Stretching Your Frame of Mind, Part II

Part two's journey in the four week course will begin with the 'Artist Palette', and a refresher week on implementing those 'elements' into your 'works of art' because if you remember, you're artists, your medium is now a camera, and the canvas is now electronic.

The Use of Gestalt in Photography

In my “Stretching Your Frame of Mind” part I and part II classes I teach fellow photographers how to incorporate the elements of visual design and composition into their photography, and giving each participant their own “Artist Palette” to take with them to use.

In these “Stretching your Frame of mind” classes, I’ve touched on the Theory of Gestalt and how this psychology can help take your photography to what I refer to as “Up a Notch”. In my new course, we work strictly on these six principles in this psychology and how to apply them to create memorable imagery.

The Art of Printing and Selling Your Art

It has been said that the print is the ultimate expression of the photographer’s art. Truly great prints are the result of a convergence between technical excellence and strong artistic vision. Having someone else print your work means relinquishing a portion of the technical and artistic control needed to realize your vision, unless you are prepared to spend hours, or days working collaboratively with a truly good commercial printer. Assuming of course that you can find one willing to take the time to work with you to help you realize your artistic goals.
