One-on-One Light Painting Workshop – Marc Forand
I just completed teaching a One-on-One workshop with Marc Forand, who is from Toronto, Canada. Take a moment to check out his website. I especially like the opening page, a light painted landscape with rollover titles that he created at the scene!
Marc is a videographer who has a strong interest in still photography, and we had a great weekend learning the intricacies of light painting.
He travels a lot, and works on TV and Motion pictures all over the world. Marc told me stories of his trips to Cambodia, Vietnam, Thailand, the Middle East and many other faraway places.
With his interest in all things photographic, Marc decided to scout the studio for some old photo equipment to include in his still life image. On one of my shelves, we actually found a roll of film from 1958!
Here’s what Marc had to say:
“The overall experience of the workshop was excellent. Harold’s methods of teaching and the structure of the workshop made for a great learning experience. The workshop has made me see lighting from a fresh perspective, and I have no doubt the technique used in this workshop will apply well to cinematography as well. The Photoshop knowledge that I gained from this workshop is priceless, and I recommend the workshop to anyone who wants to take their photos to the next level!” – Marc Forand, Toronto – One-on-One Light Painting the Still Life (October 2011)
