Hey there! 👋 I'm Emad, a photographer based in Berlin, Germany. Welcome to my visual diary where I document the world as my heart sees it.

Most photos here are the work of old-school film photography with no edits or post-processing of any kind. Only on rare occasions might I apply some minor cropping or straightening to adjust the frame as I visualized it while pressing the shutter button. Though I have nothing against post-processing, personally, I'm not a big fan of editing photos, as I believe I could use that same time to actually take photos instead of sitting for hours behind the computer trying to fix the outcome. It makes me more aware and less lazy during the whole photographing process, where I try to get everything right in the camera instead of thinking, "Ahh, let me get the shot quickly, I'll fix it in post-production."

Some of my posts here will also take you on my travel journey around the world with some limited occasional commentary. You might find those useful as a reference if you are planning your trip to the same place. I also post some digital work here, but as you might have guessed, I try to get the shot in the camera as I intended it to be. As such, my digital photography workflow also doesn't include any edits except for some occasional reframing. I mostly shoot digital on Fujifilm cameras. It has wonderful color science, and the photos that it produces are less clinical (though depending on your taste, genre of work, and expectations, this might not be to your liking) and have some feel to them. Combined with the tactile knobs and dials of the camera and some excellent pre-baked plus customizable film simulation recipes, it's the closest thing to getting the analog shooting experience and outcome.

I like clicking photos, no matter which kind, so I'm not limited to any specific genre of photography. You'll find all kinds of photography here, from documentary work to landscapes to portraits to street to travel to architecture and just about all kinds of photography. And neither do I have a distinct style to my photos, except me trying to give some heartfelt feeling to all my photos. If you are starting your photography journey, you may come across advice that is counter to these, asking you to limit yourself to specific genres and create a unique style. While this might make sense for professional work, when it comes to learning, exploring, and enjoying the experience, limiting yourself will only block your creativity and hinder your overall learning process. So my advice would be to just go out there and shoot to your heart's desires and enjoy the overall process. Eventually, you'll figure out what you like, what you are good at, and what you're great at.

Do reach out to me if you would like to collaborate together or if you'd like me to cover some occasion for you. I also sell prints and frames on demand, so you can inquire about that as well if you're interested. And finally, I appreciate all feedback, suggestions, and constructive criticism, so keep those coming my way.

Lastly, enjoy the photos here, but be mindful of copying any of the photos without prior permission. I usually don't mind having my content featured elsewhere, but please write to me if you are interested in publishing my photos elsewhere, and I'll get back to you as soon as I can.
