Category: Arts & Photography

Description: “Penang Trees – an Abstract Expressionistic Photography Point of View,” by Nawfal Johnson Nur, is a collection of 18 art photographs. This series shows “what else” the trees are – their symbolic meanings based on physical characteristics, which in a larger sense, inspired this project. Nawfal photographed the trees from the viewpoint of a subjective observer wishing to record and design images that exhibit the grand characteristics of trees with their wild and twisting branches and beautiful glowing hues. However, those qualities were just the beginning points to base this series on: Nawfal used those visual cues to design images that more appropriately exemplified his feelings while capturing the photographs. The qualities of having “abundance” and “hope”, are traits that Nawfal believes trees naturally have, and generously give to humankind. This is what Nawfal wanted to show in these abstract images.

FRUSTRATED with Saatchi Online

Not long ago, I wrote to Saatchi Online asking why my perfectly good photo files were not accepted for any Prints for Sale, by their uploading software.

They responded very quickly and I was happy with that.  They explained that photo files must be of certain aspect ratios – one of them was 1:1 – a Square. I believe that photo files must be a minimum of 1500 x 1500 also.  All photos I upload are considerably larger than 1500 x 1500 at 300ppi.  In other words, I make sure that all my files meet and surpass requirements.

Therefore, to make my life easier, I decided to crop some image files to 1:1 so I can upload “acceptable” files to their sales website:  To my Sales Gallery.

Guess what?  Now they have some ridiculous line in their uploading form for DIMENSIONS:  H, W, and D(epth).  Like, OK, get real Saatchi.  Why is dimensions required for print sales?  It makes no sense.  A customer may want a smaller print or larger print – the size may not even be the same as the one I would list.

I UNCHECKED the box that says, I want to sell the original.  That obviously means that I want to sell ONLY PRINTS of my DIGITAL Photo files.  I AM NOT selling original paintings.  Therefore, I was hoping that the DIMENSIONS boxes would be removed from the uploading form – HOWEVER, even with the “I want to sell the original” box UNCHECKED,  I am still required to enter the DIMENSIONS – that is ludicrous.

Yeah, my print at 150ppi is 13.49 x 13.49 x .05  inches (for example)!  What the $hit?  How the hell do I know what the measurement is for DEPTH?  How thick is Photo Luster paper?  How thick is Epson Matte Paper?  Good Grief!  Why would anyone want to know that?  Why am I REQUIRED to put in the DIMENSIONS of photo prints – I don’t even know what it would be.  It is unnecessary information – it is making the artist / photographer’s life more complicated.  I don’t need more complications in my life:  I already have enough – I don’t want any more – thank you very much!

I think I will avoid as much complications and ONLY UPLOAD MY PHOTOS AT IMAGEKIND!  I can throw any size photo at IMAGEKIND and they do the ‘heavy-lifting’ for me.

I don’t care if there is some cropping when Canvas Artwork is printed – it isn’t so much and I don’t have to worry about it.  We, Artists ALREADY HAVE ENOUGH TO THINK ABOUT.  Online Sales Galleries should NOT make our lives more difficult – they should help us make our lives easier.

That’s my 2-cents worth.  I really wanted to give Saatchi another chance – but I’m frustrated with the difficult nature of uploading images.  The numbers should tell me something about who makes life easier for me:  I have almost 700 Art Photographs for sale at   http://nawfalnur.imagekind.com/ , and only 30 images at Saatchi.

I believe I won’t aggravate myself anymore with Saatchi – Maybe it is a great place for other people, but it has not been for me.

*** This is my 503rd Photo-Blog Post! I began my Photo-Blog in April 2005! I was going to mention my 500th Blog Post – but I got carried away with posting and blazed right by it: I’m hearing bells – Ding-Dong-Ding-Dong… Not that this is at all important, but I was hoping to be over 100,000 views by my 500th post, but I am a little short on views to make that goal: I’m at 99,582 views.

I just hope that my photography ‘speaks’ to people, at least in some small way.

Thank you for visiting my photo-blog: I appreciate your seeing my art photography.
