Mr.Kaustav das, Kolkata :Ma'am,I am not good enough with words to write accolades, hence was wondering how to express my take on the RR Master Class 2017.Finally I have mustered the following:For me it was immense. My entire perspective of photography got changed within the first hour of the first class room session.
Aftermath, shooting at the field and personal care from you, have helped me emerged as a photographer better than what I was before 29th Nov'17. Yesterday I was going through all the photographs, previously taken (and also appreciated by people) and I did not get one good photograph (trust me on this). Also, now I can feel that my Nikon D7100 is slowing turning into an extension of my body. I have come to know him better than what I have ever thought that I would.
To sum up: Those 4 days with you, were a turning point in my spree as a photographer. Have already started counting days for next master class. Thank you.

Ms.Viji Rajaram, Coimbatore,Tamil Nadu: Thank you Rathika for making one of my dreams come true, you are a wonderful caring person, wanting to share your knowledge and skill with all unstintingly, lovely workshop in all ways.

Dr.Deepthi, Chennai, Tamil Nadu: Thanks for the excellent masterclass. Learned a lot, started from scratch.

Ms.Ranjani Raja, Chennai, Tamil Nadu: Thank you Rathika for teaching me how to hold a camera and click!It is really amazing how you motivate us, looking forward for lot more birding times with you.

Feedback from Head of the Department, Ms. Ramalakshmi Lakshmanan, School of Media technology and communication,Vel Tech Deemed University, Chennai.

With a cutting-edge curriculum and learner-centric pedagogy that we offer at Veltech (deemed to be University), we are always open to pushing the frontiers of learning. One such opportunity was when we could invite Ms.  Rathika Ramasamy, one of the foremost wildlife photographers,  to share her insights into wildlife photography. The students of the School of Media Technology and Communication at Vel tech had a fantastic interactive session with Ms. Rathika. The session encompassed the various aspects of wildlife photography including technical, creative, aesthetic and ethical concerns.

Her ice-breaking approach,  vivid presentation and the motive of selfless knowledge sharing made a value-based learning session. Ms.  Rathika's wildlife photography is inspiring Ms.  Rathika leads by example as she took the road less travelled. We look forward to another intense session.

Feedback from Youth4Clicks workshop participant: Amar, Dhamtari, Chattisgarh

I would like to express my gratitude to you for being a role model and an inspiration. It's not easy to find a true teacher to look up to, so it’s been a wonderful experience to learn from you Mam. Learning from you changed my entire perspective towards photography. You helped me how i can change my mistakes into skill and most importantly I learned is, camera is not just a Equipment but it's our third eye that"s connected to our mind to frame out beautiful Images.Your teaching technique is different from every one you balance your classroom session with field works, which helped alot. Those elements I learned in class room you just make it so easy to me to use my skill in the field with your due care and on field reviews.

Those 7 days of learning spent with you at Kaziranga National Park was excellent days of my life it took me steps ahead in Photography. I would like to show my profound gratitude for the experience that I've gained from you. You have been an exemplary Guru and Blessing of God to me. Million thanks are to less to say thanks for your guidance and support.
Thanking you Mam.

Feedback of New Delhi workshop: Bhavesh K Munshi ,New Delhi
Hi Rathika,
I couldn't thank enough for the workshop, it was an excellent learning experience and watching you taking all those snaps was a real treat.

One of the most important learning i got that day was the taking correct exposure and how to use the exposure compensation based on subjects. All this is written in enough details in the last issue (May'11) issue of Smart Photography magazine, but I just couldn't understood it. But when you explained it and show it practical it was great, This will help me great in my future expeditions. The most successful outcome for me at individual level was taking pelican's in-flight shots with correct exposure and in-focus sharp images. For the first time i could click them (in-flight, in-focus, sharp with correct exposure). All credit goes to you.

Last but not least is thanks a lot for providing feedback on my shots taken during workshop. Again thanking you, I look forward to many many happy clicking. Thanks & Regards

Ms.Anita Mani, New Delhi
I found the workshop very instructive as it really opened up the possibilities of my DSLR. What a difference a hands on workshop makes! So much better than reading dry manuals. The balance of theory at the start followed by immediate implementation of all that one's learnt made for an excellent format. And the fact that you are learning from someone who is one of the best in the business is the icing on the cake!"
