About the Course

How do I blur out the background? Is Manual mode better than Auto? Why do photographers shoot in RAW? Which memory card should I use? Why are my pictures blurry? How do I protect my camera? What is focal length? How much ISO should I use? Can I use a flash outdoors? How do I take sharper pictures? (And finally) Is Canon better or Nikon?


If this sounds familiar, you have either invested in a D-SLR or are planning to get one. Although this is a good first step, the seemingly infinite controls, parameters, and the jargon can be a little daunting even for the most dedicated aspirant. With this in mind, the workshop on 'Basics of Photography' has been designed to provide professional guidance to hobbyists and aspiring photographers while they build their creative personas in photography.

Taha is a young professional who has a very clear ideas. I would strongly recommend him to people who are just beginners and want to know what is in the DSLR. The thing about photography is how much someone teaches you about photography it accounts to very little, once u know what is what it is self learning. But don't worry you will not be disappointed by Taha.

The class for was very informative and covered all the basics required for photography. For somebody like me who had zero knowledge about photography and its aspects, the course provided the much needed base and by the end of the class I went back with the necessary theoretical and practical expertise. Taha's experience and proficience showed all through out the workshop. The nuances of photography were made simpler by him.

Rupake Jo

I decided to attend this course after reading a lot about photography basics on Internet which was confusing to me at times!! Taha's training session was helpful to easily understand the typical 'jargon' used in the industry ,various techniques used by professionals and rules of picture composition. I would recommend this course for those who are serious about photography and looking for a stepping stone to take your interest to the next level.
