 John Pirtle, The Light Dome (2017).

Summer School 2018.

Light painting is a photographic technique in which images are made by moving a hand-held light source while taking a long exposure photograph. Explore the wonders of photographic light painting and image in this experimental but accessible photographic approach. Participants will also be able to manipulate their images in Photoshop.

About John Pirtle:

It was approximately sixty years ago in post-war Britain that the enigmatic and award-winning John Pirtle's interest in photograph was first sparked. John discovered it was actually the use of incorrect techniques or 'happy accidents', such as wrong exposure, which excited him.  He combines this passion for innovation with an exciting use of composition.
