Series Description:
These artworks are photo-creations of Nawfal Johnson’s original paintings, and also, image creations from photographs captured of decaying urban walls. “Disorderly-Order”, the name of this series, has two distinct meanings. One, there is a method (Order) to the madness (Disorder) in the execution of these artworks. Two, the artist is taking a “more orderly” painting, or a fragment of an urban wall (photographed), and turing it up-side-down, and inside out, to get to the final photographic art representation. The disorderly from within the work, that is the order of the design built into the photographic artwork. Thus, these are ‘two-steps’ artwork creations—first-step, creating a painting (or photographing an urban still-life of a wall); and then, second-step, taking the original creation and designing a final art photograph.

CLOUDS PHOTOGRAPHY SERIES & This Blog – Behind the Lens

So, why the double-up on the CLOUDS #6912, Edit B, at this blog.  Well, here’s the answer:  The “autofocus” theme is a bit odd.  To get the image that I feature in my blog posts to show up on the main page of my photo-blog, I had to run through a few hoops to do it.  Using the “New Post” quicky button does not work – the images don’t show on the front page – only the titles of the blog appear.  To get my photos to show up on the front page, I have to go to my dashboard; go to the Posts (Show All) option; and then select the “Add New” post option.  Basically, you have to add a post using the “old’en” way method.  That kind of defeats the purpose of WP New Post quick options, but I prefer if people can see my photos on the main blog page.  So, that is the answer to the above question – why the double-up on the CLOUDS #9612 post image.

Now, I will Publish this and the photo of CLOUDS #9612, should, crossing my fingers, show up.

How did you manage to make this one??? Great!

Nawfal Nur says:

Thank you! The first thing is that it has to rain really heavy. Then, the next thing is that you need to be able to let yourself take your camera out in the rain, and know that it will probably get wet. You can always use some underwater casing, but oh well, I don’t. These are the biggest things that are needed to take this type of image. Then, it is a matter of trial and error – a lot of error!

It’s NOT about the Software!

Blue Liquid & Onion Splash, v1, Edit D, np2

Title:  “Onion Splash in Blue Liquid”
Creation Year:  2008

The other day, I was asked the question:  “So, what software did you use to create this photograph?”

This is a question that many photographers may think is quite innocent; after all, photo editing has become the natural second step with digital photography.  Photographs are shot and then “FIXED” (or “Created”) in Photoshop.

Many people believe that any old photograph can be taken without care to the details, AND THEN, IT CAN BE ‘FIXED’ IN PHOTOSHOP!  My splash photographs are NOT created with software.  However, I admit, there is a certain amount of fine-tuning that may be necessary with images like this, for which there is a need to use photo editing software.

At the very basic core of photography, every photograph starts with an idea and a camera.  For me, software considerations come much later in the photo-making process.  For example, Proper Lighting is the main consideration to capturing a great looking splash photograph.  Fine-tuning the type of lighting, the positioning of lighting and the diffusing and flagging of lighting are important concerns for creating this type of photograph.  You also need a very fast burst of light to freeze the action.

In my opinion, mastering lighting and camera techniques are the foundation to good photography.

IF a good image is captured from the start, there is less work needed in post production using photo editing software.  I do my best to set up the props, place the lighting and make the needed adjustments to the camera.  It is a blessing if you need less time to fix shots because you planned the original photo-shoot properly.

To sum up the points:  Photo editing software should never be a substitution for planning a photograph properly in the first place.  Getting the details of the photo-shoot worked out meticulously ahead of time can save valuable time in post production.  Becoming a master lighting expert and knowing your equipment inside and out, is much more important than relying on photo editing software to get the effects digitally.  Don’t count on photo editing software to make the photograph for you.  For some types of art photography, software can help you piece together photo parts, work with layers, add textures, place text, position borders, add filters, adjust the details, and edit out the problems.  However, without first knowing quite well, the foundation of good photography, you may not have much to work with when using your photo editing software.
