I had brought all my lights and flashlights. Someone had brought a violin and backdrops and soon everyone was sharing and exchanging ideas. I'd rather hoped that someone would actually teach but it seemed we were all beginners so we bantered back and forth, playing with different lights. Janice and I found some glasses in the kitchen and someone had brought a half bottle of red wine which I eyed eagerly, but I soon forgot about that as we attempted to set up our ideas.
In the blink of an eye 2 hours had passed and the evening came to an end. This will be a club that I'll go to regularly. We meet once a month so next time, we'll show our images from the light painting and critique each other. And with the warmer evenings coming we'll be able to take the light painting outside or just use the beautiful grounds for projects. And the best part for me is that this club is only about 20 minutes away, such a joy to have something local and not have to drive for over an hour on a week day night. Roll on next meeting!
