Wars stories or: how you can’t shoot what you hate
Wars stories or: how you can’t shoot what you hate is a post by Fadi BouKaram I’ve been shooting Street Photography for two and a half years now. Until a few months ago it was a relatively easy path. It was easy simply because it was fun. The learning curve was steep; it still is. There was a lot to learn; there’s more even still. But none of [...]

Fekra Photography is more like Ser2a (Theft) Photography
There is a page called Fekra Photography on Facebook that is literally stealing other photographers’ work and appending a watermark on them.

This year 500px has seen tremendous growth and development, and although the ride was bumpy at times, our dedica [...]

World Photography Day

World Photography Day
On 19 August 1839, the French government announced the invention of photography as a gift “Free to the World”; one of the most important inventions of all times, in my opinion. :) Happy World Photography Day everyone! Check the website: World Photography Day

Documenting life on the streets as it is
Here is an article about the workshop that took place in AltCity on 27th of July, 2011 as a part of the AlMedia Experience week. I would like to point out that there is a big difference between “Citizen Journalism Photography” and “Street Photography” but a lot of people confuse them. The workshop was about Street Phot [...]

The best camera

The best camera
I went out today with two of cousins towards 5 pm to Public (Similar to Virgin Megastores). I did not take my camera with me as I was not in the mood for making photographs. On our way back, the younger cousin shows me a nice old building and asks me: -Do you have the camera with you? -No, I answered. -No problem, he replied… The best [...]
