Art Workshop: Night Photography—Using Your Camera to Draw with Light

Rancho Mirage
Past Event

Participants will unlock their creativity, taking their photography to a new place in this one-night workshop. Participants will create imaginative and exploratory photographs with the use of photography techniques of light painting and light drawing, in which images are made using long shutter speeds and a hand-held light source (such as a flashlight to create the exposure). From Ansel Adams to Pablo Picasso, these seemingly magical techniques have long inspired photographers and artists alike with their ability make visible the invisible and play with time.

Materials: Participants will need a tripod, a flashlight and a digital camera that is able to shoot on manual mode. Smartphones or automatic cameras will not work for this technique. Please attend knowing how to use your camera's basic functions. For point and shoot, mirrorless, or DSLR cameras, bringing your camera's manual is a good idea. Small LED flashlights commonly available at discount stores or pharmacies work great.
