The three weeks of lockdown has had everyone pick up new skills. Photography has been rated one of the top classes that has been chosen by people in isolation. Not only is it a good skill to acquire, but can also add to everyone’s resume. Brands like Nikon have offered free photography classes for their followers. The photography influencers have also been seeing a spike in their followers in the past couple of weeks. If you are out there wondering whom to follow, here is a great list of photographers that are knocking the social media game out of the park.

At the peak of his powers . Scarface firmly holding on to his territory in the backwaters that he has ruled for a decade now.

Today I turn 31. I never thought I'd be living through a global pandemic during my lifetime, let alone be celebrating my birthday in a nationwide lockdown on foreign soil. But this is the hand that we were all dealt – so here's to finding peace, power, and maybe even a measure of pleasure in uncertain times ✨

Siddhartha is known for his incredible photography skills during his various travels. The celebrity photgrapher has also been featured on Discovery, NDTV, and platforms like CNN, TOI, etc.
Last year one of the most memorable trips was the time I spent in the #Sekhawati region of #Rajasthan. And today that region is a #COVID19 containment zone. . There was so much I saw and have so many stories to share, but perhaps there’ll never be an appropriate time to tell those. Maybe someday I’ll pen them down in my notebook, and maybe one day after I die someone will discover those…hmmm… . No, I am not missing travel. Not at all. I am happy to be home because that’s the only way to keep this world safe. But I do sometimes think of missed stories that I should’ve written long ago when they were still relevant. Or maybe I should still pen them down before they are completely forgotten…

This photography and travel influencer has been very vocal about how COVID19 has influenced her everyday posts.
What a crazy time to be alive! Travelling in Chhattisgarh just 3 weeks ago, I would’ve laughed if someone said we’d be in a 21 day lockdown today. And yet, it seems like our best bet right now. I was supposed to spend more time in Chhattisgarh, then trek through the forests and tribal villages to Madhya Pradesh where I’d deliver a workshop on sustainable tourism marketing. But the workshop got cancelled, it rained on the trek, the news became increasingly alarming, and I decided to visit my parents in Dehradun before figuring out what would be next. Now I’m still in Dehradun. Probably the longest I’ll spend in the house I grew up, since I moved out at age 17. For the first few days, I drove myself mad thinking of all the places I could’ve been. I had planned to stay in India till end of March, to speak at the Economic Times Women’s Forum. And sticking to my vow to fly less, didn’t want to take a flight anywhere for less than 3 months. The forum got postponed of course. And it was too late to head off to the Caucasus or Sri Lanka or somewhere further away like Guatemala. But then borders shut and countries evicted travellers who weren’t residents. Stories of flights being grounded, evacuations and mandatory quarantines surfaced. Then domestic trains and flights shut. State borders closed. And now we’re in lockdown. I now find myself filling with gratitude that I’m in Dehradun. Spending this unexpected time with my folks. A garden office, access to a kitchen, a vulture on the eucalyptus tree nearby! In a strange reversal of roles, I’m the one questioning everyone trying to step out of the house and denying permission 😉 What a crazy time to be alive, hey? What’s your crazy corona story? Where are you hiding out and what are you grateful for?

a). Zurich at night is a VIBE ✨ b). Nothing makes me happier than Bokeh and Grain combined. . Oh and these pictures were too artsy for me to not jump on the yellow subtitles' bandwagon 🙊 Words are from a Jane Hirshfield poem I stumbled upon a while ago, titled Lure. . 📷 @patheight
