Attention to all Photographers ( Amateur or Professional ),

Hajj is just around the corner. So there will be festivities going on. Our stomachs will look forward to the Rendang, the Ketupat and more right.  Hajj unlike Aidilfitri signifies more than just that “Makan” celebration as it also indicate “Sacrifice” which goes back to the story of Prophet Abrahams a.s.

I do not want  to go into details about that, so let’s get to the point.

The images can be:

and more. We leave it to you with your imagination.

  1. Quick Question from an Interested Participant:

    Question: Can I take pics of sheep without slaughtering. Can take picture upside down?

    Answer:

    Its up to your creativity. What’s more important is ADAB. Please don’t shoot the animals private parts and show to the world.

    If you are taking pictures of people, please request permission. ( Nanti orang minta royalty pula )

  2. I have two questions: i) About Picture size ?
    ii) How abt basic editing such as cropping or sharpness/contrast !

    Thanks

    Sahari

    • Assalammualikum wr wb,

      Thank you for the question Mr Sahari. High Res image would be great. Nowadays most digital cameras generates a high Res image. As mention in the rules you don’t have to crop images or edit the images. for contrast etc, you should know to adjust from your cameras.

      This is to make fair for those who does not know how to edit images. Please play by the rules.

      Thank you
