ABOUT THE WORKSHOP:
Were you gifted a shiny, new dSLR and have no clue what to do with it? Or perhaps you were excited to buy one for yourself but have still not been brave enough to take it out of its box? Do aperture, shutter-speed and ISO sound like Latin and Greek to you? Ever wondered about the fuss for shooting in manual mode? Cannot figure the reason why your photos don’t look as nice as you imagine them to be? Or do you still believe that megapixels matter?
If you answered yes to any of these questions, then this is the workshop for you! We start right from the basics to familiarize you with your camera, go through all the fundamental concepts of photography and have practical sessions with demos to understand the what, why & how of shooting. By the end of the day, expect to confidently shoot beyond the Auto-mode, start developing your own aesthetic sense and open your eyes to the many possibilities of digital photography.
