Gagan Brar (Gurgaon): ENLIGHTEN Fashion Photography Workshop Aug 2019
Bursting myths regarding light
The concepts which seemed complex and tough such as lighting set ups , controlling light, types of lights etc were explained in simplified and practical manner. This is crash course on almost all aspects of fashion photography- hands on experience on how to modify light, seeing live results working with professional model and MUA, guidance on features of lighting hardware and importance of styling and backdrops in fashion photography. Mentors answered every question howsoever basic or complex. I would highly recommend this workshop for first hand understanding of studio lighting.
Rachit Agarwal (Agra): ENLIGHTEN Fashion Photography Workshop Aug 2019 (5 Star)
It was an Amazing workshop. We got lot of knowledge in this workshop and the practical shoot was awesome. It was the best fashion photography workshop I have experienced till now. Thanks Rajneesh and Jassi Sir.
Mayank Makhija (Agra): ENLIGHTEN Fashion Photography Workshop Aug 2019
Understanding proper use of light was never so easy. It was my best workshop so far.
Mentor are really awesome and explain things very clearly.. They teach so properly and make things easy for all of us. Will certainly attend their other workshops.
Pushpendra Saini (Roorki): ENLIGHTEN Fashion Photography Workshop Aug 2019
Thank you so much for this workshop. I learnt about the technicalities about strobes and how we can use the strobes to put light on a model to get a desirable result. They kept it very simple to understand. Thank you Rajneesh sir and Jassi sir.
Sharmistha Dutta (Noida): ENLIGHTEN Fashion Photography Workshop Aug 2019
Studio lighting and fashion photography workshop
It was absolutely wonderful to attend this workshop mentored by Rajneesh and Jassi Oberoi. Learnt a lot about the basics of studio lighting, controlling and usage of light to shoot wonderful portraits in fashion. Thanks to both the mentors for a very enlightening workshop.
Vivek Singh (Prayagraj): ENLIGHTEN Fashion Photography Workshop
I wanted to attend the ENLIGHTEN Workshop last Saturday but since that got postponed I decided to opt for one on one session with Xploring Light and Rajneesh Panwar. What a fabulous fabulous experience that was. Whatever tricks of the trade he taught me were out of the box. I give heartfelt thanks to him for explaining all the tricks possible and all the secrets of lighting, which will certainly help me improve my photography skills using studio lights. Thanks you Xploring Light and Rajneesh.
Paulina Schapova (Mumbai) -ENLIGHTEN Beauty Photography and Post Processing Workshop (April 2019)
Huge thanks to Rajneesh for being able to explain complex things in a very simple to understand way, correcting and setting up the right foundations, on which we should build our professional knowledge. I learnt that I was doing many basic things incorrectly, which has hugely improved the ease and efficiency of my post production workflow. Having a passionate and patient teacher makes learning things that you might find difficult or daunting initially much easier. Thank you!
Sahib Singh (Faridabad) – Enlighten Workshop on Fashion Photography with Godox
I really appreciate mentors of the workshop they are very nice, full of knowledge. The way they conducted the workshop was more than amazing. I don’t have words to praise them, I enjoyed the workshop moreover I gathered so much of knowledge regarding lights which I was not aware of. Thanks to all of you who put lots of efforts for conducting this amazing workshop.
Jay (Jaipur) – Enlighten Workshop on Fashion Photography with Godox
I love the way Raj sir and Jassi sir teaches photography in a simple and it helped me a lot.
I haven’t learn photography from someone and it was my first workshop so thank you so much Raj sir and Jassi sir for making it worth coming from Jaipur to Gurgaon just for the workshop
Surbhi Sharma (New Delhi) – Enlighten Workshop on Fashion Photography with Godox
Great experience in the Enlighten Beauty Photography Workshop. This boost up my studio lighting knowledge plus how to take creative shots in beauty photography. I practiced all these things together & it took my photography to another level.
Thank You Rajneesh Sir for the guidance
Puneet Kaur (New Delhi) – Long exposure Landscape Photography Workshop (May 2018)
At the cost of sounding cliche, I’d say the workshop on landscape photography was very enriching. There was so much that I wasn’t aware of, moreover the workshop made me get over my reluctance to experiment with landscape. Simple, yet lively is the vibe in the way Sir conducts every class. It is always fulfilling and inspires me to keep going..
Tarun Sachdeva (New Delhi) – Long exposure Landscape Photography Workshop (May 2018)
This was my first workshop with Jassi. He is a real master at his game, he has thorough knowledge of his subject and goes out of way to answer all the questions patiently. Not only the minor details he also covers all the aspects of photography in his workshop. Highly recommended for beginners as well as advanced level photographers.
Bhaskar Choudhury (New Delhi) – Long exposure Landscape Photography Workshop (May 2018)
Was part of the excellent workshop on long exposure workshop – provided details which comes only with years of experience, from basics to equipment. Very knowledgeable, in-depth and helpful.
Ashok Agnihotri (New Delhi) – Long exposure Landscape Photography Workshop (May 2018)
I found the workshop very helpful and enriching. Came to know about different aspects of ND filters and photography. One thing I like most that Jassi sir guides/teaches on the basis of his experience. He shares all the pros and cons of brands he used and I like it most. I would like to extend my heartfelt gratitude.
Sourabh Dhawan (New Delhi) – Long exposure Landscape Photography Workshop (May 2018)
Not only the session on long exposure photography using ND filters by Mr. Jassi Oberai was highly informative, it had enough details about the use, precautions, tips and inherent gaps one has to face while using ND filters.
Mentor was patient enough to extend the workshop out of the classroom and demonstrated practically the challenges of capturing a landscape where exposure was varying and mitigating the challenges by using combinations of CPL, ND and GND filters.
Hope I would be able to polish my hobby further with Xploring Light.
Sanjay Singh(New Delhi) – Portrait Photography Masterclass April 2016
It was indeed an honour for me and a great learning experience to know the nuances of portrait photography during your masterclass!Looking forward to continued engagement with LCA and clicking some good portraits myself during this journey!I would also be very eager to join the photo journeys organised by you so that I get further opportunities to learn.
Rahul Chaudhary (New Delhi) – Portrait Photography Masterclass April 2016
I went for the Portrait Photography Master class conducted by Mr. Jassi Oberai with the hopes of learning something new about portraits and at the end of the workshop i was amazed to see that not only i learned about portraits but a lot of other aspects too. I got to know about the mistakes i’ve been making and i was lucky to share my pics with sir. I am glad i went for the workshop and got the opportunity to meet such a good Photographer, Mentor and a helpful person!
Mathew Joseph (New Delhi) – Portrait Photography Masterclass Feb 2016
Attended the Portrait Photography Masterclass earlier this month, and I must say I am extremely impressed with pedagogy that went beyond just technical aspects. I am a novice when it comes to portraiture, but the session has instilled in me the confidence to go ahead and create portraits. The lively discussions, personal examples quoted, and the exhibits were truly intended to kickstart an interest in the genre, which it successfully did. Thanks Jassi for this wonderful initiation into this soulful art form.
Puneet Kaur (New Delhi) – Portrait Photography Masterclass April 2016
For an amateur who’s been practicing photography, portrait was one genre which I found intriguing as I’d never clicked people. It was always overwhelming looking at portraits clicked by photographers including Jassi Sirs’. How a face or people’s expression convey emotions and a connection made, I wondered. Having attended quite a few workshops conducted by sir earlier, I went ahead with the belief that this too would be another enriching experience. The workshop was very interesting and interactive. Sir is always open to discussions and wouldn’t hesitate to clarify endless doubts. I believe that for him satisfying the learning of every student is as important as it is for us or perhaps more. And it doesn’t end there. He’s happy to see when his students are progressing and continues to mentor us through a common group created for the students of Xploring Light Academy. All students from various walks of life get a platform to share their work and get valuable feedback. I’m fortunate that like many others I was mentored by him. I’am sure many others who’ll pursue a course or workshop here, will be equally happy and satisfied. Wishing sir and the entire team at Xploring Light & Future Forward, much success always.
Navin Thakur (New Delhi) – Portrait Photography Masterclass April 2016
I thank my colleague Subrata Behera for introducing me to your mastery. The workshop on Portrait Photography in Delhi was an eye opener for me and a realisation of how little did I know about the Photography. Thanks for being patient with my constant nagging and explaining everything till I was satisfied. That masterclass has given me the confidence of taking next steps in the direction of becoming a true image maker. I couldn’t recommend your workshops more to anyone. Thanks a lot for sharing your expertise, insights and experience with us. I feel truly blessed after attending your Masterclass.
Subrata K Behera (Gurgaon) – Portrait Photography Masterclass April 2016
Benefited a lot from the “Portrait Photography Masterclass” and I am more confident now to take the challenge of portrait photography, especially the travel and environmental portraits. The aesthetic part of portrait photography was little known to me. The legal aspect the portrait photography was new to me. Thanks Jassi and team for this. Hope to join some future workshops as well.
Vimal Kumar (New Delhi) – Portrait Photography Masterclass (Delhi March 2016)
Thanks a lot for arranging such a wonderful and inspiring class for photo enthusiast like me. It was indeed a pleasure and eye-opening workshop for me regarding Portrait. Your class changed my perception regarding most of the key elements in Portrait Photography and I wish to practice them again and again in future.Earlier I used to take shots of people without creating a story, indulging in creating bokeh instead of expression or emotions in my photographs. The workshop was overall interactive and I learned a lot from you and many others. It always feels good when same interest people meet and discuss their passion on a healthy platform.In future, I would further love to connect with you and many others to learn and explore many possibilities in this field.
Anurag Gupta (New Delhi) – Portrait Photography Masterclass (Delhi March 2016)
Awesome insights explained in a very succinct and easy manner. You come out of the workshop definitely richer ! Eye-opener workshop. Got clarity on many points. Thank you… 🙂
Madhuri Roy (New Delhi) – Portrait Photography Masterclass (Delhi March 2016)
Eye-opener workshop. Got clarity on many points. A must-do workshop for Photography-Lovers. Now I am a regular student of Xploring Light Gurus.Thank you for being there and guiding us.
Yogesh Gupta (Faridabad) – Post Processing Beyond Basics Workshop (New Delhi Feb 2016)
First of all I’m thankful to get Rajneesh as a mentor.It was great pleasure again to be a part of Xploring Light Academy course. You both are the master of photography art either behind the camera or in front of the monitor 🙂First it looked very complicated to understand the beyond basic post processing, but the way Rajneesh took all the subjects and procedure was fantastic. People take months to understand these technicalities about post processing, but the way Rajneesh summed it up in 2 days is really commendable.I whole heartedly recommend your academy to anyone who has a bit of interest in photography and serious about photography too.It was again a very good learning experience with your academy.
Looking forward for another association with you in future.
Ashish Sinha (New Delhi) – Portrait Photography Masterclass (New Delhi Dec. 2015)
As I started my first class with you and following you before that class. I really want to thank you for superb teaching and sharing skill. Learning never end and if you our mentor I always happy to learn from you. I try to come in your class but as my busy schedule I just saw your FB post and try to learn from there. Keep it up and as I’m instructor so I learn lots of skill from you. Thanks for nice workshop.
Rajoo Naik (After Go Goa – workshop on fashion photography)
Best Part about this workshop was “people”. From models to facilitator to participants to organisers and mentors – all were genuine people. Kudos to Xploring Light for making this workshop such a fun-filled chilled out learning experience.
Jasvinder Singh (after our Basics of Photography Workshop)
It’s our pleasure to get assosiated with you for some photgraphy lessons. Ever since I have attended work shop conducted by Xploring Light at Canon Image Lounge for learning the basics for photography , the entire idea about using the camera, lenses and infact looking at subjects has totally changed. Your guiding skiil are too good for any body to understand techniqes and impliment them, your humble nature and professional attitude not only makes the classroom atmosphere friendly but your sharp interacting skills holds the attentions of every student in the entire session or workshop. We feel fortunate to have attended your workshop and also feel that for any photography enthusiast you could be the best mentor.
Bhartendu Mihir on the Hasselblad Workshop with Eolo Perfido
It was a very informative, interesting and well organised workshop. It certainly helped to get better insight into different photography techniques and understand the working of a professional photographer.Looking for more from Xploring Light and Hasselblad.
Vishal Gulati on the Hasselblad Workshop with Eolo Perfido
To see the maestro “Eolo” and to listen directly up close was very specoal and I got extremely impressed with his vast knowledge about the subject in all aspects – his photography as well as the post production skills. Jassi is the best mentor and always inspiring. Thank you so much for being so humble and an inspirational figure. Would love to attend more workshops organised by Xploring Light and Hasselblad!
Dr. Shikhar Kaushal on the Hasselblad Workshop with Eolo Perfido
Handling a Hasselblad was a dream come true. Thanks for providing us the great opportunity. The use of LED lights was something even more interesting. And last but not the least Eolo, had not only great knowledge of & love for photography, he thoroughly enjoyed teaching and answering our questions. Freely sharing one’s hard earned knowledge shows one’s large heartedness and stature as a person. Thanks Xploring Light for another great learning experience.
Kapil R. Singh on After the Shot Workshop
I have been in various workshops and photo tours with Jassi and each interaction has been quite knowledge enhancing. Jassi is an ace photographer with in-depth knowledge of the various aspects of photography which is underpinned by his terrific training skills. The workshop conducted on post processing was of immense help – it had something in store for all the participants, be it people who are new to photography to professional photographers too. The content was highly relevant and interactive and kept the participants engaged for all 2 days. The session was not about theoretical fundamentals, but included hands on application for the techniques. I am sure that the session would have helped all the participants in enhancing their skills manifold. 5 Stars to Jassi and Xploring Light for a terrific workshop.
Neelu Bhatt, Bangalore
More than I expected. Helps to be taken to the right spot, at the right time, with the right light. Impressed by the generosity and openness of the mentors in sharing “the secrets” – no holding back. Sincere, genuine effort to see the participants take back more.

Abhishek Dhakate After the Shot – Nagpur
I wish they had some more stars to rate it…. Jokes apart, it was only a few months back one of my Photographer friend suggested me to attend a post processing workshop. Being an amateur I barely had any idea about photography and this friend of mine suggesting me to attend a workshop on post processing seemed like a joke to me. However I decided to go for it. I had been following Jasminder Oberoi (this is the first n last time I am writing the full name cause I fondly call him Jasssiiii Sir and yes he doesn’t mind) on Facebook. I had also been following his Page JAS Fotography on Fb too.. I was in love with his work. I was so excited to meet him that I went along to receive him on the Airport and there walked out a Sardarji with a Pagdi and just a handbag. Greeted us and we had a great convo during our travel. I was like is he really a photographer and really is this person going to take our Workshop. To be frank I have come across Photographers who click less and show more.. Workshop started and it was fun…. 2 days just passed by. That day was a day and today. My photography skills have not only improved but it has reached to a new level. People have started noticing my work and appreciating it too. I do Portfolios, landscapes and potraits. Even now Jassi sir is always there to guide. and the best part is he tells straight away if the Picture is good or bad. If it is good he will appreciate it and if it needs improvement he will help me out let that be any time of the day…. Blessed to have you as my mentor Jassi sir. A humble and down to earth person is what Jassi sir is. And for others sorry for writing it so long but like they say “Words cant describe Legends…” but still it was my humble effort to express my feelings for Jasminder Oberoi and his firm Xploring Light
Uday Patni The Art & Physics of Photography – Nagpur
Amazing experience – Got acquainted to some really cool principles of photography after attending a single Workshop. My personal fav was taking ‘hyper focal distance’ chapter – it was amazing.
Jasleen Singh Virdi India Kliks
First of all, Special Thanks to Mr. Jasminder Oberai (Spearhead of “Xploring Light” and The man behind the great venture of sharing knowledge to all youngsters) for their pro-activeness and provided the valuable information about programs time to time whether its day early or late night a day. That was the 1st time, I got the opportunity to attend the Photography Symposium / Exhibition by IndiaKliks and met with very famous personalities ( Sudhir Shivaram, Jasminder Oberai, Anamitra Chakladar, Ashima Narain, Enjo Mathew, Neeta Shankar, Ravi Dhingra + Sanjay Nanda…) those are into the field of photography from decades. Learnt a lot in just three days of sessions . Additionally XploringLight + Canon + IndiaKliks + Expert Mentors + Participants: Discussions / Thoughts / Queries, helped me a lot. Wishing good luck to every buddy those are a part of those ventures. Special Thanks to IndiaKliks Core Team: Mr. Kirat Sodhi, Jasminder Oberai, Pankaj Anand, Saurabh Tuteja and all sponsors.
I have attended a lot of phototours and workshops with Jassi and team and those were some of the most fun days I have ever had. One absorbs a lot of knowledge and new techniques naturally without it ever feeling tedious. There are ample opportunities to observe, practice and just have fun overall and you come back and be surprised at the improvement in quality of pictures you yourself took over the tour.
I’ve attended 4 workshops conducted by Jasminder Oberoi on behalf of Xploring Light. I dont really have words to describe the extent of knowledge I gathered. Jasminder sir has always been my inspiration since from the time I started Photography. He is such a down to earth person and is always approachable for any kind of doubts. The teaching manner, the vigor with which the workshops are conducted is immense. I asked sir if he could conduct his workshops in Nagpur as his workshops in Delhi and Mumbai are not feasible for most of the people here, and after 2 workshops everyone has learnt so much that they want sir to conduct more of such amazing workshops. I would like to wish Xploring Light all the luck and hope it reaches to levels no other Photography firm has reached.

Praneet Vayalali – Workshop at IIT, Kanpur
Its was a nice learning experience. Learnt a lot of new stuff. Thank you for coming.
Ambar Pakhira – Workshop at IIT, Kanpur
I really enjoyed the your workshop yesterday at IIT Kanpur. Thanks for sharing your experience and tips. Hope I can follow those tips and become a better photographer.
Puneet Kaur (New Delhi) – India Kliks 2013
I came across this workshop & I am really happy to have grabbed the opportunity. As an amateur, I learnt a lot from each of the mentors. It was thrilling & left me awestruck hearing about the various aspects of photography & how life is seen through the lens. It was humbling meeting the mentors, who put us at much ease. I returned home each day more & more exuberant. I hope I get more such opportunities to learn. Wish my sincere wishes to the entire team of Xploring Light. Thank you.
Madhavi Jarmarwala (Ahmedabad) – Workshop on Travel Photography at PDPU, Ahmedabad
Attended the workshop at PDPU, Ahmedabad. and was really happy learning so many new things about Travel Photography. Thank you for making the session so interesting. Hoping to learn a lot from you and attend your future workshops.
Avinash Khemka (Bhubaneshwar) – Digital Post Processing Workshop Nov. 2014
The Digital Post Processing Workshop on 29-30 Nov 2014 in Bhubaneswar was an eye-opener and a great learning experience for me. It has given me in-depth knowledge of photography, image-formation, Adobe Bridge, Adobe Camera Raw and Adobe Photoshop. It has immensely helped me in adding value to my photographs. Thanks Jasminder Oberai.
Utpal Deb (New Delhi)– After the Shot Workshop March 2015
I attended your workshop on photo editing using ACR and Photoshop on the 15 th Feb. Now that I am going through my notes and trying to apply what you taught to my own images, I realise what a lot of material you have managed to transfer in the time available to us. Yet we did not feel tired or bored during the presentation. I would like to offer you my congratulations on a great workshop and look forward to future association with you.
Rajeev Dass (New Delhi)– After the Shot Workshop March 2015
I attended a Photoshop CC workshop conducted by Jassi on 22 March 2015 at New Delhi. Without any doubt – Jassi gives it all. His sincerity and passion are amazing. He does not hesitate to share his knowledge and is spontaneous and reaches out in an genuine attempt to impart the right training. Very few in this profession who can match Jassi in his open hearted approach and his sincerity in making sure you learn. To perfect his workshop I however do strongly wish that Jassi would provide some course material which we could take back. Keep firing Jassi – my best wishes always !!!!
Shyamak Das (New Delhi) – After the Shot Workshop March 2015
First of all my thanks to you Jassi Sir, for making the workshop engaging and your attention to each of us. I was at a stage where I was able to use few features of Photoshop, but never able to understand the true power of it. Perhaps was a bit awed by the vastness of Photoshop. But you made the beginning very simple. Your explanation of the workflow is simple and easy to understand. I am not practicing the steps of the workshop, but I would have loved to have an extra day of hands-on in the workshop. Thanks again for offering to answer any queries and helping in future. I truly appreciate your efforts!! Thanks Sir
Rahul Saharan on the Hasselblad Workshop with Eolo Perfido
It was by far the best workshop I have ever attended. Incredible indeed. Every moment was special from morning till evening. Thanks to Xploring Light for organising such amazing workshop. I personally learnt a lot. thanks again for the efforts put in. Eolo was amazing. Looking forward to more such workshops.
Pooja Rajput (New Delhi)– Post Processing – Beyond Basics Workshop
The beyond basic workshop on photoshop–At the outset let me congratulate Xploring Light for bringing us a brilliantly well structured workshop under the guidance of Jasminder Oberoi. The workshop mentored by Rajneesh Panwar was one of its kind and was indeed a great learning experience,the interaction during the sessions was a great confidence booster and kept the learners alive.their was no holding back in terms of sharing knowledge and paying individual attention to each participant. kudos to the team.
Koshyk Koshy (Faridabad) – Post Processing – Beyond Basics Workshop
I joined for the Post Processing Workshop, Beyond Basics with some trepidation. For one thing, I was not sure, at my age (Late Sixties) if I would fit in with the rest of the group. Secondly, I was a bit concerned about my own levels of skill and understanding of Photoshop, which I use minimally. Would the instructor be able to carry a novice like me along? Would I really need advanced skills and knowledge of Photoshop? I am glad to say, I had no issue either about my advanced age or my low levels of skills. Rajneesh Panwar is an awesome teacher. His own knowledge and skills of the various intricate operations of Photoshop cannot fail to impress even a hard-nosed cop like me. Add to it his immense patience and admirable communication skills and what more can you ask from a mentor? Jassi complemented and supplemented Rajneesh with admin support and timely interventions and hands on support. The subject was so vast, complicated and intricate one wishes the Workshop was longer. Once you return home and start working on what one learned during the two eventful days, you realize what you had missed all these years. Thank you Jassi and Rajneesh for this wonderful gift! Hope we get to work together again. All the best.
Vinay Sinha (New Delhi) – Post Processing – Beyond Basics Workshop
Attended the two day post processing work shop – Beyond Basics of photoshop mentored by Jassi and Rajneesh. It was a wonderful experience and the quality of the mentoring was top notch and extremely high class. Rajneesh has an exceptional command over photoshop and he was more than willing to share it with the participants and then there was Jassi who would often come to the rescue of the amateurs like me and further explain it in his own simple and effective style. Loved it.
Vinayak Garg (New Delhi) – Post Processing Beyond Basics Workshop
I attended a 2 day workshop on editing photo using Photoshop. I would highly recommend it to anyone who is a serious photographer and would like to make photos more impactful. Jassi Sir has deep insights into photography and really understands the art. I was really happy that he kept emphasizing that photoshop is not an excuse to take bad photos, it is for you to make your good photos amazing! I am really happy that what we learnt was practically relevant, and I could straight away begin working on my own photographs. Sir provided us a step-by-step workflow which is really helpful. I am now able to make my photos look stronger, by just spending 5-10 minutes on them.
Priyanka Singhal (New Delhi) – The Art of Creating Black and White Workshop
I attended black and white post processing workshop beyond basics and the best I can say is I fell in love with this art. I feel how everything comes out with black and white that can never be told through the coloured version. Thanks to Rajneesh for making it an understandable and easy process plus helping me with some easy traits to deal with problems during an ongoing workflow. My vision has been changed since then and I feel so confident about my work now which I use to lack earlier whenever I see good piece of work from renowned photographers. The point was how they make even a black and white picture so communicative? And it was answered well here in workshop. Every little thing in a picture was considered and taken care off to be enhanced in the best possible way!
As a suggestion I just felt that duration should be for less hours and to be divided in two days as it will help everyone to understand and grasp more knowledge and to be able to adapt and remember for long.
Dr. Poonam Singh (New Delhi) – Post Processing Beyond Basics Workshop (Dec. 2015)
I take extreme pleasure in extending my thanks for such an amazing workshop.It is very rare in this time and age to so benevolently share your knowledge which I could gather was achieved by an in depth and relentless hard work behind the scenes.I hope I have imbibed some of it to built upon this to pursue this interesting art form further. Time and again I could see my patience waning on my slow learning curve but Rajneesh never lost his cool in reiterating the same concept nth times till I understood it. Every time Jassi asks me to rate his tour/workshop I am reminded of a story that was quoted in my childhood about Dr Rajendra Prasad who was given 101 marks out of 100 with the remark “examinee is better than the examiner”.I don’t have the audacity to be an examiner but you are giving me the right to hold the pen then I can draw an analogy to say I would rate it 6 out of 5. Hope that suffices. Great going guys. Cheers!
Gurpreet Sehra (New Delhi) – Portrait Photography Workshop Jan 2016
To begin with Jassi Sir being a Faculty for Photographers is a Great Person. He explains ones Query with the Language and terminology one can easily understand and can retain for ever. Looking forward for More Great Sessions in Future
Abhishek Dhakate (Nagpur) – Portrait Photography – The Art of Capturing Emotions (Jan 2016)
This was indeed a masterclass. The master himself sharing the insights on clicking portraiture was indeed amazing. I found my passion in clicking Portraits. I have been clicking portraits since a long time now. To be honest like most of us do, I also read a hundred articles by different photographers on clicking portraiture be it street or indoor portrait shoot. When I came for the masterclass somewhere I had in mind that more r less the same things will be shared in this one too.BUT,Its Xploring Light and Jassi Oberai we are talking about. It might sound very dramatic but couldn’t find a more apt line to describe this,“Cheete Ki chaal, Baaz ki nazar aur Xploring Light ke Workshops par sandeh nahi karte. Kabhi bhi maat de sakti hain.”Indeed “maat” (defeat) de hi di sabko…As the masterclass started Jassi shared his experience of clicking portraiture. The tips that he shared were just something beyond what I had read or heard. What I always thought portraiture was, or rather what my ideas were of clicking portraiture was just crushed within minutes of the class. The points shared by Jassi in the masterclass were all new, they had come from an experience of years of practice and learning. To my good luck I had an assignment right from the very next day of the masterclass. I applied those simple tricks and the results were amazing. Once again thanks to Jassi Sir and Xploring Light for giving this wonderful opportunity to knowledge thirsty photographers like me to learn and grow.
Abhishek Dhakate (Nagpur) – Art of Creating Black and White (Jan 2016)
Writing a feedback for Xploring Light like I have been saying is a difficult task. Its been more than two years now that I have been associated with Xploring Light. I have seen myself grow as a Photographer and an artist in these two years. When I began Photographing I didn’t know where my interest was. Whether I wanted to do wildlife, or weddings etc. However I found my passion in clicking portraiture. In clicking those emotions that people have. Everyday people. Now I like clicking on the streets as well doing indoor shoots for my clients.Like I said I found my interest as a portrait photographer, to be specific a Black and White Portrait Photographer. I have been always processing my portraits in Black and White. But I always felt that there was something lacking. Some how I was not satisfied with them even when my clients were satisfied and happy with it.This workshop just totally changed the way I used to process my images in Black n White, not only portraits but also landscapes. As I came back I did a Portrait shoot and just followed the workflow which I learned in the workshop. Result, AMAZING. Finally I was satisfied. For the first time as an artist I felt that what I had seen was achieved. Had a real good sleep after that.Thanks to Jassi and Rajneesh for this one…If you are in Love with BnW, this is one of those workshops you cant afford to miss..

It was my 2nd time association with Mr. Jassi Oberai, first a photo tour – Ladakh in Winters and now for basic post processing class. Both experiences were amazing with him. The way he illustrates is simply superb. His work flow for post processing is very simple to learn yet very effective in terms of results. He focuses on the core problems and has small but effective steps to resolve them.
It was a 2 days workshop and I can bet no one can cover that much in a full week class. The workshop is very productive in terms of learning. Now I can enhance my images with minimal steps.
I heartily recommend Mr. Jassi for any kind of photography course. He is the master of photography and never hesitate to share his knowledge to others.
Looking forward for future association with him.

Dear Mr. Jassi, It was indeed a great learning from you on photoshop basics. You have a God gifted knack of teaching by making the most complicated things look simple and easy. Keep up the good work. I look forward to attend more classes run by you. God bless.

Frankly, one of the most productive courses I have ever attended. Small batch size of just 4 studends ensured that we had all the attention of Mr Jassi that we needed. More importantly, unlike in most courses, entire time, from 10AM to 5PM with a small break for working lunch was gainfully used.
The course is beautifully planned and structured. I have learnt processes in photoshop that I don’t think I could have learnt from internet or from some less accomplished person. The icing on the cake came as Mr Jassi’s offer to help even after the course is over.
In short, a full Paisa Vasool and more importantly, Time Vasool course. Strongly recommend to anyone who is keen to get his hands on Photoshop quickly without much pain
