Times of Youth: For those who don’t know about you and your work, can you tell us a little about yourself?
Times of Youth: What do you want your viewers to take away from your work?
Manahil Qureshi: I want them to say ‘Wow, I wish I was there too”. I want them to be able to actually feel whatever has happened while taking the picture. If they get the feeling, it means I am doing my job right. Other than that, I really want to be able to show a positive and happy side of the world. I do this by mainly capturing happy moments and letting everyone know that if there are tensions in life, there are happy moments too.
Manahil Qureshi: Do not post your rookie photography pictures, Manahil! I look back at them now and I laugh at myself. What was I even thinking when I posted them? On the other hand though I learnt a lot from all that, and any beginning is always supposed to be like that, right?
Manahil Qureshi: Nice question. Well, the question would be: Why did I take so long to come out and start my own page? The answer to that is that my father and his appreciation has always been really important to me. I would always hear everyone praise my work and tell me I’m super amazing and I should definitely come out. My answer would always be, ‘not right now, I’m waiting for something’. So, whenever I would show my father my work he would say “It’s okay”, that was definitely not enough for me. So I waited and waited and waited (took a lot of patience!). Then, finally one day he looked at one of these pictures I took and he replied “Wow”.That was the moment I knew that todayI’m ready to come out and share my work with people.
Manahil Qureshi: I’m still waiting for my favourite.
1) If you had to choose one lens which one would it be?
I shoot with Canon Mark III, Canon 600D, Nikon D810.
Nothing constant, keeps changing.
I love Photoshop and it is so hard to choose one tool so I will just go with the whole of Photoshop.
