Some tips to make your experience more enjoyable!

PHOTOGRAPHIC EQUIPMENT-entry-level DSLR / mirrorless and mid-range zoom is really all you need. Of course, you can bring all your kit, but it is not a requirement for participation. Compact cameras and smartphones are also welcome. We recommend a wide angle lens for the interiors in temples. A laptop or tablet is advisable to view, download and share the photographs and for the workshop to run smoothly.
CLOTHING - Bring Light and breathable clothing, comfortable shoes (no trekking shoes needed), a sweater or fleece and a windbreaker, especially for the evening.
DRESS CODE-To visit places of worship wear modest clothing. The norm is knees and shoulders covered, so shorts and shirts are fine as long as these requirements are met.
