Light painting, or light drawing, is a photographic technique in which exposures are made by moving a hand-held light source while taking a long exposure photograph, either to illuminate a subject or to shine a point of light directly at the camera, or by moving the camera itself during exposure. The technique is used for both scientific and artistic purposes, as well as in commercial photography. Light painting has long inspired photographers with the technique capturing a moving light source while taking a long exposure photograph which is difficult to perfect but can produce exciting results.
Ron will talk about how he became interested in Lighting Painting, the tools necessary to accomplish this inventive technique, and how to process the images once they have been taken. After explaining the process, Ron will do a demonstration using still art so we can see the process from start to finish.
SPEAKER'S BIO: Ron's primary business has been Team and Individual Photography at High school and middle schools with some emphasis on Senior Photography and Family portraits. After taking John Hartman's class on Light Painting two years ago, he has become fascinated with Painting with Light. We hope you enjoy this really unique process!
