This light painting workshop covers the basic elements required to creatively utilise different light sources to produce a variety of interesting effects.
During the course of the evening you will learn how to construct orb lights and rails and be shown how to use them. Then you'll have time to experiment with different coloured orbs and rails to see how creative you can be! It is anticipated that this workshop will run for 2.5 to 3 hours.
This course requires basic camera knowledge.
- Put your camera into Manual Mode
- Change the ISO
- Change shutter speed to Bulb.
If you are unsure please bring your camera manual with you so we can help you.
Some post-processing of your images may be required in order to balance extreme contrast ranges, otherwise, all lighting effects are produced in-camera. Therefore it would be an advantage if you are able shoot RAW.
- A camera with bulb function
- A tripod (not suitable for Gorillapods)
- A wired shutter release (bulb lock if possible)
You should know how to operate the shutter release, if you just bought it, read the instructions and practice using it before arriving. Infra-red remote, RF remote are not practical for this session.
You may need a spare battery as long exposures eat battery life - and it can be cold out there!
