Traveling is pleasure for me personally. I’m guessing being an chance to understand and observe, specifically the character. I usually think about these 3 things within my Travels.
1. Respect the Culture you’re driving.
When you are to understand the culture of the spot where you are driving, whether it is the Shrine of Shah Abdul Latif Bhitai in Sindh or even the Valley of Kalash in Northern Regions of Pakistan, you’ll be at ease with the sorroundings. You need to find out about their culture. Learn couple of phrases of the language. Learn about their dress and do not put on the cloths that might are actually offensive on their behalf.
With regards to culture, this means their values and traditions. Request the permission before you take photograph of individuals, particularly the ladies and the seniors. If they don’t allow, Don’t take the image. It’s not hard to go ahead and take picture and try to escape however that will be unprofessional and you won’t be capable of making a lengthy term relationship. It’s my job to wear Shalwar Kameez within my travels towards the interior sides of Pakistan particularly in North West Frontier Province. It seamless comfort and comfy.
2. Communication is paramount.
Because you have learnt couple of phrases in the language, it shows that you’re really part of their loved ones. Speak with them. Don’t take picture at the same time. Hold off. Visit Bazaars. Go to the market, have couple of conversations using the locals. Introduce yourself. And Shoot following day. They’ll now know who really is wandering around. I remained in Kalash Valley in May 2009, and learnt phrases in the Kalasha Language. I did previously greet them every single day with “Ishpata” that is a greeting within their language. They loved me taking photographs. I did not shoot at the beginning day. I spoken for them and visited their properties. After which shot whole next a couple of days. It is all about taking your subjects like a Family.
