WHAT HAPPENS IN THE WORKSHOP

Light painting is a photographic technique where you set a camera to a long exposure and use lights to draw pictures or words in the air. It’s a bit like the effect you get when you draw in the air with a sparkler!

This workshop enables the participants to learn how to use a DSLR camera to create a light painting. They will have the chance to experiment with different lights to see the effects that they create and then, working in groups, design their own light paintings. For longer workshops (i.e. longer than 1 day) this can be developed into a stop motion animation.
