Event description

Reimagine Parramatta Park in a Rainbow of Light this World Pride

We invite you to a free one-hour public light experience using 100 individual lights of various colours. You will help to create magnificent luminous tunnels, stunningly bright ribbons and spectacular balls (ORBS)  of light under the direction of master light painter Peter Solness. As part of a public art experience, you will be immersed in the atmospherics of a large-scale, fluid light event.

Come and learn the effects of long exposure photography and how it can create other-worldly renditions. You will understand how the camera can record images that are not seen by the naked eye.

Everyone will get the chance to create unique images for sharing on social media

Technical Notes: Participating photographers will require modern Digital Cameras that have Manual settings for focusing, exposure and for creating 30 second-long shutter speeds.  (Smart phone cameras are not suitable for this project) You will also require a stable tripod to keep your camera steady.
