Understanding the Art of Photography
“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.”

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!

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
