Hello Ernst and all, 

Would the Mo be the karaka for Photography? Film?

Mars (for light) to my understanding.

Venus for fashion and entertainment. (Film as entertainment.)

@meyes Actually Mars isn't the karaka for sight. That is the portfolio of the Sun. Both Sun and Mars are of agni tattwa, but the Sun is sattwik; Mars is a tamas graha and cannot give vision or sight.

Yes, Ve for the entertainment aspect plus the beauty aspect. 

I am asking about the raw photo or the raw footage aspect. Ma does rule sight.

@scott-m-19 Yep. I´m pretty sure it´s Mars. But lets see what Ernst has to say.

@meyes Did Ernst ever clarify the karaka for photography?

@scott-m-19 Can you quote from Parashara to support Mars ruling sight?

@sriraj 

I do not recall anything from parashara that relates to your question. Ernst, in his book, Graha Sutras, has a chapter on the five elements based on various texts including Parashara and Srimad Bhagavatam. 

Mars rules the Fire element. The organ of action from the fire element is sight since the fire element rules the sense of sight.

@scott-m-19 Yes, Mars is a co-ruler of agni tattva, but Surya, the main luminary, is the graha that is the SOURCE of all heat and light in our solar system, and not Mars. All 3 agni tattva graha (Sun, Mars and Ketu), as well as Venus (who sits in the agni kona of the dik chakra) influence different aspects of fire, but Surya is primary, as the naisargika ATMA KARAKA, and is the only SATTVIK agni graha, and thus the giver of sight and vision, as confirmed in Rig Veda.

I tried to upload a pdf of Chakshu Upanishad to suppprt my statements but for some reason this forum is not allowing me to upload it for some strange reason.

I have the association of Mars ruling photography I think from the classes Ernst taught and the link between Mars and the action of sight.  But the footage/film aspect, is that the art itself?  And if so would that be under the governance of Venus?
