Photography: Learn How To Point, Shoot And Get It Right

Whether you’re a  photographer by passion or profession – or both – but need some extra training, help is available. A host of photography courses and workshops, conducted by professionals, hosted by camera companies, can help beginners and professionals build on their skills. Whether you are set on portrait photography or nature photography, these courses might help.

India’s incredible diversity – of cultures, languages, religions and terrain – makes it a singularly rich haven for photographers of every hue. Many Indian youth in the cities and towns also pursue photography as a hobby, sharing their shots on image sharing sites and other social media.

For those among the hobbyists who hope to improve their skills in particular areas of photography – portrait photography, fashion photography, editorial photography, wildlife photography – or hope to turn professional, a host of courses and workshops are available. Some classes and tutorials are online; others are in-person only. Some will involve practical work and assignments; others won’t. The most expensive ones also involve an element of travel. Where the cost was in US dollars, the amount was converted into rupees as per the conversion rates prevailing in mid-February.

Given below are some options for different levels of skill.
