DPS Memorial Summer School Night News: 25th August

Sandra’s Light Painting Night:

The final night of the innovative 2016 DPS MSS attracted an enthusiastic crowd of members and guests (and possibly the largest number of cameras, remote releases and tripods ever seen at a photography club!)

Sandra Hewitson, Chris Knaggs and Neil Maughan opened up the whole world of painting with light, showing numerous LED devices and demonstrating a range of techniques. It was a hands on night of photography with numerous opportunities to practise using the LEDs and photographing the set ups. Sandra, Chris and Neil did a great job and it was an illuminating, enjoyable, fun night

LED devices included adapted LED brollies from ebay (with brolly bit removed), battery powered string lights, Electric Luminescence Wire, flashing LED torches in four colours with a range of Perspex attachments, many low cost and imaginatively customised, to the more sophisticated and higher cost Pixelsticks
