Have you considered light painting? Max Hinz, Photo Club PDX member and experienced light-spinner extraordinaire, is going to be teaching us. Learn how to properly and safely create images utilizing the light of fire as well as other light sources.
We are meeting at the swim dock, South of the Hawthorne Bridge, near the river on the Eastbank Esplanade.
Consider bringing some supplies if you have them:
steel wool (0000)
any light painting gear you have (mostly sold as rave stuff or kids toys)
a camera and tripod
a remote switch is handy but not necessary
