What to bring:
About: Light painting is an exciting and original way to create memorable photographs. Unlike conventional photography that relies on existing light to photograph a scene, light painting puts your camera ‘in the dark’ and only allows it to see what you want it to see. This way of working offers countless possibilities for aspiring photographers. You will have the opportunity to work on location in low light to create unique and memorable images, which can add variety and technical diversity to your portfolio. Peter will be doing a post production demo session before the shoot to help you anticipate the steps involved in finessing the crafted image. There will also be a presentation of Peter’s best images to get you inspired.
