Sometimes we all just need a little push and a little guidance to make our passion into something more. Read Tanishq’s story to know how he became a food photographer and a Zomato Connoisseur after he enhanced his photography skills with MyCaptain Photography Workshop.
My Introduction to MyCaptain
I have never really liked the idea of studying just inside the classroom while sticking to selected curriculum. There is so much that a person can learn and explore from things around them. This is why when a friend of mine told me about MyCaptain and how they offer workshops in various fields online, I was quick to check them out. I went ahead and signed up for Photography as well as Content Writing and Blogging workshop.
I was not sure what to expect from this 30 day workshop, but I was quite excited to see how this online workshop would take place.
The MyCaptain Workshop Experience
My entire experience of this 30 day workshop has truly been quite inspiring and all of this was possible cause of Captain Vijay. He was quite friendly and he helped us whenever we faced any issues. The entire workshop was crafted in a beautiful manner which not only helped me learn new skills but the quick feedbacks from the Captain also helped me identify the places where I needed improvement.
The concept of Bokeh was very new to me and I loved exploring it while enhancing my photography skills. Another thing which was amazing about the workshop was that even my fellow mentees shared their feedback on my work. This helped me understand their photography vision and also allowed me to look at things from a new angle.
During the workshop, I had applied for the college photography team but I didn’t get selected. When I spoke to Captain Vijay about this, he made me understand that this shouldn’t stop me from pursuing photography and I could still be a photographer. That was when I realised that I should let my work speak for itself and work on building my own identity.
Building my identity as a Photographer
I always carry my camera with me wherever I go, so I could click pictures on the go. My sister had actually started posting some of the pictures that I had clicked and gave me the credits for the same on her account. This is what drove me to start my own page nukkadpeybhukkad and I started posting on it. People appreciated my work and that motivated me to work more on my Instagram page.
Today I have over 16,000 followers on my Instagram page, I am a Zomato Connoisseur and also a professional food photographer having done multiple shoots for various clients. I don’t know what the future holds for me, but in the meanwhile I am going to click my way through it all.
