Subject’s Name: “Cookie” a.k.a. “Number One.”
Genre: Kitten Portraiture.
Specific Difficulties with Genre: You Place – They Move. No Reasoning with a Kitten!
Age: About 4 Weeks Old.

You MUST HAVE Patience to create good Cat & Kitten Portraiture – Ahhhhh Patience:  They were here a minute ago.

“Cookie stay here…
Cookie stay here…
Cookie stay, no not there, come back here…
Cookie look here…NO, don’t move…
OK, let’s try that one more time…
Cookie, where are you going?  Can’t you see I’m trying to take your picture?
I think this is it Cookie, this is it…NO, don’t chew on the camera strap!
SOCRATES!  Don’t bother Cookie!
Don’t you lunatics know this is a serious situation?!?
Who spilled the water?
It’s not lunch time!
Do you mind turning back to actually face the camera – if it’s not too much to ask?”

And that’s just the first 5-minutes of the session.  Things seem to get more chaotic after that.

 

 

 

THOSE FLOWER PHOTOGRAPHS by Nawfal Johnson

Flower Photographs

Yeah, those Flower Photographs:  I will just get them out of the way right now – below are some of my better ‘Flower Photographs’.

I do love flowers, but I don’t photograph them much any more.  ONLY when I see exceptionally great specimens, then I will create a photograph.

So, without much ado, here are my Photographs of Flowers – Most of these were Photographed between 1998 and 2003.

Head Shot Photography by Nawfal Johnson

Head Shot Photography

Yesterday, I photographed my daughter, Jenan.  I did not want to dig out my DSLR, nor did I want to mess with flash units.  Thus, I grabbed my “old” (by today’s standards in digital camera techn0logy), and trusty, PANASONIC DMC-LZ8 (circa. 2008 model).

I convinced Jenan to be my subject and she was very cooperative, which is always good for the photographer. The sky was also cooperative, providing me with soft, cloudy, ambient daylight.  Any of the big catch-lights in the eyes are reflections from the biggest light source in the world – the cloudy, but bright sky.
