Painting with Light Photography

October 12, 2021 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Photographing a Japanese lantern at night.

Think of a portable light source (aka flashlight) as a paint brush. Then imagine the fun you will have using it to light garden subjects at night. YES! it’s great fun and you will want to join us for this special class that’s offered only once each year. Tripods are essential for the long exposures and to prevent camera shake by the photographer. This one’s all about time, focus and patience. Register soon to build up your knowledge and levels of each component. This one always sells out quickly due to limited enrollment so sign up very soon. Class is limited to DSLR or mirrorless cameras. Long lenses not required.
