Reflections . . .

_rjz02614-copy

I recently had the pleasure of viewing the current art exhibition at the Kimball Art Museum, Monet: The Early Years.  The exhibition includes paintings that concentrate on the first phase of Claude Monet’s illustrative career.  The young genius was well on his way in artistic development and imagination as is evident by the caliber of the paintings.

I was most captivated with Monet’s paintings of water and reflections given my own enjoyment of capturing reflections with my camera.  Monet’s obsession with the painting of water and reflections was apparent by his keen ability to capture its many changing effects and moods.  Something I can truly appreciate as the slightest change in your camera position or the wind on the surface of the water can produce a profound change in your image.

I would like to believe Monet would have appreciated the photograph that you see.  It is a reflection of a stone building on a meandering stream.  Captured during a partly sunny morning using a Nikon D810 camera with a Nikon 300mm f4 Phase Fresnel lens.  Exposure was f10 @1/25 second; which was slow enough to allow the ripples on the water to create the intent I desired.

_RJZ00552 ©Randy Ziegler

Good composition is the photographer’s creative pathway to make powerful photographs that will stand the test of time.  During this workshop, our time will be dedicated to exploring the visual foundation for creating images with stopping power and emotional impact.

Through lively class discussions, image presentation, and personal critiques of student’s class photo assignment, Randy will bring to light the creative use of composition and perspective in color photography.  We will learn the art of seeing from the camera’s perspective and how it is different from our visual reality.  Some of the topics covered in this workshop will include: light, color, framing, positive/negative space, harmony and balance, pattern, motion, line, form, and texture.  We will also explore the essential of using gesture to add life and a sense of movement in your images.

Includes light appetizers and refreshments on Friday evening.
