Seize The Moment

Photographers use their cameras to make us see life in a different way, feel emotions and record stories and events. It can be known as art, science or practice of creating pictures. But for me it is a form of art like drawing and painting. It reminds me of people, places, feelings and stories.

 Photography is a way of feeling, of touching, of loving. What you have captured on film is captured forever… it remembers little things, long after you have forgotten everything.”
 - Aaron Siskind - 

Here I would like to tell you, that you should enjoy whatever you want to do in your life, without feeling any obligation to be good at it.
A few years ago I started to pursue some hobbies, not to excel at them but simply for the pleasure of doing them. I also have several other hobbies like painting that I’m not much good at. Honestly, I doubt anyone would pay for a creation of mine to hang on their wall, but just like photography, I’d capture the moment, go with the flow and paint anyway because it’s something I enjoy doing. Here are some of my creations.



We all need some inspiration from time to time. I get that inspiration from Travel Photography. For me it goes further than just capturing a great picture. It tells a story, educates and inspires. I think it brings the world to us and exposes what else is out there. Also it educates us about the customs of other cultures and shows how we differ from them. There are people who travel for the purpose of photography. But, I travel for the sake of travel and take photos to compliment my travels. Since the experience will vary slightly, it is a good idea to prioritize your intended scope before planning your trip. Also, we need to be constantly in touch with the new technology that is coming out. Thanks to the smart phones, photography has become a very easy task for anyone and everyone now. I mostly use a smart phone to take photos since I’m not a professional photographer.

Being in the right place at the right time and not missing that golden opportunity is important. If u want to be good at photography, that’s fantastic and there are plenty of resources for that. But remember that it’s a hobby and the only way you are doing it wrong is if you are not enjoying it
