FINE ART NUDE PHOTOGRAPHY WORKSHOP

4TH - 8TH DECEMBER 2017

9:00AM – 5:00PM DAILY

 

Do you want to shoot stunning fine art nudes but don’t feel confident organising a professional model and location?  Would you like to learn more about photographing nudes, from model selection to digital processing?

Spend five days with master fine art photographer Len Metcalf, and learn the trade secrets from someone who knows.  Len has been producing stunning nude images and sharing his expertise in boutique classes and workshops for over ten years.  

Len will reveal his insider tips to the nude modelling world, including booking and working successfully with figure models.  Learn the specifics of how to pose and support your model, and construct powerful images through sound composition.  You will also analyse the work of great nude photographers and discuss their strengths and weaknesses.  Len will demonstrate his way of working with models in a variety of locations.

In the field with Len, take the opportunity to experiment with delicate nuances of natural light and sculpting the figure in natural light.  After the shoots, participate in valuable group critique sessions and look in on hands-on demonstrations of Len’s digital workflow.  Explore processing nude figures to bring the best out of your images. 

This is a unique opportunity to work with professional models in an outdoor setting and develop your own stunning nude portfolio.
