Get up early and walk to the Mela ground. Mela ground (fairground) is less than 10 minutes walk. We will explore photography opportunities when the sun is low. After some time we will head back to the hotel to eat breakfast. We will have a small discussion, group photos and then start individual goal setting for the tour. During the afternoon you will be free to explore on your own or rest at the hotel. After lunch, we set our foot out again and get to the mela ground to capture horses and other animals and take pictures of performers. When it gets completely dark we will do our special photography workshop where we will explore a few special techniques. Eat dinner and call it a day.
We will get up early, get to the mela ground but this time each person will have their personal goal. After breakfast, we will have free time to explore. Then we meet for lunch and have a group photograph. Afterward, we will review images and discuss the next steps where mentors will guide you to excel at your kind of photography. We will try to help you recognize and then work on your personal style. As the evening comes we will prepare to say the heartbreaking goodbye to your newly formed buddies. But hey, c'mon nothing lasts forever. The good thing is that we have WhatsApp to stay connected. Yay!!
Return to Delhi early morning.
