houses with the use of “Diyas” is not new. Diyas are all set in a peculiar manner that could inspire any photographer from naive to professional, to any designer. Diwali is a time when the family members unite and stay together to celebrate, this could lead to moments which otherwise could be hard to capture.
