Ever seen a photograph like this and thought: “I wish I could do that”. Well, you can, right here in Centennial Parklands.

Whether you’re an amateur or a professional, you’ll still be able to create an amazing piece of photographic magic on Peter Solness’ Painting with Light session. Want proof?


Check out this shot from a recent participant!

Last year amateur photographer Georgie Walton attended the session. She sent us the before and after of her composition to show the difference:


    "The course was amazing fun and the time really flew. Wish I could do it again! Cheers - Georgie"

“The course was amazing fun and the time really flew. Wish I could do it again! Cheers – Georgie”


Program details

The ‘Painting With Light’ class will teach you how to apply light in carefully considered and playful ways to create unique and exciting images. Continuing with a floral theme this year, the night will start with indoor photography of some stunning native wildflowers, building skills using the effect of torchlight.

Armed with your new knowledge, you’ll then head out into Centennial Park’s picturesque paperbark and fig groves where you will ‘paint’ the trees, statues and historic buildings with torchlight. There will also be other nice surprises, such as a ‘Fire Breathing Griffin’ to photograph.


Next date

The next session is Friday 30 January 2015, starting at 7pm. Find out all the activity details and booking information here.

Strictly limited numbers – so book early!


Centennial Parklands has inspired artists for generations, and will (hopefully) continue with you. If you can’t make this session, we’ll be running more in throughout the year.
