I'm Omar from Kuwait, I'm an art enthusiast and I enjoy anything that is related to photography and graphic designing. Currently Studying Computer Information Systems at Missouri State University.
Ever since I was a kid I was really into technology and art, I remember playing with an Atari 2600 and old handheld games, and this continued on and I'm still into Video Games. Feel free to add me: Xbox Gamertag: MrKu8, PlayStation: Bizkitpark.
I've also been interested in art ever since I was a kid too, and I think I got that from my father. I remember that I tried to draw (copy) some of his photos using trace papers. I started using Photoshop when I was around 15 years old. I remember experimenting and playing around with it and somehow I managed to teach myself how to use it, few years later I managed to design a notebook cover to one of Kuwait University's clubs and they printed more than 1000 copies of it! I started to get interested in photography later on, spent around 2 years researching and teaching myself about the principles of photography (this all happened before buying a camera!), and when I felt that I've learned enough and I need to have a camera to continue to learn more I got myself a Nikon D3100, and within the first 4 months I took around 10,000 photos which many of them were absolutely terrible! seriously they were so bad that I can't even look at them! Soon later I started to learn about HDR photography and realized that my D3100 wont allow me to shoot in that style, so I sold my D31000 and got myself a D7000. While using the D7000 I started to learn more because of the features that this camera had, I even bought a 14-24mm f/2.8 lens, I then started taking online tutorials by Trey Ratcliff and started learning more about photography. I even used what I learned from the tutorials in Trey Ratcliff's photowalk during Google+ Photographers Conference; where I got picked as one of the top 5 photographers in that photowalk!! Right now I'm trying to familiarize myself with Digital arts and 3D designing and hopefully I will try to mix all my art talents into single art pieces.
Music that I like:
Tool, A Perfect Circle, Rishloo, Karnivool, Riverside.
