Five Day Photography Marathon
“Photography — wildlife or any other kind — can be learned piecemeal, which so many self-taught photographers have done, and in no way is the work of those photographers inferior to the work of formally trained photographers, of which there are just as many and just as excellent.
However, over the years as I learned photography and later started teaching the craft to the beginners, I realized that it just takes a lot of time and a lot of fiddling with the camera settings to get a good hang of elementary things, which otherwise could be taught in a few hours or so. And there are short courses for the specifics of photography, but a comprehensive course to understand photography, I thought, could serve as a sturdy and dependable block to build one’s photography upon.
With that thought in mind, I bring to you a detailed course on photography, wherein you will be learning about the very basics of operating a DSLR to shooting images like a true professional.
I have designed the course keeping in mind the situations we face in the field, the complexities of a modern-day DSLR and the time constraints all of us face these days. I sincerely hope this helps you sharpen your skills a bit, and pick up a few new ones.”

As an absolute beginner it was a very informative and interactive session. Learned a lot about my camera gear, photography tips and post processing. One recommendation to complete beginners like me would be to have a basic knowledge about the camera, etc.(not mandatory) so that u can ask more questions and clarify the doubts. Ma'am was extremely kind and literally explained those complex looking modes in a very simplistic manner. Plus point is that even after the 3 day session she is always there to help. I would highly recommend this session to beginners especially into wildlife photography.
The workshop was awesome, and I wholeheartedly recommend it!
I have been shooting in non-auto mode and post processing with ViewNX for quite a few years now, but it’s still a trial and error. Joining Aarzoo’s workshop was a good time investment to understand when to use what settings and get started on Lightroom. She obviously has in depth knowledge of the gear and techniques, but it was her passion, experience, and an innate ability to connect with the audience with her story telling that made the workshop super engaging and informative.
Aarzoo also accommodated my 10 yr old nephew, patiently answering his questions and giving him exercises to develop a better understanding of the concepts. It was a good exposure to what expert photography results look like and entails.
Thanks Aarzoo! We are both looking forward to a lot more ‘informed’ clicks 🙂
It was a 3 days short term course but learned a lot. Thank you Aarzoo Khurana mam for conducting this and teaching us many things about Art of photography and basic post processing in Adobe Lightroom. Especially the golden hour Photography and golden light post processing.
Thankyou so much.
I wanted to tell you that your three
day session was one of the most
important decisions I have had made
in my photography journey after
investing in a DSLR like literally!
Although IT have been clicking since
last 2-3 years (and Manual) but
knowing the things and 'learning' the
same witha deeper and more varied
perspective I believe will definitely
help me ahead. It was a surelya very
good. The way you explained things
keeping it so simple still conveying
the essence of basics was so
impactful. The way you tirelessly
answered questions gives a insight
of your aim to empower us the
learners of the tricks of trade and
share your knowledge and expertise.
Kudos and so well done! It was an
amazing experience- the all three
Keep rocking and clicking the
It was a great experience for me to attend a class by photographer like you.
I understood the basics and some of the most important factors that gives life to the photographs. Also the way you narrate stories behind each photograph that was taken by you. It is really motivating actually.
The class also thought the importance of post processing. Thank you for the knowledge you have me during the 3 days webinar. Thank you so much. It will help others who has a dream to become photographer. I give a 10 on 10 for the session.
I highly recommend this workshop to everyone who wants to gets best out of their photography equipments must take Aarzoo Khurana’s classes. I have taken two photography classes with Aarzoo Khurana. One on the field at Bharatpur location which was a hands on experience. The other one was an online class which was about backlight photography. I have learned many things that was promised and beyond in both classes. Aarzoo Khurana is excellent in the way of teaching and making sure that you understand each concept. Her techniques are down to earth and easy to understand. After taking classes with Aarzoo Khurana my photography has improved very much. Aarzoo Khurana has taught me many things in the photography workshops that I thought wouldn’t be possible with my camera gears. I thought that I would need higher end camera for the picture I wanted to take but with her teaching it was possible with what I already had. So anyone who needs help to improve their photography skills please take Aarzoo Khurana’s workshop! You will not regret taking it!
It was a great webinar today. I have learned many things today which we leave sometimes as a beginner
And u had made well sured that we were listening and understanding,just liked your down to earth personality and really helped us in improving our editing techniques so Thanks a lot for your great help and will join your every webinar to learn new things
I attended the three day online photography workshop wherein Aarzoo explained about different camera gears and their features, photography basics and post processing. She explained everything in a very simple language and with good examples which made the learnings easy and interesting. She was very patient in answering queries and has vast knowledge in this field. I have attended workshops previously as well, but here I learned new things which I didn't know before and also many areas are now more clear. Thank you for these wonderful sessions Aarzoo
I feel really great that I have enrolled myself for the Three Day Photography Marathon session by you. It's only after your session I got to know as a beginner where exactly I need to focus and be careful while taking the pictures.
I have learned lots of things like Exposure Triangle,Shooting Modes,Metering Modes, White Balance etc but more importantly the way you explained picture framing and story telling with picture sessions really amazed me and it's really encouraged me to take my hobby of wildlife photography to the next level. Apart from the skill set you have for the photography, I would really like to appreciate your patience and passion for work as during the session
I have raised many questions unrelated to the Topic of the day,like related to lense, portrait/street/Landscape photography but every time you helped me in solving those question without even bothering about the time of the session.
I am really looking forward to your upcoming sessions.
Hope you are doing good in this pandemic situation. I was enrolled in your One Month course of Fundamentals of Photography to Post processing learnings. Honestly a lot of doubts got cleared and a alot of concepts were understood elaborately. Your class was an overall great experience to learn about Wildlife Photography. It was interesting at the same time. Your every bit of work was an inspiration to enroll and learn from you and it will always be. I will always look forward to learn from you. And someday probably enroll to your field experience in the wild. I am sure that will ve an amazing journey too. Also I would like to thank you for motivating and giving a push to my passion towards wildlife journey. I hope to make you proud someday.
The session was amazing. After i completed the Three Day Marathon course, there was a huge improvement in my photography skills. The course has helped me grow even on my social media cause the quality of photos was upgraded. Thank you very much Aarzoo Mam for upgrading our game in Photography.
Sometimes when you are looking forward for something and it just appears right in front of you. I was looking forward to learn basics and composition rules. I came across this workshop. Since the mode was online it was convenient for a working professional like me. It was an absolutely productive weekend. My understanding about frames and composition has evolved to much extent. The best part of these sessions is that Aarzoo encourages questions and gave fairly sufficient time to answer. Will be looking forward to join her 'On field' workshop in near future.
The sessions were really very much helpful which along with study, it also included knowledge regarding the problem being faced during field work.. Thank you so much..
First of all I would like to thank Aarzo ma'am for conducting the session. It was really really very helpful and I would recommend this to everyone who has the passion for photography. Although the theories of photography are pretty boring but the way ma'am explained each and everything made it super interesting. Also she was really very patient in answering each and every queries and never hesitated to explain a topic twice or thrice. Thank you ma'am for conducting the sessions. Looking forward to join your upcoming sessions.
