Years of Experience in Photography Classes


Teaching Experience in detail in Photography Classes

Have been pursuing photography as a hobby since my childhood and Year 2006 was the point when the hobby turned into serious passion. I have dwelled in various genres of photography, experimenting, practicing and fine tuning my skills. My favorites being portraiture and landscape and floral close ups. I love to share not only my vast practical knowledge on Photography but also my extensive field experiences with my Photography Gear. UrbanPro has offered a perfect platform for me to teach (everyone says I am good at..) Photography. Join me on various customized courses, prepared with great care, keeping your specific experience levels, interests, and camera systems in mind. Each category focuses on course plans designed to give you comprehensive exposure to photography concepts, introduces you to various genres of photography and gives you deep insights into your creative side and also your camera gear. Class room sessions embedded with practical discussions makes it a wholesome experience for you and inspires you to go out and make photos.

"I enjoyed sir's classes. I enrolled for 8 hours course but took me 11-12 hours to finish up in depth. My classes are mostly theoretical classes. Sir gives you tasks to work in between and explain how to do it which is very helpful. I entered as a noob and after the course I can take good quality images. "

"Great mentor so far !! Santosh's knowledge around photography & techniques is amazing. He carries his photography passion every moment in his life which in deed makes him a best mentor. During the course, I realized that my gadget can do wonders and my interest levels further elevated in exploring photography. Santosh was flexible and enthusiastic to guide few techniques over the phone to make one of my events successful. His excitement to share his success stories and interesting facts on photography are priceless and inspiring !!! "

"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
