Indian Institute of Art and Design (IIAD) organized a two-day photography workshop at its Okhla campus for Communication Design Students. The aim of the workshop, facilitated by Canon Photo Mentor and a Lifestyle and Commercial Photographer Ravi Dhingra, was to provide the students with a chance to learn about the basics of photography from light sources to various lighting types and techniques.
The workshop provided the students with a platform to talk about the various aspects to keep in mind while taking a photograph and how to use reflectors and light modifiers in order to create the appropriate atmosphere and environment to visually express themselves.
While addressing the students Dhingra said, “Picture capturing is an art in which you need to gauge the details such as light, frame, exposure etc. to create an art piece. Shadow plays an important role in adding volume and dimension to any frame.” He further stressed on the importance of the absence of colours in a time of so much sensory overload, as a way of disrupting the monotony and asserting one’s individuality.
The students, through the workshop, not only got to see and comprehend how these different lights work in relation to objects but they also had the opportunity to gain practical, hands-on experience as they experimented with DSLR cameras, took pictures and, in the process, better understood the nuances and technicalities of the art of photography.
