Astrophotography!

This week we learned about Astrophotography!
We were delighted to welcome guest speaker Dr. Ray Butler from the School of Physics, NUI Galway. Ray presented a talk about
Astrophotography.

After Ray’s presentation, Finbar gave us the chance to create our own amazing photography using a Light Painting Photography technique. This technique is the art form of 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 (let’s say a 30 second exposure) the flashes, streaks, colors, textures, and trails of light created by our light painting tools and modifiers can be captured in a photograph without the use of any postproduction.
