Tablers of ESRT 211 had a Interesting LAPD on Photography to develop the Interest and Skills of Tablers on photography
Tr Nanda Kumar shares the details
It was a great pleasure and bonding in conducting the PHOTOGRAPHY WORKSHOP on Jan 26th. It all started at 10:00 am with 13 Vibrant participants in park plaza coimbatore. First 30 mins session was an eye opener into the world of Birding, conducted by Mr.Shiva a leading Birder. Then started the real fun. Mr.Shammy took us to the world of photography with the Zones systems, importance of Lights etc.
I took over from shammy and shared my knowledge on the basics Aperture, Shutter speeds, Compositions, and other important things. Proceeded to Lunch with fellowship. Then continued with the Major photography techniques. It was super duper experience with highly active participants
Then Tr.Sara (CRT 9) took over from me and shared his depth knowledge on Wildlife and Bird photography, the importance of focusing, metering, stability, the great F8 Technique etc. The last evoking session was carried out by Tr.Ravi (our past area trek convenor and present GO GREEN convenor) regarding the importance of the Ecological Balance in the planet, our role and duties, How we are loosing our planet and what can be done.
Then came the fun. Shammy took over for a practical hand on experience and we all tried many photographic techniques with studio lights. Could not bear the over whelming enthu of few tablers, who took me to the road outside Park Plaza to try out few photographic techniques (thanks to Tr.Anand).
Next Morning we started by 6:00 am with our sandwiches packed (Thanks to Tr.Vivek). We proceeded to a place near AnaiKatty (Thanks to Tr.Sara) WOW, what a lovely place. We never know we have such a place nearby. We all enjoyed with variety of some rare and elusive birds and few colourful birds around. We all tried out the different photographic techniques that we learnt the previous day. Called of the day with a great Biryani Lunch.
All in all, a wonderful 2 days of fun with my fellow tablers around.
