With a flair for eclectic photography-genres ranging from portraiture to architecture and fine-art to landscapes, young Rajiv Shyamsundar uses the camera as a palette of myriad hues. His work is distinctive and committed to pulling out that hitherto-unseen visual from the depths of his imagination to paint vivid images on a canvas of vibrant pixels, especially with his favourite genre of event photography.

Workshop Schedule

Theoretical discussion about cameras, lenses, basics of exposure and modes of shooting with different lighting gear. We also discuss by watching demonstrative shoots as to why and how different lights and accessories are used, the logic behind their settings and usage, and the different types of lighting setups. 

In the studio, we will have practical, hands-on sessions with each of the accessories discussed the previous day. We will have a live subject to shoot, and learn lighting types including directional light and multi-light setups. We will learn image options and how focal length impacts portraits.
This is followed by a session on post-processing images on Adobe Lightroom, during which we learn how to improve and enhance images for better impact.

After completing the Workshop, you receive a participation e-certificate. Apart of course from lifetime access to your Mentor and a warm welcome to Toehold Network. You will also receive access to our Fundamentals of Flash Webinar and Portrait Photography Webinar recordings.
