Photographing the Artistic Nude
April 23, 2017 from 10am to 4pm
The human body has been a subject for artists since the beginning of time and with good reason. It has the power to inspire, provoke, inflame and arouse the passions of viewers and artists alike. In this workshop we will spend time lighting and photographing the human form as well as discussing the particular challenges of this genre.
The class will begin with a discussion of nudity in art and what differentiates art nude photos from naked pictures. We will discuss the collaborative relationship between photographer and model in a round table format.
The studio portion of the class will last approximately four hours and will cover various lighting setups and artistic considerations for the nude. One aspect unique to this photo session is that models will be asked to hold a given pose for several minutes. This will allow the photographer to explore different angles and compositions in order to find an image that is new and uncommon.
Join us to learn how photographing the artistic nude can help develop your creative vision.
This class will have a maximum of 6 photographers per model with an anticipated class size of just 12 students. PLEASE sign up early to avoid disappointment.
