ABSTRACT LIGHT STREAKS #88, The Owl

image

Title:  “ABSTRACT LIGHT STREAKS #88, The Owl.”
Creation Date: 31 March 2016.
“ABSTRACT LIGHT STREAKS” SERIES.
Series Years:  2015 – 2016.

SERIES DESCRIPTION:
This is a collection of nighttime, time-exposure, light streak photography.  There is something about nighttime photography that I really like:  it allows me to make light fluid and I can make it twist and turn however I wish to get the effect I want.  There are some happy accidents too with this kind of photography. 

LOCATION:
All of these photographs were created in Penang, Malaysia.

Photography Genre:
  I would classify this as something I call, “Active (or Fluid-Light) Abstract Expressionism Photography.”

Something Different – I have an All Time Editor’s Pick in BetterPhoto’s 20th Anniversary Contest!

To:  Me

  From: Jim Miotke 
Mar 29, 2016 

Subject:  ! Big Congrats! You Earned an All Time Editor’s Pick in BetterPhoto’s 20th Anniversary Contest! 

Message:Hi Nawfal

Congratulations! I have the pleasure of telling you something very cool… Your photo – “Dragonfly Portrait” – has been selected as an All Time Editor’s Pick in BetterPhoto’s 20th Anniversary “All Time Best” Contest! 

☆  The link to see my photo is:

A note:

I have not thought about, or logged into Betterphoto, in…years!  This notice came out of nowhere.  I was one of the EARLY members.  I stopped participating at BP long ago because I judged that there was simply no R.O.I. (Return on Investment)…for me.  Maybe others have had better success at BP.  It is a good site and it is popular, no doubt, and Jim has a good business model or he would not be celebrating BP’s 20th Anniversary.

Nevertheless, it is nice to hear that one of my old photos at BP has had the steam to still catch the eye of the photo Editors, enough so to be included as an All Time Editor’s Pick photograph.

WOW!  Another “Thoughts on Photography” so close to the last one I published a couple of days ago.

Long-suffering Artist Don’t Work and LOOKING IN THE MIRROR #1 on 28 March 16

I haven’t been giving you very many “Thoughts on Photography”, maybe because I have found the industry and craft too confusing and filled with too many flammable arguments that sometimes it appears it is best just to keep quiet and just exhibit my art-photographs.  Nevertheless, I did like what Don Giannatti wrote in his recent newsletter.

“No longer is the long suffering artist able to fly under the radar and have only a tiny presence of a few galleries. These days that long-suffering artist is also suffering working part time for Walmart while secretly cursing the “internet celebrity” with half the talent who is speaking at TED, and pulling down half a million or more.”  ~ Don Giannatti ~

That is some food for thought…and very, very true.

And thus,
