The main intention of this intensive workshop was helping participants on practical application. In addition to the workshop instructors, mentor GMB Akash was beside each participant to elaborately instruct them in the field. GMB Akash’s teacher team thoroughly helped out students to learn photography independently. In two locations of outdoor practical shooting, GMB Akash and his team supervised each participant passionately and according to their needs.
During the 1st day of the workshop every participant received feedback regarding their portfolio. At the 1st day of workshop instructors build up a solid understanding of photography and its basics. Class lecture that specially designated to introduce photography interestingly helps students to prepare for their next three days out door shooting with their instructor. Moreover four days participants do not think about anything else than photography!
The day begins on 7 a.m. First Light got a devoted group of participants who were divided into two groups and started shooting from early morning. Instructor GMB Akash attended each group separately and the group successfully continued shooting until afternoon. During the break they work on their selected images and headed towards their class room. The recap of the review session took place at the First Light Campus and our enthusiastic participants group showed their charm by delivering wonderful images in such short time. Their self esteem and self motivation was wondering as the class ended up at 8 P.M but they were ready to hit the ground of day three same as the day two!
Day three started with better pictures and with some more energy! The day started same as day 2, but when participants were with their instructor they continued to capture their best images. GMB Akash praised them for their transportation. The day was a repeat of day two but ended up by producing better images, by gathering more experiences and by knowing own strengths and weaknesses!
The day started same as day 3, but everyone gives their best effort as this was the last day to show their improvement to their mentor. After finishing shooting eventually participants went to their campus and a detailed review had been done there. After pointing about future projects and evaluating the course, participants were overwhelmed while they were receiving the certificate. Indeed the workshop ended with ‘Load of memories’!
