One to One Art Nude Photography Workshop

One to One Art Nude Photography Workshop in London – with Melissa

Last week our tutor Ion Paciu run a one to one nude photography workshop in Central London featuring Melissa as model.  Melissa was fabulous, Ion and his student used a variety of new lighting setups to create appealing art nude images.

The light used was natural light, studio lights (500w monoblocks) and, this time, a very special light source: a projector, yes, he used a projector to illuminate the model. We will list here some of the lighting and settings used in the making.

First image was shot with the model seating on a chair.

Settings: camera in Manual exposure mode (M) – shutter speed 1/160th – 100 ISO – aperture f8.

Lighting: 2 large softboxes, one on the left side at a low angle, second on the right side parallel with the model, simple lighting to create fine shaping lines and shadows and to miss the chair, model appears that is floating.
