Creative Light Painting at After School Photography Club!

This week at our after school photography club our students have been light painting! Drawing with light is a really fun and creative photography technique. But how do you do it? Firstly, you have to make sure you’re in a dark place (the darker the better!). Then put your camera on the ‘Firework’ setting, or a slow shutter speed like 10-30″ (“=seconds). This means your shutter is held open for much longer than usual, allowing the movement of light to be recorded. So once you’ve set your camera, ask a friend to wave a touch or other light source like a sparkler in front of the camera and press the shutter button. Wait until the shutter closes again (you should hear a click) and Voila! You should have an amazing light painting.

Here are some of the amazing, creative light painting photographs taken by our after school photography club students:


















Half of our after school photography clubs had to do drawing with light last week as it was raining! So we switched their weeks and this week they photographed Winter. Here are their best wintery photographs:


















The after school photography club children did brilliantly this week thinking outside of the box to photograph creative light drawing photographs.
