Introduction of the Festival
This festival start many years ago. It born as a simple moment of encounter between the caravaners who exchanged goods and their camels, it gradually expanded to become the largest camel trade fair in the world. The Camel Festival is a colorful fair where thousands of people, camels and horses come from all parts of the nation every year. This village is situated on the edge of a small lake that is said to be of divine origin. According to tradition a lotus flower fell from the hand of Brahma while he was absorbed in meditation and from the petals gushed water that gave rise to the Pushkar lake. Along with the religious anniversary, a great festival has arisen over the centuries.

What eat in Pushkar Mela
Photographing the Pushkar Mela without eating Local food is a grave sin. In fact it would be an incomplete Workshop. So during this day we will taste amazing ethnic food recipes. Indeed the Rajasthan’s cuisine is rich and diverse alike its culture and tradition. So any photographers will be delighted to explore the gastronomic delights in this desert state. It is home to dominant flavors as the climate here is arid which allows for the production of famous Indian spices used in the various iconic dishes made here.The culinary style of the region to a great extent shaped up according to the bellicose lifestyle of the natives. Unavailability of a variety of fresh vegetables, fruits and other ingredients and scarcity of water due to the arid nature of the region has profound effect on the cooking style of the locals.

All our trips are born with the idea of a photographic work in a responsible, ethical and respectful way. Before each trip, the participants will be instructed in the ethical code aimed at not being in unpleasant situations. Anyway, It is recommended to read the travel assistance section regarding the seriousness of the sanctions in India for drug use etc. For read more about ethical code just check my post about responsible travel photography.
Sustainable photography should be truly important to a responsible traveler. In this regard I try to do my small part and to follow some guidelines when I travel and do my workshop. A sustainable model of photographic culture is absolutely necessary right now. So, in the way we pay attention to these things in our daily life, it is possible to include those passages in our photographic activities.For example, start using reusable some eco-friendly products.
Reusable straw & cleaner.
Natural Insect Repellant.
Solar battery pack.

Invest for skills and experience
I think the best reasons to attend a photography workshop is that you can learn how to make better photos. Also i believe that investing in experiences is a much better investment than investing in gear. Also you have some benefit that you don’t find on line or for free. In conclusion attending a workshop you can gain distilled wisdom about photography from the instructor.

When you attend a workshop get into it. Can be obviously but some time is not. Therefore when you attend a workshop, know that you need to work hard, if you actually want to improve your photography. Indeed you have to be really focus and remember yourself often why you are there.
