Studio Light Painting – WINTER

This workshop will introduce students to the techniques of applying light to objects and models from a variety of light sources, without using standard studio lights. Applying directional light can add more intriguing and intricate effects than wide angle studio lights can provide. The techniques are also applicable to lighting outdoor landscapes at night or larger objects for product photography (cars etc.)

The workshop will cover an introduction to light painting, equipment, light sources with hands-on demos, exposure and white balance settings, composition and planning your shoot, as well as making or modifying your own light painting tools. These tools include flashlights, color gels, clear tubes, light sabers, any toy that lights up, EL wire, LED wired lights, small image projectors etc. Many of these tools will be provided for practicing in the studio.

Classroom sessions will alternate with studio time where we will practice the techniques with inanimate objects at first, before moving to teams and models. Each studio shoot is followed by a supervised computer lab editing session where post-processing techniques are explained and practiced.

Pre-requisites for this workshop are cameras capable of fully manual exposure (exposure time, aperture, ISO, white balance) and your familiarity with manual exposure. You will also need a tripod and a remote control or intervalometer for exposures longer than 30 seconds as well as at least one smaller flashlight. Equipment needs and suggestions will be discussed at the first class. Participation in the first class is strongly encouraged, as the technical information provided will become the building blocks for the fundamentals explored throughout remainder of the course.
