After breakfast we left for a photoshoot at Thiksey. We went to the house of Jigmet Angdu that had still the real old kitchen as it was used till 40 years back. The new kitchen was up for renovation after 40 years. Nice to see that even in the new kitchen still a lot was done on the ground (not shown here), this although the it had a large working area also next to the sink.
For experienced women it takes only 10 to 15 minutes to get dressed in the traditional dress, whereas it can take hours for the young ones it seems. For us it was however the challenge to find the right angle and position for the shoots. Dark room with light coming in through two windows. This gave very nice contrasts. For this it was good that there were only 6 shooting as 12 would have been quite a challenge, not only for us but also for the models.
Tsering Youton is one of the top spinners and showed us also some of her spinning skills.
Got to bed early as the days would take enough energy.
