About The Event

Travel Photography Workshop by Darter Photography

At Badami, Karnataka. Visit our website for more information


Badami is known for its rock cut temples and a history dating back more than thousand years. Travel photographers see much more than just that; this small town offers a wide variety of photography opportunities. There are red sand stones glistening in the morning sun, waterfalls that come alive and tumble down the cliffs adjacent to the caves in the monsoon months, colonies of friendly people with photogenic face who are more than happy to be subjects for your camera, a rural life where you see women washing clothes in a lake next to men scrubbing a bullock’s hide, temples in leafy environs with roots of ficus trees drooping over the gopuras, brilliant landscapes of cliffs overlooking a lake,.. The list is very long.

Darter Photography takes you to this Badami and nearby places that are a mix of well-known as well as unknown, bringing you great photography opportunities that can keep your clicking finger busy. Learn to make appealing travel images on this workshop as you discover the corners of Badami.
