Ray Bidegain, The Meaningful portrait and the studio nude workshop
July 13, 2019 10am-5pm
Spend the day working in a beautiful daylight studio with photographer Ray Bidegain. During this 4 hour workshop we will explore making portraits in natural light that transcend beyond the identity of the model to make meaningful works of art. We will challenge ourselves to make photographs working with a professional nude model to make work that is both contemporary and classical at the same time. We will embrace beauty every step of the way and well-seen photographs will be our goal. There will be 2 sessions for the day with a short lunch break so a packed lunch is in order. This class is limited to 6 students to be sure everyone has time to make the work that is in their hearts.
Topics for the day will include:
• pose and gesture
• concept and ideas
• working with models, amateur and professional
• finding models to work with and space to rent for projects
A critique session will be scheduled in the weeks following the session for anyone who would like feedback on the work they have made.
