Hello Kolkata, First of all we would like to extend our heartfelt gratitude for such an overwhelming experience during DSLR’s Kolkata 2018 Photowalk. Thank you for coming in such huge numbers and making this event a memorable and successful one. My dear friends and fellow mentors Abbas Baig (Delhi) and Sourav Pal (Kolkata) were instrumental in making this Photowalk meaningful for you all. I would also like to Highlight the extraordinary efforts of our Guest Mentors: Joydeep Dada, Avishek, Rajib Dada & Susomay.
This was my second visit to Kolkata and first as a Photographer. We gathered at the Ahiri Tola, Launch Ghat on a beautiful Sunday Morning (May 6th 2018) at 6.30 am, started with an introduction of All Mentors, Guests and Sponsors, and briefed everyone on the agenda of the Photowalk. We then Felicitated our guests with a memento.
We started the walk from the Ahiri Tola to the Bylanes of Kumar Toli, and gathered back at the Ghat after walking for an hour and a half. I was really moved by the sheer enthusiasm of the participants who gathered from the far and wide locations. It was hot and humid but had no effect on our motivated and passionate participants. After finishing the walk we distributed a participation certification to all the attendees. We had a Q&A round followed by a Lens Demo from our sponsor Sigma.
After giving out the competition details we closed the event and bid farewell to each other.
Overall it was an extraordinary experience meeting you all at the Photowalk.
