Studio Lighting Workshop, November 17
This is a true workshop where you will learn a variety of lighting techniques and setups from portrait, fine art, fashion and glamor photography. You will be photographing, Rhus, a very beautiful, experienced and talented model from Washington DC. As a participating photographer you will have the opportunity to shoot one on one with Rhus as we explore the use of studio lights and natural light. Models are chosen on their abilities to strike appropriate poses with limited direction and for their experience and knowledge of lighting and photography. The model will pose clothed and nude allowing us to see how light and shadow help create moods and emotions in fine art nude, boudoir and fashion images. Participants will have the use of a boom for overhead lighting, soft boxes, umbrellas, snoots and backgrounds from muslin to seamless paper. Images from previous workshops can be seen here:
