"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 Photography class with Santhosh sir was very informative at the same time enjoyable. He has indepth knowledge in various areas of photography, the photographic gears and how to use them effectively. He shares his knowledge with enthusiasm. His passion about photography is tangible in his classes. I got to learn a lot from him in a short span of time. He shared theoretical know how of subject selection, observation methods,use of lens ,guidelines for composition, histogram, macro, product photography and so on. His expert guidance helped me in perfecting camera settings get best pictures. Attending his class has motivated me to unearth more and more in the field of photography. I am really grateful to Mr.Santhosh for his patience to help me and motivate me. "

"Is raw file better than jpeg? When I compare raw with jpeg file after clicking from my camera, both look same. What's the difference?" in   Photography, Photography/Basics of Photography

If you are going to process your image, yes RAW is better. 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

"Should I use flash during day time while taking portraits ?" in   Photography, Photography/Fashion Photography, Photography/Basics of Photography

If there is a need to fill in the hard shadows on the subject due to the way the subject is positioned (if the light source is behind the subject/if the subject is wearing headgear, cap, hat or heavy jewelry etc) then you might want to use fill flash and for added effect you can use a diffuse screen to further spread and soften the lighted emitted from the flash. 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

"How soon can I learn about basic Photography?" in   Photography, Photography/Basics of Photography

How soon depends on how fast you are able to grasp the concepts of shutter speed, Aperture and ISO and their relationship and other concepts of light including framing and composition. The more you practice the more you learn. The secret lies in practice. Take every opportunity you get to photograph. All the best. Regards, Santosh J
