B&C LV 2019
FOLLOW YOUR BLISS
Suzette Allen Cr.Photog., CPP, API
Take a journey of discovery to reignite your creativity- to figure out what you truly love to create! Not just what you have always done, or felt expected to do, or what you see others producing. Our passion and delight for photography is rekindled as we are willing to take the journey of self-discovery and introspection and find out what is our “Bliss” or natural creative vein. Get some ideas on how to explore and develop what makes you feel creatively alive!
“In my journey, I learned to give myself permission to create fresh work, to pursue a fresh perspective or approach that inspired me! I focused on “my bliss” which involved photographing flowers, beautiful places and light, painterly enhancements and storytelling, with stills and even some motion (video). What happened was a total shift from stale to innovative, blah to colorful, boring to compelling, and it changed my attitude from avoidance and self-criticism to motivated and creative confidence!”
Join Suzette on the journey of discovering your own Bliss and enjoy some fun, creative projects to create fresh work, and bring a growth spurt in your imaging skills too. You will enjoy a full bouquet of creative ideas, and in the process, learn a little Photoshop, image painting (with handy apps), compositing tools, (to make them believable), creative presentation and even a bit of motion! (video basics). It’s a beautiful time to be creative and develop your visual voice—by finding and following YOUR Bliss!
We will provide everything you need for a fun afternoon, but here are some optional tools to bring:
Bring a camera (or borrow one of our Lumix loaners!)
a tripod is helpful
a macro lens if you have one
a bouquet of flowers if you fancy
(we will be photographing flowers in the HUB studio)
a tablet or iPad for creative image enhancement with apps
Enjoy a creative afternoon with us, learning and then shooting for fun and creativity! Explore fresh ideas and lighting and come away inspired!
