Eindhoven News is becoming a platform for learning and teaching too. This is quite evident from the interest of award-winning photographer Asha Pradeep in sharing her knowledge with Eindhoven News team. In turn, we at Eindhoven News would like to share some information with you.
There is a lot more to photography than just using a high-quality DSLR camera. You can do a lot better if you learn to use your camera in the right way. So for the people who have invested in a DSLR or planning to buy one, it was a good idea to attend the workshop “Know Your Camera” by Asha Pradeep Photography.
This workshop was presented by Asha Pradeep an award-winning portrait photographer. She is based and has a boutique studio in Utrecht. Asha is well known for newborn baby photography, maternity and family shoot. In addition to being a photographer, she is a fulltime IT consultant. Asha is also an educator on the subjects from the basic of photography, to business, marketing.
During this workshop, she explained about the exposure triangle. Namely, aperture, shutter speed and ISO which are the elements that combine to create an exposure. Asha points out “Once you understand how each one works, you can start diving into manual mode and really take that control back from your camera”.
The exposure triangle is a great way to remember that three settings control the amount of light captured from any given scene. Live examples where provided to analyze a photo and its components.
At the end of the workshop participants were also allowed to try and implement the theory by taking photos of each other. During which they also learnt how to read light, angle and posing of the subject.
Overall, it was a great knowledge gathering session for the Eindhoven News team. Thank you, Asha, for all the effort in making the presentation as interesting as possible and providing some superb photos at the end.
