TIRED of learning the concepts in the CLASSROOM?
Here’s your chance to learn basics of photography in the field. Instead of reading and re-reading the same concepts—Exposure, Aperture, Shutter Speed, and ISO—over and over again without gaining any practical knowledge, practice them directly in the field.
By practicing it in the field and checking how each of these aspects changes the look and feel of the image help you make strides in your photography. You’ll stop wondering how things work and start making use of your camera sensibly and confidently.
LEARN the key photography concepts in the FIELD
There’s nothing more satisfying than being able to apply the concepts in the field and getting the results.
Here’s your chance to do all these things:
- Learn to use Aperture Priority, Shutter Priority, and Manual Modes.
- Learn when to use Manual Mode and when not use.
- Experiment with different Aperture values to see how it impacts (or doesn’t impact) the Depth of Field (DoF).
- Find out why Aperture is not the only factor affecting the Depth of Field (DoF). And how to get the Shallow DoF with any lens.
- Experiment with different Shutter Speeds to see its impact on the moving subjects.
- Experiment with different ISO values to see its impact on the resulting image concerning the noise.
- Learn to use Exposure Compensation to tweak the exposure to get best possible results.
- Find out the Sweet Spot of your lens where your lens gives the sharpest possible result.
- Learn hand-holding techniques to stabilize your camera.
- Learn how and when to use different focusing modes.
- Learn to post-process your images using Adobe Lightroom ®. It doesn’t matter if you have ever used it or not, you’ll have enough confidence to work with Lightroom after this session.
What Do We Shoot?
It could be anything that’ll help you understand the concept. We’ll be shooting various subjects like Glasshouse, Flowers, People, Monuments, etc.
Each participant will get a FREE 30-minutes review session (over a video call) of the post-processed images after the workshop. This is a crucial step in making sure you understand the post-processing concepts and to be able to apply them to your images.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
Q: How different is Field Photography Workshop from other 2-day Basic Photography Workshops?
A: Almost all the photography workshops deal with the theory first in the classroom and then allow you to practice the concepts in the field just for a few hours. This has two issues: first, this requires you to remember the concept and then apply it in the field, and the second, this allows you only a few hours to practice a whole lot of concepts.
A 2-Day Basic Photography Workshop is usually conducted for a large number of students (up to 20 people), which makes it almost impossible for you to get your mentor’s time and attention.
This field photography workshop helps you spend your entire time in the field. Working on each and every basic photography concept in the field and to check the results is the only way to gain practical knowledge. You’ll know what works and why it works.
The best part of this 2-day field photography workshop is the size of the team is just 6. You’d have greater opportunity to get my time and attention. Also, the interaction will be more fruitful as it’s a small team.
Q: I don’t have a DSLR, can I participate?
A: I don’t recommend. Because most of the concepts are very specific to the cameras that support complete Manual Mode control. If yours doesn’t, it’s not going to be very useful.
Q: Do I have to know the basics of Photography?
A: Not necessary. I cover all the basics in the workshop. But, you must at least know how to access different settings in your camera.
Q: Will you be covering types of photography like Portrait, Street, Landscapes, Birds, etc.?
A: No. It’s a basic photography workshop, and I strictly stick to the basic or foundational skills. Remember that you can only learn so much for in such a short span of time. There’ll be no magic happening, but definitely, you’d be a much better photographer than what you are today.
Q: I am confused between the 2-Day Field Photography Workshop and the Customized One on One Photography Workshop. What’s best for me?
A: Are you struggling with any of the following?
- To get clarity on the complex concepts of the DSLR
- To expose perfectly under all circumstances
- To make skillful usage of lighting
- To make simple and effective compositions that make you proud
- To post-process your images to bring that wow factor in your images without really haggling around with the complex techniques
If you said yes to many (or all) of these questions, then you should consider customized one on one photography workshop. You can get all your questions answered plus build strong foundational skills that’ll help you to become the kind of photographer you aim for.
Or, if you want complete attention and private tutoring, then customized photography workshops suits you the best.
NOTE: I conduct customized workshops in your place (provided your place has ample photographic opportunities) with an added cost.
On the other hand, if you are just starting out in photography and want to kick-start your photography, then 2-day field photography workshop is best for you. It’ll help you get to know your camera’s potential and lets you explore it further.
Q: How does the referral bonus work?
A: If you refer a friend to this field photography workshop, both you and your friend receive a discount of INR 1,000/- on the actual fee. That means you’ll pay INR 9,000/- each (assuming INR 10,000/- is the fee). Together you save INR 2,000/-.
If you refer two friends, then you’ll receive a discount of INR 2,000/-, and your friends will be given a discount of INR 1,000/- each on the actual fee. Together you save INR 3,000/-.
Anything more than three people, you can come as a group and get a group discount of INR 2,000/- each. Together you can save as much as INR 10,000/-.
Q: I am unable to attend the workshop this time, but can you schedule a workshop on some other suitable dates for me?
A: Yes, I can. It depends on my availability. If I am available, I need a minimum of 3 people to schedule a workshop on your proposed dates.
Q: I cannot come to Bangalore, can you hold such a basic field photography workshop in my city?
A: Yes, absolutely. Only if there’s a group of photographers willing to attend the workshop. You’ll have to take care of the logistics. Note that the charges will go up as I have to take care of my travel, stay, and accommodation. If you are interested, drop a mail to me.
Q: Do you conduct photography seminars for the corporates?
A: Yes, I do. If you want me to give a photography seminar in your company, contact me with your requirement. We can take it up from there.
Q: Do you conduct Customized Photography Workshops for a group?
