For the third part of our winter program, this is an instructional and technical program to introduce photographers to light painting and light drawing by our own organizers Jürgen Lobert and Lisa Ryan. This lecture is free to paid members. Adding artificial light to photos taken at night can be done through a number of techniques. Light painting adds additional light to existing surfaces, but light drawing is one of the few techniques where a photographer can actively create unique and intriguing content, rather than simply photographing existing objects. The following topics are covered: * Introduction to light painting equipment & settings * Trigonometry for photographers: the exposure triangle * Capturing time so you can spend it on painting * Adding light - Exposure considerations and the square root paradigm - Angles: how geometry creates intrigue - Buy or do it yourself: the light painter’s toolbox (demo) * Light Painting: How to convert a flashlight into a paint brush * Light Drawing: Unleash your artistic side * The three secret techniques for how to master light painting and drawing. * Post-processing considerations * Resources Throughout the presentation, Jürgen and Lisa will demonstrate a number of light painting tools, show how to use them and how they look like in the many visual examples. We will do some live demos with camera and display. Please be on time and count on rush hour traffic.
