My workshops involve real teaching of the methods I employ, and this is a technical and intensive workshop… you will be given the training needed to produce work at a very high level. You will be receiving personal, detailed hands-on (literally!) instruction on proper light painting (not light pointing), and my post production process. You will actually learn the subtleties of lighting, using simple and inexpensive lighting tools, and the nuances of using layers and masking in Photoshop to create powerful images! The techniques you will be learning are simply not taught anywhere else.
I’ve been using light painting as my main method of lighting for 26 years.
My co-instructor, John Corcoran, will be bringing a lot of experience to the workshop. He has worked as a professional photographer for over 35 years, and has been light painting for over 20 of those years.
He shoots wonderful floral images and portraits, all using light painting. You can see some of John’s images HERE.
“I first saw Harold Ross’s work in Lenswork magazine several years ago. I subsequently purchased his Special Edition Folio, “Shopcraft”. At that time I made a commitment to myself to contact Harold and take his light painting workshop. Finally after four years of dreaming, I took Harold’s workshop. I was not disappointed! The structure of the workshop was very effective. The learning environment was also excellent. During the introductory session, Harold was able to discern the level of expertise of his students. He then tailored the instruction around that expertise. Students were able to get direct hands-on training by Harold as well as gain additional information by watching Harold work with other students. It was a very intense hands-on interactive workshop. The photo studio, selection of props, and the processing computer equipment and software were all superb. Harold was able to translate his years of experience into a very understandable instructional methodology. He took subtle but complex techniques and made them simple and workable for the students. My overall objective for the class was to get a good understanding of Harold’s light painting technique. I received much more. I walked away confident that I could continue to experiment and learn the technique. I came away with many ideas to explore. And exceeding my expectations, I also had an image that I am proud to exhibit. Thank you Harold for a great workshop and a start of a new learning experience.”

“Harold’s Light Painting workshop was a five star experience. The workshop is professional A to Z and Harold shares his knowledge on any aspect of pre- and post processing photography and beyond. A true 360 experience. Harold ignited in me a very important new level towards professional photo working, thinking, and processing as artist and engineer. I am delighted that I made the decision to participate and feel like a different photographer post-workshop. This was my first real experience with light painting and will help me in practicing these techniques beyond a studio setup. This is THE light painting workshop you will ever need to take, seriously.
Harold is a great teacher in both theoretical and hands-on teachings. He is very open and sensitive to a situation to guide a student, but also to allow for failure so that teacher and student gain insights together and discuss their experience. This is golden.”
