Light painting is cool. Painting with fire is even more so. During this outing we will be doing both with a heavy leaning towards things that burn.

Part one: The class will start with a talk on the basics of light painting. We’ll cover the tools and methods you’ll need. Where the tools are custom-built, we’ll show you how to make your own, and how to blend these tools with props to get the perfect image. We will talk about the ideal camera settings to have, what happens when you change the settings in your camera, and what not to do.

Part two: We will show a few example photos and discuss how to replicate those as an instructor lead tutorial.

Optional Part Three: Time for you to let your imagination run wild. If any member of the group has a specific photo they would like to replicate then this is moment we’ll all give it our best shot.

This field outing is for anyone that is interested in lighting painting, new to fire painting or wants to learn more about the art of light painting or wants to learn more about their camera and exposing at night.
