Lighting and Posing the Nude

Our three hour workshop 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 want to increase their 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, Ralph Gibson and Gary Breckheimer.

We will have Terra, as our art nude model for the workshop.

Terra is a model, actress and athlete, so offers a great variety of looks to the workshop.
