Workshop: Introduction to Light Painting Photography

October 17, 2019 @ 6:00 PM - 10:00 PM


Light painting photography is the art form that uses handheld lights to “paint” a scene while the shutter of the camera is left open during a long exposure. By shooting in a dark location and using the photographic technique of long exposure, flashes, streaks, colors, textures, and trails of light are created and captured without post-production work. Exposure times for light paintings can range from just a few seconds to an hour or more.

Required equipment: DSLR camera, tripod, and flashlight. Participants should have knowledge of the camera’s manual settings. Suggested (not required): remote trigger.
