Light Painting


with Dave Cleaveland

A super fun photography class- light painting, "painting with light" uses long exposures and different light sources to create after dark masterpieces! We will start off with a classroom session, talking about long exposures and going over camera settings. We will learn how to correctly use your tripod, and then we will select our exterior light sources- flashlights, strobes, and even sparklers! For our field trip, we will look for a good subject to use for our light painting, and teach you how to write with light, create ghosts, and paint with light. ***Must have equipment includes a DSLR camera (or a mirrorless camera) and a tripod (the sturdier the better). Bonus if you have a remote shutter release, either wired or wireless. You must be familiar with how to use and change your camera settings. Bring your cameras and tripods to the classroom and we will practice before going into the field.
