The presentation for a talk I recently gave at 'The Right Exposure' workshop for CRY (Child Rights and You) in Mumbai. It is a very basic presentation about photography for someone just starting to learn photography. "The Right Exposure" is an initiative by CRY to use photography as a medium to create awareness about Child Rights. The group consists of CRY volunteers who will learn photography and use it tell the stories of India's marginalized children.
