This is not your ordinary light painting technique. A Dave Black light painting is a photograph taken with a timed exposure using a mobile, constant light source to illuminate the scene. Complete darkness and total control over the exposure is key. The results will astound you. In this class, Dave Black teaches you his light painting technique by showing you his camera and focus settings, what type of flashlight to use for each scene, and how and where to apply the light. In addition, you'll learn some common light painting errors and how to prevent and/or correct them.
