Participants with an intermediate or advanced skill level will find this class interesting. Foundational photography skills, such as those covered in our popular Digital Photography 1-2-3 Course are recommended.
We recommend any "system camera" which has a changeable lens (such as those from Olympus, Sony, Fujifilm, Panasonic, Nikon or Canon). We are “brand-agnostic” at Viewfinder, so any camera brand is just fine. Wide angle and medium lenses (zoom or fixed focal length) tend to work best for light painting. Please be sure to charge your camera's battery and consider bringing along an extra (if you have one). You will need a tripod for this course and don't forget a memory card!
*NOTE: If you do not own a tripod, we are happy to loan you one for the course.
Halle 710, (Eulachpark) 8404 Winterthur.
Matt Anderson is Viewfinder's lead photography instructor and is responsible for course development and for teaching a number of Viewfinder’s photography courses and workshops. Matt’s photography career began in the USA where he worked at three different daily newspapers and freelanced regularly for the Associated Press in Seattle — where he grew up. These days he regularly shoots for the Zurich-based Keystone agency and works with corporate and private clients in the Zurich area. Matt’s three passions are: exploring new places (near and far), creating impactful photographs, and helping other photographers become more creative and effective in their craft. Matt feels privileged to work in a business that combines his passions and brings him in contact with so many interesting people from all over the world.
Our light painting workshop is all about getting creative and having fun with other members of the group. We'll start with a short strategy talk, familiarizing participants with key information about exposure settings, plus a few key tricks and tips. Then it's time to start shooting! Students will be "performing" their light painting moves for their own camera (and also for others). It's a very fun, very hands-on and very colorful evening which is bound to produce very interesting results!
After completing this course you'll be well prepared for these upcoming photography courses!
