Me Myself & My Camera

Why I haven’t thought?  One of the main reason for this blog…How did I miss writing about this topic…


A little bit of history…

Photography was actually found in England by Thomas Wedgwood around 1800. He is the one wrote the theory of the dark room and the exposure of the subject to the light. But, only Nicéphore Niépce officially developed the concept of photography and invented; the world’s oldest surviving photographic process product in 1825: the heliography. And it was commercialized in 1839, which is the official date of the birth of photography worldwide.

Me & My Camera

 Now that recall in my life I have always been carrying a camera with me; school, house parties, outing, dinners. I was the cameraman, oh maybe the camerawoman, well actually the photographer. Recently, I went through my old stuff and I have found cameras and video recorder from different generation lasting more than a decade. From the film rolls to the latest DSLR: I had them all.

Fast forward to 2017! I was into photography and editing since 2008 and I would edit any kind of photos on photoshop (obviously, self-taught) and I love everything about it. I try to take as much as photos as I can ( including selfies ). Likewise, I am learning new stuff every day and I will not stop. As I mentioned in my previous post “Throwback 2016” I wanted to something I always liked it: writing and photography.  It was very hard to come out of my comfort zone and make my dreams come true. It is not easy for a girl who had zero self-confidence and who was struggling financially. But I didn’t want to spend the rest of my life sad.  Here I am now; doing what I like and what makes me happy.

In the future…

I am not really interested in birthdays parties or weddings but I want to be part of business affairs and events and even organizing them. My main idea is to incorporate my photography “skills” into business tactics. I don’t just want to be only the “so called” photographer but also able to help small businesses to promote their products and their vision through my photography. I want to be part of their successful business events and cherish every moment of it through my lens. Moreover, I want my photographies to speak for myself.

Throwback 2016


Throwback 2016

Throwbacks

                 Most of the time, I celebrate New Years at church with my family. Starting the Year with laughter and lot of food, of course, I would sleep till noon and eat all day. My mom used to tell me the way we start the year will be the same throughout that year. as far as I can remember she was right, that’s what I end up doing the whole year: eating and sleeping.

What I have achieved in 2016!

I can recall few things that I am proud of myself. In fact, I finished my studies in July while working full time (40h/week). I decided to work on my long lost passion: Photography and I also discovered a new passion for writing. It made me realize that I was capable of doing something if I was really willing to do it. Somehow, I got the chance to do few photo shoot.  I Likewise,  I went back to Sri Lanka: one of the craziest trips so far. You can read about my trip: One country! two months! Twenty-five cities!  Moreover, I even started to write small fictive stories and I love it. My ever first story is: THE PROPOSAL 

” One can not achieve anything if did not start work for it”

 I loved writing about the diverse subject at school and I was somehow good at it even though English is my third language.  I wanted to do something that made me happy.  But I was confused; how to start and where to start. I liked the idea of starting my own blog since I was already writing one from one of my classes with my classmates, but  I was scared if I would find audiences for my blog; you had to be popular to get followers and readers. On the other hand, I didn’t know what to write about, so  I went through some popular blogs to get ideas and it was all about stuff they liked, but what do I like? That was my question!  YES! OF COURSE! PHOTOGRAPHY ! So I decided to combine writing and photography together and eventually started my blog.

Happy or not!

There are few things that I wish that happened differently, but everything has its own timing and everything happens for a reason. However, I am not complaining because I had the chance to learn and focus on something that I love and enjoy doing.  I am pretty happy with what I have done in 2016. I hope the best in the years to come.  My aim is to open my own photo studio in the future and I am working on that dream slowly but surely.

What I learned in 2016

EVERYTHING IS POSSIBLE WHEN YOU ARE WILLING TO DO IT !

Thank you for all your love and support.I hope you enjoyed reading my blog throughout 2016 and I look forward to have a best year ahead

CARS AND ME

photography

             How many girls are really passionate about cars? How many of them really enjoys driving and rides. What do they know actually?  I am not an encyclopedia of cars, but I JUST LOVE CARS.  Usually, boys are the one who plays the most with cars when they were kids. And when they grow up, they spend all their money on their dream car.  On the other hand, girls are subjected to play with dolls in their childhood, and when they grow up, they are focused on studies, career and founding a family.

             Apart from founding a family and achieving in my career, I have found a special love for cars. Weird at is it, but yes. I love cars. As I mentioned in my previous post, I grew up playing with cars from the age of 9. And, when I was 12, I had the chance to play racing video games, and that was it. It was all about cars. Moreover, I love driving. I am not hesitated to drive miles. Long trips are not even an issue for me. I just enjoy the ride, whether on the driver’s seat or passenger’s.  I know many people, who don’t like long rides and they easily get bored throughout their long trips. But, I enjoy everything about the trips; the conversations, the views, the stops. likewise, I make sure that whoever comes with me on trips are strictly entertained, as I keep the conversation going on.
