Fine Art Photography Course
TRANSFORM YOUR PHOTOGRAPHS INTO ARTISTIC IMAGES
Getting Started | Lessons 1 - 6 | One Lesson a Week
Photography for so many people is about capturing reality and recording memories. But did you know that photography 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 is an incredible platform to create brilliant art.
On 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 delivers 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 taught are creative and unique.
This first set of workshops (Getting Started) consists of six lessons comprising of two and a half hours, 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 photography into art imagery fit for display and exhibition. Traditional art techniques like oil & 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 explore photography as an alternative creative medium within the framework of art.

How can I get involved with the Big Bear Movement?
" 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 long time ago. Thanks, Martin!"
