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.
