Can you believe it? I can’t actually believe it myself. I’ve always said that I’m not keen on travelling to India. But then I went on my first photo workshop in November 2013 and less than three months later, in February 2014, I was on my second photo workshop – again in India.
Of course, I didn’t go to the same location – this time I went to Jodhpur (which is still in Rajasthan, like Jaipur and Pushkar) but it’s a completely different city. Rather than travelling to different places, we decided to stay six nights at a home stay in Jodphur so we have time to ourselves and to enjoy the trip.
Patrick and I went with Gary from F8 Photography again, but as we were a group of nine students, he brought along another photographer, Ian Taylor, who is specialised in kids portraits. This would help to balance the workshop between street scenes and portraits.
Gary and Ian travelled to Jodhpur already earlier – so they scouted out the locations that we were going to explore. Both told us in advance what to expect in each place and what we should aim for. They also asked us for our portfolio and what we would like to get out of the workshop – so we were off to a good start.
The whole group was very diverse – not only where we all from different backgrounds and countries, but our style of pictures included everything from gritty black and white street scenes over wide landscape shots to macro pictures of flowers. It was definitely eye opening to see each other’s pictures at the end of the day!
We stayed in Jodhpur to explore the city, went up to the fort and had a great trip out to the desert – so follow me over the next days to learn more about this amazing journey!
