Objective: Photography skills enrich both professional and personal life. Over the years, it has evolved to play a major role in the path of success of an individual in his profession. A photograph could be used as a teaching aid, in case presentations, publications, interactive treatment planning, and treatment documentation for medico-legal issues, laboratory communication, forensic odontology- crime scene investigations and also as a marketing tool. Though anyone can take photographs, what’s important is to learn to take a good quality photograph as quickly as possible, to save time. In view of the same we organized this Hands-On Workshop so that our students and faculty can grab the opportunity to learn General and Dental photography basics, Camera choosing and handling, Intricacies of exposure and depth of field, Table Top Photography, Advanced lighting techniques and Post processing essentials.
