Photography course for beginners with girish menon

Learn the basics of photography via live two-way video communication.

I follow a practical approach to photography: you will click pictures under my guidance during every online session.

You will have fun assignments to do in-between sessions which can be done at home. We will review your process, and your pictures during the following session—and help you to improve on the results.

This curriculum is designed for DSLR, mirrorless, and bridge camera users—consists of four 1-hour-long sessions, is open to anyone above the age of 8 located anywhere in the world.
