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? 😀 😛
World Photography Organisation Festival 2011 – London, sounds big doesn’t it? Of course it does, but you know what’s even bigger? I am attending it full time! Yaaayyy!!!
The festival is for a week from the 26th of April till 1st of May. I’m insanely excited about this, portfolio reviews, documentary photography workshop, networking, exhibitions, world class photographers, the awards, talks, seminars, other workshops, interviews, and London itself. I’m surely going to have fun.
To make it more exciting I’m meeting up with some of my old mates back from Pakistan. I’ll be spending some quality time with them as well.
This picture was shot last time I was in London, back in February. I love how the Reds in the sky and the motion blur helped to make this ordinary picture extraordinary.
Other than that, I’m ‘khush’ and I hope you’re ‘khush’ as well.
Alright I’m off…
I like to shoot in portrait more than in landscape.
Yes, this is my first confession on my blog. I don’t know for some reason I just tend to shoot in portrait orientation more than in landscape. So much so that sometimes I even do landscapes shots in portrait and end up liking the portrait landscape shot more than the landscape shot itself! I know it’s not the conventional way of photographing but sometimes I think you have to think out side the box and go and try those most imaginative photographic experiments, what do you think?
Now look at this landscape shot I captured in Scotland.
Mind you, it’s in portrait!
