I believe everyone has an artist inside them, waiting to come out. As photographers, we create art that is so meaningful and will touch the lives and hearts of so many for generations to come. Some photographers create their work very traditional, some are very modern, and some are very artistic. I believe the best works I have seen contain a little of all three.
Mindset is the key. Sometimes we are so focused on the technical aspect, that we forget to add in the artistic, the personal, the emotion. Don't get me wrong... technical is mandatory. We must know our craft and be confident in what we do so that we can be free to add in the rest.
Some of us, myself included, are off the charts right brained. We live in the creative, fun, fly by the seat of your pants mindset. While others are more left brained... you like rules, you read the camera manual, you are beyond organized and have to have a plan. Of course, there are those of you who seem to have it all together and are a good mixture of both. One isn't necessarily better than the other, just different.
In this class we will discuss how to become more artistic, how to see things from a different view. We will learn different ways to get your creativity flowing and where to look for inspiration beyond photography as well as learning some great photoshop tips, tricks, blending and creating beautiful art pieces in photoshop.
Join me in walking through the process I use from the first thought to the final detail and learn how to bring to light, your artist within.
