What is "Painting" with Light?

When we think of "photography", we often think about creating a two-dimensional image of a 3 dimensional subject.  In a brief moment, at the press of a button and click of the shutter, we capture a photograph! But there is another dimension that opens up a whole new way of thinking about photography. That dimension is TIME.

We'll slow down the shutter speed in this fun hands-on class and explore this dimension of time, and the many ways we can "paint with light" using a camera and various sources of light.

Students Are Saying...

Painting without a Brush

Light is the essential element in creating a photograph.   Through the techniques explored in this class, we open the door to all sorts of fun ways you can enhance your photography and creativity.

Change Your Understanding of "Photography"

It's entirely possible that you may change your understanding of "photography" as a result of this class.  The mind shift from thinking about taking a photograph of a scene/subject to painting with light onto a digital sensor or film can give you a better understanding of the photographic process and can be a great asset to your photographic skills!

Class Format

This workshop is hosted at my photography studio in NW Austin.  Class size limited to only a few students.  We meet for 3 hours on the first evening, and then 2 and a half hours for the 2nd evening. We will be working with a model, as we do amazing and fun things with light! You will be photographing with your own camera.
