Vasuki Chandak (New Delhi) – Scintillating Sri Lanka (October 2015)


Vasuki Sri Lanka Testimonials

I have seen myself grow in these 10 days more than I have in the last few months- and not just as a photographer. The itinerary was exciting but the expedition outdid what each of us could expect. Jassi Sir’s smallest tweaks and suggestions went a long way in improving our skills. His dedication towards the growth of his students is sacred. There were days when we were up before sunrise and lived through entire action packed days and yet he was willing to lend his expert guidance – often till midnight hours. The trip allowed us to discover that photography wasn’t just about getting the right shots- but also about experiencing the stories behind them… and they can not be shared.. they can only be lived.

Xploring Light has always been my preference for learning photography from a long time. My first tour with Xploring Light was to St Petersburg in 2012, then to Leh Ladhak in 2013 & now to Sri Lanka in Oct 2015. Starting from scratch to whatever I can click now is the result of support & practical training by Mr Jassi and his group. Sri Lanka was truly an experience of its own kind as for your camera you find almost everything there. Starting from clean blue water beaches, beautiful sunsets, Jungle safaris,, hill stations with breath taking view of landscapes, tea gardens with amazing light shades, the heritage sights more than 2000yrs old and mouth watering food delicacies. Curd with honey my favourite dessert & Lion beer all time favourite.

This is my fourth photography trip with XploringLight since Feb’14 which in itself is a stamp on their credentials. In fact, it took me some time to assimilate my words because I feel so much part of this group that anything good that I vocalise sounds like nepotism. Despite travelling alone i have never enquired about my room partner or other mates in the group,now I know within minutes a bond is formed. There are photography enthusiasts in different stages of learning and everyone is very patiently guided by Jassi. Its always a complete journey of photography for me where I revise my basics and also load my brain database with knowledge which is a little advanced for me at present but may be handy later.

In Srilanka in a short span of 8 days incredibly diverse bends were touched from historical world heritage sites to hill country to unspoilt beaches to national park to local theater. After a while the vehicle coursing our crew almost seemed like a caravan with all suitable comforts. Accommodations were all world class ranging from picturesque resorts to cosy apartment feel of hotels where at the end of the day dinner menu was vetoed by us amidst detailed reviews of whatever we had clicked that day. The itinerary was extremely streamlined but whenever the Lanka weather played awry, with a group conscience changes were amicably made to utilise the remnant hours.

We ate and lived like locals – sometimes tucking into authentic roadside spicy rice-curry and kotthu or enjoying fresh seafood from an oceanfront restaurant table or tasting indigenous fruits or browsing tea in tea lounges.

Thank you XploringLight and Nomadic Pursuits – together you are 1+1=11.

And if you are fishing for more compliments then I must reveal I have saved some for the next testimonial – yeah I plan to travel more often with this wonderful group.
