For the most part we were there to photograph wildlife and landscapes, but but for now I'm going to share the photos I took while learning to Light Paint with photographer Dave Black. Dave's sports photography is spectacular, and if you take a look at his website you'll probably recognize some of his images even if you don't recognize his name.
I was lucky enough to spend several days, nights, and mornings with Dave and a few other photographers learning his light painting techniques. Basically, you're in the dark using a small pen light, or out doors using hand held spotlights to light your subject. It's long exposure photography at it's most fun!
Using 30 second exposures and light 'tools' adds a different perspective to a subject, and getting the same effect twice is nearly impossible!
I'm looking forward to doing more experimenting...but for now, here's the photos from the workshop.
These indoor exposures were 30 secs @f11, ISO 200. Taken in a dark room, the only light was coming from my mini flashlights.
