This event surely has to be the highlight of the year for photographers!
Thaipusam is a fascinating, colourful and vibrant festival where Tamil Hindus show their faith by piercing their bodies and carrying heavy burdens on a 4.5km walk from Sri Srinivasa Perumal Temple in Little India to Sri Thendayuthapani Temple on Tank Road.
The festival is an absolute feast for the senses and is the perfect opportunity to develop your travel and people photography skills as you get right up close to the devotees during their preparations for the long walk.
- Individual Feedback on the photos taken during the walk (via online forum)
- Complimentary Membership to the Karen Lucas Photography Club, an exclusive forum where you can ask questions, find inspiration, get feedback on your photos, and access members-only events and offers.
We’ll start the walk at the rear entrance to the Sri Srinivasa Perumal Temple and we’ll spend most of our time in the outdoor and indoor courtyards of the temple where the preparations take place and where the walks begin. We’ll finish our walk on Serangoon Road catching the devotees during their long walk.
The event will be crowded, making it impossible to move together as a group, so after a briefing session when we’ll go through camera settings and creative ideas, you’ll move off in groups of two or as individuals if you prefer.
Karen will be walking around the courtyards to see if you need help and give you 1-to-1 feedback on your photos (that’s if you can tear yourself away from shooting for a minute!). We’ll meet up at various points during the walk, and then we’ll finish by leaving the temple with the devotees and doing part of the long walk with them.
