Due to its overwhelming success last year, we’re bringing back Lighting the Human Form, incorporating valuable lessons from our first offering to make this class better than ever!
Lighting the Human Form revolves around the concept of studio lighting for figurative art. While this often translates to fine art nude photography in my work, it can also encompass boudoir, bodyscapes, fitness, maternity, and more. Each of these genres celebrates the human form, utilizing light, shadows, and posing to convey timeless stories of the human condition, stories that persist even in the age of AI.
During the live-demonstration photoshoot, I’ll tether my camera to the projector, allowing everyone to witness the shoot unfold in real-time. You’ll learn innovative lighting techniques and observe firsthand how I guide individuals through posing, regardless of their experience.
While I utilize an array of light modifiers, such as reflectors, strip boxes, umbrellas, optical spots/snoots, projectors, and custom-designed 3D-printed accessories, this class is about more than just mastering equipment. The true essence of this class lies in learning how to create emotionally resonant and impactful images, using these tools to elevate your artistry.
Photographing boudoir, bodyscapes, or fine art nudes is an advanced skill, requiring mastery of not only the photography gear but also the ability to conduct shoots in a manner that instills confidence, safety, and empowerment in your subjects. By participating in Lighting the Human Form, I hope you’ll gain firsthand insights into how I’ve learned to work with people, producing truly remarkable images.
