"Santosh Sir's approach is very intuitive and informative. Also he tailors the course as per the student's requirements. I had started learning photography with another tutor who unfortunately passed away. He picked up the course where I left and took it forward. I had a wonderful experience learning with him and I highly recommend him for anyone who is looking to learn photography. "

"It was a wonderful experience learning photography tricks from Santhosh. He gets into details of my requirement before preparing the course content and was ready to spend that extra hour to make sure I understand the technicalities of each feature. Feedback on the my capture’s with Do’s and don’ts , giving tips on my strength and weakness in photography were really helpful. Overall Course has helped me exploring all possible options available in my camera and use them effectively at the right time to get best possible results. "

"I am really delighted to have got the opportunity to get trained by Santosh. Actually Santosh isn't a trainer, he is a mentor. You can be in touch with him even after the course and he will help you to tell you where you are doing right or wrong. His specialty is that he gets to the level of student & from there he trains him/ her. He has vast knowledge and experience of photography. I was very comfortable getting trained by him. Each and every concept was thoroughly covered & taught with deep understanding. Not only this, he is able to connect & discuss real life scenarios when you travel or go for some sport activity and you need to click a picture kind of. So, all in all It was really great getting trained by him. Now I need to practice to get better on this. Thank you so much Santosh. Be in touch. "

"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
