Photo Tours are an interesting and productive way of exploring any city. These photography tours can be either done by themselves or combined a number of other activities including city walks, visits to monuments, food walks and various other fun activities. Although having a decent camera is one of the major prerequisites of enjoying such a tour, proliferation of cell phones with good quality inbuilt cameras has made the process quite easy. Most mid to high end phones have a fairly good cameras which take fairly good pictures. Of course, the picture quality is not as good as that of original cameras or DSLRs, but for normal folks who don’t want to carry bulky cameras with them, they do the job just fine. All photography tours are led by an expert professional or amaeture photographers who can explain the finer points of using a camera as well as where to use it. Both points are equally important for getting that perfect shot. A lot of people depend on picture enhancing software like Photoshop, GIMP etc. to enhance the beauty of their photographs, but learning to use a camera eliminates the need of any enhancement to a large extent.
Thus these photography tours serve two purposes, one to teach basic or advanced aspects of taking pictures in a short time as well as letting the people do so while enjoying the sights, food, culture of the place. There are quite a few photography tours in operation in India which offer good services.
