Join Creative Photo Academy and light painting guru Katrina Brown for a creative weekend in the desert! Learn how to properly paint with light to create stunning images. We’ll supply the lights and guide you through the whole process.

In this workshop, we’ll explore light painting by mixing various ambient light situations such as stars and the Milky Way. Our focus will be on shooting in a styled shoot situation with an experienced model resulting in spectacular images. You will be exposed to many types of light painting tools, techniques and ideas to spark your creativity!

We’ll arrive in the afternoon to scout and plan our shots (or you can arrive earlier to shoot Joshua Tree landscapes). We’ll go to work at night. You can camp (highly recommend) or drive to a nearby hotel. (shooting 2 evenings, leaving Sunday morning or afternoon)
