Appleton Photo Training Art Nude Workshop at Saracen House Studio Milton Keynes

Art Nude Photography Workshop

How do you define Art Nude? This course begins with a good look at the genre, including a range of examples to cement our ideas. Next, we get our heads around how to organise an Art Nude shoot so that everything runs smoothly. Everything you need to know is covered - from sourcing and booking your model to finding a location - together with instruction on the poses and etiquette of this photographic art form.

That leaves the whole afternoon free for the practical side of the workshop. In the studio, you will learn hands-on how to define body shape using one, two and three lights with tuition on how to position each one. There’s a detailed demonstration of which modifiers to use and the effects you can achieve, with plenty of time for you to shoot each setup.

You will learn how to photograph the human form in a variety of positions, working on the aesthetics of shape and form. Using a single light, discover how to create the dramatic low key bodyscapes which are a distinctive style of the genre. We then begin adding more lights to achieve high and low key images of our model in various different poses: sitting, standing and leaning. A particularly valuable aspect of the afternoon is the opportunity to direct the model who will be experienced in the genre and able to help you to achieve some great images.

Included in the Event:

  • Refreshments on arrival, lunch and afternoon tea
  • Classroom tuition from an award-winning trainer
  • Hands-on practical shoot time to practise and embed your learning
  • A professional model experienced in the genre
  • Comprehensive course notes
