Travelling is the most important content of the photography as we all know. More you travel more you learn. The travelling help you to introduce new people, new custom, new weather condition, new places, new language, new festivals, new tradition etc. INDIA is a famous and known country for different languages, religion, weather, place etc Unity in diversity is the ICON of the INDIA. Travelling also introduce you discomfort zone where nothing is in you hand except facing and handling the situation. There are few worst scenario mentioned below
- Too much crowded place
- Poor weather condition
- Too much heat/cold/rain etc
- Hills and no conveyance at all
- Language problem
- basic services issues
- No internet, no phone etc
In any scenario there is only photography who always works better. In this case photographer must have good perspective and good observation to shoot. Sometime no plan is good plan. I am mentioning few important tips which might work better to shoot. These tips are specially based one my practical experiences. I hope this will also work for you
- Must try to connect with local people, local guide etc
- Visit all the best possible place and at least visit these location twice because anytime can give you best shots
- When in a crowd then must hunt for suitable position to stand from where you can shoot and zoom lens works better to shoot close-up
- Avoid shooting in rain if not carrying any protection to cover-up your photography kit. Even a single drop can be really harmful for your camera sensor.
- Must carry less equipments.
- Spend sometime with local time to be familiar with the location and people. It really helps
- If facing language problem them face expression and hand movement, gestures is the only option. But it is also a good exercise or exceptional situation.
- When you do not get good food to eat then rely only on the fruits because fruits cannot be harmful in any country.
- Always use local transport and always be on time to catch the bus. Sometime there is no frequent connectivity of the local transport.
- Be safe in all the worst scenario.
Conclusion – Mostly we shoot in organised situation. We behave accordingly but shooting in worst scenario shapes you as a much matured photographer. I suggest you must try at least once to shoot in worst scenario.
Keep experimenting! Have a wonderful and happy photography life to you all
