What you are going to learn

Introduction to Impressionist Photography

Topics included: What is Impressionist Photography? Pictorialism - a bit of history

I loved your first lesson: I loved the history of Pictorialism and learning about the early photographers. Oh to capture photographs like that! And I loved your assignment because I learned something very, very important. That is, when I 'feel', something happens in my images. I believe that feeling comes through! And because they are my feelings coming through in my images, I do not need to be anxious about what other people think, as I have been in the past. I have found a new confidence. Thank you, Eva!

Learning to see beyond the subject

Topics included: What do you see when you open your eyes and really look? Find the essence of your subject.

Everything in life shuld be as joyful as discovering that one can make new art, in new ways, with renewed enthusiasm. And I thank you for all that you have given me, us and the photographic artist still unknown to you.

Techniques 1 - using filters

Topics included: Using Vaseline, Reflections, Multiple exposures, Other possibilities.

I must congratulate you on your generosity with information on techniques etc. It is opening a whole new dimension beyond my experiences.
Robin Ormerod

Techniques 2 - using aperture

Topics included: Defocusing, Selective focus, Using Bokeh, Mirror lens.

The most important thing that I've learned about these techniques is that I have to think more about thecomposition, concentrate on what I'm doing, and remember after any mistake what I did to avoid it in the next photo.

Techniques 3 - using shutter speed

Topics included: Panning technique 1, Panning technique 2, Zoom burst, Beyond 1sec., Camera movement, Long exposures/movement.

Once again, I thoroughly enjoyed this lesson and the accompanying assignment. I found it an extremely useful task to begin, this time, with a subject of interest, to feel and to see, and then to decide how to capture those feelings with one of the techniques you have provided us with.

Making the most of your creative skills

Topics included: Finding the sweet spot of creativity, Tips for your photo-shoots, Final notes for your artistic journey.

What I have enjoyed about this course is seeing other work and the fact that setting specific tasks has taken me way out of anything I have done before and pushing myself to do better.
