Contrary to popular belief, creativity is not a talent given to a select few. It is a process and a set of learn-able skills. Creative thinking often starts with different thinking. There are ways you can purposefully open your mind to a new perspective to see if it changes the way you think about and approach composition in photography. Hence in the world of intermediate photography, the power of imagination brings the difference between photographers. Equipment used might be similar, however thoughts on creation of the picture in similar condition by different photographers will bring forth different creative results. Creative expertise is all about combining modern theory with relevant functional abilities. Our program is specifically designed to the critical thinking process, visual literacy in comprehending images and their final implementations. Basically it equips amateur learner aesthetically, mechanically and professionally for a future in photography.
Video and audio works hand in hand to bring the best in videography, but how about photography?
