"Fine Art and Figure Nudes" - Workshop Content and Itinerary

Please make sure to review "What to Bring" for any workshop.

"Fine Art and Figure Nudes" will present introductory to intermediate studio lighting techniques for artistic and figure nude photography. The workshop will focus on line and form, bodyscape, and classical figure study elements in a range of black and white and color tonalities.

Course Topics:

**Stylistic elements of the fine art/figure nude, as compared to portrait and glamour photography
**Lighting techniques to accent line and form and to flatter the physical features of the model
**High-key and Low-key styles and lighting techniques
**Compositional elements of full body poses as well as abstract and "bodyscape" styles
**Techniques for creating and applying "shadow crafting" as a facet of artistic composition
