What a fellow Photographer/Blogger thinks and expresses about Photography!
How an ordinary man can become a gentleman just because of his way of dressing? How food can be tastier if it is garnished? There isn’t any difference in any of these things. All are still same but your perception has changed!
Photography is basically what “you” perceive from anything whether it is a book,chair or even a needle. You can perceive it in any way you want. A chair is an object to sit on; Some may see it as a helping material! And some who have some memories with it will perceive it their unique way.
When I was asked the reason why I persuaded photography as a hobby. I always answered “Because I want to do something that shows ME”. There is a magic in photography which draws me into it. I know I can’t write well. I know I can’t speak well! It is the way…

Yeah, it’s been ages and now I have come up with something…
here it is, please don’t laugh 😛
My Artist Statement and My Logo!!!
Hi, I’m M B A Khan and I’m an addict, because photography is so addictive!
Always on the edge for opportunities to inspire and be inspired by life and I do it by capturing and savouring those captivating moments. Making pictures that talk. My style is bold – Colours that pop and scream at the viewer. My photography has this surreal touch to it, because “if it’s life-like then what’s that point of photography?” Just like Alfred Stieglitz said and I quote, “In Photography there is a reality so subtle that it becomes more real than reality.” I make pictures that are sometimes unimaginable at first, until I experiment and discover something that can take the viewer beyond imagination. And I do all this with a camera and a lens in front of it.
Photography to me, is not just reflection of reality but also the idea behind it, it’s not as simple as expressions of emotions but also the stories behind them, it’s not mere imagination but how you portray it, and photography is not only a concept but the understanding and implementation of it.
I’m always learning since I’ve found out about my love for photography. You learn with each click that you do. I’m always in the process of evolution in regards to my style of photography. “The way I see things is different, different in colour, shape, taste, value, age and philosophy of it, and this is the creative difference I want others to see in my art.”
Creativity in photography is just another name for experimenting, the more you experiment the more creative you become.
So yeah, I already have a portfolio of such creations, hope you’ll like it…
So? What do you think? 😀 😛
Innit??? Yeah, I know… 🙂 Thank you 😛

The Euro Trip – 113 Update
Blogging from my phone whilst on the way to Zürich, Switzerland feels like real-time blogging i.e. if there is something called Real Time Blogging…
So far we’ve visited Amsterdam, Koln and Frankfurt. Last Night we stayed at a hotel in Stuttgart and I personally liked the service pretty much!
I’ve been taking hundreds of pictures. Most of the pictures are documenting the trip others are portraits and group pictures…
Right I’m off now…
Yes, Today I will be doing my first ever professional photo shoot – A friend’s Wedding Reception. I’m all excited and nervous at the same time because obviously this is the first time I’m doing something like this.
All night I was thinking about the compositions, people, style, technique and what not, but I know when it comes down to action the best shots are just those decisive moments that cannot be predicted or planned. I mean I’m just going to take it easy but also my approach will be comprehensive(I don’t want to miss anything, do I?), the way I normally shoot, I’m just going to stay simply original.
I have done all my homework for the photo shoot, all gear checked, lenses cleaned, cards, batteries, flash, backpack, all sorted! I’m doing this for my experience, and I thank so much for my friend to give me a chance. I’m sure it’s going to be a major confidence boaster and a big step forward in my photography career. I hope everything goes smooth and just perfect, finger’s crossed…!!!
I so wanted to take my friend with me, but he’s stuck somewhere and I’ll have to do it all on my own, which is not going to be a problem, but you know having a friend next to you always helps.
Other than that, we were out shopping even yesterday, whole day, for the euro trip… That is another big thing happening in my life this year. Alhumdulillah… 🙂
and last but not the least, I’ve made a new fan! So thank you so much my new fan, you’re the best fan 😛
