May 12, 2019 @ 9:00 am - 6:00 pm UTC+5.5

YPS Workshop | May 12 | Toehold

Processing cannot make a bad picture good. But it can make a good picture great. Hence the Digital Post Processing Workshop. So you may go ahead and reveal the beauty hidden in your pixels. And make your images fly after this post process workshop.

About the workshop

What does this Workshop offer?
You may want to make your images look the way you saw the scene at the time of capture. Or enhance them to match your mind’s grand vision. Either way, the Workshop will help you traverse the last mile in your journey towards imaging excellence.

After this workshop you can:

  • Organise your images effectively.
  • Correct exposure and set white balance accurately.
  • Enhance colours and sharpness.
  • Remove noise and other blemishes.

About Mr. Jayanth Sharma, ARPS, UK

The mentor for the workshop will be Mr. Jayanth Sharma, Co-founder & CEO of Toehold. Award-winning Wildlife Photographer.

Jayanth Sharma

“Photography is at its most powerful when style flair and content originality come together,” says Jayanth.

Jayanth took up serious photography in 2004, and after gradually moving out of his day job to pursue his passion full time, co-founded Toehold in 2010 and especially since then, has been a prolific producer of consistently stunning imagery — the kind that is planned in a studio and executed outdoors. Effortlessly combining natural history and fine-art elements, Jayanth brings back rarely seen perspectives from the little-visited domains and far corners of the natural world.

Behind Jayanth’s awe-inspiring work are a fierce commitment to nail the composition in the field, an assiduous abstinence from digital manipulation, a nearly devotional love for quality, and zero appetite for compromise. Jayanth uses the strengths of his tools to his immense advantage, creating powerful vignettes of optical excellence designed to pamper the aesthetic corner of a nature lover.

Travelling is oxygen for Jayanth, and he wants to explore all possible natural hotspots of the world while he’s on the planet. His unique expertise in photographing in a truly eclectic range of wilderness areas – from Southeast Asia to Canada, Brazil to Norway and East Africa to eastern Russia, is supplemented by his immense experience in the Indian Subcontinent. Having worked in the mighty Himalayas, the unexplored Northeast, the secretive South and the tiger havens of Central India, Jayanth is a homegrown photographer gone totally global.

Participants of his Photo Tours find in him not only an acutely brilliant mentor but also a sparkling inspiration to conceive and execute images they had hitherto probably never imagined. Add to this the distinct brand of humour with which he spreads cheer during his events, and you know why people seek his company as much as the fountain of photography expertise he carries so lightly on his illustrious shoulders.

Awards Mr. Jayanth has won:

Finalist – Saevus Nature’s Trailblazer Assignment
Honourable Mention – Global Arctic Awards 2014
Highly Honoured – Nature’s Best Photography Windland Awards 2016
Special Mention – Better Photography Contest 2008
Special Mention – Sanctuary Asia Wildlife Awards 2008
Second Prize – DJ Memorial Photography Contest 2018
Third Prize – Sanctuary Asia Wildlife Awards 2007
