Photography Tour in Kathmandu Overview
You’ll learn how to take better photos
Ajay’s feedback helped me to see a “scene” and be able to capture it with my camera in a way I often struggled with before. A great example was at the beginning of the tour when we stumbled upon a lady and her makeshift shop.
It was only after Ajay’s suggestion to squat down to get a different angle that I was able to capture the whole scene in order to tell the story of the lady and her shop.
This is how I shot the scene the first time; zoomed in too much and took the image from an upper angle.
This is how the shot came out after Ajay’s feedback and advice; capturing the whole scene.
