Why Do You Need This Photography Workshop?

To learn photography is more than fun, it can be a powerful tool of self-expression. But first, you need mastery of your camera and the critical fundamentals. So you can merely look at a scene and know what to do. Like how you can whizz through a gap in traffic before anyone can utter ‘barnacles!’

If you’d like the concepts of photography to be clear as daylight and enshrined in you like a mummy in a pyramid, if you’d like to bridge the gap between what you see and what you get, join this photography course in Bengaluru and let us train you to be a sharp-shooter. Of the artistic kind.

Does this sound like you?

  • I shoot only in the auto or the manual mode. Auto’s easy and manual’s the best. Right?
  • I don’t know why my pictures are all blurry when I open them on the computer.
  • What’s ISO? And what ISO do I use in low light?

If yes, the Basics of Photography Workshop is just what you need!
