Painting with Lights with Trevern residents

Painting with Lights with Trevern residents

Posted by admin on February 8,2019

On Tuesday evening, our residents at Trevern were introduced to a new creative way of expressing themselves - Painting with lights.

What is Painting with Lights?

Painting with lights is a photography technique and an art form using handheld lights to paint and/or draw in a scene while the shutter of a camera is left open during a long exposure photograph. By shooting in a dark location and using photographic technique of LONG exposure photography (eg. a 30 second exposure) the flashes, streaks, colours, textures, and trails of light created can be captured in your photograph without the use of any post production.

One of our residents said of the activity: ‘it’s a lot of fun. It’s something you could do for hours and still not get bored of it!’

Maria DiCarlo, our Activities Coordinator at Trevern is an amateur photographer herself and she said: ‘it was a great way for our residents to express themselves and be inventive. I thought it was wonderful to see the ‘final products’ that the residents captured on camera.’
