Through the Looking Glass, Natural Light Portraits Workshop.

Here we were exploring close-ups using lighting modifiers, which is what gives the white dreamy effect on the right side.

The next Real Shoot Experience workshop is coming in September. If you don't have the basics down yet sign-up first for our fall Photography Basics Course: meganalter.com/classes/

There is a controversy in Street Photography between people who want to photograph the street "undisturbed" and those that want to be part of the action (I'm the second one)

We will be exploring both approaches at this Saturday's Fearless Street Photography Workshop.

After re-examining what I want. My conclusion is that my joy comes from self-expression, continuing to learn new things, and connecting with other creatives. This is the goal of this new event series

IMAGINE YOU REACHED YOUR GOAL..
You have created the best image of your life.. How does it feel?

I have created many technically beautiful photos in my life. With great color and light, sharp focus and good composition. I can teach you how to do this. But what I hope for even more is that you see a reflection of yourself in an image you create and you feel set free by seeing a piece of yourself in your image. A piece that maybe you didn't understand before and gives you a new perspective on your life.

For me, relationships have always been at the center of my life. It was so satisfying and powerful for me to see those struggles and challenges reflected in my Suicide Bride Series. This series makes me feel I have communicated myself.. shared my struggle in some way…

Not only do I want you to take better photos but I want you to feel the satisfaction of expressing yourself creatively.

How would it feel to create something beautiful that you love to look at and expresses something you had inside you, even acting as a mirror to reflect your vision back to you. What is in the photo? I would love to find out.

Lesson 2, Capturing motion. @bruna.amsterdam brings her performing background and experience with POI lights to the studio and transformed the classroom into a night club in these photos by @michelecigna.

I​n every course, ​Michele and I are striving to help each student find their voice. Operating under the mantra, that if your photos are different than others… That’s a good thing! Here's to creating unique images.

Eiad came to the course already aware that he loved high contrast and low key images. He used the long exposure techniques from Lesson 2 of the Photography Basics Course to create this dynamic series.

WHAT'S THE DREAM? THEN YOU KNOW THE CONCEPT..

My favorite shoots are usually born because I got excited about a mental image.

Is there an idea that inspires you at this moment? Something in your dreams that you would like to make real?

This is my current favorite shot from my "Shipwrecked" themed photoshoot with musician Sam Crook.

I used the shot list I give the students in my courses, combined with a light modifier technique I teach in the Natural Light Portraits Workshop.

Here is my mood-board for my recent photo shoot with musician Sam Crook.

In the excitement of preparing for the shoot (where we also filmed a music video), there was a moment that my mind went blank. Then I had to remember what I always tell my students, stick with the theme, get the shot list. I find that I need a theme to narrow down the possibilities. A container for my ideas. I need a box before I can think outside of the box.

In lesson 4 of the Photography Basics Course, we do an exercise "recreating a photo". It's the first step in understanding how to use a moodboard to inspire a new image. And that's what it always ends up being, a new image, a jumping off point for creating something new.

I feel so lucky every year to host so many groups of great people. I think it’s because everyone is there because they want to have fun and learn that our students are so great and motivated. Michele & I thank everyone who came through our doors in the last two crazy years and gave it their all.. It was a pleasure.

Looking forward to more in 2022 🎊

As a very future oriented person, I sometimes forget to stop, acknowledge and celebrate the things I’ve accomplished before moving on to my next goal. But this is such an important step.

I invite you to review what you already know, about your photo strengths, about the photos that make you excited, what do they have in common? What’s the best photo you took this year? What did you do right in that image?

Next year, we will talk about where we want to go next. 😉✨

September is for going back to school! I have updated this article about creative courses in Amsterdam. Unfortunately, some of the schools had to close their doors permanently, after the pandemic closed them temporarily :( But there are many who are still standing, some offering now only online classes, others in their studio.
