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 .

True Beauty can not be put in words,
Pictures do no justice to them either,
It must be felt! 🤗🤗🤗

Blue skies and green leaves -
Naturally beautiful just like you!
Where social media feeds us with the latest launches and must-haves everyday, it sometimes becomes hard to remember what we are blessed with.
A reminder to myself first 🙂
This Ramadan let us take time to reflect on how blessed we are, and how grateful we need to be for having being blessed with so much from clean water to safe homes - the needs which a lot of people are not priveleged to. 🏡🏡🚿🚿💧💧🇶🇦🇶🇦

Look, ladies, there's going to be a bunch of people/memes/articles/sheikhs/etc telling you that you can't do it. That you should take it easy. That they get it, your kids are young, your body is weak, your kitchen is small and your family is big, your life is HARD, you simply cannot achieve your worship goals so don't even try, its okay, there, there, pat, pat.
I'm here to tell you the exact opposite. I'm here to tell you: Yes You Can. I'm here to tell you that yes your life is is tough but you are tougher. I'm here to remind you that you push yourself all year. I see it. I see your willpower. And your strength. Your stubborn refusal to give in to all the difficult, trying circumstances of your life.
You are a champion.
And champions don't give up right before the actual race starts!
All year, we build ourselves emotionally and physically for Ramadan. THIS is the main event. This is where you get to test the mettle for yourself where all year you've been testing it for others.
Ramadan is for YOU. So get up. Push yourself. Set lofty targets and work your behind off trying to reach them. The pleasure is in the reaching. In the striving. NOT in the achieving. The achieving and assessment of achieving, we leave it to Him. That's not our business. We just keep ourselves busy trying.Don't NOT try because some one (a man probably) thinks you don't have it in you.
You do.Words as picked up from Drama Mama

When hotels really go out of their way to make moments memorable - a pretty little spread on our bed when we checked into the room at @movenpickjbrComing soon on my blog - a review of this property!This is the age of experience, and when it comes to hospitality, companies that go out of their way to pay attention to small details and make your stay as memorable, those are the tales you will always want to share.
In my case @movenpickjbr was a star except for the fact that they addressed me as Mr. Khansa all the time or am not sure if they thought Mr. M's name was Khansa 😂😂 🌹🌹🌹🌹🌹🌹🌹🌹🌹🌹🌹🌹🌹🌹🌹
