Photo Impressionism

Using in-camera techniques, I’ve been experimenting with Photo Impressionism.  I visited the Art Institute and immersed myself in the paintings of Monet and Renoir, among others.  Reducing what I see to the basic shapes, light and color gives the impression , the basics, of what I see.

My current project is looking at trees; the light, the color and the shape of trees, using the in-camera technique of panning with a slow shutter speed.  There are more techniques to try and to master, such as multiple exposures, special lenses like the LensBaby, double exposures and focusing through something else.  I’m looking forward to what Spring will offer in the color palette as well.

I’d love to hear your feedback on this new art form!
