Hi Oliver,

Thank you for running the workshop on the weekend, I had a great time and am hoping to get some images done in the next week or two.  Not sure how my orb will go, but practicing should help... H.M.


Hi Oliver, thanks for a most informative workshop last weekend. Your sharing of information has led me to make a light painting 'wand'... P.W.
