How to Use Your Camera (or Smartphone) as a Paintbrush: Impressionistic Photography Techniques — Charles Needle

Unlock your creative potential and discover how to craft impressionistic-looking photographs
using nothing but your digital camera or smartphone. Award-winning fine art photographer
Charles Needle will describe the process of using long-exposure and multiple-exposure
techniques to transform everyday scenes into unimaginable visual masterpieces.

This workshop will begin with a short inspirational slide show, followed by a lecture covering
techniques, such as Long-Exposure Pan/Tilt, “Multiple-Exposure Monet” (a technique Charles
invented), Multiple-Exposure Rotate & Zoom, Soft-Glow Montage and Composite Montage. If
your camera does not have built-in multiple-exposure capability, you can still join this
workshop, because Charles will show you how to use a free script in Photoshop to accomplish
this same look.

Following the short slideshow and lecture, Charles will demonstrate each of these techniques
“live” outdoors (weather permitting) or using special set-ups indoors, and you’ll have an
opportunity to try them yourself with his assistance. If you’re looking for something fresh, new
and creative, then this is the workshop for you!
