Praveen P Mohandas as a mentor ‘distributed’ himself well and fairly. He spoke to each participant based on their level, made us do exercises with various settings, telling us when to shoot, from where etc. He took good care of everyone. Praveen is a very creative person overall. I have learnt more about ‘seeing’ or ‘imagining’ the photograph by learning from him.
Praveen as a mentor is fantastic. His depth of knowledge about the subject is admirable.
Loved his ideas n concepts.
It was fantastic experience for me for a first timer, both for safari n photography. There aren’t even any words to say what an incredible experience I had.
In All for Me A Satisfying Paisa Vasool Trip.
The major highlight of the trip was the Mentor Praveen who was really nice in helping us understand the finer aspects and was extremely patient to answer to our questions. He also made sure he kept reminding us/me about the mistakes I was making and I don’t think I will forget those tips in the future (good learning).
