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.

Technology seems to be hassling me again…..Vivien !!!

If you are familiar with “The Young Ones”, then you may remember the episode where Neil is being hassled by technology!

Well, Vivien, Technology is hassling me too!

I tried to call up my blog….in two different browsers, and I get error pages.

GREAT!

I’M SURE, this too will pass. Nevertheless, why is it when I want to do something (with technology), it finds a need to hassle me?!?

Oh well………

AND……

NOW, I’m having trouble publishing this post…..SERIOUSLY…..GREAT!!!

OK….Positive Nawfal, trying to reason with the WP Gremlins.

So….how’s that working for me? Let’s see….hit the Publish button again….and….

Great! Positive Nawfal…..it isn’t working.

Would someone please get WordPress some WD40!

Much Work Completed, Backlogged, and not Exhibited Yet, But that is soon to Change

DEALING WITH BACKLOGGED ARTWORKS YET TO BE EXHIBITED

So…

I constantly have new artworks…in the works.

Thus, I have many completed works that I have yet to exhibit here on my blog. That is soon to change: I just need to focus! Use the Force, Nawfal! LOL!

I think the main reason I am backlogged on the exhibition of my work here, is simply, because that is the final step in my process of working.

In simplified terms, my Work Process is thus:

  1. Planning / Cognitive Creation.
  2. Putting Ink to Paper.
  3. Completion of Work and Final Processes.
  4. Photographing the Work.
  5. Basic Editing of Photographs.
  6. Complex Editing of Photographs.
  7. Creation of Photographic Artwork.
  8. Uploading Art Photographs to My Art Gallery Sales Website, at http://nawfalnur.imagekind.com/ , and doing ALL the text detailing needed to prepare each photograph for sale.
  9. Composing Blog Posts at https://smokephotographist.wordpress.com/ to explain, exhibit, and market each new art photograph.

These are complex steps, and much of the time I get stuck at Step 4; and leave it to say, I am frustrated with this fact because I’m a Photographer! This should not be happening, but it does. Therefore, I complete a lot of works, and only then do I photograph these completed works, in batches.

  • Therefore, Steps 1 thru 3 are easy for me, but Steps 4 thru 9 are done only occasionally.
  • And thus, I need to work on photographing my artworks on a more regular schedule.

It is a Good Idea to Identify Where in Your Work Process You Have Problems

Steps 8 and 9 are also slow-going much of the time. Perhaps because Steps 8 and 9 are more like Administrative Tasks, and I find them not so fun, or maybe, too redundant. I have difficulty concentrating on repetitive tasks—I find repetitive tasks very boring.

All that I know for sure, is that I’m aware of where I get clogged-up in my work process. That is a good start. That being the case, I know where in my process I need to improve and streamline, or make it less redundant.

How BACKLOGGED Am I with Publishing and Exhibiting My Pen Artworks and Art Photography?

I think my Backlogged Artwork Period is from about 19 June 2017 until the Present. I didn’t count the number of artworks, but it is approximately 30 artworks, and probably 200 photographs.

Tips?!?

1) Work more efficiently.

2) Avoid unproductive distractions.

3) Focus!

4) “Use the Force!”
