Unique Light Painting Event Heading to Churchill Downs

Churchill Downs GrandstandOn October 3, 2015 at 9:00pm
 a free nighttime community photographic project 
celebrating three decades of Light Painting will occur at historic Churchill Downs in Louisville, Kentucky.
Light painting is a unique way to photograph and allows light to be shined on a subject from multiple directions over time. Produced at night thousands of lights are shined onto the subject and using a timed exposure, the result is created. Many big shot exposures have been 30 seconds and up to 2 minutes. For a short video sharing one of our projects and how light painting works, follow this link.

This website will be updated frequently as new information about the event becomes known. Please check back with us a necessary or follow us on Facebook.
