On the subject of light, creativity and cameras

The Fortaleza de la Mota shut down its lights for a short time to allow the creative energy of participants in the workshop by Pedro Javier Alcazar (better known as El Nino de las Luces) to be restored. This activity was carried out by El ladron del Tiempo, the Photographic Association. It began this activity following the end of its activity due to Covid-19. The aim of the activity is to continue learning from great professionals. Javier Perez, the current president of the Association spoke to IDEAL about the workshop and how its activity has changed since it holds different exhibitions every year to add more photographers to the group. Photography is their passion. They have kept images of everyday objects and aspects as they were before.

The idea to do a workshop with El Nino de las Luces was first suggested a few years back. Javier Perez explained that we wanted to host an activity with a highly regarded photographer, but did not have the budget. They received many requests from Murcia for workshops. However, the workshop was so popular that they had to cancel the activity. The session took place on August 22 and saw 12 participants. Perez thanked the constancy for their cooperation "which has given me all kinds of facilities, but we also managed to ensure that the activity could be held at such a beautiful setting as the Fortaleza de la Mota."

Because night photography is something that members have always enjoyed, they chose this activity. We have done it from time-to-time. He said that it was very fascinating to see how El Nino de las Luces' Light Painting technique works live. The technique is very simple. All you need to do is place the light source in a dark area and use flashlights, flashlights, and other inventions to create light and take long exposure photos. It takes practice and a lot of time to achieve amazing results, as Pedro Javier has shown. It was very personal, so attendees were able to make the most of the training time. However, if they had more time, they might have looked for new angles and ways to practice the technique.

The activity of the photographic society has changed as they were unable to attend meetings or to take photographs during the pandemic. This situation is frustrating for us all, but most of our partners don't have to live like this. It's just a hobby. It has not had an impact on us as other industries. The president acknowledged that it has not affected our normal photographic activities. This Light Painting activity marks a new start to activity. Most of the activities are group activities and are not recommended at this time.

They have used the confinement time to photograph from the window, or objects and utensils in daily life. I believe that confinement has opened up new ways and ideas to take photos or to learn new things. It was a creative and interesting experience for me to take photographs at home of my surroundings. Many tutorials and Webinars have been offered on photography via the Internet to all photography fans. Some members have also followed these tutorials. Javier Perez stated that it has made confinement more fun and that many things can be learned.

They are hopeful that the situation will improve and they can resume their rhythm. It was already a regular occurrence for the group's members to grow each year, adding more photographers. They organized various events within and outside the town. They were encouraged to exhibit their work and take part in other initiatives, such as talks, educational meetings and courses. Perez said that they have tried to be known by this activity and to appreciate photography as an additional cultural element in Alcala. He also stressed the importance of the techniques learned during the course, which brings a lot creativity to photography. You are not failing to achieve your goals.
