Photography. Creating Magic in Simplest of Things.
Usually when a famous person is asked as to when their talent was first spotted they reminisce about their childhood and how even the first word they spelled was a clear indication of their love for their talent. In my case it was different. I was born amongst hundred ordinary children who are confused as to where their talent lies. For me it all started in A-levels when my sister who was in an Arts University begged dad to get her a professional Nikon camera. Like any younger sibling I was eager to get my hands on the new gadget in the house. I still remember the few times I had snuck the camera from my sister’s room and taken random pictures around the house only to be caught and scolded badly. But that wasn’t the end of it. I continued my quest. With a sea of random snaps came a lucky one. A snap that made it all begin. It was appreciated by my family and friends. Before I knew it I was clicking pictures of random things wherever I went. As time went by I got finer at it. Clicks weren’t random any more As I joined the university I realized that I can take my amateur passion to new levels. Exploring the photography society lead to few competitions held in university which made me confident enough to let people see my work. Soon I registered for the first ever PhotoWalk 2011 held in Lahore. Through much motivation and praise I was now a photographer.
Instagram a new application popular in Pakistan nowadays where people post pictures they want to share. We can also follow many inspirational photographers into gaining an insight of their work. I too have recently joined instagram in a quest to further polish my amateur skills and post pictures that I want to share with the world. Through my photography I try to capture magical moments. In our busy schedule seldom do we realize the magic held in simplest of things. We are exposed to so much in this era of technology that things don’t impress us much now. To me a fallen leaf, a white flower, chirping birds, sunsets and clear blue sky all seem magical and special.
Here is some of my work. Follow me on instagram mehru91.
Each day is a blessing; live it to the fullest.
