Posing Guides are sets of images showing different way for a model to pose. Art Nude photography is all about pose, and during a shoot it is sometimes difficult to remember what poses you might want a model to try. At this session we will work with KarenR, an experienced art nude model, to enable each person to create their own posing guide.
Myself, the model (and the event attendees, if they wish) will bring along ideas and possibly images showing example poses. Each of these poses will be recreated by the model and each photographer will get the opportunity to photograph the pose. Everyone will get to shoot each pose in turn before we move on to the next pose.
We will create and shoot poses in three different set-ups. On a box (as shown on the eFlyer), standing or floor level on a plain background, and finally against a wall.
At the end of the evening for each scenario we will each have a set of images that show scores of different art nude poses, all under the same lighting conditions. You can then refer to this guide when working with other models in the future.
Our model for the event will be KarenR. Karen is regular model at Ian’s Studio and is very experienced as an art nude model. You can find Karen’s portfolio on Purpleport : http://purpleport.com/portfolio/karenr/?referrer=ianbutty (NSFW)
