There is no simple answer to why I LOVE photography. What can be captured in a picture goes well beyond what could ever be captured with words. While aiming through the viewfinder and searching for the perfect angle, the perfect flicker of light, and the perfect smile, grimace, scream, or flock of hair, there is a sense of calmness and peace that comes over me. It's as if nothing else exists beyond the reach of my zoom button.
What would otherwise happen in one moment and be gone the next is forever captured and held tight by photography! What better thing in the world is there to LOVE ?
I believe that people who love photography have a certain passion and curiosity for life. They are not content to let the smallest, most mundane things that occur in the world go unnoticed. They are excited at the mere thought of discovering the unknown and getting up close and personal with every aspect of this world.
In these pictures I often see a glimmer in someone's eye that tells me they are not happy or a smile so deniably gleeful and exhilarated that the happiness of that moment has touched that person forever. These tend to be raw, un-posed pictures snapped at random moments when the subjects and myself least expect anything profound to be revealed.
Right there in those moments, that is why I love photography! It's not so much in the thrill and fun of snapping the pictures but in the off guard moments when some very real, stark honest reflection of humanity comes out of my camera and is born forever into the world. I owe thanks to my family, my parents and sistes, who encouraged me so much in life and helped me become the person I am today. Baizura Zulkifli, thanks for coloring my life and thanks to all my friends. And THE MOST OF IT, for being the biggest part of it, Thank you, Allah. A million thanks for those who are visiting my site. PHOTOGRAPHY - Nabil Zulkefli
