Painting with Light Workshop


This evening class allows us to work in a dark environment, which is needed to capture the full effect of Painting with Light. Participants will work with their own cameras and learn how to create compelling compositions and effects by “painting” the light onto their subjects using various light sources, and capturing it by using long exposures. You are welcome to bring in your own props.

This workshop was designed for NYSATA members, but is open to all who wish to participate.
