Like most people, the Festival of Colors first entered my awareness through pictures I came across on the internet & social media. After putting my eyeballs back in my head after the first time I saw those insanely colorful images, my first thoughts were: What is THAT?!?! WHERE is That?!?! and HOW do I get there?!?! I eventually made it to Holi and, for once, reality lived up to the hype. Maybe you’ve seen similar photos and asked some of the same questions. I’m going back to photograph my third Holi Festival in March 2020 (join me!), so I thought I would share some knowledge and lessons from my past experiences.

There's more to photography than f-stops and photoshop. Creativity is a muscle, I can teach anyone the Photographer's Eye. Read my blog to learn more.
It turns out that the camera in your pocket is a powerful too for developing your Photographer’s Eye and sharpening your creative vision. Since most of the technical decisions are made for you, a phone camera frees you to focus on the image, which, after all, is what really counts.
My favorite way of refueling the inspiration gas tank whenever I'm feeling creatively blah is going somewhere I've never been before and disconnecting myself from the rest of humanity for a bit. But let’s face it, none of us get to do this nearly enough.
