Adventuring Details!

Join night sky and light painting expert, Katrina Brown, on location at one of the most beautiful, interesting and captivating places you’ll ever experience. This night-time adventure will teach you how you can capture mesmerizing images while using various methods of light! Learn how to photograph stars moving in the sky, change a scene by creatively adding light or even build drama by integrating star trails. Early each evening, we will light paint one model, Nina incorporating the lovely environment and sky. If you don’t move your camera, you can even add star trails or make a timelapse video. Katrina’s creativity and proven methods make it easy for you to get stunning images!

Katrina will teach you how to take one set of images and turn them into 3 pieces of art:
  1. Point of light star image
  2. Long exposure star trail image with or without a light painted subject
  3. Time lapsed stop motion video with or without a light painted subject

There will be a pre-trip class to learn your settings and familiarize you with the experience. We’ll go to work at dusk and shoot until the wee hours of the morning. Post processing will be done when we return.
