Colosseum – Rome, Italy

I dont photograph monuments or architecture, i pick up the light on them and pour into my mould of composition. Every building i have visited has my photographic take on it. It maybe ordinary or a masterpiece, but it will surely be different.
Here is one of the great Colosseum in Rome, Italy.

Happy Viewing,

Vatican Museums – World Tourism Day

On World Tourism Day, i was lucky to be in Rome and visited Vatican Museums. Above, behind and around me were hand painted and sculpted walls.
Witnessing Michelangelo’s paintings at Sistine Chapel, specially The Creation of Adam, was surely a sight to remember.

Here are some glimpses for you from my visit. (All the photos/videos are made using a mobile phone in this blog and are unedited)

Happy viewing!

The Art of Taking A Perfect Selfie

These days everyone loves to be photographed but a lot of people travel solo, and it becomes difficult for them to take their own photos. As a professional photographer, here are a few tips for a perfect selfie!

1. Always face the light
2. Keep the camera slightly above the eye level to look sharp and sleek
3. In landscape versions always capture the negative space to the side you are looking at
4. Look at the camera and not at the screen
5. Always do the basic retouch on photos before posting like brightness, contrast and shadows

Happy clicking!

Kalash Girl

When i first started photography as a hobby in 2006 during my architecture school, my first travel destination was Kalash Valley KPK, Pakistan. I had an analog camera on which i was practicing variants of shutter speed and aperture values. This photograph was one of my first shots and i named it ‘Kalash Girl‘ (inspired by Steve McCurry’s Afghan Girl).

This was exposed on a film and then scanned to make a digital copy. The quality of this photograph might not be great but it’s close to my heart as it did kickstart an endless journey of passion and joy for me. From that day, i haven’t stopped or looked back. Still trying to learn and improve my skill of capturing ‘photo’, which we also know as ‘light’!
