Welcome To A Better Learning

Keith Low, Pictorial Mentor

The best way to learn and gain experience in photographic techniques is to go outdoor and practice, instead of reading photography books, signing up for an online photography course, or spending endless nights browsing photography-related content through the internet.

 

You can’t have too many theory sessions as photography is not done by taking down notes in classes. To understand photography, gaining real shooting experiences outdoor, you need to go out there and see how lighting changes, understand the characteristics of your camera/lenses and see the fault within yourself thus rectifying it.

 

However, the differences between shooting by yourself and with a professional photographer bring a big gap in the learning curve, you can’t see your fault that is, you will need a professional photographer with years of experience to show you. You will be amazed at the end of your chosen photography course or workshops that photo editing is no longer required in your list of “must-do” for photography.

 

To ensure quality learning for all participants, we’ve decided to conduct our photography courses in 3 Pax Small Group Class Size & 1 on 1 private class learning format. So that every pictorial photography course participant will receive the best quality guidance from our photography mentor while keeping our prices as reasonable as possible. Not to mention, participants will get to enjoy scheduling & rescheduling flexibility.

 

Through our years of photography guiding & professional shooting experiences, our photographers have formulated and carefully arranged our contents in teaching, allowing participants who have zero or near-zero knowledge to obtain a strong foundation in photography techniques and pictures built to impress without the aid of any editing software in a short period. Saving you both money and time.

Keith, along with other photography mentors will show & guide you into their world of artistic photography.

Our Guiding Philosophy

Keith Shooting At Participant

Creating a good picture is not about siting in front of a computer.

 

For some people, editing has become a huge part of photography. But not everyone wants to do a ton of editing to their images. Many people, like myself, prefer to approach photography more holistically.

 

For me, pictures are created by the photographer’s intention with a never-ending learning experience, it shouldn’t be purely an end product of editing software, disregarding the need to properly understand photography techniques.

 

Ever since I started guiding students in our photography courses, post-processing techniques using editing software were kept out of reach for my participants and understanding photography techniques using the full manual level of control, camera functionality, lenses characteristics, correct usage of filters & understanding nature of light became the main focus for our participants, thus gaining a good foundation in photography.

 

So if you wish to learn photo editing, please knock on the next door.

Some Of Our Clients

Given our proud track record and passion for photography, Pictorial has won the confidence and trust of some of the most respectable local-based organizations. Below are some of our workshop & photography services clients.

The Pictorial Philosophy

Definition Of Pic·to·ri·al: graphic: evoking lifelike images within the mind; “pictorial poetry and prose”; “a lifelike portrait”; “a vivid description.

Pictures are created by the photographer’s intention, it should not be purely an end product of editing software. Ever since Pictorial started guiding students in our photography course, post-processing techniques via editing software were kept out of reach for our participants.

Understanding photography techniques via the full manual level of control and not P/A/S modes, camera systems and lenses, correct usage of filters & understanding the nature of lighting will replace the need of going through any editing process for one picture. We live in a digital age where even our mobile phone could do some simple photo editing tasks, so using software editing could be a much easier task than using experiences that most people do not have in photography. However using experience instead of software although tiring, could give you a marvelous sense of satisfaction.

With these intentions, Pictorial series of photography courses & workshops were born. To equip our participants with a strong foundation in photography techniques & composition through outdoor photography sessions, so that at the end of each session every brilliant picture is created by the photographer and not editing software.

To achieve the above, Keith take charge of designing essentials photography content for all of the courses, ensuring every participant in gaining necessary knowledge and photography techniques aspects of their interesting area of photography.

We do not favor classroom sessions, although much more effort is needed to conduct a photography session outdoor, we don’t mind spending more effort on it, as it will enhance & accelerate the learning experiences of our students.

To continue your photography journey, you need passion instead of wonderful but pricey equipment. We strongly understand that you don’t need expensive & heavy equipment to get good photos through our rich experiences in photography. You just need the correct equipment, lenses, knowledge & guidance, to complete one good picture.

Hence, Pictorial series of photography course are maximized for outdoor shooting sessions, so that each participant will be able to gain real-world experiences of changing camera controls, understanding lighting effects & basic/creative compositions, instead of learning photography skills and techniques from PowerPoint presentations.

So what are you hesitating for? Join our most exciting series of outdoor photography course and learn how to capture your imagination now!
