We will be based in Russell, in the historic Bay of Islands which offers the perfect place for artistic photography with beautiful coastlines, waterfalls, and historic sites.
With artistic photographers Gail Stent and Judy Stokes as your tutors, this 4-day Impression Masterclass allows you to enjoy the best of the Bay of Islands coastal scenery while embarking on a creative adventure with your photography. In this masterclass, you will learn to bring freedom of expression and capture emotion in your photography by using creative techniques both in-camera and in post-production. You will learn a style of photography that seeks to capture a mood and experience rather than to achieve an accurate representation of the scenes. Capturing Impressionistic photographs requires the use of imagination and creativity to create your own personal style to create artistic, painterly images, by joining this workshop you’ll be guided through advanced techniques in the use of ICM (Intentional Camera Movement), In-Camera Multiple Exposures along with abstract photography techniques. Learn how to take compelling Impression photographs followed by the art of post-production, adding another layer to the creative process.
Capture to Print Masterclass Workshop: Our Impression Masterclass is designed to perfect the techniques of Multiple Exposures and ICM (Intentional Camera Movement); with dedicated tuition sessions and notes on these subjects. The workshop concludes with processing & printing two of your best images as 13x19" fine art prints.
