Light Painting and LightArt-Photography are a synonym for working, painting and performing with light in front of a camera during one continous long exposure shot. Like no other genre in photography nowadays Light painting is in the focus of press and media coverage. Although clearly developing as a trend it is still widly unknown to the general public or professional photographers.
phoLAC wants to offer a public stage and put this kind of photography in its due light. With four event areas visitors will be provided with a lot of information and activities:
On a global scale phoLAC 2016 is the biggest and most elaborate congress unique in its kind and for the first time in Germany. In an ever growing Light Painting community it won´t be repeated in this form. It is kind of an unique experience to become more familiar with the persons behind the camera and the performers.
Prize for the 3 day ticket (Friday/Saturday/Sunday)for Photokina & phoLAC is 30€.
