Photography plays a vital role, not only in academics but also in clinical practice. It is one amongst the basic tools that enables a clinician to synthesize relevant information pertaining to the patient.

Technology despite its advances is yet to harness the artistic side of photography. Cameras cannot tell what to photograph, or how to compose a picture. This was where this course comes in. It went through all aspects of photography, from choosing a camera and lenses and mastering the intricacies of exposure and depth of field, to the importance of light, using flash and composing a picture.

This course imparted specific and relevant information required for the clinical conditions in a comprehensive yet concise manner and also explained the intricacies of photography in a summarized and digestible format. After attending this hands-on course, the participants realised that clinical photography can be done with less chair-side time, few equipments and minimal discomfort to the patient.
