The first 3 workshops take place in the classroom where you’ll apply the techniques you learn during both indoor and outdoor photo shoots.
The last workshop takes place entirely on location. You’ll photograph in a Hindu temple, and a market, and we’ll venture off the beaten track to discover some hidden gems in the back streets of Little India.
