Tuesday, 28 November 2017 until 28 November 2017 7:00 PM - 10:00 PM


Ian's Studio, Woodbank Works, Turncroft Lane, Stockport, Cheshire, SK1 4AR



This is the first of a series of sessions teaching art nude lighting and photography techniques.  The sessions can be taken in any order.

This session covers three simple lighting techniques that can be used for Art Nude photography.  The lighting set-ups covered at this session are:

  • White background: Softbox as key light, Fill light plus blown out white background (model seated with back to camera)
  • Grey background: “Badger Lighting” two lights either side of the model gives a range of effects depending on how you pose your subject.
  • Black background: Sandwich Lighting

The session is a practical session and you will have the opportunity to practice these types of lighting by photographing a model.  You will be provided with lighting diagrams for the lighting set-ups taught at this session.

The model for this event will be Ahsatan (http://purpleport.com/portfolio/ahsatan/?referrer=ianbutty).  Ahsatan was last at the studio for our Friday Night Taster Event in October – you can see images of her at that event here: http://photos.imb.biz/model/shoot/ahsatan-taster

Please note: That we have a number of Art Nude sessions.  Each session is designed to teach different techniques, with the minimum of overlap.  The sessions can be done in any order and no previous studio experience is required for any of the sessions.

Suitable for: Anyone wanting to learn how to art nude photography in the studio.  Your camera must have a standard hot-shoe to accommodate the lighting trigger.  You will need to be able to set your camera to manual mode and select an aperture in the range f/5.6 – f/11.  No prior studio experience is necessary

A minimum of three photographers booking will be required to run this event.
