Photography Workshop at Chhavi

Its been over 6years now (before starting writing this post I had 4-5 years in mind, but a quick check puts its at 6) — that I started taking photography seriously, or should I say I started taking serious photographs. I bought my first camera, Nikon FM 10, in Dec 2005. It served me good to take the first steps into photography. The next camera Canon 30D is closing in on its fifth birthday. It was bought in May 2007. Over these six years, I have been taking photos, although not very regularly but regularly enough to get a good grasp on the basic techniques, a good command over basics of aesthetics and an confidence that I can teach these fundamental to whoever who is willing to learn. Yes, I am ready to teach the basics of photography. I along with Priyanka (art teacher at Chaavi) am going conduct a workshop on photography. Here are some details:
