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.
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 online photography courses or spending endless nights browsing photography related contents through the internet.
You can’t have too much 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 brings a big gap in learning curve, you can’t see your fault that is, you will need a professional photographer with years of experiences to show you. You will be amazed at the end of your chosen photography courses or workshops that photo editing is no longer required in your list of “must do” for photography.
To allow maximum learning for our participants, we decided to conduct our photography courses & workshop in a smaller class. So that every pictorial photography course & workshop participant will receive the best quality guidance from our professional photographer, while most of the photography courses & workshops are conducted in bigger class size.
Through our years of photography guiding & professional shooting experiences, our photographers has formulated and carefully arranged our contents in teaching, allowing participants whom have zero or near zero knowledge to obtain a strong foundation in photography techniques and pictures built to impressed without the aid of any editing software in a short span of time. Saving you both money and time.
Keith, along with your other photography mentors will show & guide you into their world of artistic photography. To see more of Keith’s works, you may visit our photography gallery.
Pictures are created by the photographer’s intention, it should not be purely an end product of an editing software. Ever since Pictorial started guiding students in our photography courses, post processing techniques via editing software were kept out of reach for our participants.
Understanding photography techniques via full manual level of control and not P/A/S modes, camera systems and lenses, correct usage of filters & understanding 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 photography editing tasks, so using software editing could be a much more easier task compared to using experiences which most of the people do not have in photography. However using experience instead of a software although tiring, could give you a marvellous sense of satisfaction.
With these intentions, Pictorial series of photography courses & workshops were born. To equip our participants with strong foundation in photography techniques & composition though outdoor photography sessions, so that at the end of each session every brilliant picture is created by the photographer and not an editing software.
To achieve the above, our photographers with at least 19 years(or above) of professional photography experiences will ensure that each participant will be able to spend more quality time with them, to solve the questions of indivudual on subjects and aspects of their interested area of photography.
Our photographers does not favor classroom sessions, although much more efforts are 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. Through our rich experiences in photography, we strongly understand that, you don’t need expensive & heavy equipment to get good photos, you just need the correct equipment, lenses, knowledge & guidance, to complete one good picture.
Hence, Pictorial series of photography courses 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 power point presentations.
