Light, Language and Line Workshop

Light, Language and Line WorkshopLight, Language and Line – The Art of Studio Lighting and the Fine Art Nude

This 2½ day hands-on intensive workshop with Halifax based photographer Steve Richard will increase your understanding and mastery of advanced studio lighting concepts through the creation of art rather than the process of simply capturing an image.  The goal of the workshop is to give participants a firm understanding of shooting fine art nudes in various studio lighting environments and to introduce a new way of seeing. This course is targeted at photographers with some studio lighting experience who are looking to push their lighting knowledge to the extreme.
