"It was a great learning experience from you sir. I did suggest one of my student Nithin, who is passionate of photography (wild life) to attend Mr Santhosh studio. After attending classes of Santhosh sir, Nithin perception about photography has changed in him, as what are the basic need to click a photo and to be different from normal clicks of every other non-photographer. This is ever important to differentiate between normal ones and professional. I am very happy that my student has developed the science of photography skills and even life skill from Mr. Santhosh. I would suggest Nithin to continue in furthermore classes and in the hands of you, sir, he can achieve of becoming the best photographer. Wish to work in associate with you sir. Thank you. "

I had a wonderful time while explaining LR and impromptu, I had to rework the curriculum to fit in the many photography concepts that you had to understand first so you could understand the LR processing workflow better. Thanks for the opportunity. Do keep in touch and I can assist with any questions you might have in the future. Regards, Santosh J www.visualauthors.in

"How to start i don't know but it's awesome experience. SJ make me nothing to something . SJ explained me with his practical experiences , its help me to improve myself in day to day photography. I am very much thankful to urban pro give me a chance select such a nice gentleman like Mrs santosh jayaraman as a photography mentor. "

"I loved clicking pictures but when it came to using my DSLR, I had zero confidence and skills. I tried learning everything myself but it was too confusing. That’s when Santosh came into the picture. He simplified the camera for me. We would do a lot of indoor + outdoor sessions on the concepts he taught. I understood the holy trinity, ISO, Aperture and Shutter Speed, better. He reviewed each and every picture that I took and gave advice on how I could do better. I was sometimes lazy in practicing the concepts taught, but he would without fail reiterate the previous classes’s concept thus explaining me things again, things which I had forgotten. He was very patient with me. Never rushed me to finish off the course. Santosh is someone who has to be the best mentor out there for photography, who charges you by the concepts you learn and not by the hour. All in all it was a great user experience. "

"I should be thankful to him for guiding me throughout my journey in becoming a photographer since I had zero knowledge about photography prior coming here . He understood my requirement and guided me which DSLR and Lens to buy . He helped me understand most of the advanced concepts in photogragy and shared his vast experience and tips to take good photographs. Now I have become confident enough as I have started taking pictures of models .I feel I gained more knowledge with less money. "

Thanks Rakesh, it's been an incredible journey..from reviewing and getting your first camera gear to the point where you could break the comfort barrier and your the images took an exponential leap in quality. All the best..we will definitely stay in touch..

"I started photography learning from Santhosh from Jan 2019, and I impressed with his teaching method and teaches photography very well and he his not time constraint about the classes and he explains properly and he ready to clarify the doubts at any time.He is a very good mentor and I am very much happy with Santhosh learning photography. Thank you Santhosh. "

S

"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. "

We had a great time discussing photography..thats how our sessions turned out to be. Many interesting and indepth interactions. We will surely be in touch..Thanks..

"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. "

"It was a wonderful experience with you sir. Such a great mentor and a good human being as well.

You explained every little things so well and the best thing is you are very friendly which made me feel more comfortable. Thank you for everything sir and I am looking forward to make it out of what i've learned from you in future. I Suggest everyone who wants to learn essentials of photography please go for it without second thoughts. Thank you santosh jayaram."

"It is rare to find someone with so much talents and also having the ability to communicate effectively and provide an atmosphere that is inspiring to learn. He is an extremely enthusiastic and affirming instructor and I learned a lot to help me take my photographic skills to next level. His knowledge of photography and willingness to share that is a true gift. He taught me how to begin to "see " the world looking for color, textures and the simplicity of beauty. Now whenever I use a camera I ' see ' differently. Thank you so much for teaching me how to take great photos by adjusting composition, border control, exposure etc. I honestly think that for the first time I am really starting to understand my camera and how it works. He is having a natural ability to convey complex ideas in a clear and understandable way. I was really impressed with the amount of information he imparted and the practical application it was just spot on. I have taken away many useful ideas to apply to future photography session.His knowledge of photography is first class, he has a passion for photography which is in itself contagious.I would definitely recommend Mr.Santhosh to anybody who has an interest in photography; whether they be relatively experienced or a complete novice.

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

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... ...more
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
