Photography is a language and one should know the grammar well to become an expert.
~Bandi Rajan Babu
Composition is the strongest way of seeing..
There are always two people in every picture: the photographer and the viewer.
A portrait is not made in the camera but on either side of it.
In photography there is a reality so subtle that it becomes more real than reality.
Whether you are a true beginner, an aspiring amateur or seasoned professional, our sophisticated and focused classes are created with you in mind. We design programs that expose our students to the technical as well as the creative aspects of photography. Students acquire valuable insights into the essential theories of photography, but at the same time continue with a keen focus on hands-on learning. Our programs will introduce you to the key areas of photography, including exposure calculation, depth-of-field, effective composition guidelines, and acquiring the reflexes to use your camera to get consistent high quality results.
Each session is tailored to show you how to get the most from your camera and accessories and be inspired to take more creative shots.
