January 28, 2016 Monthly Challenge -- Painting with Light


The Monthly Challenge for January 28, 2016  is Painting with Lights Still Life or Holiday Lights.  The still life option involves using a slow shutter speed to "paint with light."  The idea, as illustrated at the last meeting,  is to create an interesting light effect on whatever objects are in your image with a simple flashlight.  The photographs above, which were taken at the last meeting, illustrate the concept.

Here are two videos on YouTube that discuss the technique:

Here's the PowerPoint from the meeting with a description of what you'll need to create the effect:
