Maiden One-on-One Street Photography Workshop in Hyderabad


My first One-on-One Street Photography Workshop in Hyderabad just concluded and it was intense 2 days packed with full of fun and street photography.

Recently taken a break from successful career as an IT professional Harsha  Areti is a passionate photographer. Though it’s his first real time encounter with some serious street photography, seeing his dedication, eagerness to learn added to his uncanny ability to produce images in the quick time is something that is not easily done by the first timers and his growth was brilliant over the last couple of days. With bit more practice and experience, I’m sure he will produce some good serious work in future as well.

I am sure at the end of the workshop he understand one thing how its important to go “close” to the subject and still be invisible.

Street Photography With HWS Team at old city { Azhakhan Zehra, Purani Haveli and Darul Shifa }


For the last couple of weeks, I have been visiting the old city of Hyderabad as part of a group called HWS (Hyderabad weekend shots). These are Azhakhan Zehra, Purani Haveli and Darul Shifa. To say that I found the old Hyderabad to be full of street-stories would be an understatement. Every nook and corner of the street presented before me a life of its own, with lots of shades n characters. I have tried by best to capture some of it for you. Let me know how you find it…

Are we in a hurry??Are we in a hurry??
