What you'll do
We will first learn a bit about photography and camera's and more specificially long-exposure photography. (Be aware, I'm a lightpainter! That means I know my way around a camera but I'm not professional photographer.) Then it's time to fire up our programmable ledstrips and learn about the do's and don'ts of lightpainting by trial and error. And I'm sure that, after just 10 minutes of trying, we'll be making magic happen! The whole experience takes about 1h-1h30'.
I'm a lightpainter with a love for streetart and urban exploring. I've got over 3 years of experience making my own lightpaintinggear, using that to shoot badass long-exposure pictures, painting with light on badass places and teaching people the do's and don'ts of just that! (And since images say more than words, you might get a better idea of what it is I'm doing by checking Graffitilights on Instagram.)
I am bringing several different lightpainting-tools and my own camera + tripod That means there is no real need to bring…

Where you'll be
As a background we'll be using the most interesting of the 3 legal graffitizones in Ghent, the "grindbakken". It's near "Dok Noord", a shopping mall which is a little bit out of city centre but still perfectly within walking distance. (it's only a 20-minute walk from city hall) The place is very calm at night and it's full of high-quality streetart, ideal to take streetart-pictures where we add some lightpainting.
Things to keep in mind
Any experience can be cancelled and fully refunded within 24 hours of purchase.
Always communicate through Airbnb. To protect your payment, never transfer money or communicate outside the Airbnb website or app.
Up to 6 guests ages 16 and up can attend. There will be bright and flashing lights involved (like stroboscopic flashes). Be sure to let me know if you're epileptic or have any problems with that.
You’ll need to take a picture of yourself that matches the photo on your ID. This is so Airbnb can confirm who’s actually going on the experience. You’ll only have to do this once.
Wear shoes, not flipflops or sandals. The place itself can be a bit dirty and wet to 'run around' in. (but don't let this scare you, I'm always overthinking things in the safest possible way :-)
