Nawfal Johnson Head Shot and Portraiture Photography

Back to some Photography – Seeing Beyond the Surface

I have missed what my blogging friends have been up to for about the last 7-days.

However, I was not on some fantastic holiday – I wish…oh well, let’s get back to some photography.

SANDSTONE ON CONCRETE – PHOTOGRAPHY

From time-to-time, I design a photograph that I truly believe fits in my TOP 25 PHOTOS I’VE EVER CREATED List.  I did not think this photograph would be on the list when I took it.  After all, it is just a rock on concrete.  However, when I saw the close-up view of this; and I saw the contrast in light, and texture, and cracky-designs; and how I unconsciously arranged the sandstone and camera so that the thin point of the sandstone pointed toward the lower right-corner; and the repeating texture of the background throughout; and how there is a black & white and a color element in this one photograph; and how the eye directly is brought to the colorful sandstone as it stands out against the rough concrete; and how the long-side of the sandstone magically creates an imaginary diagonal line that goes from the upper left-hand corner, to the bottom right-hand corner.  With all of these things happening in this photograph, it quickly was mentally added to my TOP 25 List.

Some people may just see a rock. Au contraire! I see beauty in the design.

Now…what else…?
