First photography workshop in Utah

I am really glad today. I did my first photography workshop this weekend and I will call it as great success. Even though there was a good turn around when I published that I am planning for my workshop, four friends decided to keep their Sunday for the workshop. All the rest of the interested people have asked for another day this year, but I guess I won’t be doing another one in 2011.
The workshop started with discussing the basics of photography, the top required skills for photography, equipment etc. I selected a few of my best shots in various category (portrait, landscape, wildlife , lighting etc). Then we started taking a few pictures in the apartment gardens. They followed my words and decided to shoot only in Manual mode, making an end to the use of auto mode. We also drove to Red butte gardens and the sugar house park , the rest of the day taking tons of pictures. Here are some of the pictures that my STUDENTS (sigh :) ) shot that day. Check out how well they shot the pictures with a few hours of training. Great work guys.

  1. I don’t know any basics of photography, except using auto mode. Now I know how to use my SLR camera, how to manage all options (aperture, Shutter speed, ISO) manually instead of going for AUTO let my camera do that stuff. Water fall picture Trick, silhouette and Marco are my best pick and Light room tour is awesome.
    It was very good workshop and many many thanks to Ratish for this.

  2. I bought Nikon D90 SLR for my birthday in feb and since then i was only using my camera in Auto mode without knowing the various manual options and how good your pictures can be when taken from manual mode. Ratish was very patience with us during the workshop and he started with a classroom session where he helped me understand my camera better, basics of photography, manual modes and how to use the various manual modes. After classroom sessions, we went to three different spots taking pictures with Ratish and pratising eveything we learnt during the classroom sessions – It was a pleasure to have Ratish right next to me sharing tips and his wealth of knowledge while i was trying different shots outdoor.
    We ended the day with learning about Light room and going over the pictures that we took during the day.
    It was an ultimate experience and thanks Ratish for organizing the workshop!
