Capturing unique perspectives at a photo walk at Jawahar Kala Kendra

As many as 35 shutterbugs from Jaipur relished a one-of-its-kind enriching photography experience on Saturday morning 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.
