Night Photography Workshop

Join photographer Neeta Dhakad as she describes the tools, creative options, and special considerations involved in shooting with a DSLR camera at night or in low-light conditions, such as sunset or candlelight. The course addresses exposure decisions such as choice of aperture and shutter speed and how they impact depth of field and the camera's ability to freeze motion.
Neeta also shows how to obtain accurate color balance in tungsten and fluorescent lighting situations, and how to postprocess the images in Lightroom to remove noise caused by higher ISO settings. He also demonstrates accessories that can greatly expand your low-light photography options.

Brids Photography Workshop

Join Brijesh Dhaker & Neeta Dhakad and the birds in the rural location of Bhandup Pumping Station,Mumbai. A variety of birds of prey will be available to photograph, including majestic Herons, King Fisher, Little Owl, Myna and the beautifully marked Kestrel. You will see black-headed gulls fighting against puffins with beaks full of eels. You might also see seals popping out of the water. The site has some lovely natural settings and old farm buildings, so we'll get some genuinely wild looking images. You'll also have the opportunity to try your hand at some flight shots. Myself & Neeta will be available to offer guidance and tips where needed and you'll be sure to come away with some superb shots. We limit the workshops to 25 people so as not to get in each others way and ultimately to keep disturbance to the birds to a minimum.
