Feedback about the workshop
It was a great learning, to push ourselves one more step into photography. Going out and taking pictures is something I have been doing for last few years. But to build a story with an idea in mind and adding pictures towards it was difficult. Now I have learnt it. It has forced me to think, rather than just shoot. And it was a great group to be a part of. One of the beautiful part of the workshop was arranging or editing images to create a visual impact. - Chinmay Sahu
It was my first photography workshop in India and was truly amazing. I feel that I have learnt a lot from the presentations and later the editing of our work. It helped us to see other possibilities of our work. Having advises from other photographers always helps see different perspectives of that same work. The story making process was also interesting and I learnt new ways of sequencing images to create a story. I would love to participate for another workshop with you guys. Best of luck. Thank you. - Ratul
The experience at the Storytelling Workshop was great! Swarat and Vinod are both intense mentors with a passion for photography as a medium of storytelling and an art form. The workshop helped me think of storytelling as a process which involved not only photography but other mediums as well. What I will probably take away from here is the way to bring coherence to a story or series in terms of content as well as form and how to edit your story, where what to include to further the narrative is as important as what to leave out. Highly recommended for anyone who wants to broaden their photographic horizons. - Hoshner
The most important thing I have learnt from this workshop is that I'm not a poet, rather I prefer to write an essay. To be honest I might try to create something like 'Ganges' but I can't think of "Life is elsewhere". I never had this idea of editing table. The rigorous process of selecting and arranging the images is another thing I have learnt from this workshop. So basically I need to implement the ideas I got from here in my future work with my own style. And how can I forget about the people I have met there. I wish there was someone from North East to make the whole group a mini India. - Madhabendu
