    Macro Photography is a uniquely complex and fascinating area of photography. It allows your mind to wander and your creativity to flow unobstructed. All you need to understand are the basic building blocks of good visual design. During this Zoom session Monica will introduce us to her world and process of how she Makes Mysterious!!


    Bring your imagination and questions, to learn how to make the common, uncommon and unique.

    Monica Royal’s obsession with macro started, like many others, with water on flowers and quickly grew to advanced abstract image design.  She especially enjoys photographing ordinary objects and making them completely unrecognizable.  “It makes for some really fun conversations!”

    In this workshop we will play - a lot!  This is the very thing that is missing in the pursuit of breathtaking artwork.  I will be showing examples of what makes good macro images and then what it takes to make even better macro images! It’s the little things that matter.(pun intended). If you think you have a solid grasp of macro I guarantee that in this workshop you will still learn new things. 


     I’ll share all of my secrets for making those pesky little water drops hang off of flower petals and I’ll demonstrate why their placement in the composition is so critical. I’ll also explain how to photograph junk in such a way that you could sell it for thousands of dollars!

    CREATING FROM YOUR SHADOW SELF


    A full day with

    Arthur Levi Rainville, M.Photog., Cr., CPP, API 


    There’s so much more to you.  Hidden secrets waiting for their awakening… to make authentic work, take your efforts to a unique, marketable niche.  Join our profession’s resident sage, Arthur Levi Rainville for a program unlike any other.  Yes, you need the classical skills of lighting, posing, composing, the contemporary marketing and business essentials.  But to grow to a place that you can tout as your own, rise above the masses, please yourself…you need to journey within.


    Arthur has been touting the Art & Heart message for 50 years to image makers across the country.  But everything that’s old is new again… he’ll trot out an un-state-of-the-art approach to creating that the world can’t do on their cell phones. He’ll share thoughts from his forthcoming book; KenZen – the Art of Reflective Creating…innovative concepts for making more personal, rarified work.  From Primal Aesthetics to soul-searching connectivity skills, he will share an array of neo-digital era impressions. We will delve into the realm of IsolationismPith RealismSuggestivismand Invisibilism…all will add an eloquent dimension to any photography.  In live sessions, Arthur will explore the alchemy of Sfumato atmospheric lighting, the soul of Tenebrism, and the later sophistication of Tonalism.  And he’ll demonstrate the photojournalistic dégagé approach of subject connection.  Emotional highs, shaking lows, this program will charge your creative spirit like no other.

    In the After-Glow session, Arthur will engage us in a Question/Answer Push-Me-Pull-You of ideas that are relevant, meaningful to just you.  Be Prepared !  You WILL leave this day changed forever.
