Digging into art deeper is like learning any other discipline, therefore we need to learn the alphabet of photography. Undoubtedly without knowing this mandatory alphabet no picture can be done. So, this workshop tries to review basic information about photography and creativity through visual elements and camera functionality.

Participants in these workshops learn how to use cameras and how to see better to capture. They find about the quality of this medium, learn to observe an object and convey their observation onto the camera and their mind both. Learning to see and capture a decisive moment helps them to build up a better future not only as an artist but also as a person in social life.
