National Geographic Photography Workshop

If you are in Bangalore this weekend, then do swing by for a 2 hour free workshop on Photography which I’m doing with National Geographic. More details here.

The exhibit of the winners of the Nat Geo Moment Awards will be displayed for rest of the day at the British Council after the workshop.

    good show!

    Hey kalyan!

    I was there for the afternoon workshop. I really loved it. What I liked about your workshop was that you dissected what went to make a good photograph ( much like the mutton biryani analogy) and then backed it up with good examples. Way to to go!

    btw, do u ve ur presentation online somewhere? I missed out on the later parts of your presentation as I had an urgent appointment elsewhere.

    Glad to hear you liked the workshop Priya.

    Jacques Lartigue work is considered one of the best ever. I was quite influenced by his work in my early days of photography.. too bad I only do wildlife photography these days

    Hi Kalyan,

    I attended the afternoon worshop and i thought it was great!It was very nice to actually see people who made it big in this industry.Nice inspiration for aspiring people.

    And the thing you mentioned about having/showing stories through photographs was a very good pointer for amateur photographers like me. Thank you for a wonderful session!

    I’m too jittery about wildlife photography :$ , I did get to spend some time with Fateh Singh when I was in Ranthambore for a year..and I liked observation more I guess..

    I try a hand at this and that – some food photography as well, that you might find amusing!:D..

    I now understand what I click:)

    Hey thanks for giving a peep into the world of photography with such simple analogies. I’m a feature writer for whom street photography should carry the essence of the story. I came here to understand how to shoot better photos & learnt a lot. Next time I have a doubt, I’ll go open a window:)

    Hi Kalyan, it was really a wonderful session, though a beginner I got to know the unknowns about photography. I am using Sony Dsc H50, a megazoom camera and has a features of SLR, through this session I got lot’s of tips towards better, indeed best photography. Hoping to meet you in near future in some workshop….. Thank you once again…..
