THE FINE ART NUDE IN THE STUDIO: ANDREW BALFOUR
LOCATION: ANDREW BALFOUR STUDIOS, 115 HOLMWOOD AVENUE
In this two day workshop we will learn to work with the human form. Students will learn through theory, demonstration & in class assignments to direct the model & to use proper studio lighting techniques to sculpt the human form using light & shadow. Theory will explain the history of the nude in photography, painting & sculpture with a brief intro to the work of the masters. In class demonstrations will introduce students to proper lighting tools and techniques. We will begin with one light techniques & gradually work through more complex set ups. This is a shooting workshop. Each student will have time to photograph our (likely two different) models with Andrew’s help. Lighting equipment will be supplied & the workshop will take place in Andrew’s studio.
