Capturing Life’s Moments through the lens

Photography is the art and practice of capturing and preserving images using a camera. It’s a way of telling a story or conveying an emotion through visual means. 

1.Portrait Photography

Life is a journey full of ups and downs, but it’s what you make of it that counts, so that I decided to capture the human skeleton that serves as the framework for the body and also to show some the bones and the skull. It was around 5h PM when I took this photo, I wanted to show that the beauty of a person Is visible when you are alive after death no one will know how beautiful you were or who you were because all we see is the human skeleton. 

2.Documentary Photography

In normal life we like to drink water because water is life, so I decided to use four different photos that tell the story of a thirsty drinking water. The first photo shows him opening the bottle he is going to use when drinking water, The second photo shows him pouring water into the bottle he is going to use for drinking and the third photo shows him drinking water from a bottle and, Also the last photo shows him finished drinking water from the bottle.

3.Sports Photography

Cycling stimulates and improves your heart, lungs and also reduce the risk of different diseases. This photo shows the energy and the action, So I took this photo of a team cyclists who were training to climb the steep road in preparation for the competition of cycling race.

4.Landscape Photography

The landscape photo on Daylight that shows the nature features of Land and also the Sky at a distance and the beauty of the mountains. This photo was taken in Rulindo district located in the Northern province of Rwanda. When I took this photo, I wanted to show the beauty of the mountains and the nature because when you look deep into nature you will understand everything better, Any landscape is a condition of the spirit.

5.Still Life Photography 

Avocado are source of key nutrients, including healthy fats and fiber, I saw a lot of avocados in the market and they looked good and I thought of arranging them out of the bag that was there and I took one of them that was not full an I put on top of other to make it look better in the photo and its beautiful color attracts attention and the final came up with this beautiful still photo.

6. Street Photography

This photo was taken around 5h PM on the street of Gikondo Merez I, Students were walking home on the street and other cross the street (Zebra crossing) and indicates people moving towards their destinations.” It’s not the street, it’s where the streets lead you that’s important.”
