An artistic photographer lies in ALL of us
 By Lisa Langell

Register HERE
(DETAILS)

We as photographers often want to be more innovative and creative, but our own mental barriers can “prevent” the creative process from happening. One of the biggest mental blocks is simply believing, “I’m not a very creative person.” I hear this most often from engineers, accountants, and those in technical fields who have struggled to discover the creative style they desire. 
This session breaks down creative barriers in a really fun and logical way! I take an interactive, “myth-busters-style approach!” You’ll learn how to apply the creative process and develop patterns that will bring more joy, innovation, success, creativity and happiness to your photography! You will learn:

  • How even those who feel they “are not artistic” can actually become artistic and creative
  • Understand “imaginative skill” and how it develops
  • About my “Mash up” formula for producing creativity
  • How you can debunk your own myths about artistic and creative ability
  • How to exercise your creativity through real-world examples and activities we will complete during the session
  • Inspirations to take with you

SPECIAL ACTIVITIES

DCC Lock Down Challenge 35

BLUE

Blue is one of the three “Primary Colors” (RGB). It lies between violet and green on the spectrum of visible light. The eye perceives blue when observing light with a dominant wavelength between approximately 450 and 495 nanometers (Wikipedia). Blue has a calming effect on people because we associate blue with trust, strength, and purity. In a photograph, blue can be perceived as a cool hue the tends to recede in a scene. A blue tint can strongly contribute to the mood of an image since it is associated with the feelings of sadness and tranquility.

Your challenge for the week (January 16-23) is to submit 5 or 6 images (1920x1280 pixels) to me, lpetterborg@gmail.com  by midnight (Sat. Jan. 23rd) in which the color BLUE plays the predominant role in the scene. If you succeed, you will be rewarded. As always, have fun!
