This was a real treat!
Jim Ingraham of our local Caveman Camera Club sent out an email last week.
Wednesday, March 17th will be our next education meeting. It will be a light painting field trip with Dale George as the teacher/instructor.
We will meet at Reinhart Volunteer Park (also known as All Sports Park) at 7 pm. When you go into the park take your first left. Just go to the end of the very long parking lot and you are there.
As much as I don’t want to say this, I gotta…Observe social distancing and wear your facial covering. I want all members to attend. I cannot and would not attempt to enforce this, do what you’re going to do, but please be respectful of others.
Bring camera, tripod, remote shutter (not absolutely necessary), fully charged battery, warm clothes, maybe a headlamp to see your camera dials.
Daylight savings time will be in effect so it won’t be getting dark until 7:30 or so.
Let’s get out of the house and have some fun.
Now I didn’t have a clue as to what a “light painting field trip” was but Jeannie agreed to come with me so we both turned up on the 17th at 7pm.
This was the area of the park where we all assembled.
In the main a single individual stood in front of us waving a light board in a synchronised manner. It was a flashing board. But there were times when he was joined by a woman and they both swung their own light boards.
Apart from cropping the images a little these photographs are as they were shot!
Talk about incredible!
(The shots were taken with a Nikon D750 with a Nikon 24-120 mm lens attached.
The settings were approximately 30 seconds Bulb f7.1 ISO 320.)
