Photography is a visual medium for narrating stories. It can deceive as well as be a robust empirical data collection medium. We seek the latter. This course intends to train enthusiasts into the art of storytelling through photography. Architecture is an experiential medium and photographs can try to emulate the experience. However, a photograph is a moment captured in time and space, How does one create a storyboard for the multiplicity of experiences of the space? How can photographic documentation help us focus on the story of the structure to narrate its tales?
Photographers follow certain thumb rules on light, exposure, shadow etc. instead if the focus of the photograph is how to capture life as is? - the harsh afternoon sun and the people stooping to find shade, the bird which makes an abandoned structure it's home and eventually covers it with bird droppings, the little child who climbs up the compound wall deceives the glass shards on the wall and jumps into the compound with his friends and many more interactions of life with space.
We believe that if learners are trained into seeing the smallest details of utility, these observations once analyzed and synthesized will make them better designers.

Amit Pasricha is one of the world’s celebrated panoramic photographers. He is well published and believes that photography, as the most powerful modern language of today, must be used to draw attention to those aspects that stand neglected. Amit Pasricha’s lens looks at India the way few others do. One of the foremost panoramic photographers in the country, he uses a technique that stitches together multiple images to create a single image that is far larger or wider than a camera can capture, or indeed the human eye can take in at a glance. A third-generation photographer, Pasricha, 51, has worked on several projects that have been turned into highly acclaimed coffee-table books. They include India at Home, a fascinating account of people from across India captured in their homes, and The Sacred India Book, which examines the role of religion in everyday life, all shot in his signature panoramic style.
