Tips for Photographers:
1. The best time to go is in the evening.
2. A fast lens will be great, like a 50mm 1.8, else your 18-55mm lens.
3. Try to observe the action happening, then decide what to shoot.
4. It can get really crowded during the weekends, but thats when shooting is fun.
5. Ask for permission before you take people’s pictures. If they ask, please send them via whatsapp, they will be really happy.
6. Have fun!
