Learned a “ton” of stuff while doing a light painting workshop with Harold Ross the last few days. Harold is an absolute master at light painting and just as masterful at teaching light painting. Neither of which is easy to do. If you are serious at learning how to light paint you could do no better than Harold!!! The lovely Vera, his wife, was also a joy to meet and spend some time with. My brain needs to absorb all the info Harold precisely poured into it and see where I will go with that…many thanks to Harold.

Lots to learn here, stay tuned for more as I have some fun…
