FAQ’s about Photography

 

  1. When did you get into Photography?
    • I started photography when I bought myself a smartphone in 2013. I started with mobile photography using Nexus 4.
  2. Which gear do I use?
    • Canon 750d. And I only have the basic kit lens 18-55mm. Now saving for 50mm, 70-200mm, and a macro lens. I can buy these lenses in a month with the amount of money I earn, but let’s go with the excuse that I’m saving.
  3. Am I a professional photographer?
    • No, I’m a professional UI Developer, in case you need a website. On the other hand, my photography is purely a hobby for me. I don’t do photoshoots or try to earn money from it.
  4. Which apps I use to edit my pictures?
    • Okay, I get this question a lot. The thing is I have a very clear vision of what the end product should look like and to get that result I’ll use any amount of software. Anyway, my most used are Snapseed, PicsArt, VSCO, Pixlr, etc. If I had to choose only one software that would be Snapseed, obviously.
  5. Why I only take pictures of flowers and mostly nature?
    • Because flowers don’t tell me that they look fat in the picture and sunsets don’t ask me to take their pictures more candidly. I am the master here, hence nature and still life photography.
  6. Aint self-portraits just like selfies?
    • Umm well, you got to feed your narcissism every now and then.
  7. How to get an aesthetic feed?
    • Create a theme for your pictures. All aesthetic feeds have one thing in common, that is, colors. Educate yourself on the topic of color theory. A game like ‘I love hue’ may help. Always, remember post only those pictures that have the best quality.
  8. Any piece of advice for a beginner?
    • Your camera, lens, software doesn’t mean a thing if you don’t know how to compose a picture. To master the composition start practicing every day with your mobile camera.

My experience with friendship

 I was just lying in bed, imagining stuff which probably will never happen, when suddenly a random memory crossed my mind.
   I was in 10th standard and we had to attend a school camp. Ugh! So the biggest struggle at that time I had to deal with was to get a girl sitting next to me on the bus. It was a struggle because I didn’t have many friends back then as I was new in that school and also I couldn’t attend half of the year due to my leg surgery. And the few friends that I had, had decided to sit next to their best friends(I wasn’t anybody’s best friend). I asked every girl I knew to sit next to me, sadly, every one of them said no. Some girls really wanted to but they cared more about their “significant other bff’s”, they didn’t want to hurt them. Every damn girl on that bus was feeling sorry for me. I don’t need to tell you how angry, sad, humiliated, etc. I was.
   Fortunately, unlike my every other memory this has a happy ending. I was almost on the verge of crying when suddenly one of our teachers noticed me and called me to sit next to her and from there the trip just got better.
   I always had this type of friends, for them, their other friends came first and me at the end. No, I am not exaggerating or, nor do I am saying this to gain some sympathy. It’s something I have experienced, as they say, “actions speak louder than words”. It used to trouble me a lot before, especially when I was a lonely, little teenager. I won’t lie, occasionally, it still bothers me. But then life goes on, you meet other people, experience the good,  bad, and ugly; become more fierce and strong. You learn to be your own best friend and learn to not to rely on anyone but yourself. And you just know it, you’re gonna be alright, no matter who comes or goes.
   Oh! And let me add that I still remember each and every girl on that bus who rejected me. Guess what women? I’m so cool now that I have my own blog and maybe nobody reads it, anyway, I’m cool now, at least on the internet. Ha! Suck on that losers. Just kidding you know, or maybe not.

Am I a photographer?

 

I feel kinda plagiarist whenever someone calls me a photographer or appreciates my photography skills.

   On the other hand, whenever someone calls me an artist or appreciates my art, I feel proud and happy, because I literally created that shit with my own hands! So it makes me feel like I’m entitled to that appreciation.

But it’s different with photography. It’s like I didn’t do anything. There is all kind of beauty around us and I just happen to notice it. Let’s say, I’m at the right place at the right time and I seize the moment. I, in no way, made those flowers and sunsets beautiful. They already were and are!

I only know how to use an equipment to capture pictures and several other software to bring that beauty out to the world.

So, I don’t know, this is that what being a photographer is like?

Hello world

Hello, world!

So, I’m here because lots of people on Instagram loved the little excerpts that I wrote and also encouraged me to start a blog. I am really thankful for those people, because of them I am writing my first blog post.

My blog would mostly consist of my average everyday experiences, my basic love life and my mediocre expertise related to things that nobody cares about. I might also write about the mental health issue, because, let’s face it, everybody is crazy these days.

Let’s start with a brief introduction about me- for a living, I work as a Front-end Developer. As being a programmer with little or no life at all, I spend a great amount of time on the internet, consuming pop culture and memes, living on Tv series and movies, dreaming about traveling the world, just like every other IT guy/gal does. I also have several hobbies like reading, writing, painting, etc.

Now, if you think that I am just another nerdy, introverted, girl next door who likes reading, and writing and has opinions about every damn thing, then you are absolutely right. That’s exactly what I am.

If you’re still reading this and you do find me interesting.. you do? Well, then I might write one more blog post soon.
