Hi Everyone! Welcome to October! This is an exciting challenge as I am joining hundreds of other bloggers for a 31 day series. Each blogger chooses a topic to write on for 31 days straight. My topic is 31 days Inspired by Impressionism. There will be some movies to watch, music to listen, inspirational quotes, some challenges and of course plenty of impressionist photography.
Impressionism means taking inspiration directly from nature, trusting your senses rather than what you think you know. Michael McClure
For me the guideline for impressionistic approach is to free your mind from what you think you know about your subject and respond to purely visual sensations of colour and light.
How well do you know and understand Impressionism?
Watch this movie to find out.
When looking at impressionist paintings:
How does they make you feel?
Is there a way you can use your camera to create some of that feeling in your own work?
What do you see in impressionist work that is missing in your own work?
Please share with me your thoughts and ideas!
This is the 1st post in a 31 Day Series: 31 Days Inspired by Impressionism.
Bloggers from around the world are joining in writing a 31 Day series, find a few that interest you and check them out.
