Art Nude Workshop

Saturday, 16 July 2011 , 10:00 AM – 4:00 PM
Location: Ian’s Studio

At this workshop I will demonstrate a number of art nude set-ups.  There will be printed notes detailing the lighting set-ups being used.

The day will be suitable for those who are a little unsure about where to start with art nude photography; but time will be built into the day to enable more experienced photographers to build on these set-ups.

I will be booking an established female art-nude model who will be working with us through out the day.  I hope to also book a male art-nude model for the afternoon session.  Subject to both models being willing we will finish the afternoon session by looking at some set-up incorporating both modes.

There will be opportunities to create high-key (white background) images, low-key (black background) images and bodyscape images.  A large selection of props will be available to enhance the images and to help inspire you with ideas.

Details of the models to be announced shortly.

Cost £82 per person (this includes lunch and printed notes).
