Street photography is a very interesting genre of photography. Step outside the boundaries of the four walls and your comfort areas, with your camera; smell and experience the dirt on the roads, noise, stares and madness of rush on the streets. The world that you see is the background and the light available is all that you have and everything is beyond your control to set, yet it is a beautiful way to experience life, capturing the candid moments unfolding in front of you, capturing the live moments of life. Street photography does not mean only the people, it can be the atmosphere and environment, small businesses, food, houses or character of the place. Take images of the vendors, food stalls, people rushing home from work, kids playing, the modern life and the traditional life; literally every aspect of life in its real form from every possible angle, the movements and the moments, every dimension and aspect of life on the streets of Mumbai, feel and capture the moments of real life!

WHAT IS AN EXPERIENTIAL WORKSHOP?

An experiential workshop is a unique concept, where you walk in, get guided, try your hands on ‘do it yourself’ practical exercises and then, walk away with some amazing images. During an experiential workshop, our experts hand hold you on your camera settings and create an environment for you to get that perfect shot. An experiential workshop doesn’t involve any theory session. These are straight to action workshops specially crafted to guarantee that you will go back with an experience that you will never forget and images that you had ever made.

This experiential workshop comes with a contest sponsored by our partner Manfrotto. The images that you make during the workshop will be judged by our panel of experts. The best three will be awarded. We have three Manfrotto PIXI mini Tripod, White to give away to the winners.
