As many as 35 shutterbugs from Jaipur relished a one-of-its-kind enriching photography experience on a Saturday morning in August as they gathered together to capture the diverse natural, architectural and geometric perspectives of Jawahar Kala Kendra (JKK). The occasion was a Photo Walk organized by JKK with five photography experts from the city — Dr Tabeenah Anjum, Arvind Jodha, Indrajit Bose, Rajesh Kumar and Suman Sarkar.
The participants were divided into five groups and each one of them covered various locations of JKK like the Open Air Theatre, Front Lawn, Dome Area, Terrace and Shilpgram. From lines and geometrical shots to flowers, birds and the picturesque interiors of Jawahar Kala Kendra, the participants captured various compositions during the walk. The walk gave the attendees not only an opportunity to hone their skills as a photographer, learn new ideas, and explore different compositions but also provided them with a chance to meet other camera enthusiasts and share their ideas with one another.
JKK is the perfect space for photography
A one-of-its-kind architectural marvel designed by Charles Correa, Jawahar Kala Kendra is the apt choice for shutterbugs to explore various compositions. One of the mentors of the walk, Dr. Tabeenah Anjum shared: “A photo walk at Jawahar Kala Kendra is no less than a class on the various aspects of photography such as leading lines, rule of thirds, geometry, texture, character, symmetry etc. Such kind of walks should be a permanent monthly feature not just for photography lovers of the city but also for tourists who can explore Jawahar Kala Kendra through a photographer’s eye.”
Another mentor of the walk, Rajesh Kumar said that the walk was a great learning experience for him as well. From the basics of camera like exposure, shutter speed and aperture, he also shared his knowledge with the participants about various angles and perspectives.
Sharing his experience of the walk, a young photography enthusiast, Eshan Harsh said: “It was great to be a part of this Photo walk. JKK is a place where you can always find something new whenever you visit. Its environment and ambience always make you feel good. I always love to explore something here and capture it through my lens.”
Another attendee of the walk, Nidhi Agarwal said: “The beautiful Geometry of JKK, speaking through patterns, lights and shadows coupled with photography enthusiasts led by expert mentors on a Saturday morning made for an incredible experience. I am glad to have taken part in it and eagerly look forward for more such walks.”
