Photography Workshop | Break the Curse of Auto

The reason we hold back in our lives, is that we are afraid of failures.

The reason we do not go ahead and do new things, is because we think we cannot do it.


When is the last time, you did something for the first time?


This photography workshop aims to take the first time DSLR or High End Point and Shoot user and break the psychological shackles of AUTO MODE.

Auto Mode is a curse that we get used to and start living with because we get too comfortable with it, forgetting that there is a whole different world out there.

Sometimes, simple things get complex because we choose to look at it that way!
