Let’s face it, capturing photographs that represent a historical era is a challenge. Not only would you need to stay true to the styling, makeup & hair, but also to the aesthetics, props, colours, tones & overall photographic mood.
With our talented Fashion Stylist handling the wardrobe styling, and our Makeup Artist’s team handling the makeup & hair, it was my task to focus on the other remaining elements, mainly location, scenarios & lighting. This shoot revolves around t
It's almost been 4 years since the release of the first Full frame mirrorless cameras. Sony has since implemented itself as a leading camera & sensor manufacturer with their cutting edge technology and no compromise policy on their cameras' feature set. Yet still, lots of debate rages on within the photography scene whether those mirrorless cameras can or should be considered pro cameras & whether they meet the demands of professional photography ... with some seeing them as
Adobe Photoshop & the power of camera RAW have brought about possibilities that never existed before. In the days of old, you were limited to what you can achieve with retouch / photo enhancement. But now, with powerful tools existing within Photoshop, it is all made available; nothing is impossible as long as you possess enough knowledge & are willing to put in a decent amount of effort into post processing. Now what I'm about to share today is not something I'd recommend, n
There was one concept I had been planning to shoot, the only thing holding me back was that I didn't possess the right resources to execute. I wished to create a towering character, one standing high & proud on ground. I already had an idea of how to achieve this effect, however I was still looking for a long gown, with fabric that stretches beyond the feet. I also needed a location that adds more depth & interest to the image. A disussion with my preferred model bore fruit;
Capturing compelling & strong images doesn't come easy; it requires planning, education, experimentation & sometimes going out of your way to achieve what you envision. When I captured this following image, I was residing in Jazirat al Hamra - RAK. There was this patch of long wild grass that was growing a short walk from my building entrance. It had caught my attention, and I knew it was a matter of time before I came up with a concept that works for the location. At a shopp
When you get inspired, and you find yourself in the drive gear, you better hit that gas & go with the flow. I was experimenting with different ideas, themes, moods ... however, there was always one question on my mind: "What is my subject going to wear for this shoot???"
Unfortunately, I reside in a city which doesn't provide creative folks many options when it comes to outfits & props; you want something, you gotta shell out some money. Yep, hardly anything comes cheap her
To say I created a shockwave among my photography friends here in Dubai would be an understatement! It didn't make sense then, even now some find it hard to believe that an avid photography enthusiast such as myself would let go of one of the higher-end Canon cameras in favor of a new compact untested mirrorless Sony. Indeed, it was a risk, and one I proudly admit. I had been a Sony fan ever since my first Playstation console, and even though I didn't base my decision to swit
As many have done before myself, and as many would follow, I embarked on a journey nurtured by passion; passion towards capturing beauty & etching down those special moments that never return. I welcome you to join me on this journey which started no more than 3 years back when I bought my first DSLR: I was at the mall with my cousin (who happens to be a photography enthusiast), I’ve already made my intentions of purchasing a DSLR clear to him. Though, for some reason, I was
