A Confrontation With The King

Updated: Mar 21, 2023

It was the first field workshop of RAP Education with our beloved and one of the most aspiring photography learners Indrani Banerjee. Professionally Indrani is a higher secondary school teacher. She started her photography journey a few years back. However, she had to stop that due to the pandemic phase.

A few months back, Indrani joined our school to explore the further possibilities of nature and culture photography. After attaining our theory modules, she decided to go to the land of migratory birds in Purbasthali. We were very fortunate that we got what we wanted to capture. Indrani successfully captured some informative and alluring moments in her first field workshop.

Here we have selected a few images of an Osprey to share with the viewers. We also know this magnificent bird as a river hawk or fish hawk.

Besides this magnificent bird, Indrani captured some other common birds as well. Below you will see a male Red-crested pochard, the heart of awareness of Purbasthali.

This was not just the end. On that day, we also got the opportunity to witness some common but beautiful Kingfishers on the go. Indrani also captured an incredible moment where a White-throated Kingfisher tracked a frog to have a heavy lunch.

Some other moments of different kingfishers in portrait and landscape style.

We focus on theory and subject learning at the beginning of the course. The trainer of RAP Education believes photography is not a mere skill. It can't be learned through practice only. To become a meaningful and notable photographer, you must focus on various aspects of different subjects.

Join our one and only learning program, Understanding Photography to explore the significant facts of nature and culture photography. We provide both online and offline training. Follow the photographer (Indrani Banerjee) to see her future photography projects.
