SUMMER READING KICKOFF EVENT – LIGHT PAINTINGS – Monday, June 30, @ 6:30 p.m. What is light painting? It is described as “a great way to create striking images and illusions using a camera, a light source, and a little practice.” When the camera shutter is open (and the room is in the dark), the digital sensor acts like a blank canvas. It’s as if the image is being drawn or painted by the light source as it moves through space. Join us as we create these “light paintings.”
