After an exciting and action-packed week, the Kolkata Introduction to Design/Composition Street Photography Workshop has come to an end! Unfortunately Adam was not able to join and teach, but me, Mikael, and Nick had a great time in the colorful streets of Kolkata.
For the workshop we focused on a different theme everyday, starting off the day with lecture/theory – and spending the rest of the day shooting. I am both amazed and impressed how much Mikael and Nick were able to improve during the week. Both in their photography and confidence shooting in the streets! One great thing that both of them did was when photographing the locals of Kolkata, they talked to them, laughed with them, and best of all – shared their photos with them (albeit only on the back of their LCD screens).
The first 3 days they shot in black and white, and the last 2 days they shot in color. An overview of the week:
- Day 1: Diagonals
- Day 2: Figure-to-ground
- Day 3: Depth
- Day 4: Color
- Day 5: Anything Goes
