old course content and information from word press

Founded by Advertising and Fashion photographer Munish Khanna, the concept of Munish Khanna academy is to provide complete and thorough training in photography and full support not just while the course is going on but for a lifetime. This is probably the only course which is based on the contents and not just the duration. Which means, making you a photographer is a commitment, whatever time it may take. It is not a training program, where you need to bother about, how many sessions you have attended and how many you have missed out. In the unlikely case that we are unable to make you understand a particular topic, we would continue with the same, till you are confident. So, you may cover up the course contents at a faster or slower pace as per your own capabilities. You may chose to cover up the training within a few weeks or space it out over a few months. It all depends on the number of hours you can devote everyday. .The number of students is also restricted in one group, enabling individual attention. In the success of our students lies our success. So, go ahead and unleash your passion for photography. Broadly speaking the training involves the following parameters during your lifetime membership. DIRECT TRAINING-Learn directly from Munish through his practical and interactive sessions at the academy, join any session at your convenience in accordance with the calendar. Keep moving ahead as you cover various stages. ONLINE KNOWLEDGE BANK-Whenever in doubt refer to the online book Light on Photography written by munish. the online book includes everything you need and nothing that you don't. simple to understand, the online book includes photographs, complete technical and aesthetical information, tutorial films, behind the scenes coverage etc. with this source around you don't need any other book to put light on photography!
