Last weekend was the first official Art of Nude Photography workshop that I’ve run for Foto Frenzy - Brisbane’s leading photography course and workshop company. We had two amazing models – Mea Culpa and Frankie Vandellous and a great little group of photographers involved.
While predominately a practical workshop, we started with a presentation which outlined the different genres of nude photography, covered some tips on working with models in both a studio and outdoor environment and also talked about using window light, studio lighting and natural light outdoors.
It was then time to start taking pictures so we went through a couple of daylight / window light techniques, with each photographer getting ample time to shoot with both models. After lunch we continued shooting, this time with a variety of studio lighting setups, including both high key and low key examples.
All in all it was a great day of photography in the Foto Frenzy studio and apart from Frankie finding the air conditioning a little too cold, everyone had a really enjoyable day and the photographers learnt a lot about the Art of Nude Photography.
