I’m very excited about the new Nighttime/Light Painting workshop that Bob Lussier and I will be hosting this weekend at the Stone Mill in Lawrence. We will be leading a small group of photographers through the various abandoned parts of the mill, for what should be a fantastic night of shooting and learning.
While we of course really enjoy photographing the mills during the day, there’s something about being there at night that is very cool. The ambient light coming in from the moon, as well as the various exterior lights outside, creates a unique mood compared with what we can capture during the day.
This image takes advantage of the red light coming off the exit sign, as well as the yellowish light coming from outside into the stairwell. We added a little blue light on the stairs with some light painting, and the result is a multi-colored image that you just couldn’t accomplish during daylight hours.
