Photography Workshop at Neenasam [Heggodu]

Neenasam - Heggodu
Surprisingly who is having a patience to sit three days in the same place; listen the continuous lecture about different topics. But again, it depends on the subject, experts, interest of any individuals. And also matter the event organization. Indeed, I was the participant for unforgettable and most memorable Photography Workshop on 15 - 17th June 2018 at Neenasam, Heggodu.

My beloved friend, Vijayanand shared his experience and thoughts about his last year participation at this workshop. He was again wanted to join this year, due to exigency he could not. His feedback motivated me to join this workshop at any cost. Vijay has taken entire process to enroll my name along with other 7 friends. Thank you so much Vijay!!!!!!

I had been at Neenasam Heggodu, two months back during our bicycle tour. The place, location, surrounding environment is away from city. Very good place to relax and enjoy the nature. It is very close to Sharavathi Backwater.

Sharavathi Backwater
Every year this workshop is jointly conducted by Sagar Photographic Society (SPS) & Youth PhotographicSociety (YPS). It is three days practical oriented workshop.

Photography Practical Session - Sharavathi Backwater
Ever, I have participated this kind of workshop. I felt it was completely non-commercial; well managed; different subject experts, very simple soul, interactive with each one of the participant, and happy to help anyone who approach to these experts.

Yakshagana Artist
I had totally different approach in the mind about the photography. As we granted unlimited clicks of digital photos either in Camera or mobile. Randomly click some photos, little bit edits white balance and post on the social media. Keep counting the number of likes I get on it.

Practical Session
This workshop indeed changed my way of thinking about photography. Photo should not be a just click, it should tell some story. How many we click is not an important, but how many remain in the people mind is more important.

Artist
There was no choice to like the clicks by experts, all are excellent and outstanding. I never seen such photography skills in person, could be on internet. I understood, how much the dedication and patience is required to do the photography. I was stunned seeing a desired click took 11 long years to Sri Nagendra M. 

Artist
Got thrilled to know how he struggled to capture the flying squirrel shot for 3 years. How the experts spent years together become so perfect. I am so glad to meet many experts i.e., H Satish, Gautham Ramesh, Murali Santhanum, Krishna Bhat, Nagendra M, TS Gopal, G Venkatesh, KS Rajaram.

Three days practical session was involved shooting of Yakshagana, Bharathanatya, Tribal dance, village painting, outdoor photography at Sharavathi Backwater, architecture photography at Ikkeri temple etc.

Artist
Participants were around 70+ with mixture of profession, place, age; however, they all bonded by photography hobby. We all become a family members in three days. I was feeling like NSS camp where everyone enjoys it.
