Have been using a canon camera for quite some time and taking pics only on Auto mode! Always wondered how come people... get such crisp and great pics! Now, ever since I have done a basic workshop at Sheil Photography and a proud owner of a SLR, got to know what wonders we can do with our camera! Learnt to get crisp n beautiful pictures. Shridhar Sir is an institution himself!!! He is an ocean of knowledge. He is never tired of answering questions!! We have bugged him to the core with all types of questions and he has always heard us with all his patience. And he rightly says... his 24x7 helpline is always open!! Thank u sir!!read more

My husband gifted me a SLR for my birthday.. and I had no idea what the numbers on the screen meant. I just switched to... Auto mode and started clicking. After a 2 days basics class with Sheil's Photography, I am atleast aware of what settings my camera has and how to use them. I now know how to capture moving objects or how to capture frames for the best effects. The 2 days session with Shridhar sir were the best! His way of teaching and explaining the techniques is what etched them into my mind. The only thing that remains is the eye to capture beauty and share a story.. hope I learn that soon! Thank you Sheils for introducing me to this beautiful world of photography! I'm totally hooked now 🙂read more

I attented the two day workshop for Basic Photography. This programme made me understand the basic concepts in deep... right from using different modes to composition. It has made me go out and explore other than Auto Mode. Also, it has cleared the misconception of having very high end camera only can take better photos. Looking forward to further Photowalks. Thanksread more

I have owned a DSLR since almost 3yrs now and only after attending the Sheils basic photography workhop, I can say that... I know my equipment well. All those buttons and knobs make much more relevant sense now. Very well stated before the start of the workshop that for sure the perspective of those who are attending will change and I agree with it now after attending the course, indeed my perspective has changed. I look forward to spending many more wkends out in the lap of nature and improving my skills. This place is indeed the most apt for beginners who wish to explore the art and science of photography. Trust me just owning a fancy camera doesnt make one a photographer. I hope I never get back to the Auto Mode. A big Thank you to Sheils photography and Shridhar Sir! Happy Clicking!read more

Like many, I had silent desire to explore field of photography.. First workshop on basics with Sheil's Photo set the... ball rolling for me.. Simple ways of explanation augmented with significant hands-on quickly helped me to experiment with manual mode out in the field.. Sheil's Photo also arranges variety of workshops on post processing, bird, wild, studio, product photography etc. of which I have attended a few.. It helped me connect with lot of photography enthusiasts as well as each interaction with Shridhar sir is a new learning experience.. I'll highly recommend all my amateur photographer friends, of all age groups, to check out the work and workshops of Sheils Photography..read more

Learning photography at Sheil's is a great thing. It is never a short term workshop. It initiates an evolution which... just continues happening. If you have a photographer in you, you get better. If you have not ventured earlier, you just might end up doing it stupendous! One learns theory, technology. One keeps learning the equipment. But most of all, one develops the honest ethical EYE, irrespective of the glasses and sensors and likes and favourites! Many good wishes to Sheil's for getting bigger!read more

I dont think there is a better Forum to learn Photography than at Sheil's. I started as a newbie and learnt quite a... lot.The best part is you do not have know anything about Photography when you start a course with Sheil's photography. Its been great interacting with Mr.Sridhar Deshpande , and he makes sure that each Person in the batch is on the same page before he moves ahed on to the next topic. I have attended various other photography Workshops , but in this one I was taught !! Its a great learning , and complete value for Money !! Must attend for everyone who wishes to learn Photography.read more

Tabletop Photography Workshop

Table Top Photography is a special type of photography that deals with setups with artificial lighting for shooting still life subjects.
Table Top is a very broad genre that includes many variants like Product Ad shootsOnline Product Catalogue shootsFood Photography, to name a few.
Each of these sub types have something unique to them, though on a broader level, they all fall under the same category of  Table Top Photography.It is also thought that for such shoots, one needs high end studio lighting equipment. It is true. However, such equipment is necessary for very high quality shoots. For most practical purposes, one can close in to nearly 90% quality with normal equipment.
There are two variants of this workshop – table top standard and Food photography.
To know more about these, click here.

Bird Photography Workshop

Bird photography workshop – These are special workshops teaching techniques and skills for bird photography. Bird photography is perhaps one of the most tricky types of photography. It not only requires good camera control, but also a fair understanding of the bird behavioral patterns.
Most of the time conducted at Bhigwan, one of the largest water bodies in Maharashtra, these workshops start early in the morning and last till late evening.
Bhigwan is a special place for any bird lover. It hosts a large number of migratory birds as well as residential ones.
You can find more detailed information about Bhigwan and commonly observed bird species in the article “Bhigwan – Paradise for Bird Photographers”
Not only do the Bird Photography Workshops teach the skills in Bird photography but they also work as great group events!

Wildlife Photography Camps

The camps are conducted in the Forest of Bandhavgadh, Tadoba, Kanha, Panch and Nagzira. Camps for Lion photography are conducted in Sasan Gir, Gujarat. All these jungles show rich faunal variations, including tigers, leopards, deer, wild boar and lions in Gir.
