Images from the March 2013 Group Light Painting workshop…

Hi everyone! Remember, if you are seeing this in an email, please click on the headline above to see the blog in a better, richer color rendition!

Here is the recap from our most recent group workshop, held in March.  Our next workshop is coming up, and it’s scheduled for the 11th and 12th of May, with a two-hour introduction on the evening of the 10th. There are still slots available!

As always, I do a demonstration still life light painting, and this time, I chose this beautiful old kitchen scale from my prop collection. I really enjoy doing a demonstration image during the workshop, as it’s always fun, and I always learn something! Vera and I had gone out prop shopping prior to the workshop and found some very beautiful tomatoes, so I couldn’t resist.

The students, as usual, created some terrific images, and John and I very much enjoyed the experience we had with them!

Doris Burdick created this simple yet beautiful composition using carefully chosen elements that roughly fell into the same color family. Doris used a combination of very soft scrim light and harder light from a flashlight with diffuser (see tools and equipment page on the blog).

Rob Tuttle brought this amazing old clock to the workshop. He decided to do a straight on image which celebrates the wonderful design elements in it. Using raking light, Rob brought out the detail of the wood carving.

Lynn Cromer, who flew in from Texas, created this lovely image using just a few elements. Lynn’s desire was to create a beautiful classic still life, and his final image is just that!

Ron Studebaker, who flew in from Colorado, chose a few of my favorite things to photograph, and he did a great job revealing the texture of these vintage tools. I have a thing for old oil cans (and I suspect that I’m not the only one!).

Kerry Harrison, a workshop alumna, also couldn’t resist those gorgeous tomatoes! Kerry’s composition is unique, delicate and quite lovely.

Leslie Sinclair created an image with a wonderful balance of color and shape. At the same time, the contrast in textures is intriguing.

After the workshop,  I decided to do a tutorial video on “How to Un-Polish an Apple”.

It was another successful workshop, and it was great fun teaching the nuances of light and light painting. Thanks to my students for coming, and to John Corcoran for co-instructing!
