Club Meeting - Guest Presenter

This is an instructional and technical program to introduce photographers to light painting and light drawing, by New England-based fine art photographer Jürgen Lobert.

Adding artificial light to photos taken at night can be done through a number of techniques. Light painting adds additional light to existing surfaces, but light drawing is one of the few techniques where a photographer can actively create unique and intriguing content, rather than simply photographing existing objects. The following topics are covered:

  • Introduction to night photography equipment & settings

    • Trigonometry for photographers: the exposure triangle

    • Capturing time so you can spend it on painting

  • Adding light

    • Exposure considerations and the square root paradigm

    • Angles: how geometry creates intrigue

  • Buy or do it yourself: the light painter’s toolbox (demo)

  • Light Painting: How to convert a flashlight into a paint brush

  • Light Drawing: Unleash your artistic side

  • The three secrets of how to master light painting and drawing.

  • Post-processing considerations

  • Resources

Throughout the presentation, Jürgen demonstrates a number of light painting tools and shows how to use them and how they look using many visual examples.
