A candid moment captured in Little India

Event Details

Join Karen Lucas for a fun walk off the beaten track in Little India where you’ll discover some of Singapore’s most beautiful and unique Shophouses and wildly colourful street art. 

Find out how to add creativity and originality to your shots and be inspired by the many ways these unique historic buildings and works of art can be photographed. 

  • 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 meet up at 40 Petain Road where you’ll find a block of the prettiest shophouses in Singapore.  We’ll then walk towards Jalan Besar (photographing some lovely old and restored, characterful shophouses along the way) to see the most unique shophouse style we’ve ever come across.

Then we’ll make our way towards Kerbau Road where you’ll find the most colourful shophouse in Little India, and along the way we’ll stop to photograph 4 beautiful murals tucked away in the side streets.

Every time we stop at a scene, Karen will share her recommendations for camera settings, lens choice and creative framing options.  She’ll often demonstrate how to best capture the scene to get you started and then she’ll come around whenever time permits to check on your progress, see if you need help, and give you 1-to-1 feedback on your photos.

In Little India’s residential back streets, you’ll find some of the most beautiful, colourful and unusual shophouses in Singapore and these will be the focus of this walk. 

There are so many different way to capture shophouses so we’ll be using both the wide angle and telephoto lenses to capture an interesting series of photos that tells the story of these heritage buildings.

Shophouse collages are all the rage these days so this is an ideal opportunity to get you started on your own work of photo art. 

We’ll also take a few diversions down some side streets to photograph some striking murals and we’ll look at ways we can incorporate local elements and people into the scenes.

“A very big thank you to Karen for her constant constructive feedback and patience. I always learn so much on these walks!”

“I’ve attended several of Karen’s photography workshops and walks and loved every minute. Her passion for her subject and enthusiasm for teaching is totally inspiring. Her sense of humour, creativity and joie de vivre permeate the lessons and field trips and her clear explanations of the technical bits enable even the most technophobic to get creative. Highly Recommended!”
