Photography Everyday?

“One question I get asked sometimes is, “Do I do photography everyday?””

“The simple answer is, ‘No’, I don’t photograph subjects everyday.

In fact, sometimes, one, two, or even three weeks may roll by between the actual process of photographing things.

I know, that is ‘BLASPHEMOUS’, some other Photographers may exclaim!

Well, here is my reasoning: IF, I photographed everyday, I would never get to the actual creation of Art Photographs that I do, and my photographic art pieces do take (considerable) time to complete.

I already have a backlog of RAW images that I need to edit and work with. Maybe other Photographers need to be photographing everyday, but I don’t! I already have enough RAW images I need to work with, and I can only do that if I am at my desk, working with those images on my TAB (or a computer) and doing the ACTUAL creative work to design images for my various series.

So, ‘No’ is the answer to that question. When I run low on RAW image files, or, if I just want to go take pictures, then, I grab my camera and hit the streets to find new subject matter. Nevertheless, I am always composing images in my mind, and photographing images in my mind as I walk around: It is a habit for me.

☆ I do always carry my camera with me, as that is PHOTOGRAPHY’S FIRST CARDINAL RULE: ‘ALWAYS HAVE YOUR CAMERA WITH YOU’!

However, that does not mean that I always take my camera out and capture photographs for nothing. In my opinion, a subject REALLY needs to POP-OUT at me and grab my attention, or look VERY interesting for me to compose a picture with my camera. It is just the way I am now, with my photography.

5 Tips to Help You Get Your Photography Post-Processing Done

There are more than 5 work strategies to get your stuff done, regarding your image processing; NEVERTHELESS, I want to list 5 recommendations I think about most and put into practice.

1.  DON’T PROCRASTINATE!  Just get to the post-processing—don’t wait!  Get to the new photos while they are still new and you are still excited about working on them.  If the images are for a job, then working quickly is a necessity—you have a deadline!  Also, if you delay the processing, you will likely be adding continuously to a backlog of photographs needing to be edited and designed.  Having a backlog of photographs can cause unnecessary stress.

2.  Edit, Edit, Edit!  If you took 500 digital photographs during your latest photo-excursion, you already know NOT all are keepers.  Some images may be so bad that you can delete those just by quickly looking at them on your camera LCD.  For the second edit, view your images on a large screen and check for details—get rid of any images that are NOT high-quality and do not fit your purpose, or, images that you simply can’t visualize working creatively with now, or, at some point in the future.  Of course, if you have unlimited hard drive space, you can save everything, but why make your image catalogue messy with so many unedited photographs.

3. Organization:  Once you have edited-down your new images, you can get them organized.  I move my digital images into folders by subject matter, e.g., abstract art, abstract trees, cat portraiture, etc.  I find that early-organizing images by subject will drastically make things easier later on when it is time to copy or move the originals of a subject, and the processed art photos of that same subject, into an archiving solution.  You can easily, then, just copy an entire folder to an archiving solution.

4.  Know Your Photo-Editing Software:  Find photo-editing software that you like, does all that you need, and that you can work with quickly and creatively.  I have always preferred Paint Shop Pro over Photoshop:  Perhaps both programs do roughly the same jobs, but I prefer the working nature of Paint Shop Pro.  In my opinion, it is more user-friendly and it is more customizable than Photoshop.  Photoshop is no doubt great software, but there are other options too, like Gimp, which is good, and free.  The key is to choose something  that works excellently for you, and that it is something you want to learn comprehensively to get the most out of it.  Of course, it is best to get the photographs as good as possible in-camera so you DON’T need to spend a lot of time using editing software.

5.  Practice What You Preach!  You may already have a post-processing system that works well for you, and if that is the case, then stick with it.  If your system is breaking down, then switch things up, maybe you can use some of the advice I have given.  A good system, no matter what, should make your post-processing go smoothly, efficiently, and quickly.  As important, your system should help you reduce stress and enjoy the work more—it should not do the opposite.

BONUS TIP:
STAY FOCUSED!  There are many distractions out there to sidetrack your progress—fight against these urges.  Each distraction will eat away at time, time that you can never get back.  Thus, stay focused on your photography project and just get it done, and then you can take a break.

Finding Nawfal Nur, Art Photography at ImageKind dot Com

TO FIND "NAWFAL NUR" at IMAGE KIND, YOU MUST DO A SEARCH for NAWFAL NUR to FIND His ART PHOTOGRAPHY - PUT HIS NAME IN THE "SEARCH" LINE AS SHOWN IN THE PHOTO ILLUSTRATION

TO FIND “NAWFAL NUR” at IMAGE KIND, YOU MUST DO A SEARCH for NAWFAL NUR to FIND His ART PHOTOGRAPHY – PUT HIS NAME IN THE “SEARCH” LINE AS SHOWN IN THE PHOTO ILLUSTRATION, THEN HIS ARTWORK WILL COME UP.

I never thought I would have to give instructions on how to find me (“Nawfal Nur”) at ImageKind.com; but the time has come to saturate these instructions wherever I can, because Imagekind makes it SO difficult to find my Art Photography when putting in something so direct, as the NAME of individual pieces of my artwork.  It is Supreme’O Insane’O to the Maximus!

Click on the photo above to go to my name’s search page where some of my work shows up.

On the one hand, I really like Imagekind – they have never failed me, or my customers.  They offer wonderful printing, plenty of options, first-rate products, perfect framing, brilliant customer service and fast & safe shipping.  I’ve ONLY heard good things from my customers about their experience with Imagekind.

On the other hand, I’ve been a member at Imagekind since their beginning – I’ve been a member since 2006!  A Grand Opening Member.  My photography has provided them and me with business.  NEVERTHELESS, I don’t care if I’m not a “preferred” member, or whatever the hell they say determines search priority; I think that if someone is specifically looking for my work, and they plug into the “SEARCH” field my Name or the names/titles of my works, then my work should show up FIRST in Line for the Search Results.

I’ve experimented putting in exact titles of my work, into the Search field, and work that has no connection to the title that was inputed, comes up first, and in the first dozens of pages.  This is simply ridiculous.

I mean, IF I have to physically put the URL and a small image of each of my artworks, at my blogs, then so be it.  There’s nothing I can do to change the way they constructed their SEARCH algorithm – it simply favors certain members.

Well, if that’s the case, then I’ll just have to direct everyone, personally, to my artwork pages.

With that said, I wanted to let you know that I just uploaded 22 new Smoke Art Photographs that belong to a new collection, “SMOKE-EVOLUTION 3”.  Please have a visit to see this new work.  Thanks!
