It should have been a better photograph. Of course. But then again, this photograph is more about the day than the perfection. After almost 1.5 years of owning a DSLR, I finally attended a photography basics workshop. This was organised by Toehold and conducted by Sachin Rai, a renowed wildlife photographer. He took such patience to help all the participants understand the basics of shutter speed, aperture and many other basics! 🙂 It was a truly enlightening and full paisa-vasool session.
In this image, Sachin was trying to help us capture motion using slow shutter speed – yes, amongst other things (including waving a Bisleri bottle for a good 15 mins!), he ran across the room to allow us to capture an image! 🙂
Hopefully with this workshop and a whole lot of practice, I will be able to graduate from a hit-and-trial photographer to a seriously good photography hobbyist.
