DSLR, Unplugged - Workshop SynopsisWhat this DSLR photography workshop is all about
The Authoritative Workshop on the Basics and Fundamentals of DSLR Photography
A meticulously designed to-the-point weekend photography workshop in Mumbai – India, designed to instill a rock-solid foundation and understanding of precisely the skills you need to master your DSLR and help you make great photographs in the shortest possible time.
Go on, admit it! You bought your DSLR, read the manual. And then you mentally said “Somebody help me! This frigging stuff is confusing the living daylights out of me! Could someone please cut through the crap and explain it to me in a fashion that I can understand and employ to master the DSLR?!?!?!”
I’m not surprised, not one bit! All those controls on your DSLR can be quite confusing. Scary actually. And then all those technical terms that are part and parcel of a DSLR. Stuff like “Aperture Priority Mode”, “Shutter Priority Mode”, “Manual Mode”, “ISO”, and the list goes on. And it scares and confuses you more. And you put your expensive DSLR away. Or use it in Auto Mode. What a waste of money, time and aspirations to take good pictures…
You know, it really doesn’t have to be that way!
Conducted in Mumbai, the “DSLR, Unplugged – The Authoritative Workshop on the Fundamentals and Basics of DSLR Photography” is the fastest way to learn how to master your DSLR camera. Cutting no corners, it teaches you exactly what you need to learn to master your DSLR and start taking good pictures – no more, no less.
Technical jargon can befuddle the best of us, and the fastest way to get lost in that maze of technicalities is to not have the benefit of having a competent and passionate trainer explain things to you in the simplest – yet most comprehensive – fashion.
With almost three decades of experience as a trainer and public speaker, and over two decades of experience as a photographer, I’m here to bridge that gap between your DSLR and You!
Your DSLR is a pretty mean and powerful machine, capable of taking amazing photographs. But it can’t do that on its own, you have to explicitly tell it what to do. You could leave the DSLR on Program or Auto mode and take the average ho-hum type photos (and occasionally, a good one), or you can choose to bridge the gap between the DSLR and yourself. This workshop teaches you how to.
Ready to bridge the gap? Ready to step onto the Dancefloor that is your DSLR?
I really don’t know why people are so obsessed with terms such as “Mastering Light” and end up thinking it’s about “Controlling the Light”. You don’t control Light, you dance with Her!
What you'll learnA brief look at the topics covered in the DSLR Photography Workshop
Master your DSLR, Part 1:
They call Photography “painting with light”. I prefer to call it Dancing with Light .

In this module of the DSLR, Unplugged Photography Workshop you’ll learn how to do just that. Topics covered include:
