Lighting and Posing the Nude - Photography Workshop

Posing and Lighting the Nude

This three hour workshop (7 pm to 10 pm) is an introduction to glamour, boudoir and fine art/figurative photography for those who are interested in learning the basics of lighting and posing the nude, and do not feel they have sufficient command of lighting to work independently with a live model and lighting set ups. You will also see examples of the work of great photographers who have contributed to this genre, such as Edward Weston, Ruth Bernard, Robert Farber, Helmut Newton, and Gary Breckenheimer.

Our model for the workshop will be Amada, an excellent model with a dance background who is developing a great portfolio.

A. Basic lighting set ups for studio photography for:
