Here are some tips to help you get started:

Lighting - pay attention to lighting conditions and how they affect your photos. Experiment with natural light, flash, and artificial light sources to find the best results.
Composition - think about how you want to frame your subject, and consider the rule of thirds, leading lines, and other elements of composition.
Focus - make sure that your subject is in focus and the background is blurred to add depth and interest to your photos.
Settings - learn how to adjust your camera's settings, such as aperture, shutter speed, and ISO, to achieve the look you want.
Experimentation - don't be afraid to try new things and experiment with different techniques, such as long exposures, panoramic shots, and black-and-white photography.

This theme invites you to showcase your skills by creating beautiful calligraphy pieces that celebrate the verses of the Quran:
  • The Beauty of Quranic Verse 
    “Featuring passages from the Quran, either in their entirety or as selected verses.”
