Sam Eichenwald presents: Light Painting
Sam Eichenwald is a rising senior at St. Mark’s School of Texas in Dallas and has attended there since 1st grade. He entered the photography program in the 8th grade and his teacher is Scott Hunt. He has received many accolades for his photography, such as in the annual Richardson Photography Contest. Recently, he was named to the ATPI Texas Imagemaker Team, a group of the top ten student photographers in the state based on previously received awards.
Although he does not limit the type of photography he shoots to a single category, Sam has taken a special interest in “light painting” photography after being taught by the DFW-based photographer Noel Kerns. He will discuss how he takes these photos, the materials he uses, and why he decided to take up “light painting.”
