My impressions on this class

erlrlk

In this class we managed to learn a lot of useful stuff. It is a great course where I found myself doing and learning a new thing daily. Photoshop is one of the best programs that I learned taking this course. It is one of the best photo editing programs out there. Learning such a program is very beneficial for me. Also, more importantly I am now able to use a camera properly thanks to this class. There are other programs that I also learned taking this class such as imovie, which is an app from Apple that allows you to edit videos. In addition, I believe that one of the main things I learned in this class is writing a resume which is great for seeking a job in the future. Most of my impressions are positive in taking this class, the only down side is that it needed a lot of time to finish most of the work, since I am a college student I was able to manage my time to be a successful student

After interviewing Mr Nasser ALMukhaizeem we edit the audio file by adding all the other natural sound effects Using Audacity Application. And then we edit some photos that we took during the interview Using PS Application. At the end we use the SoundSlide Application that was able to combine the audio file with natural sound effects  with the photos  linked into a video .It made it look like a movie all together

Komar day off

My photo story today is about komar our house driver day off. He has a one day off in the week that he can do whatever he wants to do . So, this weekend he decided to go to AlMurgab market to buy some goods and he transfer  some money to his family back home. After that , he met some of his friends and he had to chat with them. it looks like  they are close friends , they took some pictures together . Then, he want to the church to see the priest pray to god.

My story is simply talking that housemaid and workers need to have a some time to them selves and it is the humanities thing that we can do for them

 

As a human being , small things can be important to us and means alot in our lives . I believe that there is a thin line between happiness and misery . This is why little things can effect us and change our life’s . I say it because i have seen it in Kumar’s eyes and he did touch my soul

Tell a story with a photo

Today, I attended a photography workshop, and the main guest was Sami Al Ramyan. He is one of the most well known street photographers in Kuwait. He gave us a lecture about photo-shooting and how to create a story with a photo. Also, he shared some techniques he uses when he takes a photo.

In order to take a great photo, you should keep in mind the flowing:

  1. The photo should have a face, so it can appeal humane.
  2. A great photo can tell a thousand words.
  3. Adding sound effect  on the track to the photo can help to make it more emotional and deliver the message.
  4. black and white photos   touch the hart  easily.

after the workshop, I couldn’t resist taking my camera and starting taking picture of the audience

Kuwait National Day

A lot of people capture the moment  as they are lucky enough to have a career in photography. On tuesday which was  the day before the National Day of Kuwait i went to my nephew Nawaf  school event

The school was decorated with Kuwait flags and pictures of his highness shaikh Sabah Ahmad ALSabah . You can hear the national songs all over the school , nawaf was wearing “Deshdasha” and i painted a Kuwaiti flag on his face, and i thought this moment needed to be captured therefore i pulled out my Camera Canon and focused the image on their faces and i capture nawaf and his friend  by using portrait mode

You can sense the innocence in the eyes of the children. They feed on the happiness of the surrounding atmosphere and national day spreads an aura of love in the air that is felt by the kids and adults alike. The love they will show to their country when they grow older starts in their subconscious and these experiences for them as a children cements this love in their subconscious.

It was a great experience its one of those true moment that i will never forget that i experienced it with family and friends that i love
