Event Details

Got a 50mm Prime Lens but not too sure how to make the most of it?  Find out why these lenses are called Fast Lenses and why Portrait & Street Photographers love them on this fascinating tour to Little India’s colourful Tekka Market

  • 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 and end our photo walk at the entrance to Tekka Centre on Serangoon Road.

The market provides a great opportunity to work on your still life, travel portrait and street photography techniques and you’ll be challenged by the low light conditions, artificial vs natural light, and movement.

We’ve planned a route that takes in 3 very different sections of the market and you’ll have a different theme to photograph at each one.  Space in the market can be tight when there are crowds, so you’ll either be shooting individually or in groups of 2 or 3, and we’ll regroup every half an hour or so to share photos, ask questions and then move on to the next scene.

Every time we stop at a new scene, Karen will share her recommendations for camera settings 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 (if she can find you!).

The Tekka Centre is a landmark in Little India and well worth visiting, both for photography and shopping.

There’s a very interesting mix of Chinese and Indian cultures amongst the vendors, clientele and goods for sale and you could easily while away many hours here.

On the ground floor level there’s a wet and dry market and food court.  On the upper level there’s a variety of shops selling traditional Indian costumes, inexpensive casual clothes, Taoist and Buddhist paraphernalia, and toys, and there are tailors who can alter clothes in minutes.

We’ll be photographing on both levels, starting in the Wet Market where the fishmongers and butchers are great fun to photograph and there’s plenty of action to capture.  Then we’ll move on to the dry market where you’ll find lots of interesting produce and, finally, we’ll finish upstairs photographing amongst the colourful saris and costumes.

“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!”
