Light Painting at Altona Beach

Light Painting at Altona Beach © Ian Gofton

It was a calm, clear and mild night that attracted a large number of members to Altona Beach for our light painting activity.  I got to the beach around 7.15pm which I thought was early and walked to our usual spot only to find a huge line of tripods with hardly a spot left.

Around 20 members joined us for the night. There were also some “ring ins” who joined us for the night and had some fun and indicated they might like to join the Club.

Neil, Matt and Karl expertly whirled and twirled the light painting tools and burning steel wool to great effect that ensured all present captured some great images. The count of three, two, one and the sound of clicking shutters resounded through the night as those present endeavoured to capture the next light show. It was a great night enjoyed by all.
