Light Painting Workshop

Jürgen Lobert


Friday, November 8


(Rain date: November 10 5-8pm)

Castle Island, South Boston

Cost: $50 (refunded if canceled)

Note: a minimum enrollment of 7 is needed and there is a maximum of 12.

Following his October 28 presentation on Light Painting and Drawing photography, Jürgen Lobert is offering a group photo shoot with instructions to practice what was taught in the presentation, to add light to a night scene to illuminate surfaces and to create images with unique light figures. 

The photo shoot will be three hours long and held at Castle Island, South Boston, a 20 minute drive from Newton. This event will need at least seven participants and is limited to a maximum of twelve. Jürgen will spend the entire time assisting attendees with setup, camera settings, exposure, creativity and composition. In addition, he will have a variety of light drawing tools available. 

The cost for this photo workshop is $50 per person. A detailed preparation sheet and list of equipment suggestions will be provided prior to the event and Jürgen can answer questions beforehand.


You need to bring your camera equipment capable of manual settings, as well as a tripod and remote trigger and a medium bright flashlight (pointing forward).


The event is scheduled for November 8, a Friday evening, from 7 to 10 pm (to allow travel after work). This event is weather dependent and the rain date is the following Sunday, November 10, but from 5-8pm, to allow returning home in a timely manner for Monday’s work.

Speaker notes for his presentation can be downloaded here. This photo workshop is a great opportunity to get started with light painting and drawing photography. 

More information about home-made light painting and drawing tools can be found on Jürgen’s blog and his Patreon page
