Men from Nandgaon village dress in their traditional clothes and adorn the role of Gopas (friends of Lord Krishna), while women from Barsana adorn the role of Gopis (friends of Radha). The men throw colors on women and the women fight back with batons. The aim of the men is to install a flag on the temple of Radha at Barsana and claim victory.
Both Men and Women prepare for Lath Mar holi much in advance and each year they employ new methods to outsmart each other.

We spend the day in Barsana, shooting the streets, head back in the evening for Vrindavan. An interactive session with review of images in the evening follows.

The next day we leave for Nandgaon, spend the day shooting the lanes of Nandgaon, this is a full day excursion to photograph Lath Mar Holi in Nandgaon. Holi in Nandgaon is the return visit for the Gopas of Barsana to play Holi with Gopis of Nandgaon. This time it’s the men from Barsana who carry a flag from their village to the Shriji Temple in Nandgaon and the women from Nandgaon try to stop them.
The occasion is marked by singing folk songs and is an experience to be treasured.
We head back to Vrindavan in the evening for a an extensive selection process from the images shot during the day. Mentors spend time with each participant one on one and cater to their specific needs and provide direction.

Last day, Morning half day shooting around the Bankey Bihari Temple in Vrindavan. The term Bankey suggests “bent at three places” and Bihari refers to “the supreme enjoyer” Thus, Bankey bihari is the benefactor of bliss and pleasure.

Songkran festival, Bangkok Workshop 12th-14th April 2019

in APF workshop by
© Vineet Vohra

Songkran festival is one of the best times to visit Thailand. Songkran is also known as the traditional Thai New Year. One of the Thailand’s biggest and grandest festivals. The most common sight during Songkran is the ultimate water flights which take place on the streets. It’s also the time when parties dominate the street scene.

Water as Symbolism Contradictory to what you may witness throughout Songkran, fun-loving Thais don’t just throw water at each other for no good reason (besides having a kick out of seeing other people soaking wet). The real meaning behind the splashes is to symbolically wash off all misfortunes in the past year, thus welcoming the new year with a fresh new start. Traditionally, Thais would politely pour a bowl of water on members of the family, their close friends and neighbours. As Songkran has taken a more festive note, a bowl becomes a bucket, garden hose and water guns, and the spirit of holiday merriment is shared amongst all town residents and tourists alike. “credit Bangkok.com”

APF is organising a 3 day intensive masterclass during this festival which is tailor made to cater to the needs of anyone who wishes to train their eyes to find order in chaos on the streets of Bangkok. Street photography is very rewarding but at the same time, one of the hardest genres to master. Our workshop would help ease the anxiety next time you hit the streets, would help solve the puzzle of composing compelling images in split seconds and most importantly it would help you to see.

During this masterclass, mentors will take the students out on the streets and pass on their tips and knowledge on capturing compelling images on the street. This masterclass includes classroom and shooting sessions. Detail lectures, critiques and selection process will be part of everyday session. We will also look into various composition aspects and the common mistakes while composing, understanding layering in photography, developing ones own style, understanding peripheral vision, ways to see and treat light, will present a video documentary of how their images are made as they shoot and how they fine tune their vision.

Vineet, Rohit and would also guide you through their signature – Gestalt Vision, widely applied in their images, which basically involves an attempt to organize visual elements into groups or unified whole by applying principles of composition.

Apply here for the Masterclass Send us a mail to register.

The mentors will accompany participants while shooting, observe them at work and give instant feedback and suggestions when required. Students will also have a chance to observe the mentors at work, learn their tricks and techniques.
