The wonderful thing about impressionist photography is the freedom that it gives you. There is no right or wrong way to create these images, just guidelines. Also, there is no need for expensive lenses or special equipment; you only need a camera with manual control settings.
To find interesting images, we often need to look for them – carefully, creatively and thoughtfully. From the choice of subject matter to the use of appropriate techniques, there are many factors that contribute to the success of impressionist photography. You not only need to master techniques, but also the use of light, colour, lines and shapes. The last essential ingredient that you need, to elevate your images from good to great, is expression. Actually, the fundamental building blocks of images go hand in hand with expression, because they allow the viewer to read and feel the photograph’s mood.
As a photographer and artist you see things in nature that others don’t. Very often when I look a the world , the artist within me sees things that evoke an emotional response. This response is the the seed of inspiration, motivating me to share my passion in impressionist photography. I’m never satisfied with documenting things that everyone can see in an ordinary way. I’d much rather take my uniquely personal vision of the world and express it in my photographs.
Close-up and macro photography are two of the most challenging forms of photography, yet potentially the most exciting and rewarding, often revealing stunning patterns, textures, colours, and details unseen by the naked eye.
The choice of lens and other accessories is critical, and this free e-book will examine what you need for this type of photography.
