Just a quick update on our tour. We're in Jaipur now having just left the Pushkar fair. Our group of ten is having a great time. While in Jaisalmer we were working on sillouettes during our evening camel safari to the Khuri Dunes. Every one in our group got some great images. Here's an example I shot using my Canon EOS 1D Mark II set at cloudy white balance and minus 1 exposure compensation. Other tour participants have shots just like this one and even better!
A few days ago we ran across Nevada Wier and the National Geographic Photo Tour group during a sunrise shoot at Gadisar Lake. Nevada is a delightful woman and we chatted about photography for a while and realized that we were staying at the same hotel in Jaisalmer! Then at Pushkar we ran into her again. It seems that the NG tour is on a similar itinerary. What a small world. Check Nevada's excellent blog (just google Nevada Wier). Photo above courtesy of Ayn Brown
I'll try to update this blog when we get to Agra tomorrow. We're heading to the back side of the Taj Mahal for some sunset reflection shots. Meanwhile Jim is with his Day of the Dead tour in Oaxaca Mexico. Life is good.
