So I recently ran another of my Light Painting workshops, that’s 3 of 6 down so far and I am starting to develop a pattern, a flow for the workshops. It’s funny the day of this workshop was actually warm and sunny and very pleasant for a Melbourne Winters day, and instead of enjoying the best of it, we were sitting inside in the dark, completely oblivious to the joy outside. Funny old Melbourne weather.
This is just one of the scenes I set up for the workshop, we have three stations and I create a small scene on each of them, then the students can change them around, or completely remove it and create their own from the table of props I set up. I do it this way, as I find people a little overwhelmed, to begin with, and grateful to just shoot whatever is there. Once they get the hang of settings and feel a little more comfortable, then they are happy to start playing with props. I also try and offer slightly different props for each class, I don’t want everyone to walk away with the same images.
Do you live in Melbourne? If you are interested there are still a few spots left in some classes in August and September…
