Wolf House-Night Photography-Part 1 & 2

For a unique opportunity to create wondrous and magical light painted photos of Jack London’s Wolf House that few will have the chance to capture, join us on April 27th and discover the unique art of light painting for digital photography. In this fun and informative class, professional photographer and instructor, Ray Mabry will take you through all his camera settings, equipment, tips, and techniques to make dramatic and fantastic light painted images similar to the photos above.

NEW! In this class we will learn and/or refresh the basics techniques of light painting and then expand the vision by adding a little light to the interior to create a beautiful other worldly image of the ruins of the Wolf House. 

We will be exploring the traditional form of light painting for this class. It is a technique where we use powerful flashlights (and other light source) to paint light onto a subject or scene during a long exposure. The results are always one of a kind and amazing, revealing an extraordinary scene that would not ordinarily be visible to us.

You will learn:

  • Styles of light painting
  • Setup and preparation
  • Recommended Equipment
  • Camera basics (setting up your camera)
  • Light sources
  • Lighting techniques

What you will need to bring.

Meet Ray

Editor's Note: 2018 marks the 4th year that Ray has supported Jack London State Historic Park by presenting photography classes and making generous contributions! Thank you Ray!

For over 25 years, Ray Mabry has used his experience in photography to capture images in architecture, landscape and abstract forms. Starting out, Ray would process his own black and white film and enlargements and loves the creative expression that photography has to offer.

Ray has an extensive background in computer technology and digital imagery and the switch to digital photography in 2001 was a natural move. He is able to capture imagery to further explore new ideas in digital photography and streamline his process through the digital darkroom.

A writer for several online photography blogs, a photography instructor and photojournalist, his goal is to capture the sights, sounds, and feel of the environment and translate those senses into a visual experience that will transcend the two-dimensional bounds of the photograph itself.
