Light Painting is a broad term describing a wide variety of photographic techniques. This presentation covers a specific process that yields high quality, artistic images that cannot be achieved by traditional lighting methods. It involves multiple exposures using continuous lighting sources in a nearly totally dark environment and compositing the resulting exposures in Photoshop to achieve the result. Join us to see what equipment is used, how it’s done, and some of the results.
