Photography and Post Processing Workshop - PUNE Sept 2017
It is easy to pick up the camera and start clicking. But the core differentiating factor from taking an image to making an image involves 4 key components without which your photography is incomplete. Did you know that there are at least 15 different things you need to take care of before hitting the shutter release button?
Your mentor, Sudhir Shivaram, will take you through each of these key components and help you master them with ease.
As part of the workshop, 3 of your images will be reviewed and critiqued to enable better understanding of these 15 tasks.
Sudhir’s images are frequently featured in various magazines including National Geographic, Sanctuary Asia, Saevus and a host of other online publishing media. He will also share tips on what it takes to get your images published.
