Aspiring Photographer | Saleha Jamil

Saleha Jamil is an aspiring photographer from Qatar. We love discovering passionate people with hints of talent here on Creativity with Kay always. Here’s what Saleha tells us about herself and photography. Read on to find out more…

Kdeeja: How do you think one becomes a Photographer?
Saleha: Professional photography is an interesting career choice and one that is suitable for people who are attracted to the idea of making a living by using their creative talents. The profession requires a blend of technical expertise and creativity, and it certainly helps to possess a healthy dose of imagination, creativity, patience, and self-discipline, as well as a good business mind.


Kdeeja: What sorts of steps did you take to learn photography?

Saleha: I actually learnt from internet , asked questions from several amazing photographers on flickr, some photography magazines . I am still learning will be attending workshops in near future
Kdeeja: What is your biggest inspiration?
Saleha: What inspires me is looking at everything in my surroundings, knowing it all changes in an instant and wanting to preserve some of it. I’ve always looked at photography as not so much capturing images but preserving moments in time. We live in a world in which people tend to think only of the here and now.

Kdeeja: When did you know you finally “made it” as a professional?
Saleha: I’m getting into it professionally as a wedding photographer , I did a bridal shoot. Soon insha Allah i’ll start covering weddings.
Kdeeja: What does photography mean to you?
Saleha: Life is better when we have a purpose, something interesting to look forward to at the weekend. Photography gives me that sense of purpose. Photography also gives me creative fulfilment. It helps me express myself artistically, and that’s a wonderful thing.
Kdeeja: What is the influence of digital technology on your photography?
Saleha: I use a lot of digital technology- from my digital SLR to my post processing softwares. In fact, post processing has slowly turned into one of my better skills

Kdeeja: How important is it for a photographer to “connect” with his subjects to bring out their true self?
Saleha: It depends on the photograph you are doing , conceptual photographers tend to need it more. Because its similar to writing poetry… When you will look at the photograph , you will instantly feel the emotions hidden in it..
Kdeeja:How much planning do you do for each shoot, and how much happens naturally?
Saleha: I rarely plan for any shoot , most of them happen naturally . For a conceptual shoot I tend to do more planning .
Kdeeja: Do you have any photography advice to give upcoming photography enthusiasts from your storied career?
Saleha: As I am still in a learning process I would suggest , don’t buy the expensive gear right away , experiment and learn basics with your point and shoot or go for the inexpensive DSLR because its you who takes nice pictures not the camera . Go manual on your settings , learn the basic rules, the settings. Don’t be afraid to experiment , look at other people’s work get inspired . Take pictures regularly , look at your surroundings and capture them with a unique way. Watch Youtube tutorials , or learn from free lessons given on websites .

Yes, I went hiking up in my abaya, and whined that I couldn't make it up in time for the sunset, and couldn't make it up anyways.
I questioned posting this several times because my @skechers looked dirty
But then again, what is hiking without all that mess that gets on you? Its messy but this view is all you tend to remember in the end. The Beauty of Travel 💗 .

Nothing in life comes easy. Happiness comes from within. Everyone has their own opinion on what success is.
It is upto you to decide and work for the success you believe in honestly, and kindly. I always believe in the fact that if you put your heart and soul in paving your way, pulling up as many people as you can along the way, you will find yourself in a place you are content with, and surrounded by the right people.
It will happen but it will take time.

They told me " I didnt have to wear the veil there. My husband wasn't around." I listened. I smiled. I didnt say anything back.
Little did they know that my husband had nothing to do with my veil.
It was my choice and I Didn't do it for him. What if my husband wasn't there?My religion to me is submission to God. He is all-seeing, all-hearing!I hear a lot of assumptions often and here's what I feel about it. Unless you are in their shoes, and you know every detail of their life, You dont have the right to assume. And, even if you do, please keep it to yourself, so that people are less hurt because of the assumptions you make.
Being fashionably nice is not in looks alone, it is in trying to hurt  as less possible around you with your words. Words once spoken that you cant take back!
Your choice of words are everything! It determines your style, class and elegance more than anything

Its easy to forget the beautiful memories we have like a beautiful sunrise.
Social Media makes it easy to whine and complain about things we dont have.
Perhaps if we remind ourselves more of the beautiful memories we have everyday, its going to be easier to be content with everything we have and get to experience in our life everyday!

The wind was strong, the water wild, but there was peace as we watched the sun go down.
Peace that only nature could provide with.
And, it was the most relaxing scene to watch.
A beautiful experience for me.
