Beautiful blue and red orb.
Would you like to learn first-hand how to paint with light? I offer free classes at libraries, schools or other institutions within a 40 mile radius of Galion, Ohio.
These short (90 minutes to 2 hours) introductory digital photography classes teach a fun and easy long exposure technique called Light Painting.
The instruction is tailored for the average person who is used to using a point and shoot camera. The talk includes a 30 minute PowerPoint slide show followed by a short question and answer session. The remaining time is spent involving the attendees in a live demonstration of creating their own light painting photos. I will also bring some sample tools that can be used for light painting.
These classes are offered free of charge, and class dates are flexible. Ninety minutes is the optimal amount of class time for this presentation.
If you’d like your local library (or other group) to present this class, please forward them the link to this post. They can use my contact form to arrange for me to present this class. Read more... (279 words, 1 image, estimated 1:07 mins reading time)
