The Conceptual Nude with Jennifer Emery (One session)
- June 30, 2018
10:00 am - 6:00 pm
The history of art is replete with depictions of the human body. A timeless and classic subject, photographing the nude can range from fine art, boudoir and swimsuit photography to light-sculpting photography such as dancers and athletes.
In this one-day workshop, students will start with a concept or theme that will open up their creativity and approaches to capturing the nude. While this workshop will cover many technical aspects of what makes a lasting nude image, the emphasis will be on working with models and the concept of the powerful nude to create images that truly reflect the strength and artistry of the human form. The most powerful nude images come not from removing their physical presentation from their emotional, sensual and intellectual presence but rather making sure that a photograph truly reflects all these elements.
Jennifer Emery will begin the day with lecture, discussion and presentation of her approaches and techniques to capturing the nude. After lunch, the class will travel to a nearby beautiful modern home where the students will meet with the models. The majority of the day will be spent working closely with the models and learning how to best capture the poetic spirit of the nude. The last part of the day will consist of a critique and conversation about work created during the workshop. Jennifer will draw lessons from her recently published book, The Nude, Conceptual Approaches to Fine Art Photography. Students are encouraged to bring a DSLR camera equipped with a hot shoe or sync connection.
