Frequently Asked Questions

Who Will Be My Photography Mentor?

Each participant will be guided by Keith Low, Founder Of Pictorial

Why Pictorial Doesn’t Have Editing or Post Processing In Our Course Module?

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 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. In Short, it is our holistic way of practicing photography.

If There Is Only My Sign-up In A Particular Date Which I Sign Up For, Will Pictorial Postpone It?

We are busy, you are as well, we believe that as long as a Pictorial student has already signed up for a course which even though has insufficient participants, we should continue in conducting the course. It’s our way of showing you our appreciation for trusting us with your precious time for the course and signing up with us. This redefines standards, in common photography course practices by other courses vendors. So officially there is only a 1 minimum participant requirement in our Course, Lessons, Class, Workshop & Guided Field Trip. Keith will continue to conduct the Photography Course, Lessons, Class & Workshop even when there is at least 1 participant, unless it is due to unforeseeable wet/bad weather conditions.

I Hate Indoor Sessions, Will There Be Too Many Indoor Sessions?

A proven formula, this is the way Keith has practiced since he started photography! Keith believes that the best way of gaining photography understanding is through practical experiences, e.g.; when you attend a driving course, how many theory and practical will you have to go through. The answer is there, Maximum practical and less theory. Gaining photography techniques or brushing up your photography level is to go outdoor and practice that in our opinion is the best way to learn and gain experiences Instead of reading on photography books, signing up online photography course or spending endless nights on 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.

I Need To Reschedule due to Personal Commitments!

Have problem with one of your Courses, Lessons, Classes & Workshops registered dates? No worries, we are fully flexible, you may reschedule your missed photography session infinitely. Just make sure you inform Keith at least 3 hours before course commencement.

Will It Be Overly Crowded Per Photography Session?

In Pictorial, we value quality training, so every session will be capped at 6 participant per session, now you can truly enjoy your photography session and interact more with your photography mentor.

After My Photography Course, Can I Still Speak To Pictorial For Photographic Related Advises?

Of Course You May! To Pictorial, you are friends to us rather than just customers so after the course assistance will still be given to you. Simply call up, WhatsApp, email or SMS Keith anytime.

Can I join the course if I don’t have a camera or tripod?

Of course, we can provide complimentary camera loans & tripod.

Testimonials

  • I was very pleased with my workshop, I am better able to understand how to effectively use my camera and what all the settings really mean. I also picked up great tips on how to take a better photo. I would definitely recommend pictorial workshops for anyone interested in improving their photography no matter their skill level.

  • Taking the Comprehensive 9 sessions course was probably the best decision I've made in starting my journey in undergoing professional training. Under your guidance, I have shot in Full Manual mode since the day I got my DSLR and everytime I shoot, I get reminded of the tips that you would always provide and remind us about. Through your course, I managed to build a strong foundation in my photography skills which further enabled me to explore other means of photography. Thank you for always believing in me and encouraging me to believe in myself and in my abilities.

  • Since going on the basic workshop, I have learn how to utilize my DSLR to a rather high capacity. The angles and skills taught to me in the workshop were unique and opened my eyes to actual photography. Previously, I thought tinkering With the digicam on different angles was something new but since learning how to use the DSLR , I have actually advanced way ahead of what I thought I was capable of. The guiding focus of one guide to two people is very good as it actually provides us quality time to ask questions and to learn more from the true professionals. Therefore, learning how to use, or rather, to abuse the DSLR in this workshop was what impressed me the most in this basic workshop and considering this is only basic, I wonder what else can go on in the advanced courses.

  • Hi Keith I am back home now and want to thank you for the memorable photography course. You have given me invaluable tips on how to create stronger photographs and I hope I will improve. Here is a link to one of my videos with my photographs that I took during the course. It's just a slideshow I created on iPhoto: (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eK8r36g8nlQ). You were right - I could have got some wonderful photos of star trails in Bintan Island as the moon was so bright. However, I wasn't even getting clear photos of the moon. It used to smudge in the photographs and I am not sure why! So I didn't get a single good picture of the moon or any star trails 🙁 The night photographs of Singapore turned out brilliant and I have only you to thank for it! 😀 Wish you a happy holiday season and do keep in touch!
