In early October I started experimenting with Impressionist Photography. I had read an article by Eva Polak, and had been studying her work for a couple of weeks and thought the Aspens of the Eastern Sierras would be a great place to try some techniques. I tried “movement” and “panning”, and failed brilliantly! When I got home and uploaded my frames I deleted every frame. I also tried defocusing. I kept 2 of those.
I’ve continued to play with the movement technique, but still am not achieving the result I want. I’m having better results defocusing. I used that here in this night city street scene. I’m going to continue to play with the movement technique. Hopefully one day I’ll get it. Landscapes are in my blood, but it has been fun challenging myself to try something new and get out of my “box”. I certainly have a new appreciation for the talent and work of those like Eva Polak, and others who excel in fine art photography.
