About this talk


After learning from Matt, Tim and Gabe how to do everything from getting set up for a night shoot to how to capture star points and trails, you might wonder what to do with the dark foreground. In this presentation, Chris Nicholson will review the fundamentals of adding light to those shadows to reveal all the potential for that night composition.

Chris will discuss:

• light painting tools

• angle of light

• proper technique

• determining how much light to add

• and more…

By the end of this talk you’ll feel more confident getting into dark environments to start painting, opening up whole new worlds of photographic opportunity.
