This wildly successful light projection class is back, featuring all-new setups, fresh images, and more powerful projection tools. These enhancements ensure every attendee can capture their own unique, creative images.
Projection photography starts with a simple idea: using a digital projector to display images onto human subjects for a photo. While that’s pretty neat, we can do better. A lot better. In this class, we take it to 11.
We’ll begin with a completely novel setup, employing side-by-side projectors to immerse a dancer in light and art. This segment is open to both photography and videography enthusiasts and is guaranteed to amaze you.
After about 30 minutes, we’ll divide the room into two side-by-side shooting bays, providing ample time for every attendee to create their art. As in previous sessions, we’ll offer a wide range of props and wardrobe accessories, as well as LED tube lights and hundreds of entirely new images to choose from. You can even project custom text or geometric patterns onto the models.
This year, we’re also introducing a unique addition called “The Cage.” If the main shooting bays become too crowded, The Cage offers a third location to help spread participants out. The Cage, roughly the size of an old-fashioned phone booth, will contain a model surrounded by programmable LED lights that can display any color and a variety of patterns. To make it even more intriguing, we’ll project images onto The Cage using a basic form of projection mapping technology, ensuring that the projection remains confined within the structure.
As in the previous year, we’ll be using Projection Studio, my custom light projection software (yes, I created it from scratch and it is compatible with both Mac and Windows). The software is freely available for everyone to use.
What to bring: a camera and your favorite lens!
