My Name is Bashar Al-Kuwaiti and I’m the man behind 2 Rivers Photos.
My background is in Engineering so naturally I’m technically inclined and I’ve always been somewhat drawn to gadgets. My first experience with photography was when I was child, my father had his own SLR and used to develop his own film. I was drawn to the sound of the shutter and I shadowed him quite a bit without really picking up anything besides knowing that I really enjoyed holding the camera and pretending to be like him 🙂 Fast forward into the future, where I graduated and got my own career started. It allowed me to save and start travelling on my own, luckily I got to do a bit of that on the job also. One thing was for certain, I wasn’t impressed with what I captured; it didn’t do what I experienced any justice!
Right around then I noticed an old friend of mind was posting some amazing photos of his own travel experiences. So I reached out to him to figure out his “secret” and he was kind enough to introduce me to SLR photography. I will forever be grateful to him as he opened a door to my personality that I never knew existed: enjoying and appreciating art 🙂 This is my journey through this new passion of mine.
I try to write the same the way I would talk to you if I was there in person, I find it a lot more effective to get my idea across 🙂 Generally I try to write something relevant to the image and if not then I try to relate it to something relevant going on in the news or my life.
As far as equipment, my bag consists of:
– Canon EOS 5D MkII
– EF 16-35 f/2.8 II L IS USM
– EF 50mm f/1.8 II
– EF 70-200 f/2.8L IS USM
– Speedlight 580EX II
