Assalam o Alikum,
Belated Eid Mubarak everyone. Eid was good this year, as in, it was the same but I felt a little different… 😉 😛
A little update on what I’ve been up to lately…
All through out Ramadan I focused on keeping myself away from all the ‘laghwiyaat’ by reading the Quran, being punctual with Salat and building up my Imaan. Other than that I was doing these online short tutorials on Lighting and Colour and some Photoshop tutorials. Designing my website and sorting portfolio images were two other things which kept me busy; YES, I’M ABOUT TO LAUNCH MY PORTFOLIO WEBSITE. Really, I should have done it long time ago, but this is me… I take my time with things… and yeah it will be soon up and running.
I’ve also been watching this photography program – [Framed] Show, it’s available on YouTube if anyone of you is interested. It’s just amazing, they interview these professional photographers around the world and trust me you learn a lot! They also have a very active community on Facebook and a huge fan following. So yeah, do check it out.
That’s about it, I think…
Yeah, no matter what you’re going through when Eid comes it cheers you up in so many ways… 😀 This is not one of the best Eids that I have celebrated but it definitely is a cheerful one. I am not with all my family but I’ve got my brother and 2 of my cousins with me here in Bradford, which I think is good enough for now. My family is back in Pakistan and this is my 5th or 6th Eid without them, so I can say I’ve gotten used to it now, but I think soon things are going to change as I’m planning to go back to Pakistan.
Anyway, back to Eid yeah we had some good time chilling with my house mates, Kaleji (liver) was served as Breakfast with some Sheer Khorma (Sweet Dish) to go after it. Everyone was nicely dressed up and everyone was looking good. I, like always, spent most of the time with the camera. Photographing these moments that I know I will inshAllah cherish in the years to come.
So yeah, this was it, and one more thing, EID MUBARAK everyone!
I’ll write some more about Eid soon…
