A wedding photographer would give you a bit of free advice: get everyone out of the way - if the bride and the groom didn't have to feature in the album, he'd have them out of the way too. But if you'd like some advice worth Rs. 750, here it is.
For the very first time in India, Nikon and Better Photography are conducting a photography workshop called Secrets Of Photography at JNTU, on 4th October. The workshop is on from 9:30am to 6pm.
The agenda of the workshop is
- Introduction to different genres of photography
- Making a simple photographic setup (with demonstration)
- Easy-to-do flash photography techniques
- Live sessions on table-top and portrait photography
This workshop aims to spread awareness about photography to participants, through easy-to-do fun ideas, creative techniques and highly interactive Q&A sessions and demos. It will be conducted by photographer and Group Photo Editor of Infomedia18 Ltd, Shiresh R Karrale.
The sessions will be interactive, gradually drawing the participant through different genres, and then focusing on people pictures or table-tops. It will involve both Q&A and demonstration sessions, followed by a review session for participants who're interested in having their photographs reviewed. Subjects discussed and techniques demonstrated at the workshop will be flexible depending on what the majority of the audience is keen on.
