Intimate Portraiture Workshop teaches the kind of classy nude imagery you might see in Italian Vogue magazine. It is about creating a beautiful and intimate image that makes use of the surrounds to add to the image.
This intensive 4 hour program is designed to maximise shooting time. Concepts are presented succinctly, demonstrated and then students are encouraged to shoot and learn via trial, feedback, suggestion and further shooting.
Each student will have opportunity to shoot throughout the workshop - this is a DOING workshop - not just watching or taking notes. You will leave with a head full of new concepts and skills as well as a camera full of great images.
The workshop will be held in a fantastic location in a central area. The exact location will be sent to confirmed participants.
What you will get out of this workshop?
The skills you will learn in this workshop are applicable to all forms of portraiture and indeed all formal shoots. You will learn how to develop a concept, pose and direct your model, choose a suitable room or location and light the shot to create the image you have in mind.
You will have a great start to your nude portfolio and will have networked with likeminded local photographers and models. After attending this workshop, past participants have built their confidence shooting nudes and have gone on to undertake further nude portrait shoots.
