Otakukart, the voice of the Indian Anime Community has yet again taken over a new initiative. Previously, the AnimeBlog website had taken upon the Anime India Initiative. The sole purpose of which was to provide big solid news to the Indian Anime fans. Other initiatives taken over by the website include providing food and clothes to the ones that are needy. Now, Otakukart has come up with a new initiative to bring the several artists around us to light. Here, we learn what an individual artist has done and faced to reach their current position. This is called OtakuKart Artist Focus. Herein, the first artist to come up to introduce themself is the photographer, Edward Ameen.
We asked him some questions about his work. The discussion that took place during the interview has been showcased below.
1. When did you start taking photos & What is the dream you are trying to achieve?
Actually, my family is full of photographers, especially my Father and Grandfather. So, I could say that it’s in my blood. As for my dream, I want to create an application to form a link between the photographers and visitors in the City.
2. What was the biggest obstacle you faced, and how did you overcome it?
The biggest obstacle to my photography was my family. This was because all of them wanted me to become a doctor. But as my work began to be recognized and I was getting famous, I overcame the pressure.
Speaking of anime, I do watch them but only in my spare time. My favorites would be Naruto, Dragon Ball & Attack on Titan.
4. What do you know now about photography that you didn’t know three years ago?
During the course of three years in photography, I have come to learn much more about photoshop. Along with this, I have started to master taking pictures in the right place having a good amount of light.
5. Would you give any suggestions for the aspiring photographers out there?
My suggestion for photographers is to have an eye for something that is unique. Make sure you truly capture the simple happiness of people when you photograph them.
6. How does it feel to be appreciated by millions of people for the photography you have done?
I feel really happy about it. My goal is for people to recognize the uniqueness of each individual I photograph.
