Fine-Art Nude Photography Masterclass by Lindsay Adler

La célèbre photographe de mode new-yorkaise Lindsay Adler se rend à Genève pour enseigner au Swiss Photo Club. Les cours ayant lieu dans la langue maternelle de Lindsay, le texte suivant est également disponible en anglais.

Artists have studied and captured the nude human form for centuries. Photographing nudes can be a truly artistic and liberating experience focusing on concept, light and form. You can shoot abstracts, powerful compositions, and the stunning contours of the human body. Still, successful nude photography takes a great deal of thought and preparation. You must consider location, lighting, props, posing and more in order to execute a striking nude image.

The lecture portion of this class covers inspiration, finding and selecting models, equipment, posing, lighting, basic retouching and more! You will learn tips for interacting with the models, ideas for poses, and foolproof lighting techniques.

Lindsay will begin the class by discussing to core essentials of posing a fine art nude subject – how you can use posing to shape the body into beautiful shapes to fit your creative vision. Next we will learn how lighting sculpts the human form, and how you can use this to your advantage to flatter your subject and create interest in your image. Then… we shoot! Lindsay will provide you with a wide range of stunning subjects to photograph and create striking works of art.
