Impressionist Photography

posted in: Photography | 4

Just less than two years ago Pep Ventosa inspired me with his work. I was fascinated by his 'unique view on the world' through impressionist photography. Furthermore I discovered the photo impressionist blog by Stephen D'Agostino. Accordingly I wanted to try something similar with flowers. So much so that my Still in Motion contemporary impressionist photography project began.

Dancing in the Wind


There was so much excitement among the students in the 2014 G+ Blur and Unsharp Photography Mentorship when I shared my first results. When the mentorship finished for the year I shared my work with the public. As a result it caused a bit of a stir in photo communities such as G+ and Flickr.


That's a bit of an understatement as my inbox was full of inquiries. Moreover it became such a popular topic of conversation. Consequently we had to have a week of assignments in the subsequent 2015 and 2016 mentorships. Ever since I've seen so many others emulate this style with their own floral art.


I created the 'Dancing in the wind' montage series with pink anemone flowers in 2015. Anemone blanda flowers have such character and appeal in front of the camera.


The flowers ...well they're called winter windflowers after all!


This style tries to evoke the movement these pretty flowers make as they get tossed about in the wind in the late winter and early spring days.

High Key Impressionist Photography


So for 2016 I created some high key images of the Anemone 'Blue Shades'. Eventually these will have some textures added but for now I'm happy to leave them as they are.
