Old Meets New

Sunset view of Dubai skyline from Jumeirah street. I reached this place while looking for a nice vantage point to shoo the Burj Khalifa. The colors in the sky started showing up while I was walking on a bridge. Couldn’t resist and stopped right here and took this shot at 55m focal length. Came out really well, showing the old area (Satwa) in the very foreground at the bottom, followed by the skyline and the Burj Khalifa. Shooting time-lapses always helps to do the time-blending. Here the building lights have been stacked from the latter frame of the time-lapse.

I am Waheed Akhtar, a digital director and fine art photographer from Dubai (UAE). I started doing photography in 2014. Having great eye and editing skills helped me to polish my skills in photography very quickly. In the first year of photography, I earned the Top 10 position in the Scott Kelby Global Photo Walk contest. My journey in long exposure photography started from there and I started practicing more on fine art photography. Since then, my photos won many international & local photography awards including photography magazine publications. I mostly shoot landscapes, nightscapes, cityscapes, architecture, and sometimes deep sky objects.
