Samy’s is pleased to host Dave Black for this live online workshop!

Nikon Ambassador, Dave Black, will be teaching and demonstrating the artistic lighting technique of Lightpainting, which combines long exposure times with illumination from mobile light sources to create unique photography. This highly creative technique is applicable for every photographic genre and is the gateway to more styles of Creative Lighting. Dave will teach you the step-by-step method and how you can do it from the comfort of your own home, and he will create several examples live during the session.

Be sure to stay until the end – there will be a raffle for a SanDisk SSD, as well as product experts on hand to answer all of your storage/gear questions.
