It would be really amazing if you have prime lenses like 35mm and 50mm. These two lenses will give the idea of street scenes and portrait photography. If you don't want to get confused between two lenses, feel free to bring your 24-70 mm lens and it will do all your job.

  • I have been shooting with Shivam for 2 full days in Varanasi and 1 day in Amritsar.Our focus was on street photography at and around the ghats, some culture like morning sunlight ceremony, portraits of a sadhu on a boat on the Ganges, a boatman while rowing, portraits of locals as well as shooting bathers at Varanasi and Amritsar plus some architectural scenes.Shivam is such a phantastic photographer (check out his photos on instagram under shivam photopharm) and teacher.I enjoyed every moment with him and learnt such much on composition and training my eyes to identify photo worthy scenes.As he has been shooting with a Leica Q2 for years he could also give me advice on how to better use my own Leica.I can strongly recommend going shooting with him and plan to join one of his tours in Colcata in the future.
