He was keen to encourage them to photograph using whichever medium possible. Anshuman also shared his experience of becoming a photographer – from starting his journey by meeting the late Prabuddha Dasgupta.

He explained concepts such as 18% grey which is a part of every photo. Simply put, in case you photograph a totally black medium, your shots will come as washed out white, while if you photograph a totally white medium, your shots will come out black. This happens because your camera interprets shots with 18% grey in them.

Not being a big fan of new technology, Sen explained the students techniques such as using a grey card or a spot card to focus on shots. Sen further emphasized on ‘perspective rather than technique’ and told the students that they could use any device to photograph, but having the right perspective is most important.
