About the Event

This event will take place outdoors but we will use the Village Hall as a base. In the event of bad weather we could try it indoors with the lights off !!

Painting with light is a popular photographic activity mostly because it  is fairly easy to achieve great results, requires little specialist  equipment and you can get some really interesting results.

you will need:

  • A camera with manual or bulb exposure control - to achieve the long shutter speeds necessary.
  • A sturdy tripod or sit your camera on a sturdy surface - the exposure will be measured in seconds so handholding is ruled out
  • A light source - this can be a wireless flash,  torch, led tubes, anything that emits a bright light, the more  variations in size and colour the better
  • Other useful items - a cable release, extra batteries
  • A dark place or scene - can be indoors or out

Please RSVP to let us know your coming.
