How do you edit your photos?

For the most part I use Adobe Lightroom to edit my photos, combined with Adobe Photoshop if I need to tidy up an image.

 

Where are you from?

I'm from Benghazi, Libya.

 

How long have you lived in Ottawa?

I moved from Benghazi to Ottawa during the summer of 2014 so just over 5 years ago.

 

How did you get started with photography?

I've always had a passion for photography since I was a child. I started off with a disposable camera when I was in elementary school and then slowly moved to a point and shoot camera whenever I travelled. Then, like most people, I started using my smartphone. In summer 2016, I decided to take it more seriously by purchasing my first DSLR and here I am now.

 

Have you ever studied photography or taken a photography class?

No! I'm currently studying marketing at the University of Ottawa, and never thought about studying photography or taking a class . I don't believe you need a formal education in photography in order to be successful, but it definitely wouldn't hurt. That being said, becoming a photographer involves a passion and an eye that academic classes may never be able to give you, and you can definitely learn on your own.
