Teen Read Week

The Clifton Public Library will celebrate Teen Read Week™ (October 16-22, 2011) with a special photography event! Teens ages 11-17 are invited to join us at the Main Memorial Library, Thursday October 20 at 7 P.M., for a light painting workshop with local photographer Rachel Darley.
Light painting is a photographic technique that uses a light source such as a flashlight to write in the air, draw a design or create an epic wizarding battle which then can be captured by the photographer by slowing the shutter speed of the camera. You can see an example of light painting by visiting Mrs. Darley’s photography blog: http://www.blogthejourney.com/2008/07/painting-with-light.html
Registration is not required. Please bring a flashlight.
