One-on-one workshop with Gary Johnson… and a video tutorial
Recently, photographer Gary Johnson, of Lititz, PA came to the studio to take a light painting workshop. Gary was pretty jazzed (he was a professional musician whose career was spent performing on Broadway!) about learning light painting, and he brought with him lots of enthusiasm, as well as a great sense of humor.
I decided to do a little tutorial using the image that Gary created in the workshop, specifically about how roundness is enhanced by controlling how the highlight transitions across a cylindrical shape. Light Painting is all about nuance, and this is no exception! (OK, you can call me a lighting geek if you wish, I won’t mind!)
Below is the video, approximately 6 minutes long, followed by Gary’s final image.
The next blog post will have another post production Tutorial involving the “Vintage Projector” image that Sonia Nunez recently created at a workshop.
