Learn to create stunning art from small and large everyday items, by harnessing and learning to ‘paint’ with light. I am running a workshop entirely focused on Light Painting, and I am super excited to offer an entirely focused class.

Learn the basics of Light Painting, with Still Life. Turn everyday items into works of art by using these techniques to create a painterly effect by just using a few simple tools. The technique used to create a "sculptured" or painterly effect, is unlike standard photography, and can be at once simple to learn, but with practice more complex images and scenes can be created. Through the manipulation of light, colours, and shadows, we can make small details stand out and accentuate or alter the look and feel of your subject. It does not necessarily require any specialists tools, but everything required will be supplied, with the exception of camera gear.

Learn to see light in a whole new way, all items for subject, props, lighting and staging are supplied, you only need your camera gear.

This Workshop will cover the basics in lighting sculpting;

  • Creating artistic composition

  • Adding atmosphere

  • Capturing the details

  • Get off Auto - get confident in Manual Mode

  • Learn to harness the light
