Photographing The Ship of the Desert

(Morning Trip - Friday, 17th November 2017)

The trip includes photographing the camels with their riders as the November sun rises with its various hues of orange red and yellow! This will be followed by a visit to the camel races/training sessions.

The Chapter Organiser coordinates the trip and explains the various nuances of photographing this most interesting subject, which is iconic in this region. The early morning shots may require tripods as well as both wide angle and tele lenses. You have a great opportunity to experiment and innovate. The following images will inspire you to get up early morning for a tryst with the rising sun!


Ensure that you do not use any perfume/strong body spray as this antagonizes the camels! Also avoid white T shirts or very bright colored dress!
