If TV cameras are OK, why not still cameras?

6 July 2010

The courts do not allow photographers to shoot pictures inside a courtroom, although they will allow illustrators to get away drawing courtroom scenes which have almost no likeness with reality.

Ditto, the legislature.

This, above, is a scene from the Vidhana Soudha in Bangalore where a joint session of the State legislature is on. Photographers are not allowed in although television videographers are. Therefore lensmen like T.A. Hafeez, former chief photographer of The Hindu, have to make do with whatever support they can get.
