My First Pre-natal Photoshoot

On a lighter side of photography, I was invited by an Indonesian friend of mine to help and assist her with her first (yes her first too) pre-natal photoshoot last week. Due to lack of light, we made some improvisation. We didn’t use any soft box or beauty dish or what not. With the help of her lamp light and the ambient light, coming from the window as our light source.

Here are some of the photos I took during the photo shoot session. Also, I learned something in Photoshop. I now know how to add borders, watermark and some 3D effect which I’ll use very soon in my future photos 🙂

Peace and love x

Camera: Fuji XE1

North Emirates Roadtrip

I have been meaning to update my blog for days now. But i was down with a flu and am just beginning to recover from it. I wanna thank Sia’s song Chandelier and Kiesza’s Hideaway which is on repeat and helped me get pumped while i was editing some photos from my last photowalk.  (I listen to some mainstream songs once in a while, sorry not sorry!) I think i have never mentioned before that I don’t know how to use Photoshop. My workflow is currently on Lighroom. I did some attempts to learn PS, by the way. My friends/colleagues who has been very supportive and offer their help. Thanks for their undying support and love! But one thing that is taking me aback is probably not having a proper laptop. Its a bit of a challenge, knowing that I need to post process millions of photos. So every other week i try to bring home my office lappy (I know am not supposed to) to edit some photos and update my blog.

About last week, 5 of us Instagrammers based in Dubai and Sharjah planned a road trip to Umm Al Quwain. Originally, we planned go to Umm Al Quwain and we ended up going to @amran.abdulla favorite spot at the Gulf of Oman. It is basically an ocean between UAE and Oman. The hidden spot is in Fujairah, Al Aqqa Beach to be exact. The beach was a breath of fresh air especially after a very long drive and occasional stops along the way (very humid at that time, mind you). Here are some of my photos taken on Al Dhaid-Sharjah Highway and Al Aqqa Beach. Enjoy! Ciao 🙂
