Light Painting at the Stone Mountain Cemetery

Light Painting Photography by www.atlantaartisticweddings.com

One of the things I love to do in photography light painting.  As a Atlanta Wedding Photographer at www.atlantaartisticweddings.com I like to really push the limits of photography. The two of the hardest things to shoot are weddings and night photography to me.   Both are the most rewarding to me. 

As some of you may know I teach at Emory's Continuing Education Program.  I have a great group of students for the Digital Photography II class.  They have been in the program for a while now.  One of the portions of the class I like to do Light Painting.  I like giving this assignment to the students for a couple of reasons.  One it does not take a lot of expensive equipment just a tripod and a flash light or any other kind of light source such as cell phone, laser pointers or spot lights.  It also teaches the students about long exposures and how to deal with different light sources.  Another great reason for giving that assignment is that the results are dramatic and that students are always amazed at how simple it is to do. 

This weekend I took one of the students and his kids to the Stone Mountain Cemetery.  According to the website.

"Established circa 1850, the Cemetery is the final resting place for the villages’ settlers, granite cutters, farmers, and townspeople. It contains graves of veterans from the Civil War to the present.  Its notable rise and view of Stone Mountain is complemented by its granite entry piers and the beautifully carved headstones and mausoleums that lie within it.  This landmark historic site draws scores of annual visitors interested in family and local history as well as passerby’s attracted by its unique features and walkability."

It is one of the older cemeteries in the Atlanta area.  If you are in to history it is a great little side trip!  After your visit you can check out Stone Mountain and historic downtown.  It is a great community with just some great folks!

Thanks so much for visiting.  I would love to hear from you.  You contact me at my website at www.atlantaartisticweddings.com or email me directly at david@atlantaartyisticweddings.com.
