ABOUT THE WORKSHOP:
Travel photography is a broad genre encompassing the many different aspects that make each of our travels unique and personal. Some might be interested in photographing people, while others might find monuments to be more alluring. For some, it might be the grandeur of nature’s landscapes that beckon, while for others the effort might be worth it only when photographing an endangered animal.
Whatever be your passions and interest, travel photography can be an extremely engaging and rewarding experience; albeit one that comes with its own set of challenges and ‘rules’ that must be followed, only to be broken.
The workshop is broadly divided into three components: Before You Go, On The Road, After You Are Back. Click on the tabs to view more details about the workshop.
This travel photography workshop is broadly divided into three components:
1. BEFORE YOU GO: From planning when and where to travel, to creating an itinerary that is conducive to photography – a lot can be done in the planning stage.
2. ON THE ROAD: This is the largest chunk of the workshop. We start with certain fundamentals of composition, framing, colour, backgrounds etc. And then do some outdoor exercises to put these into practice. After a quick review of the participants’ images, we do a session on how to break the ‘rules’ that we just followed. We then touch upon a select few advanced concepts – playing with depth of field, multiple exposures etc, just to open everyone’s eyes to the many possibilities of travel photography.
3. AFTER YOU ARE BACK: Don’t let your clicks just languish on a memory card. Play with them, edit them and most definitely print them – for that’s a great way to improve your skill.
All through the workshop, we’ll touch upon travel photography hacks: What do you do when things aren’t in your control? Too many people? Barely any light? Overcoming shyness and more!
The workshop is open to adults of all ages; and it requires no prior experience of photography, since the methods are based more on intuition and experimentation rather than on technical details. The only requirements for the workshop are loads of enthusiasm and bringing along any sort of camera for the practical exercises – even a phone camera will do.

Some of Kunal’s selected works are also available as fine-art prints; and in mid-2016 a book with Kunal’s photography of Mumbai’s housing-typologies was launched. Besides photography workshops, Kunal is also engaged in teaching photography via how-to tutorials and photo-walks.
