Blurs and Unsharp Photography: Guided Play 2016, Plus Post
Week 4 – Compose with your Feet
What a wonderful week this has been in the G+ Mentorship Program for Photographers Blur & Unsharp Photography mentorship led by the tireless and talented Alex Lapidus and his great group of mentors and helpers.
This week we were encouraged to get out there and compose with our feet…get moving and find images that conveyed the motion and told the stories we needed to tell using Moving Point of View, Reflection Blur, and some amazing Multiple Exposure techniques that have really opened up new possibilities in my world of photographic expression.
I can be a bit of a perfectionist in some areas, and I’ve learned that this ingrained trait is a hard one to overcome when trying to simply de-stress and have some FUN. I was one of those kids who enjoyed “Playing School”…I still love to learn new things, but I’m often getting in my own way by rehashing technicalities and worrying over the ‘right’ settings instead of allowing myself creative freedom to tell my stories through images. This week has been nothing less than eye-opening. The revelation that we can use light, motion, tone, and Blur to tell a specific story with our images has ignited in me a fresh desire to continue learning, but to remind myself that’s it is perfectly OK to have a blast while doing so.
If you want to take a journey that will turn your photographic world upside down, inside out, and give you a fresh perspective on the creativity that no doubt lives inside you….consider circling G+ Mentorship Program for Photographers , and sign up for one of their many free, informative, privately guided mentorships. I’m so grateful for all the help I’ve received along this journey, from the CB:BA Mentorship to this one, and all those talented, patient, friendly companions whom I’ve been fortunate to mingle amongst.
I am so looking forward to Week 5! 🙂
