Tues June 1@7pm-Award-winning photographer and trainer Mollie Isaacs–ABSTRACTS WITH IMPACT
Join Mollie for a journey into the creativity and excitement of Abstract Photography. Abstracts are the poetry of photography. It allows you to soar to new heights and discover new pathways to enhance your photographic skills. Abstracts allow you to incorporate line, shape, form, and color to create images that are unique and artistic. And it allows you to be completely free of rules or restrictions.
This program will show you how to find abstract subjects, plus how to create beautiful images from ordinary things you see every day. You will be taken step-by-step through the creative process. You will see the basic scene or subject, and then the resulting abstract image. You will learn how to find abstract subjects in a variety of subjects including cars, water, birds, flowers, landscapes, glassware, and more.
