Lightpainting: Macro, Models, and Outdoor Location Portrait
with Dave Black
Break out your flashlight and join Dave Black for some lightpainting fun with flowers, models, and more. You may know Dave Black as a sports photographer, but he has taken the art of lightpainting to new levels from years of practice, experimenting, and getting creative. Dave begins the class with a daytime walk scouting for small world subjects to photograph, and then takes you step-by-step through his process for lightpainting small world scenes in daylight. From there, Dave heads into the studio for a stunning series of lightpainting portraits with a talented ballerina. Dave wraps up the class with a large scale lightpainting scene during twilight with a model on a very cool outdoor set. From daytime to night, indoors and out, Dave teaches you new ways to see the world and photograph it using creative lightpainting techniques. BUY COURSE
