The Brownwood Night Photography & Light-Painting Workshop

    Newer Older

    Just wanting to let everyone know...I will be conducting a Night Photography and Light-Painting Workshop in Brownwood, Texas on February 26th & 27th. The curriculum will include two afternoons of classroom instruction and two nights of shooting in the field at various interesting abandoned locations in and around Brownwood, including the location in the image above, the old US Army Battalion HQ building. See my Brownwood Set for more possible / likely locations to which we will have access. I also hope to visit and line-up some other new locations as well.

    I plan to limit attendance to the first six photographers who register. That number may expand to ten, pending the availability of a second instructor / assistant to help out with questions in the field. Currently, there are 4 slots filled, so if you're interested, shoot me a Flickrmail for more details, including pricing (very reasonable!), payment information, equipment prerequisites, and lodging recommendations.

    Only two slots left...sign up now, and we'll see you in Brownwood!

    See it Bigger!

      Nice image. Sounds like a fun event. I'll be camping at the Grand Canyon that week otherwise I'd be fired up to be there.

      Good luck with it!

      Dang! If I could drive there in 10 - 15 hours, I'd do it. But from Alaska it's a 3-4 day drive.

      Thanks for the heads up, nevertheless.

      I will be doing one myself in a few months.

      This is so ironic. First you shoot the old Baker Hotel in Mineral Wells where my mother lived for a few years. I'm obsessed with that hotel and would LOVE to poke around the upper floors with a guide, preferably not a ghost, and shoot some of my own pics. (I actually emailed you about that last year). Both my parents worked at Fort Wolters back in the 1960's and I accompanied them to work occasionally during the summer. I spent hours at Wolters' base pool as well as the magnificent, freezing-cold, spring-fed Baker Hotel pool. They would allow me to swim there all day and I'd have lunch at their pool snack bar while my parents worked on base. NOW mom has moved to Brownwood and here you come again! I mean Mineral Wells and Brownwood are two of the more remote and obsolete towns in Texas. Who woulda thunk they'd make such interesting photographic subjects for such talented photogs? Tell mom I said 'hi.'

      Yes, do more of them, I'd sign up and I'm part of a photography club at the University of North Texas that would love to partake.

      what kind of lights do use when there is no power source available in most places you shoot (I'm assuming)

    17. Noel Kerns 61 months ago | reply

      oldcomforter - I use a combination and variety of flashlight and photographic strobes. Here's a link to a detailed accounting of the gear I use:

      Hey Noel, i thought your abandoned swift meat packing set was so amazingly good that it inspired me to finally go and shoot there myself. Check it out in my photos. I shot them in May 2010; two years after you were there. I live in the dallas area, so I'm familiar with the places you go and shoot. Keep up the good work!
