Traveller of the Week: Tanya Khanijow

Tanya Khanijow started travelling and learning photography in 2016, she started off by expressing herself through her content on social media one frame at a time.

A traveller, blogger, vlogger and content creator, she loves to travel and find her self in different places every now and then. ‘What really drives me and encourages me to keep going is a never-ending need to explore and see the world’, says Tanya.

Tanya has always liked travelling from early childhood from the time her dad got posted to a new location, courtesy Indian Army.

Through the Indian Army, she has had the opportunity to stay at some of the most pristine locations in India. ‘I’ve changed as many as nine schools. And to be honest, I loved it. It provided me with a new perspective on a place, and people when I was as young as 3-4 years. I learned early on in life, the value of travelling and change’, she says.

 

During her college days, Tanya would find herself making plans on the spur of the moment to travel to different places. She would save her monthly allowance and hustle to travel. She has travelled in local trains, public buses, rickety mountain vehicles,  the list is endless.

 

Tanya has always loved the natural environment more than the comfort and education imbibed in a classroom. With that started her tryst with travel.

Not a full-time traveller yet, she spent 2017 working as well as travelling, intending to travel full time from next year.

Also a spontaneous traveller, she doesn’t plan the destination or things to do in advance. If she sees there is free time available on her calendar, she takes seconds to decide the best place for the time and plans economically by booking cheap flight tickets, she then skims through blogs and web resources for a brief basic idea of the culture, geography and differentiating factors of the place.

5 must-visit locations according to Tanya would be, Alappuzha in Kerala. The backwaters of Kerala are beyond beautiful and one must experience village life and a little by the water lanes. ‘Try living with locals and riding on a slow-paced boat instead of a motorboat. And don’t opt for a houseboat. Houseboats are large and can only traverse in broad canals. You’ll miss out on the village life experience’, stresses the travel junkie! Her next pick would be ‘The Himalayas’, right from North to West to the East, the entire stretch of the Himalayas is beautiful and unique, she personally feels, people who have not experienced it have missed out on something so far. Right from Uttrakhand to Valley of Flowers, Roopkund Trek, treks like Kareri lake, Bhrigu lake, Parashar lake in Himachal and recently the eastern side of Himalayas in Sikkim, it has always left her awe-inspired. Next is the white salt desert of Runn of Kutch – ‘One word, WOW! It’s beautiful, unlike anything. Especially the sight of a full moon during the night against the white sand’, she says.

Khanijow travels with a lot of camera equipment and instils everyone to have a dedicated space or compartment for everything whilst travelling. Sunscreen, mosquito repellent, paper soap, sanitizer and tissue paper are must-haves.

Battery pack, tripod, selfie stick – very useful commodities for travelling solo, especially if one is worried about running out of battery without a source of power for hours.

 

A big fan of chasing after sunrises and sunsets, she really enjoys waking up early and catching the morning action. It goes without saying, she loves travel photography and also her new found love for making videos.

 

A pretty impressive figure, 18 states have been covered by Khanijow along with a few international trips to countries such as China, USA, London, Aruba and Bhutan.

 

‘I think every lesson that I’ve learnt while travelling has been life-changing. But if I’ve to pinpoint one if you travel, you will change your life forever, for good’, is one life lesson she has learnt whilst travelling.

Creative Head of the week: Ajay Patel

Ajay Patel, a businessman by profession, always finds time to go out and click pictures with his friends. The lensman concentrates on displaying subjects distinctively and does not believe in so called ‘neat frames’. However, he likes to follow a minimal approach while clicking pictures.

 

Ajay tries to capture soothing aesthetics of a particular subject right from random surroundings to a unique setup. Since most of his pictures are clicked and processed on an iPhone 5s, there is no behind the scenes involved. Patel also brings his observation he’d like to depict, through his pictures!

 

New places, colours, food and people inspire this aesthetic loving photographer. He uses an iPhone 5s and OnePlus smartphones for most of his images even though he does own a Canon 600D. Snapseed, Mextures, VSCO and Lightroom are some of the apps he uses for editing images.

 

Having a keen eye for aesthetics and details since childhood, Ajay Patel became a part of the community where everyone shared a similar interest. ‘What really drives me to create pictures is I think the sense of belongingness I have built over the years with my friends over Instagram’, says Patel. These friends are not just people he has met through Instagram but are also the people he ends up spending a lot of time with and around.

Traveller of the Week: Arvind Patwal

Arvind Patwal belongs to Uttarakhand and is currently living in Delhi to pursue his graduation from Delhi University. A master at street photography, he currently works as a freelance photographer.

 

Arvind loves to research different places before starting his journey. He reminisces his first trip to Barsana at the time of the Holi festival. Excited to capture amazing colourful photography, he ultimately won.

 

Arvind Patwal

 

A group traveller by heart, he does like to travel solo depending on the situation. Though not a full-time traveller, travelling has always been a passion for him, a custom he wishes to follow.

 

A must visit for all the travel lovers out there, Arvind shares his favourite destinations with us. Anandpur Sahib during ‘Holla Mohalla’, Barsana during ‘Holi’, Varanasi during ‘Dev Dipawali’, streets of Kolkata, Deserts of Jaisalmer and Varanasi to be his favourite.

 

A planned traveller, his 5 must-haves for travelling include power bank, torch, blanket, dry fruits and a swiss knife. A lover of photography, the most interesting part for the young traveller is nonetheless, clicking pictures.
Covering states such as Rajasthan, Uttar Pradesh, Punjab and cities like Kolkata, one life lesson he has learnt through travelling is to take care of oneself and never get involved in drug addiction.

Hola Mohalla, Anandpur Sahib, Punjab

Dev Deepawali, Varanasi

Jodhpur, Rajasthan

An interesting fragment from the street photographer’s life involves around going to Anandpur Sahib for ‘Holla Mohalla’ with a few friends. He spent 4 nights in a car and enjoyed a lot while clicking pictures on the ground, says Arvind Patwal.

Interview with Wedding Photographer: Harsheen Jammu

Meet Harsheen Jammu, an IIM graduate and photographer

Harsheen Jammu

 

Inspiro India: Tell us something about yourself and how did you get started?

– Originally from a management background, an IIM graduate, it was my love for capturing the colours in our everyday life & the sentiments attached to them that pulled me towards photography. Clicking pictures is what truly makes me happy, it is fulfilling in all its dimensions.

 

Inspiro India: Can you talk a bit about your unique style and way of working?

– I don’t believe in planning a lot for a shoot as it brings in a certain expectation you tend to have with the output and you completely ignore the other possibilities. I try to incorporate the environment and emotions at that point of time in my frames.

 

 

Inspiro India: Did you face any kind of problems while pursuing this field? How satisfied do you feel after working in this field?

– My parents were not very supportive initially, but I was very adamant. Like all professions, most of the days, I feel happy about my choices but there are some difficult days as well.

 

Inspiro India: What is it about wedding-photography that interests you the most? What are your top three favourite photography locations? And Why?

– The fact that you are going to create a piece of history for someone which is going to be passed on to generations is something which fascinates me. No favourite locations as such. I believe there is beauty everywhere, you just need to observe for a while.

 

Inspiro India: If not this, What would have Harsheen been doing?

– Probably a civil servant.

 

Inspiro India: What is typically in your camera bag while travelling?

– I don’t shoot much while travelling. Something shall be experienced without cameras.

 

Inspiro India: Could you tell our readers how to reach such excellent results in travel wedding photography? What are you looking forward to purchase next?

– Just try to be a part of the family, connect with the environment and results would come. I am looking forward to purchase a wide lens.

 

Inspiro India: How has witnessing so many weddings changed your life/outlook?

– It has impacted me in a major way. I am very sure about what kind of a wedding I want and what is a complete no-no. On a serious note, you tend to examine families of different cultures on a very micro level and there is one common thing across all cultures and that is patriarchy.

 

Inspiro India: Describe your post-processing work flow And the equipment that you use?

– I use photo mechanic & lightroom for post processing. Equipment – iMac 27 inches 8GB RAM.

Inspiro India: What advice would the artist inside you like to pass on to our readers?

– What kind of Equipment you use plays a very minor role in your art. Explore, shoot, edit with whatever tools you have and you will be amazed by the results

Blogger of the Week: Charuta Arvind Yadav

Charuta Arvind Yadav is the Founder and Creative Head of art inspired, experimental fashion, DIY (do it yourself), travel and lifestyle blog named ‘Moda Yalda’. A masters degree holder in technology in Genetic Engineering, Charuta blogs about wearable art, street style and has recently started sharing her travel experiences via blogging.

 

A blog free of following set patterns or trends, the blogger always adds a personal touch to her blogs. ‘I would not force trends or brands down your feed. I have a strong voice and I believe in what I say and that’s very important otherwise you just become a part of the herd’, says Yadav.

 

Charuta Arvind Yadav

 

Her blog name, ‘Moda’ is derived from Spanish meaning ‘Fashion’ and Hebrew word “Yalda’ which means ‘Daughter/Birth’ which ultimately translates into ‘fashion’s birth or fashion’s daughter’ in English!

 

A fashion bipolar, she does not have a tedious approach to style. Experimental by nature, Charuta wants to try everything and wear everything that makes her feel good without caring about the rules. ‘I do love vintage finds and statement pieces’, mentions the blogger.

 

Greatly inspired by art, travel and people, the engineer started her blog 3 years back. With an idea to document her personal style, she started wearing self-designed hand painted clothes turning it into a visual diary. Charuta uses a Nikon D5100 for her artistic pictures.

 

Blogging is much more, to have a voice of your own is one such thing she believes in. To create content of which one is proud of, something that is cohesive with one’s vision should be a top priority when it comes to blogging. The blog (website) should be the main focus. She says, ‘social media apps like Instagram and Facebook come and go and they are just extensions where you share your work, your blog is your work’.

 

The blogger feels blessed to have a mature audience that understands the work she does. They also have the capability to appreciate her love for art based blog posts. She wishes to continue her blogging journey and give more time to her personal brand ‘Adagio’ in the future.

 

She advises our readers to not worry about trends or rules when it comes to fashion or style. If you like it, wear it – is her motto when it comes to blogging.

She also shares her tips for new bloggers or someone who’d like to start blogging. Number one, be original. She stresses newbies to have their own voice and to stand true to their vision. Last but not the least, blogging shall never be started because of perks or sheer excitement one has out of fancying a particular blogger’s style! ‘Because to be honest, the perks do not even suffice for the hard work you put in’, she says.
