Innit??? Yeah, I know… 🙂 Thank you 😛
One of the first photos from the Euro Trip by M B A Khan. There are so many more to come! — This one is with Firas Mazloom, Hassaan Ahmed, Furqan Warsi and Fahàd Azmi just by the Eiffel Tower in Paris, France.
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 😛

Here I come again with all the excuses in the world for not writing and not doing anything worth my time(at least in my opinion). Anyway, yes I’ve been away for donkey’s years, at least it feels like it when I look at my last blog post which was 21st of April 2011.
Well quite a few things happened since then, I went to that Photography Festival that I was on about, had fun over there, learned quite a few things, experienced what it feels like when you stand/sit with some of the top photographers in the world. Sony was quite big over there as they were the main organisers and what more can a Sony fanatic ask for than representing the brand itself at the WPO Festival. I attended this London Documentary Project with about 60 other photographers and one of my picture’s got selected for the exhibition as well. Other than that there were quite a few things going on during that week (26th of April – 1st of May). Yes it was the week of the Royal Wedding and I was there documenting it through my lens. Here I should also admit that for the ‘brits’ Royal Wedding was something astounding. They gathered at St. James Park, Trafalgar Square, and Westminster Abbey, I mean all over the Central London there were millions of people celebrating the wedding ceremony of their beloved Princess Diana’s Son William and Kate. Now I know it’s old news for the world but I’m just writing it down for the sake of record.
Just as I came back to Bradford, I had so many things planned but I don’t know, or maybe I do know but I don’t want to accept that I know, I just went into this ‘leave me alone’/’don’t talk to me’ mode… and whenever this happens I tend to stick to only a couple of buddies and sometimes not even them it’s only me acting like some loner who has nobody left in the world to take care of. Also I stop doing all the productive things that I sometimes do, so yeah it’s pretty much the time for me to go into some rehab or something.
Gradually I recovered and now that I’m writing over here it means I’m reawakened and I’ve become serious about things again. Things like my life, my deen(religion), my career, my aims, my relationships, my dealings, my photography, my blog, my bank, my family, my friends, and even my enemies, basically all of my stuff…. 🙂 Getting serious over here means, to an extent, acknowledging the existence of these ‘things’. Now what plans and how I will go about these plans are completely different ‘things’. Allah knows/plans best!
Oh, Almost forgot, Ramadan Mubarak Everyone, yeah Ramadan started on the 1st of August here in the UK, back home it was 2nd of August. Now that Ramadan is here, it’s always been a great imaan charger for me! And this is exactly what I’m trying to do this Ramadan to get the bar as high up as I can. I wish and pray that everyone gets to benefit from this ‘holy month’ as it is always a great opportunity for the Muslims.
I know I should have made separate blog posts for all of these different topics but never mind, at least I’m back to life! Again!
