The valuable thing that I learned from this assignment was how important it is to think about exactly what I want to achieve with my image that I want to make. To plan it from the top down, to envision it in my mind, from the mood I want to portray to the light, line, colour, camera technique to use, image format, and so on. I imagine it is like the process a painter would go through when planning a painting! It is quite challenging but very powerful.

REQUIREMENTS

A good understanding of photographic craft and your camera. You’ll need to know the fundamentals – i.e., how your camera works, and a working knowledge of f/stops, shutter speed, ISO, etc.

Whatever equipment you have will be fine, but you need a camera with manual control of the aperture and shutter speed.

I had a wonderful time chasing the light and discovering many kinds of light! More differences between the types of light and how this can affect the creativity of making photos day by day and from one moment to the next moment! I can say: light is the most inspiring element! I see the world of creativity is getting wider and deeper beyond the subjects and techniques! I saw how the light can invite me to the subject or lead my eyes to travel to another subject.

Colour is something that I feel personally I needed to understand better, and this week took me through the “rabbit hole” to the beginning of understanding how we see and measure colour to process an emotional experience for the photographer and the viewer. I started to notice how we as a society use colour in EVERYTHING ­ nature, advertising and art. Eva, I must say I am enjoying your classes immensely and don’t want this to end. You are definitely giving us an opportunity to see our work in a whole new way. Thank you

I discovered that there were many possibilities for lines in my photo­ shoot. One of my goals was to create stronger photographs this time, and I think seeing the “lines” helped me to develop stronger compositions. Thank you

Section 1Welcome To The CourseFree Preview

Welcome to my online workshop, “Impressionist Photography Advanced”. I’m delighted to share this time with you.

By deciding to take this step, you will be expanding your artistic horizons and opening up a myriad of creative possibilities – of new ways of making photographs and expressing yourself. Together we are going to take a journey of discovery – of seeing things beyond the obvious.
To get the most out of this workshop you should be prepared to put in the effort to practice. Set aside sometime every day to do assignments and exercises. As I present each aspect of every subject covered in this course, try to make time for a mini photoshoot to get a deeper understanding. I think it will be easier as well to absorb all your new knowledge that way.

It is very important to connect with your feelings and emotions during this workshop. Each day try to bring moments of quiet into your life. This could be a time when you have your daily cup of coffee or tea, or just before you go to bed. Empty your mind of the day’s events and activities and focus on a single thing, such as your breathing. Feel your breath. Connect with your inner artist.

During this workshop, experiment, enjoy, keep working, embrace accidents and mistakes and trust yourself. Most assignments will have a creative and technical aspect to them. Take your time doing your exercises, be patient and persistent. I hope you will have some accidental discoveries that will inspire you to use the techniques presented here in a new way. Remember, the more time you spend with your photography, the more your skills with improve, your own vision will emerge, and your images will become uniquely yours.

Be prepared for some frustration. That’s okay – I didn’t learn this overnight, and neither will you. Impressionist photography takes time and effort.

Keep and review the work that you produce. Tracking your progress is a great learning tool. Watching your own evolution – of styles, interest, approaches and favourites – is interesting as well. You may even rediscover or develop your own new techniques (happens to me all the time).

If you do not have a visual journal, I encourage you to start now. Visual journaling is one of the most powerful tools I know to gain insight, solve problems, and explore new ideas without the pressure to produce a product or something that has to look good or make sense to others.
