CHHAYAPATH, CALCUTTA members and eminent professionals in the field are utilized to teach the students. Basic course teaches the fundamentals like development of optical principles, lenses, their combinations, cameras, sensors and micro-processors, function of different parts & accessories, and their uses in digital imaging. The latest technology of the photography being very new and in the nascent stage, knowledge of efficient image processing at post-capture is not known to many, therefore, for the benefit of interested photo enthusiast we have also included theory& practical classes on photo-editing software s in the basic course .
It tries students to inculcate the ability to look through the viewfinder a bit differently to assess a situation artistically and visualize the end product. The course stresses upon the practical side of photography, its world in colour, its various branches and brings the students in the arena of vast technical possibilities as well as modern methods of image making where one’s imagination is the only limit. The students have to pass through various project work, theory exams and viva-voce..
