Hi all! There’s nothing special about my username, @_yafiqyusman_. It’s just my name. Some describe me as an easy going person but some describe me as a serious person. Seriously? Before they knew me I guess, . They also describe me as a positive person and I’m definitely fickle-minded! If you ask me what I enjoy in life. My answer is spending time with the family. To me, family is the best gift one can receive. Time spending with them are priceless. ~ What I really do daily? I’m currently serving the nation but let’s not talk about it cause I always did on my feed! Things people might not know bout me, I really love to sing! I sang almost everyday~ However, I only sing in front of people I’m comfortable with. I’ve got stage fright and really shy at times.
So I knew Instagram from a cousin of mine, @nhaszirah, almost 3 years ago. She ask me whether I use it or not? Without any hesitation, I downloaded it and I was impressed by how Instagram turned simple snap shots beautifully. I’m into photography but I wasn’t good at it (scroll down my feed to see my old shots). I picked up the skills slowly by learning from the people I followed. Then, I’m hooked to it! ~ In my opinion, Instagram is a means of how I portray my feelings towards a certain picture. It can be really personal till no one understand but it can also be relatable. Usually about life. I love to inspire people to be a better person and it motivates me to keep improving myself. Keep thinking positive!
I love to observe a lot of elements in my surrounding. At times, I capture things people might not be able to see through normal perspective. Such as puddles and architecture shot. I love sunsets cause they’re one of the most beautiful things I look forward everyday. Scroll through my hashtag, #ohmy_sunset to see them! When going out with the family or friends, especially my twin brother, I love to capture what they’re wearing with interesting backdrops! You can also see them through my hashtag, #projextootd! Recently, I created a hashtag #strangersinpuddle where I capture strangers in puddle, haha DUH. Usually, the focused subject is at the rule of third. ~ What apps do I use? As weird as it may sound, I only use Snapseed and the old Vscocam! PhotoStudio if I have to colour splash! I used to edit dramatically when HDR pics are in trend but now, I try my best to make my picture look as natural as possible.
I really appreciate the presence of communities such as @InstaSG! They’re the one who bring people I “virtually” meet through pictures together by having instameets! To the others who never attended an instameet, please do so! Don’t be shy! Believe me, you will enjoy it! The perks, I made wonderful friends through Instagram especially from the @InstaSG meets! ~ To end my interview, I would like to thank the most important person apart from my parents.. My beloved twin brother, @_yaisyusman_, for always supporting me in everything about photography! Thank you my life best friend!
