Learn a new skill – Photography, a bucketlist checked by Richa Moitra

Nostalgic of her bus rides from school as an eighth standard school-er, she explains how staring outside the window let her to imagine how a camera could be used to capture that moment. “That is when the seed of photography was planted in my head,” she laughs. That was her bucket list moment.

Photography street fish street

She was preparing for admissions to a business school when a word from her room-mate changed everything. She decided to persistently pursue her bucket list item of learning and mastering the skill of photography and hasn’t looked back since.

“In a town that had quite not taken up to photography as a career choice, leaving my books aside and heading out to see the world through my lens was quite difficult,” she says. With the sole purpose of pursuing photography and with no assistance or a mentor to guide her, YouTube and a passion was all she had got.

She started traveling all around the state on her scooter with nothing else but a camera and an eye for subjects, visiting and capturing all the places she had on her list. She hopes to complete an entire solo photographic tour of India. “A bucket list sounds so simple but it teaches you a lot about how to not quit on your dreams just because it’s difficult and actually lets you identify an organized way to do it,” she says. She has a Facebook page, “Through her eyes,” where she shares her work and encourages women photographers to share their work as well.

Her bucket list now, has a final item to put a tick-mark against, the New York Institute of Photography. “Don’t be afraid to do something just because someone hasn’t done it already,” she advises to all the women out there. She wants to become an independent cinematographer and direct an entire film by herself.
