Photography 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 Workshop and let us train you to be a sharp-shooter. Of the artistic kind.

What does this Workshop offer?

Photography is an art as well as science. That’s why this Workshop delves into both. It starts with the basics, addresses the advanced, and polishes the nuances. In sum, it will turn the camera and photography concepts into extensions of your body and mind.

So matters of exposure, focusing and metering don’t stand in your way when you wish to capture a unique moment. Or translate your glorious vision to an unforgettable picture.

The two-day Art and Science of Photography workshop held in Jan 2018 was just an amazing experience. Thank you for the lovely presentation and detailed explanation, it helped me control my camera the way I want. Also the arrangement made by Toehold was worth every penny. Looking forward to some tours conducted by Toehold.

Amazing experience…learning about getting away from auto and finetuning my knowledge of photography were the prime focus areas I thought of joining this workshop. We had an excellent and friendly tutor, explaining the intricacies of photography to the last detail. In a few days I am off to Sikkim, and hopefully will come back with much better results.

I got trained by a professional and Toehold ensured me I got enough skills to explore on my own and improve every time I click an image. I thank them for this.

It was my pleasure to attend your session. Finally I got an opportunity to attend though I have been planning for more than an year. Though it was just 2 days, I am sure that I earned more knowledge in these 2 days than I did myself from 15 months of time since I purchased my D-SLR.

The two-day program was fantastic and an eye-opener for me, especially because I thought I knew everything just because I had researched the internet. Thank you again for sharing your experiences and tips and tricks. I look forward to joining one of the Photography Tours organized by Toehold soon.
