Painting with light is an exciting and artistic way to portray your subject in a completely unique manner. Using the darkness of night as the backdrop and any subject as the canvas, the photographer works like a painter using flashlight to illuminate, highlight, and emphasize their subject. Using your own light source to illuminate the scene provides unrivaled creativity in rendering your final image. Experimentation with color, intensity and angle of the light source creates limitless possibilities and adds another technique to your portfolio. The tools are simple and the technique easy to master. Come join professional photographer and author Tim Cooper as he shares the tips and tricks to create light-painting masterpieces. Tim Cooper  began his career as a commercial and assignment photographer working with clients such as The North Face, The Ritz Carlton, Vasque boots, 3M, Blue Note Records, and The International Heart Institute. His editorial and commercial photographs have appeared in Travel & Leisure, New York Times Magazine, Outdoor Photographer, Ebony, Fly Rod & Reel, Modern Luxury, and Private Clubs as covers, advertising, art, and editorial illustration.  In addition to commercial work, Cooper has also been involved with the Rocky Mountain School of Photography, since 1993. He has taught workshops, classes, seminars, as well as held the positions of Consultant, Director of Education, Director of the Black and White Program and Director of Digital Imaging.

Here's a video aimed directly at so many of today's inexperienced digital SLR owners—you've owned a nice camera for while and want to move past totally automatic, green-zone shooting. But how do you make the move?  Even a study of shutter speeds and apertures alone doesn’t necessarily connect all the dots. How do you make intelligent and thoughtful choices in camera settings? In this video, Canon USA’s Rudy Winston gives you guidance to do exactly that. This is more than just understanding what a shutter speed is. Winston shows you how to take that preliminary understanding and translate it into the thought process an experienced photographer might use to get the right camera settings and the results they're hoping for. Using excellent sample images and clear on-screen graphics, this B&H Event Space video will give you the information and visual "push" you may need to move past the full auto green shooting mode, and begin to explore more creative photography with your camera.
