Crea­ti­ve pho­to­gra­phy & Chi­ne­se ele­ments

Pho­to­gra­phy Ex­hi­bi­ti­on of Feng Xia­o­hui and her stu­dents

The 28 pho­tos by tea­cher Feng Xia­o­hui and her stu­dents ex­hi­bi­ted here are of three ca­te­go­ries: crea­ti­ve por­traits, flowers and ar­chi­tec­tures.

All pho­tos were first con­cep­tua­li­zed and crea­ted with Chi­ne­se ele­ments, then shot with mul­ti­ple ex­po­sure tech­ni­que. Its spe­cial ma­gni­ficent ef­fect suc­cess­ful­ly re­flec­ts the broad and rich Chi­ne­se tra­di­tio­nal cul­tu­re.

Crea­ti­ve pho­to­gra­phy – Chi­ne­se ele­ments and Münsin­gen

Pho­to­gra­pher Feng Xia­o­hui be­gan to ex­plo­re mul­ti­ple ex­po­sure tech­ni­ques sin­ce 2004 when she tran­sited from film era into di­gi­tal image time. The brand new tech­ni­que of mul­ti­ple ex­po­sure makes Feng Xia­o­hui much more skill­ful in shoo­ting eit­her crea­ti­ve por­traits, flowers and land­s­cape, or do­cu­men­ta­ries and ar­chi­tec­tures, etc. She suc­cess­ful­ly de­mons­tra­ted us a mi­ra­cu­lous world and the­re­af­ter for many times won awards and hold ex­hi­bi­ti­ons at home and ab­road.

To meet the many pho­to­gra­phy lo­vers’ need to learn mul­ti­ple ex­po­sure tech­ni­que, im­pro­ve their skills and wi­despread pho­to­gra­phy know­ledge and theo­ry, Bei­jing Zhong Yi Pho­to­gra­phy Edu­ca­ti­on School set up "Xia­o­hui Crea­ti­ve Vi­su­al Pho­to­gra­phy Work­shop” in 2013, which re­cruits about 10 stu­dents to learn for 7 days each time. Till now, the­re are 11 clas­ses are com­ple­ted and more than 100 stu­dents trai­ned.

At the in­vi­ta­ti­on of Pho­to Münsin­gen, Feng Xia­o­hui feels ho­no­red and gra­te­ful to put 28 of their works on dis­play here, which are re­gar­ded as the crystal­li­za­ti­on of their crea­ti­vi­ty. This is a re­por­ting ex­hi­bi­ti­on of Feng Xiaohui’s prac­tice on mul­ti­ple ex­po­sure tech­ni­que ex­plo­ra­ti­on and edu­ca­ti­on. This is also a va­lu­able op­por­tu­ni­ty for Feng Xia­o­hui and her stu­dents to com­mu­ni­ca­te with and learn from their col­leagues ab­road.

The ex­hi­bi­ti­on is en­t­it­led as "A Na­tio­nal Be­au­ty" and the pho­tos are of crea­ti­ve pho­to­gra­phy, which can be di­vi­ded into three ca­te­go­ries of crea­ti­ve por­traits, flowers and ar­chi­tec­tures. To take this kind of pic­tures, one needs first ful­ly un­der­stand as well as know how to use Chi­ne­se ele­ments, such as: an­ci­ent ar­chi­tec­tures, cal­li­gra­phy, car­ved se­als, Chi­ne­se knots, Qin Han bricks & Han eave ti­les, Pe­king ope­ra masks, shadow pup­pets, Chi­ne­se porce­lain, Han Dy­nas­ty bam­boo slips, ora­cle bo­nes, the scholar’s four trea­su­res (ink-slab, wri­ting brush, art pa­per, ink-stick), etc. and then to ad­opt mul­ti­ple ex­po­sure tech­ni­ques to shoot.

Each time when lea­ding her stu­dents to crea­te a work, Feng Xia­o­hui first­ly choo­ses a the­me, and se­cond­ly, tells the stu­dents in de­tail about pre-shoo­ting ima­gi­na­ti­on, ar­tis­tic de­sign, ligh­t­ing, etc. , asks stu­dents to fa­mi­lia­ri­ze with the cha­rac­ters and sce­ne­ry , find out and catch the best mo­ment of in­ner emo­ti­on ex­pres­si­on in or­der to get hold of a sa­tis­fy­ing work. The who­le filming pro­cess is just a sys­te­ma­tic pro­ject of crea­ti­ve thin­king and ide­as, de­signs and tech­ni­ques, la­ter-pro­ces­sing co­lor con­trol and out­put.

Fa­cing an ex­ten­si­ve and pro­found tra­di­tio­nal cul­tu­re, rich and co­lor­ful he­ri­ta­ge of histo­ry, Feng Xia­o­hui found by using mul­ti­ple ex­po­sure tech­ni­ques, she could break through the in­si­pid de­scrip­ti­on, sta­re at the vi­su­al ele­ments. This is one of the ways that Feng Xia­o­hui and her stu­dents to se­arch out the great­ness of life in the crea­ti­ve de­sign, and to shi­ne the light of hu­man na­tu­re through mind con­nec­tion.

Fi­nal­ly, thanks again in­vi­ta­ti­on of Pho­to Münsin­gen. We wish you a gre­at suc­cess!
