Rescheduled - Painting with Light

  • Jul 13, 2013 · 8:30 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

If you have never painted with light this is the event to come to. This is going to cover the basics of light painting. I'll show you the various tools used and how to use them. Painting uses flashlights as the means to lighting your subject. It's fun and very easy to create great images. We'll begin with simple still subjects and move to lighting people.

Plan to meet at the bottom of the pavilion steps at 8:30pm sharp. We will introduce all the people present so we can put faces to names. While we wait for the sun to go down I have a few fun surprises planned which are simple and fast to shoot. These images will will have everyone asking "how did you do that"

Required equipment is your camera, shutter release, tripod and any type of flashlights you have. You will not be able to hand hold your camera for this shoot.

This Meetup is free to all.

All skill levels are welcome.

Main results is to have fun and learn some creative photography

    Make sure you know how to place your camera in MANUAL mode and switch off auto focus. It is required to shoot in manual mode.

    I was asked if there is a phone number they can call if lost. I don't own a cell phone so I don't have a number. If you can't find the pavilion, go to the gardens and look for several photographers with cameras and tripods standing around.
