City of Lahore - Pakistan

I’ve been living in Lahore since past 5 years now. A great place to live and for photography. It has many historical places like Lahore Fort (Shahi Qilla), Badshahi Mosque, Shalimar Gardens, Wazir Khan Mosque, etc. I have photographed most of the places but still there are many more to visit. I think Lahore has more historical places than any other city in Pakistan. Minar E Pakistan picture is the most popular one in my portfolio which got 7 sales. You can see some of my shots below.  ... continue reading

Editorial Images

Newbees mostly avoid taking shots that have any recognizable face in it or where model release is needed. By doing this they limit their uploads, expansion and also the earnings. But I have seen many photographers on Dreamstime who are getting reasonable amount of sales from editorial images. It also opens many new doors to cover more subjects. Luckily one of my editorial image just sold for $2.20.  continue reading

Magical evening clouds in our village

I'm not very good at sunset/sunrise photography. Like most of the DT members here I'm still learning. I was in my village for the weekend and saw the formation and colors of clouds. I never saw such a beautiful and magical sunset live before. I quickly grabbed my camera and took some shots. First few shots did not look good then I used Nikon sunset preset and finally got couple of shots to upload and luckily DT approved them.   continue reading

Accepted photo

You should be at right place at the right time to take such a shot + need an additional hand to create action. In our village these big frogs only appear after heavy rain. So after the rain I found lots of them around a pond. Then I spotted a frog which was in perfect position at pond edge. My friends helped me to make that frog jump. I’m not very good at manual focus so for correct focus I took some shots while it was sitting. I knew that I have only one chance so no room for any mistake. I set... continue reading

You have to be at right place at right time to take such shot

An awesome shot taken during heavy rain when a kid fell running on a slippery ground. These kind of photos are hard to find and you have to be at right place at right time. It was very exciting to watch stormy rain and natural beauty of the village. This photo has been approved for an monthly assignment at dreamstime.com . I’m hoping to win $300 or at least $200. Good luck to other contestants too.  continue reading
