08 Nov 2018

On Tuesday 6th November, Tim Gamble showed us his amazing light paintings, and walked us through the processes used to make each one. He showed us the strange assortment of devices he has made to illuminate his images, and the essential camera equipment useful for light painting photography.

So, what is Light Painting? In short, you start with a blank canvas of an unlit scene — whether it be a night landscape, dark building, or a room in your house — and a way (or several ways) of illuminating objects in the scene and creating objects from light itself. Set up the camera, open the shutter, take off the lens cap and start painting. The possibilities are endless, limited only by your enthusiasm, imagination and resourcefulness!

Tim's images were a mind-blowing feast of the eyes. The varied from obvious scenes, given a surreal quality, to more fantastic scenes, heavily decorated with lighting effects, to totally abstract images.

Tim will be returning on Tuesday 20th November, and leading a light painting workshop at the club. It will be a chance to put what we learned into practice. Bring along your cameras, tripods, torches, gels, and childrens toys!
