DATE: Tuesday, 14 May 2013
TIME: 6:30-930PM


Please email: for more enquries or see current listing here.

Ever wondered how to take a cityscape photo at night or how to take a photo at night when the flash just doesn’t cut it? In this workshop, you will learn how to use the manual settings on your camera to create long exposures and work with natural and artificial light to capture photographs using the wonderful “painting with light” technique. You will learn the rules and how to break them and be given a chance to experiment with this technique inside and outside.  This workshop is for those wanting to get a little creative and explore the night with light and a camera. After this workshop you will have the skills to take awesome creative photos in low light situations and even complete darkness!

This workshop is a late one – so that we can get creative outside after sundown. Bring your torch and camera and get ready for some fun adventures! Workshop includes a complimentary glass of vino or something bubbly (or a non-alcoholic) so that we can relax and share photos at the end of the night.

Suitable for everyone at any level. Here’s some photos taken by previous participants. For photo examples by Amie Batalibasi: CLICK HERE

Amie Batalibasi is a documentary filmmaker based in Melbourne and Director/Founder of Colour Box Studio. Amie Batalibasi’s arts practice is founded on a strong background in art photography, public art and video art. Amie has worked creatively using visual mediums in artistic and screen capacities for over eight years. She completed a Bachelor of Photography Majoring in Art Photography at Griffith University Queensland College of Art in 2004 (for which she received the Graduating Photography Medal). In 2007 she completed a Graduate Diploma of Documentary Filmmaking at the Victorian College of Art. Her current work is centered around two main areas: producing documentary films that emphasise storytelling about human rights, social justice issues and cultural diversity; and sharing filmmaking and media skills with diverse communities through community based workshops.

Amie first picked up a camera at the age of 10. She has always believed that anyone can take a great photo without using an expensive camera. She’s always loved using consumer level cameras and exploring the capabilities of them. Early on, she experimented with 35mm film, Polaroid and medium format cameras and now she enjoys taking photos with her mobile phone and various digital cameras including the trusty Canon G11. She still does not own a DSLR (but don’t worry… she knows how to operate one, should u bring one to the workshop). Amie recently completed a video art piece called ‘Happened’ for the Digital Media Exhibition at Colour Box Studio – made from over 2300 photos taken in Tasmania, NSW, Northern Territory, Victoria, Thailand and the Solomon Islands.

Amie is an experienced workshop facilitator with a sound knowledge of photographic and film technical theory. She’s passionate about telling stories through the frame and is always excited to share her skills with others so that they can explore their own creativity.
