LEARN HOW TO TRANSFORM YOUR PHOTOGRAPHS
INTO INCREDIBLE ARTISTIC IMPRESSIONS

Modules 1 - 5 

Photography for so many people is about capturing reality and recording memories, but did you know that it is one of the most exciting mediums in art today?  Still, if you look deeper, you will also realise that a camera and the less-than-perfect photographic system itself are an incredible platform to create brilliant art.
 
In this course, the camera is seen as an instrument of the workbench to create art. Over many years, Martin Osner has developed mixed media and digital techniques that draw out an incredible artistic impression and deliver photographs into a beautiful creative space. Whether he uses the camera in the beginning, during, or at the end of the process does not matter. What matters is that the photographic process's characteristics, both good and poor, are used to deliver the art. The techniques you will learn are creative and unique.

This first set of workshops consists of five modules each comprising of a two-hour class, taught once a week. Classes are presented live over Zoom, and video recordings are shown to demonstrate techniques. Classes are small in size, interactive and workshop orientated where you will learn to transform your photographs into decorative art imagery fit for display and exhibition. Traditional art techniques like oil and acrylic painting, sketching, collaging, montaging, double exposure, and transfers are taught, both with and without digital photo editing. 

These comprehensive workshops do not require in-depth knowledge of photography; rather, it is more important that as a student, you have a desire to learn and explore photography as an alternative creative medium within the framework of art. One can find many a photography course online free, but this course has proved to be worth every cent.

Martin Osner's Fine-Art Photography course is absolutely brilliant and it lifts the scales off your photographic eyes...if anyone would like to have an awe-inspiring, mind-blowing, eye-opening, inspirational, thought-provoking, and soul-searching experience then come on one of these courses because you will never see photography in the same manner again. Apart from being fun, the creativity and methods that Martin uses in his teaching are easy to use and understand and he has a lifetime of knowledge and experience that he freely shares... apart from all of that, both Martin and his lovely, and equally talented daughter Sam, are just such nice people, filled with passion for what they love doing best...teaching, photographing and creating exceptional works of art... I can strongly recommend any of their courses for anyone wanting to learn how to get a little more out of their photographic and artistic passion. For years I have been striving for the perfect photographs... now I am striving for the imperfect photographs...photographs that can turn into works of art...Oh yes...and the learning via Zoom from anywhere in the world is brilliant...it works so well.

SHOWCASE

" I have been enjoying photography for twenty years now and have been actively involved in clubs and salons. A while back I just started losing my excitement for the medium and felt like everything I shot was "same old ... same old"  I booked on the workshop after seeing some pictures that a friend of mine was submitting after she attended Martin Osner's fine art course. My Mojo is back...should have done this a long time ago. Thanks, Martin!"
