LP Workshop in Okinawa Japan!

I am extremely pleased to announce i will be hosting a light painting and night photography workshop in Okinawa, Japan.  Keep reading for the details...

 Come join me for two nights of fun and photography. I would like to introduce the magic of light painting and night photography.  The first night we will be covering long exposure and night photography essentials. Learn how to make an image rather than take an image. Use time and light to build up your picture from a black canvas in to exactly what you envisioned.

You’ll then be prepared for the second night which will focus on light painting and other creative techniques. I will reveal some of my secrets and show you step by step how to create  amazing light paintings. You’ll also learn how to make custom tools and use them creatively.

Light painting and night photography has a certain magic about it. When the shutter closes you will find your self running back to the camera to see what you have captured. Friends and family will be stunned by the images you’ve been able to create. After the weekend you’ll have the knowledge and skills to go out and start painting the night with light.

The course is being organized by Okinawa photographer/write Chris Willson.  I ripped this from his blog.  You can read all the details over there by clicking here.

Dates: The two night course is scheduled to take place on the evenings of July 8th and 9th. July 10th is a backup day in case of rain on both the 8th and 9th. In the event of a typhoon leading to a base lockdown the course will be rescheduled. The course will take place in central Okinawa (Yomitan / Uruma City).

The course is limited to 12 students. To reserve a place send an email to chris@travel67.com (please write WORKSHOP RESERVATION on the subject line)  A 50 dollar deposit is required to book a place on the course. I’ll send a paypal request for the deposit to those who are booking the course.

 At a minimum you’ll need a DSLR and a tripod. We’d highly recommend a cable release or a remote also. If you have a hotshoe flash and or flashlights bring these along also.

You’ll get the most out of the course if you already confident manually selecting aperture, shutter speed, and ISO. If you’re new to photography and not sure about this, I’ll be running Photography 101 workshops on the weekends of June 25&26 and July 2&3.

Feel free to contact me as well, if you are interested.  There is a limit to the number of people so book early.
