STEAM Team is our program series for children in grades 4–8. This month we explored Light Painting. Light Painting is a photography technique that is simple with the right tools and gives striking results.
In our program we used iPads and an app that allowed us to manually control the shutter setting on the camera. The shutter of a camera usually opens and closes quickly, like a blinking eye. When we adjusted the settings and dimmed the lights our artists had enough time to draw a picture or create special effects using flashlights.
