    By following a photographic workflow, you’ll first learn how to import digital photos into Lightroom. From there, you’ll learn different ways to manage your photos, make one-click adjustments, and then all the way to making more advanced adjustments using the controls that Lightroom offers. You’ll also experiment with Lightroom’s non-destructive environment by enhancing a variety of photos by working within Lightroom’s Library and Develop modules.

    Light painting is the photographic technique of moving a light source to add light and alter your image during a long exposure. From simple flashlights to steel wool, glowsticks, and more dedicated tools, there are a variety of ways to light paint.

    Join Michael Downey in Clinton, NJ for a leisurely walk through the town at night and learn how to create the otherworldly "time portals" and "orbs" pictured with the use of light brushes. There will be a brief class before we begin the walk and practice these hands-on light painting techniques.

    Please bring your digital camera (must be capable of shooting in manual mode), a sturdy tripod, and a remote shutter release. Light brushes will be provided.

    *Limited to 10 attendees.
    *Meet Michael at Lower Center Street.
    *Details will be sent via email 1-2 days prior.
    *Please wear masks and comfortable shoes.
