Thank you for reading the news about Staying at home shouldn't be a hindrance for creative photography and now with the details
Aden - Yasmine El Tohamy - Being forced to stay at home during the Covid-19 pandemic is already a challenge for photographers, who are used to moving around and explore.
And even more so during the holy month of Ramadan; we'll be missing out on the very interesting subjects outdoors we've all been looking forward to, but that doesn't mean you can't be creative anymore.
"It's a challenge to create beautiful pictures when we have to stay home especially in Ramadan. But I love challenges, and the 'stay at home Ramadan' initiative pushed me to explore new kind of photography," Abdullah Alshaiji, a Kuwaiti photographer, told Al Khaleej Today.
He added that staying at home wasn't a reason for him to just stop snapping away; in fact, it gave him an opportunity to further explore a career he's been doing for so long now, especially with his iPhone in tow.
"My passion to photography is not going to stop just because I have to stay home. On the contrary, I think this gave me a chance to reflect and experiment some photography techniques that I never had a chance to explore before."
The same sentiment is shared by Emirati photgrapher Mohammed Alkaabi who, during these stay-at-home times, found ways to remain motivated.
"As artists we can't be controlled by time or a place. Art can be done anywhere at anytime and the artist should be capable to come up with art pieces no matter what are the circumstances," he pointed out.
Alkaabi has also used this period to encourage his followers to find more ways to be creative - even in the confines of their homes - with the iPhone.
"I always love to encourage my followers to take photos, shoot videos and learn new stuff. So I took the chance this Ramadan while everyone is at home to create new creative content and teach my followers how to come up with similar results."
As such, favourite subjects have emerged for both photographers - who use their iPhones to snap away - during these times: For Alshaiji, time-lapse shots of sunrise and sunset, as well as lifestyle; for Alkaabi, it's food and sunset, with night mode a staple for his shots at this period of time.
Alshaiji would also want to remind budding photographers of two important elements to make a good picture stand out from the average.
"The composition and the message. Those two strong features are the two pillars of a successful picture."
