MINDSCREEN FILM INSTITUTE, Chennai, a venture of Rajiv Menon, Director-Cinematographer, besides its regular courses on Cinematography and Screenwriting, is coming up with a four days’ workshop at Pondicherry “HERITAGE, STREET & LANDSCAPE PHOTOGRAPHY “from 2nd to 5th April 2015.
It’s a 4 days full time workshop, an opportunity to aspiring candidates who have a passion and desire for photography, to gain a deeper appreciation of one's creativity, explore effective avenues of Photography, discover and develop skills for better image projection, tricks and techniques of effective photography. The workshop is designed for a wide range of audience ranging from individuals with interests in Photography for any professional willing to explore what goes into the creation of beautiful landscape, Heritage images, from sweeping panoramas to capturing intimate street scenes. You will receive an in-depth study of landscape composition concepts and techniques, helping you create and capture your creative vision of the amazing street scenes we visit. We will review everything from equipment and exposure settings, to how to find those stunning places and “work” a scene. During the workshop we will cover most all aspects of landscape, Heritage and street photography.
The Philosophy behind the workshop has been to awaken the creative photographer hidden in many people who have not had the opportunity to explore photography as a career. These are people who love taking pictures but have been baffled by the technologies involved in digital photography, or those who are inspired by the beauty of what they see but are frustrated that they cannot transform that experience into a great picture. The workshop is meant to guide such people and give them a start in the right direction.
