Painting with light at Wickford AA -- October 30, 2017

I've always said, "Light is the secret sauce that makes a picture come alive." 

And light painting is that delicious photography sauce! It is is the creative use of handheld lights to paint and/or draw in a darkened environment while the shutter of your camera is left open during a long exposure. By shooting at night or in the dark while using an exposure of somewhere between 15 seconds to 15 minutes depending on the subject, and combining it with a variety of painting tools and modifiers, beautiful images will magically appear in your viewfinder.

In our three hour workshop we will paint a variety of subjects, large and small. We will use a different light sources, and different painting techniques for each. This is a hands-on, fun workshop that will get your creative juices flowing.
