By the sunset time we reached a beautiful location with a lake, sand dunes and with mountains surrounding it, and few scattered houses far away. Our team leader thought it is the right time and place for nature and model shoots.
They gave us few tips and assigned us to take few photographs of our choice which they will review later in the evening.
Around thirty members, we were a huge gathering, but distributed either singly or in groups of two to three depending on interests and partners.
People interested in model shoot were shown how to use daylight, flash and reflector. As a beginner, interested in nature and wild life photography, I walked away trying to take some landscape photos.
By the time we winded up here it was almost dark and we reached our night halt hotel very late in the night.
We reached our hotel in Diskit late in the night. All of us were tired and had their supper and retired to bed. We were informed that there will not be any power after 11Pm. We were told that whenever we reach hotel we should first charge our camera batteries not to have problem later in day while on photographing spree.
In most places in Ladakh, solar power is used. There will not be any power any time after 10PM. By this time we have to finish our meals and retire to bed. The next day when we were in Diskit we had power supply till 11.30 Pm. That is the only day we could have review of some of our photographs. Each one was asked to submit their best two photographs that were taken in raw. Those were reviewed and told how that could become a better photograph.
