A letter A week?

DSC_0014[1]

Salam Alaykum,

I have been practicing lettering more and more. It is something that has always interested me and I have been looking into the work of Sean McCabe lately. He is releasing a course on lettering on Monday and uploaded a free sneak peek in form of his second episode of the series Learning Lettering.

As a student, who does designing on the side, I don’t think I will be able to afford it at the moment, but I’ll have to see. He also runs a podcast on Creativity and Business which I hope to get into, listening regularly once I can fix up my lack of organisation at the moment.

I thought I might be able to upload some of my tries at lettering, calligraphy etc. once every week on this blog. Maybe with a few thoughts on the Quote? Let’s see, till next week inshaAllah!

Wa Salam,

Abdur-Rahman

 

Photography 101

Salam Alaykum,

so I’m trying myself at some photography not as  easy as I thought but I think I’m slowly getting the hang of my camera and getting used to thinking about all kinds of things, such as lighting subject position etc.

Here are a few I’ve shot yesterday…

I’m thinking of posting a few photos a day on flickr or so, haven’t used my account there in a while. I am currently also writing a long response to a blog post I’ve read last week, the reason why it’s been relativelly quiet on here. So look out for that in a few days hopefully it just involves a lot of research I really don’t want to say stuff that has no grounding. It’s going to be in German though, might  translate it in the future.

Just a little update from me, until then inshaAllah,

Wa Salam,

Abdur-Rahman

Reblog: Free Yourself from Temptation

Lion of Allah

 

The hypocrites will call to the believers, “Were we not with you?” They will say, “Yes, but you led yourselves into temptations, you looked forward for our destruction; you doubted (in Faith); and you were deceived by false desires, till the Command of Allah came to pass. And the chief deceiver (Satan) deceived you about of Allah.

Surah Al-Hadid | Verse 14
