Hosted by the Miami Fine Art Nude/Figurative Photography Group
This workshop will explore the business and craft of Boudoir Photography. The first hour (6 pm to 7 pm) will include the business aspects: i) initial meeting with your client, ii) contract and pricing, iii) preparation for the shoot, iv) the photo session, and v) follow up with client.
The second part of the workshop (7 pm to 10 pm) will be a photo shoot with a model to demonstrate lighting and posing for a basic boudoir photography portfolio, including lighting for lingiere, bodyscapes and artistic/erotic nude portraits.
The model for the workshop will be Berenika (Nika) from Eastern Europe, who has the experience and figure to cover all the aspects of a Boudoir photography shoot that you are likely to encounter with your clients (lingiere, bodyscapes, erotic art). You can see the breath of her experience and images at her Model Mayhem portfolio: http://www.modelmayhem.com/806052
The venue will be a hotel suite at a 5 Star Hotel on Millionaires Row on Miami Beach. We will use both studio strobe and continuous (hot) lights in the workshop, but previous familiarity with studio lighting is not required (but is recommended!)
By the end of the workshop, you will have had an introduction to boudoir photography and a set of images to add to your boudoir portfolio.
