Thank you Santhosh. "

"I started with a less than basic knowledge of photography and practically knew nothing of the features of a camera, except for the auto mode. Learning from someone as experienced and knowledgeable as Santhosh was engaging, effective and fun. Santhosh ensured the curriculum was tailor made to work with the camera that I possess and he taught me with a whole lot of patience. The one on one class is just perfect and I was able to learn at my own pace. Practice sessions were great. And the best thing, he is open to answering any questions that you may have even after you are done with your classes. Thank you Santhosh, for being such an amazing teacher. I had a lot of fun, learned a lot and have gained a whole new perspective about cameras and photography. Any of you out there wanting to take up photography as a hobby or for any specific reason, do sign up with Santhosh. I can assure you, you will not be disappointed. "

"I have had the opportunity to be mentored by Santosh on my photography skills through his preset module. The charm of our interaction was in the fact that I totally was able deviate him from his topics and skip hope to something else. Although, that was planned for a later stage, he captured my interest and without a blink would successfully cultivate the topic of my interest. He holds vast experience and his mentoring (teaching) methodology consists of his own work. That brings confidence in the mentee (learner) of being able to achieve those skills too. Learning at the comfort of his home does not give you the feeling of a class rather a family. You become part of them. The beauty is 1: 1 where his sole attention is on you and your needs & interest rather than a curriculum driven learning. I strongly recommend Santosh as he goes out of the way and improvises on his contents and methods based on learner's aptitude. His learning material is customized to your assets and just generic photography kits. He collected all the details of my camera, lenses and accessories to be able to tell when and how to use what. Thank you Santosh for all the learning and becoming my go-to person for all photography needs. From equipment to tricks and traits. "

"The best part of Santosh is his teaching methodology. It's a perfect blend of art and technology. His way of teaching opens up the eye of looking things from a different perspective, which I feel a must for a photographer. It also helps to raise one's urge to learn about photography. Once this is done, the technicalities of photography can be learnt easily, and this is why Santosh 's teaching style is unique and exciting. He also shares his experiences while clicking some photos and that helps a lot for understanding real life issues. Moreover he is extremely friendly and listens to his students with lot of patience and responds accordingly. I personally feel that my passion of photography took an effective turn after having his classes. He helps to play within the complete photography world starting from learning to selecting the gears. I consider Santosh as a real mentor than a professional teacher. I strongly recommend his session if someone wants to learn photography and also wish Santosh a best of luck for his upcoming days. "

The JPEG on the other hand are compressed processed files of smaller file size and doesn't allow the kind of bandwidth a raw would for post processing. RAW image size is thus bigger than the JPEG. Reviewing pics on the camera LCD is not advised because the LCD is a small area cramped with pixels and doesn't show the dynamic range your computer screen would. Even on your computer, please view your pics on the picture viewer provided by your camera manufacturer instead of Microsoft picture viewer. The mpv does a horrible compression of your JPEG and wouldn't read your RAW. Hope this helps. All the best for your photography have fun and take care. Regards, Santosh J

Remember that once you bring in a flash you might want to balance between light from the flash with the available ambient light. Regards, Santosh J
