This will be a 12-day photography adventure to one of the most beautiful parts of the world. Rajasthan is definitely the jewel in India’s crown. From cities of pink, blue and gold to lakeside palaces and desert villages filled with epic forts.
The reason why Rajasthan remains one of the most popular destinations in India lies in its rich diversity: from the barren Thar Desert and its amazing sunsets, the beautiful blue and pink cities to the tranquil majesty of the city of lakes – Udaipur. Rajasthan truly has it all!
Following in the foot steps of the amazing Steve McCurry, our adventure will start from the capital – New Delhi from where we will take a plane to the blue city – Jodhpur.
In Jodhpur we will explore the small streets, the step wells, the old markets, the beautiful Rao Jodha desert rock park and the majestic Mehrangarh fort overlooking the city. We will get up early to photograph the city bathed in the amazing morning light and will photograph it from above at sunset.
From Jodhpur we will hire a car to reach the beautiful city of lakes – Udaipur and on the way there will stop to explore the gorgeous temple in Ranakpur. We will stay in Udaipur for a few days and explore its numerous sunset points and its gorgeous lakes. Optionally we will make a day trip to see the old fort in Chittorgarh.
On the last day we are taking an overnight train to go back to New Delhi and then a plane back home.
This is not going to be one of those luxury vacations where you are brought with a taxi to all the touristic spots and shown at what direction to point your camera. We will wake up early, explore the small streets, mix with the crowds, engage with the local people, search for amazing photo opportunities and shoot the sunset.
On this photography adventure you will:
- Learn and practice photography alongside a professional award winning photographer with a small international group of like minded people
- Experience firsthand the process of finding and creating great photos
- Learn how to create beautiful photos by using helpful compositional tips and techniques
- Learn how to use the available light to create engaging and beautiful images
- Train your eye to spot photographic opportunities
- Learn how to approach photographing street portraits and overcome your fear of engaging people on the street
- Practice and develop your unique photographic vision
- Immerse yourself in the amazing colourful life in Rajasthan, try the local cuisine, interact with fellow photographers and be inspired from the mind blowing surroundings
I will give personalised advice and feedback to all attendants and will help you go back home with some amazing photos!
