Photography workshop by Desikan Krishnan of The Hindu

Today, photography has not only become a way of life but is also a powerful mode of expression and communication. From smartphone ‘selfies’ to the DSLR, the number of images shot has multiplied a few hundred times over the past five years.
Most digital cameras and even upmarket smartphones give you fairly decent pictures, but how to improve and make the pictures better, what happens inside the camera, how to make people sit up and take notice of the pictures you have clicked, all this and much more you will get to learn at the weekend photography workshops conducted by D. Krishnan, former Photo Editor at The Hindu.
The weekend workshop spread over one-and-a-half days will lay emphasis on the basics of what a camera is and how to handle it, understanding specific photographic terms and what they mean, and practical uses of carrying a camera with you.
Simple, easy-to-use lighting techniques for better portraits and close-up shots, and effective use of shutter speed, aperture and ISO combinations to create the effect you desire will also be discussed at the workshop.
