Dramatic Light: Impressionist Landscape
Challenge has finished
The arrival of the camera on the art scene caused some, including poet Baudelaire, to decry the eventual death of painting. One group of artists rebelled by creating a whole new type of art: impressionism. The camera, they realized, could only capture reality, while the artist could record impressions and feelings. Advanced photo editing techniques allow modern photographers to create impressionistic work as well. Start by examining the work of early impressionists. Find a suitable landscape (one of the most popular subjects). Use a mix of techniques to make an impressionistic version, but don't rely on automated filters (go hands-on!). Briefly describe how you created the look. (Note the rules!) NOTE TO VOTERS: You really need to evaluate these images at normal or large size. The thumbnail view does these images no justice.
