Master Your Lenses

September 28, 2019 @ 6:30 pm - 9:00 pm UTC+5.5

YPS Meet - Master Your Lenses - 28 Sept

YPS Meet | Sept 28, Sat | 6:30 PM | YPS Hall

Every photographer has a bag-full of lenses that stay with them even when the bodies change. Some of them are favourites and stay on the body most of the time while others are rarely used. And all of us also have a longer wishlist of lenses that we want in the bag. This session will focus on how to understand the strengths and weakness of your lenses and how to use them to make the type of pictures one wants. A better understanding of the lens will also help the Photographer to make technically superior pictures. Finally, the session will help you understand how to build your portfolio of lenses suitable for the pictures you make.

About the Speaker

Murali Santhanam
Murali SanthanamMurali Santhanam is a retired Information Technology professional. His photographic journey over the last decade and half has been shaped by friends from YPS and from group Vismaya, a small group doing “Photography for Cause”. His interest in photography started after reading Kodak Guide for Photography so much that the very first investment that he made after getting employed, was to buy a camera. He was drawn to photography by the science behind the photography and this interest has continued to help him develop his own  techniques for producing technically better pictures. Association with YPS and Vismaya shaped his understanding of elements of a picture and composition of elements. The one learning from Mr. Anand Sharan, Bangalore School of Arts and Photography, that underlies all his pictures is “Background makes a picture”. Murali learns by experimenting and shares his knowledge readily.

YPS had also given an opportunity over the last few years to serve the members. He applied his IT knowledge to create the YPS Portal and Salon submission and judging software. He was a co-creator of Creative Photo Artist for collective learning through honest discussions.

Here are some of the images by Murali Santhanam.
