A phone camera is a tool with great potential which we will be explored in this workshop. You will be learning skills like understanding light, composing a frame, handling the camera. The idea is to turn each of those hundred photos that are shot on a weekly basis into a well thought, beautifully composed image. Photographers around the world have used the cell phone camera to produce phenomenal photo stories of diverse nature, the workshop would be looking at and discussing such works as well.
Participants will be looking at their photographs and will be discussing works as well. Everything that participants will learn in this workshop will continue to be of benefit them throughout their future photography endeavours regardless of which camera you use. And their works will be displayed on the conclusive day of the workshop.
*High-tea and material will be provided by us on all three days.
*All the participants of the workshop will have access to all the day events and cultural performances of the fest excluding Drum Circle registration.
