    Please note the 6th Training session is on Monday 1st April, at More Cafe, DIFC

    The training will start at 7 pm and end at 9 pm... I have mentioned the time in the meet up as 6 45 pm - 9 15 pm... the additional 15 mins for those want to come early or stay late to ask questions related to photography...

    We believe the location More Cafe is a preferred location for training, but to make it feasible for the Cafe, please do order food and coffee, or we will not have such a wonderful place for long...

    We also know the projected image from the projector was small and those sitting at the back, were having difficulty hearing me... both these issues will be rectified in the next session.

    We will be heading into compositions... If you all have any images that you aspire to click some day, send it to my email address [masked], and we will talk about the pictures...

      Ravi... exposure levels is a creative choice of the creator... more important is to practise and get the intended exposure without struggling too much with the camera... :)

  • Desmond L.

    I have a couple of questions: Please could you include how to achieve focus when you are trying to capture a subject facing open sky or direct sunlight, lets say an eagle far off in the sky. Secondly, I would also like to know why I get "dark blue shadows" when I shoot birds/subject that has a open background, will try to get the image if possible.

    March 24, 2013

    • Jason

      Noted... I will be talking focusing system today. About dark blue shadows... bring the image and will look at it closely...
