Year 2015 has been a wonderful year for me, especially as a photographer.
I am grateful to you, constant reader of My blog, for having taken the time to follow my meanderings. The blog saw a phenomenal rise in readership with over 10 million hits this year. I redesigned the blog as well as changed the server to manage this extra load.
Creative Focus – an initiative I started to help aspiring photographers gain a better and concise understanding of skills and technique behind the art of photography has blossomed into most sought after photography learning course in Mangalore. Under Creative Focus I have conducted over 40 hands on, one to one learning experience workshops on various topics like Understanding Light, Post processing using Adobe Lightroom & Photoshop, Macro photography, Panoramic & Slow Shutter speed capture of landscapes, Non studio as well as Studio portrait photography.
Our free, photo critique forum on Facebook, The Mangalore Photography Club Photo-critic Group held lots of very interesting discussions on various topics of the photography, with very active participation from over 3500 members to become a learning hub of photography.
There is now an android app for those of you who want to experience my blog. You can freely download it from Google Play store.
In 2016, I am planning to expand workshops to different locales in India. I have also developed small hands-on intimate workshop on over 30 specialized photography topics like product photography, food photography, astro-photography, light painting etc., under Creative Focus initiative.
It’s a New Year and with it comes a fresh opportunity to shape our world. As this year is ending, I wish all the negativity and difficulties also end with this year and 2016 bring success and desired results for you.
Wishing you a very happy and prosperous New Year 2016.
