This Week's Program:

Come join the SLA for a long exposure light painting workshop. Anyone is welcome, even if you don’t have a background in photography, or don’t have an interest in taking the pictures, you can still come participate in light painting. A camera is not required, but you can bring one if you want to learn or practice long exposure photography. Bring your flashlight, glow sticks, sparklers, or other light source to draw in the night as we take long exposure pictures to capture the movement. We will also experiment with steel wool photography, or any other ideas participants may have and want to try. At the end of the program, the group can share photos.

Audience: Participants of any age are welcome to participate. Children must be accompanied by an adult.

What to Bring: Participants should bundle up for the cold because we will be outside as the sun sets and not moving very much. Bring hand warmers, toe warmers, a hot drink, or anything else to keep warm. Participants should also bring headlamps and other sources of light to make fun long-exposure light pictures.

This Week's LRCC Guide: 

My name is Sydney Kahl, and I am from Plymouth, New Hampshire. I graduated from St. Lawrence University in upstate New York in May 2018 with an Environmental Studies degree, and minors in Creative Writing and Outdoor Studies. After graduating I spent the summer working for the Utah Department of Natural Resources as an Aquatic Invasive Species technician on Lake Powell, and then came back east to work at Lakes of the Clouds hut on Mt. Washington for the Appalachian Mountain Club this fall. I spent the summer of 2015 working for Squam Lakes Association as a Squam Conservation Intern, and I am very excited to be back as a Lakes Region Conservation Corps member for the winter!
