Let’s have a brief interview with our young heroine.

Hi Bahare, ‏tell a little about yourself? 

Hello, ‏my name is Bahare Salehnia, ‏I’m a photographer, ‏graduated in civil engineering.

‏After finishing university I confused between choosing my college field and my true interest, ‏which was photography, ‏then I decided to follow my dream and learn what I like, ‏and I thought that would grant my future.

‏So I started to learn and take part in some courses as Peter Coulson portrait workshop and step by step developed myself into it.

Well, ‏when did you decide to communicate with people on social media, ‏and what was your motivation for it?

I have started my activities since ‎2017, ‏at first I’ve just posted my pictures and shared them, ‏but then I decided to teach photographs with mobile phones instead of cameras because our camera is not always along us while the phone is and, ‏my main reason was that I found out my friend’s pictures and others have just some small weaknesses that can easily fix just by knowing little technics about photography, ‏my I began and made ‎#باهم_عکاس_بشیم ‏hashtag which meant let’s be a photographer together.

How does your Instagram activity mean to you? Is it serious or only for your joy?

‏It’s definitely serious, ‏and in fact it’s my job and career but as I really like it, ‏so it’s kind of fun too.

What content you share on your Instagram page?

I share a couple of subjects, ‏as how to take good pictures, ‏how to edit them and how to pose for, ‏in a simple and creative way.

‏Besides I like to help people increase their confidence and motivate the one who doesn’t believe themselves to be more positive about their work.

What’s your key to success? And your popularity?

In my point of view perhaps it’s because I’m my truly self and I don’t pretend for anything, ‏and I care so much about my followers’ ‏time, ‏so I try to make summarized, ‏quick and short content for them.

‏But generally I believe success is a mixture of persistent effort, ‏passion, ‏patience and a little talent.

Thanks, ‏and what are your final words for people who follow you and want to be successful?

I recommend that respect your fans, ‏love Them, be their friend, ‏avoid making repetitive subjects, and have clear aims.
