Frequently Asked Questions

I am a complete beginner in photography. Is this Workshop recommended for me?

Absolutely! This Workshop does not assume any pre-existing knowledge of photography and is suitable for learners of all skill levels. If you are a complete beginner, you should sign up for the Workshop right away, as we’re sure you’ll find it really helpful!

I'm not conversant with the basics of photography. Will this Workshop still be useful for me?

We believe processing is best done on images whose basics are sound. Therefore, if you’re not conversant with the basics of photography yet, we recommend you consider joining our Art and Science of Photography Workshop first.

How do I register for the Workshop?

You can register for the Workshop by filling out the registration form below, or calling us on 1800-1200-901, or emailing us at  workshops@toehold.in.

How do I pay the Workshop fee?

We have multiple payment options including online transfer, from which you may choose one as per your convenience. Details will be shared when we receive your enquiry.

Why don't you instruct using other image-processing applications?

To keep the Workshop content simple, our instruction will be restricted to Adobe products because they are the most advanced and capable tools for digital image processing. Having been trained on these, you should be able to use any equivalent application since the concepts are general.

What version of Lightroom should I have?

In order to be able to relate to all the features discussed during the Workshop, you must have Lightroom 5 or later, preferably the latest version. Please visit the Adobe website if you are not sure whether it’s up to date.

What if I do not have Adobe Lightroom?

If you do not have licensed versions of Adobe Lightroom installed on your machine, you may download trial versions from the Adobe site. If you’ve already tried them before and your trial has expired, we encourage you to consider purchasing or subscribing at least for a temporary period. Please visit the Adobe website for purchase and subscription options.

I have paid for the Workshop but cannot attend. Can I get a refund?

If you cannot attend the Workshop after paying for it, please let us know before the last Monday before the Workshop and we’ll give you a credit note for 100% of the amount, which can be used to avail of any of our services. If you cancel after the Monday but before the Thursday ahead of the Workshop, we will issue a credit note worth 50% of the amount. Unfortunately, if you inform us of your intent to cancel after the Thursday before the Workshop or do not inform us at all, we cannot issue a credit note, nor can we make cash refunds under any circumstances.
