Workshop: Lomographic Lightpainting

THIS WORKSHOP HAS BEEN MOVED TO THE LOMOGRAPHY GALLERY STORE GREENWICH. Please call 212-529-4351 for more details. Photography is based on the way that light creates a painting on film, using the beams bouncing off all of the world in front of us to hit and be captured on our negatives. We can use light as we wish and create our own paintings, controlling the brush strokes of the light with our own hands. Learn how to paint with light of your own at the Lomography Gallery Store Gramercy in NYC as we host this nighttime Lightpainting workshop!

Camera: Diana F+

When: Wednesday, August 22, 2012 @ 7pm

Night is one of the most beautiful times of the day to photograph. From long exposures to the glow of ambient light, photographing on low-light situations is magical.
