Certificate Weekend Course in Digital Still Photography
Photography is the most popular medium that captures life as goes by. Travelling, visiting a new place, important events and tender moments; every time such incidents come up one surely feels like capturing it for posterity. A pictured shared with someone dear to you living somewhere else or simply putting your favourite picture framed in your drawing room can give you a distinct identity. But the challenge of taking a good photograph is not just being there at that very moment; it’s also about aesthetically evocative composition and choosing technically sound exposure setting and shutter speed. One has to understand the magical interplay of light, shadow and colour to create magic in a frame.

Idris’s photography invites you to come along on his travels and explore new worlds as he sees them through his camera. The playful joie de vivre of children on the snow covered slopes of spiti, the calm amid the cacophony of the kumbh, the brooding stillness of majestic mountains: idris’s camera brings many stories to life. All of his pictures tell a story, but with each viewer entitled to their own vision.
Idris taught photography for several years before striking out on his own. A trip to Spiti convinced him to begin his career as a freelance photographer and he hasn’t looked back since. He has traveled widely, looking at the world through his viewfinder, and his photographs span a series of subjects and places. Feel humbled by the sheer vastness of spiti, see a riot of colors envelop the world as villagers play Holi in Braj, and see the faithful return from prayers at Jerusalem in Israel.
Idris stays in Delhi, and can be contacted at email@example.com. To know more about him yourself, you may log on to www.idrisphotography.com
