Fine Art Nude Photography | Masterclass | Lindsay Adler

Wir präsentieren Ihnen einen besonderen Workshop-Leckerbissen: Die New Yorker Fashion-Fotografin Lindsay Adler kommt exklusiv für uns in die Schweiz. Da die Kurse in Lindsays Muttersprache stattfinden, ist auch der folgende Ausschreibungstext in Englisch gehalten.

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 human form is your creative canvas, and this hands-on workshop will provide you a unique opportunity to create stunning images of a wide range of fine art nude subjects. Together with world renown fashion photographer Lindsay Adler you will turn the nude human form into works of art.

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.
