4-HOUR LIGHT PAINTING WORKSHOP.   NEXT DATE: August 14, 2020  •  $225 CD

The final image of this shack is made of 11 different blended images


This photography workshop is all about capturing the beauty of the night in vibrant colour. What is often drab and lackluster by day, is brought to life at night with light and colour.


The beauty of light painting is that it can be done anywhere and even in any weather – even rain! Four hours is not a lot of time, so we will go to areas in the city where we have a great deal of choice and subjects to paint. Sometimes we may go out to areas just outside the city. 


This workshop is for those who wish to learn a technical skill that can enhance their own  photography. Basic skills in Adobe Photoshop is important. Other editing programmes that allow working in layers can be  useful too.


• Drinks and snacks are included during the workshop. We will be working at night so having refreshments and snacks will keep you energized.

• Any permits for shooting are included for our group.

• I will demonstrate basic image blending and layering so that you feel confident going forward in your exploration into more light painting on your own.  

• I provide various coloured gels for use over the beam of your flashlight.


• A DSLR or mirrorless camera is a must. You should be familiar with your camera and all its manual functions. We will be shooting in manual mode – no auto settings will be used.

• As we will be shooting at night, a sturdy tripod is essential. Lightweight and delicate tripods may have some movement, especially if there is wind. A sturdy tripod will keep your camera more fixed in windy conditions.

• A way of remotely triggering your camera is very useful. If you do not have a remote trigger, you may also use the camera's timer function.

• As far as lenses go, a wide lens is preferable. Either a prime lens or a zoom that can be used  relatively wide. Anything from 10 mm to 35 mm is a good range for most of our subjects.

• A bright LED flashlight is really all you need. It is best if your flashlight has the ability to offer various levels of luminance. As well as various levels of brightness, if you also have the ability to widen or narrow your flashlight beam, that will be a plus.
