Shooting pictures on Holi can be very challenging. But trying to capture the essence of the beautiful festival helps you come up with some amazing images. Color is all in the air and you have to make sure to capture Holi in all its vibrancy.
Care you should take:
- Use plastic bags to prevent the entry of water in your camera lenses and bodies.
- Tape areas on zoom lenses; this could prevent the entry of water.
- Try using cling wrap for sandwiches on the camera body.
- You could use the camera raincoat.
- Keep a dry cloth with you.
You may not be able to focus to well, or expose to well due to external factors of the festival. However if you come out with some interesting images, you must give yourself a pat on the back.

Comments: That’s a very nice portrait Prasad. Since you did not title your image I would like to do it for you; “colorful expressions”. Well the expressions are incredible and she possible has almost every color on her face. I like the mischief in the girls eye. I like the fact that you have gone so close. You have managed to fill your fame very well.

Comments: Nice Capture Ritika. Also k0ol title. That would be every kids fantasy. I like the composition of the image. Also the emotions of the mother and child have come out quite well & Holi makes simple everyday emotions seem special.
It would have been great if you could do something about the bright background on the top right. It is moving my eye. However beside that great effort.
Congratulation Ritika, Hope to see you at the workshop !!!
