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 .

J A I P U R 💟I wondered why this city was known as the Pink City. It is not exactly the pink that we tend to normally imagine. The city has got this brownish reddish hue all over as seen on this shot of the Hawa Mahal.
It is said that because every shop in the market is so similar, you are supposed to remember the place by shop number else you do really get lost.
How beautiful is Hawa Mahal though? .
