BEHIND THE LENS

While I was gone..

Hey Guys!

I know its been SOH long! I missed blogging and you! 🙂 This would be a filler blog explaining my absence. This is a series one of the blogs I’ll be posting, There will be teasers and lots o pics!! =D

In January, I was given the honor to  adjudicate TAMASHA 20Eleven; An event entailing theatre, painting, Sketching, Essay writing and musical concerts, as a Jury member for a Photography Competition at FAST-NU (Islamabad). There were other amazing photographers on the panel stemming from different fields of photography; Mobeen Ansari, A good friend and an artistic soul graduate from NCA possessed with a multitude of talents; Photographer, painter, sculptor and video-grapher. feel free to follow Mobeen on Facebook 🙂 We were also joined by Naved Ahmed; who is a Visual artist, Graphic Designer and Media Student also, Owner of Sufined and you can follow him on Facebook, then we had the honor of being joined by Awais Yaqub who is indulgent in nature, landscape and architectural photography. It was a treat to meet him and he graciously let me test his lens, since I was thinking of purchasing it next. =D Guys, feel free to follow him on facebook and check out his wesbite; www.awaisyaqub.com So, with the jury team, in unison we deliberated the fate of the photos. =)

The photos were a mix of art meets translation, with creative themes;

  • Re-branding Pakistan
  • Truck art
  • Father & Child
  • Photo Essays

TAMASHA 20eleven had participants from all over Pakistan, Our FAST NU Islamabad Campus was housing all the out-of city participants, taking care of the food & accommodation. I had a few one-to-one discussions regarding lighting and conceptual shots & their execution with the participant lot and it was a thoroughly enjoyable experience! =D

Here are some pictures from the day for you to enjoy;
