I’m Nishat Blagh, the author of nishatblagh.wordpress.com, if you hadn’t realised. This blog just represents the things I love doing, from gaming to blogging to opinions to photography to whatever-looks-good.
It’s not usual for a tiny dwarf in PJs with ketchup stains to climb onto the chair and type endlessly. Then again, it’s not usual for a former WWE Wrestler like Trump to
run become President. But I’m not loaded or tanned, just small.
Hey Nishat, why gaming?
My love for gaming started when I was young and covered with chickenpox whilst playing Street Fighter on the PS2. It was a great yet needless to say painful time, with blisters all over my thumb. My collection grew to Final Fantasy XII, Crash Bandicoot and WWE – a rather broad arsenal of games at my disposal. But I declared my true love quite late as I was playing through one of my favourite games ever, Red Dead Redemption.
After that epiphany, I played all the free games available on Games for Gold on the Xbox 360 and bought the classics, the Max Payne series, Gears of War, Walking Dead etc. Then I was introduced to PC and PS4 gaming not too long after and here we are now.
Why do you love photography so much?
Photography. Gaaahh, it’s so satisfying to shoot with a better camera after my horrible experiences, but they are experiences nonetheless so they helped me improve. I used to blast shots with my Mum’s LG KU990 camera-phone and I loved it. Then I upgraded to a Vivitar Vivicam. I took some memorable shots but it just died on me without any particular good reason except old age.
Then came the drought. I spent several years without anything except those disposable cameras where you had to spin the wheel then pop the flash up to take a photo. I decided I needed a better one so I got the Nikon Coolpix L29. It performed well, but battery life lasted 10 minutes at most and the flash always fired for some reason.
January 2016, I got a Sony NEX 5R and it was probably the best investment this decade. I’ve taken photography a lot more seriously now. It’s helped me reach out of my comfort zone and try new things, as well as know what reliable gear is. I can appreciate the little things in the design or production of things, as well as know what’s good and bad in photography.
Let it be known, however, that the Fujifilm X-T20 is a beast of a camera.
My future plans
I want to reach out of my comfort zone so I set up this blog. I’m hoping to soon self-host my own website as well, and then introduce my graphic designing skills (which I want to take seriously) and YouTube wisdom (which I’ll never take seriously) into the ballpark. Maybe make a digital portfolio that isn’t embarrassing and become fully self-sufficient.
This is a map of everywhere I’ve been, and I’ll forever keep on updating it.
