What you'll do

We will meet up at sunset and introduce ourselves to each other over light snacks. We will then meet some of the Light Painting artists that we will be shooting.
I will help you set up your cameras and go over best-settings with each of you. We will shoot for a couple hours as artists come and go.

We will then go over the pictures you took, pick your favorites and share with others in the group. You will be amazed at what you have captured.

I will give you the handles of the artists you took photos of so you can tag them in any social media posts.

This is a great community of creative people and you can become part of it by participating. Other exclusive events similar to this happen throughout Los Angeles, and you can learn about those here if you are interested in expanding your light painting portfolio.
Other things to note
Bring a DSLR Camera, Tripod, charged batteries and cards - we will be taking long exposures. Small, light tripods for low angles are great too. Some people bring a beach blanket or small beach chair.

This was a great experience! Walter is very knowledgeable and passionate about his craft...His ideas on different ways to shoot photos are amazing, especially the night photos which was always a struggle for me. With Walters help I’m now able to better navigate through my camera and better shots! I highly recommend this experience.

Was great to have Walter in a small group session which gave us 1 on 1 time for discussion and plenty of freedom to get creative with the lights.

Tonight was incredible! Walter is such a great photographer and he’s super generous with sharing he’s techniques and ideas to capture photos unlike anything I’ve shot before. The artists of glow flow are AMAZING. I felt like I was at a private cirque de sole. They performed for the entire experience creating all sorts of different looks with really cool glowing and lighted objects. Walter took the tone to show me the best settings for shooting the different performers. He introduced us to everyone and all were very nice. I feel part of this community- looking forward to sharing all the pictures we took with the other photographers and performers. This has been one of the best nights I’ve had in LA. Thank you Walter. I will do this experience again for sure. And next time I’m bringing more people!
