I love using the computer to create art from my photography. As someone that cannot draw a crooked line this is an especially entertaining way for me to be a bit more creative with my photography. I know from the feedback I get that this is one of those I love that or I have that thing with very few people falling in between. I do love it and I do sometimes go out to photograph with the express purpose of finding something to paint.
I use several different programs to create this artwork, my current darling though is Topaz Labs new program called Impression. I’ve already written about a couple of times and so I won’t bore you again. Suffice to say it is easy and engages my inner child with all of the controls and such.

Creative Photography Workshops
I teach a workshop called The Art of Creative Photography and if creating art from your photographs is something that you find appealing then perhaps this is a workshop that you’d enjoy. If you live in the Pacific Northwest this is a workshop that can be done most anytime and with just about any number of clients. You can find out more on my Wildlife, Nature and Creative Photography Workshops website…HERE.

If you’d like to give the Impression a try you can get a 30 day trial on their website…HERE. If you want to buy it you can use the code JEFF15 for a spiffy 15% discount courtesy of my friends at Topaz Labs. I’m not paid by Topaz Labs, but I am a beta tester for Topaz Labs products.
