The "Capture Sharjah" program was delivered by the talented photographer Majid Al Bastki and the artist Mohammed Al Jasmi. During the workshop, they shared their experiences and introduced some photography techniques to participants like knowing the right angles, discovering new angles, building sequence, zoom techniques, video editing, and fundamental photography rules such as the rule of thirds, framing rule, and sizing rule to ensure image balance and symmetry. Participants have discovered unique ways of using natural elements like trees and plants to add unique aesthetics and colors to images. The participants were also introduced to 2 famous editing applications: "Lightroom" and "Photoshop Express," to enhance their image quality, beautify it and resize it to suit different networking platforms.
Drone photography was one of the key concepts covered in the program as well. Participants have discovered the type of drones, how to fly them, the importance of recognizing air movement, weather conditions, precautionary measures, and identifying authorized locations using the "My Drone Hub" application.
