#BehindtheLens

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.

“The squeaky WordPress gets the Grease!”

Would someone please get WordPress some WD40!

THE GREATEST GIFT YOU CAN GIVE YOURSELF AS A PHOTOGRAPHER

So, what is one of the GREATEST GIFTS you can give yourself as a Photographer?

☆ No…it is not a new fancy expensive camera!

The “greatest” gift you can give yourself as a Photographer is actually FREE! YES, FREE! But, it is a bit difficult to use without the skills to use it.

☆ The Answer: The ability and skill to edit out, and trash, ALL of your Crap-Photos!”


Yes, you read correctly—Your Ability and Willingness to Trash Your Sucky Photos is one of the best photography skills you should give to yourself (learn)!

You are doing yourselves a disservice if you do not learn and stick by this priceless skill of editing your photos like a beast! You will also be doing your part as a Green Photographer, by not polluting the overpopulated country known as InternetPhotoLand, with photo-garbage. Everyone should do their part, but so few seem responsible enough.


So, if you were hoping I was going to say, go out and gift yourself a new camera, no, that’s not the answer to horrible photography.

Here’s what you can do:

1) Learn to take good photographs with whatever equipment you have now. That means, learn the basics, train your eye to see more interesting subjects, learn to compose better in the frame, and learn about lighting.

2) When you are editing your images, be an Editing Beast! If the photo is not in-focus, not composed well, has HORRIBLE lighting, is BORING, and any other number of minus-qualities, then trash it and move along. Editing software can save some poor images, but it is better to start with a pretty good image to begin with, and then tweak it to your desired results.

There are simply too many bad and boring photos out there, so why settle by adding more to that depository. Instead, be a better Photographer….Take better photographs.

So there….

A few of my thoughts on a great gift to give yourself if you are a Photographer.

ABSTRACT EXPRESSIONISM PHOTOGRAPHY Series:

I have over 85 Photography Series. I consider myself an Abstract Expressionism Photographist, and I have photographed in this style for 20 or more years. Believe it or not, up until just recently (mid-2018), I had not created an Abstract Expressionism Photography Series—In a way, that seems completely ludicrous to me!

Typically, all of my Abstract Expressionism photographic artworks have been designed for other photography series, so I guess I never thought there was a need for a photo series called, “Abstract Expressionism Photography”.

However, with my work titled, “Descent into Tartarus” (2018), I had no collections that were specifically appropriate for that artwork. And after searching my many series, I could not find one titled, Abstract Expressionism Photography! Therefore, that is how this series came into existence. It was a process of discovery: I discovered that I needed an “Abstract Expressionism Photography” series.

Anyone who follows my work will know that Jackson Pollock is my main artistic influence. Thus, my Abstract Expressionism Photography artworks are in the fashion of All-Over Painting, and my works are full of chaos, action, dynamic colours, and design.

Pure Evil Smoke Art Photography Artwork, and my New Color Name, PURE EVIL

Color Code: #D31C34 is “PURE EVIL”! It’s not Pure Evil, it is just the Unofficial Name I have given that Hex Color Code.



Title: “Pure Evil”.

Creation Date of the Naming for Color, ‘Pure Evil’: 16 February 2019.

Genres: Abstract Photography. Smoke Art Photography.

———

Artist’s Note:

“This work, “Pure Evil”, is now in two of my art photography series: ‘Colour-Dominance’, and originally in ‘Ethereal Dreams and Nightmares’. It fits in too well with the ‘Colour-Dominance’ series to leave it out. Plus, I wanted to unofficially name a specific colour (specific Hex Color #); and thus, I do here by name Hex Color Code #D31C34 is “PURE EVIL”!”

“The other reason that this Smoke Art Photography artwork is titled, “Pure Evil,” is because the Demonic Pareidolia Face, just below-dead-center in this work is one of the most EVIL faces ever to appear in any of my Smoke Art or Fire Portraits images.”

NEW Abstract Color Field Photography Work in My Colour-Dominance Series called Vesuvius

Title: “Vesuvius”.

Creation Date: 05 February 2019.

Copyright 2019 Nawfal Johnson

All Rights Reserved.

Penang, Malaysia

———

Genre: Abstract Colour (Color) Field Photography.

———

Artist’s Note:

“This is the first work in the “Colour-Dominance” Series to have two distinct fields; although, both fields have similar colour gradations—the dark orange Vesuvius colour—it has a distinct hot magma/lava glow to it.”

———
Series Description:

“Colour-Dominance” is an Abstract Photography Series that comprises images of abstractions, and the titles reflect the dominant colour of each art piece. These works are highly influenced by, and inspired by my appreciation for Mark Rothko’s great Color Field artworks. Rothko is the second most influential artist for me in my own abstract photography artwork—Pollock is first.

Manila Palm Fruits & Storm

Title: “Manila Palm Fruits & Storm”.

Creation Date: 15 January 2019.

Series: Environmental Still Life Photography.

Series Years: 2017-2019 (On-going).

Copyright 2019 Nawfal Johnson

All Rights Reserved.


Photographer’s Statement:

“I actually had to take this Manila Palm Tree photograph from an open window, it provided the proper height and faced the stormy grey sky that perfectly framed the background. Fill-flash was necessary to give details to the fruits and show the green and red colours. In a shot like this, it is necessary to make the subject a little brighter than the background or the subject will blend into the background and not be very interesting—Thus, a +.5 to +1.0 fill boost was added to bring out the colours and details of the subject.”

Adonidia is a genus of flowering plants in the family Arecaceae.
