This past weekend I taught a class for Unique Photo in Fairfield, NJ on the Human Form. This four hour workshop included a little over an hour of lecture, 45 minutes of demonstration, and 2 full hours of time to shoot with two fantastic models. We had two lighting setups, and students had plenty of time to experiment with lighting and poses.
Below are two images I captured during the demonstration part of the workshop. I've included the notes from the class for you to review. Enjoy!
In this image the main light was the beauty dish, and the final image had beautiful rembrandt lighting on the face, stunning curves, and an overall dramatic result.
In this behind the scenes image, we are capturing the semi-silhoutted white blow-out background shot. Joel (assistant near the model) is there to brace the model in case she fall after doing difficult dance poses. The students look on and snap a few shots before getting two hours of shooting time with the models.
