Filmed live on location at The Academy Week in Ireland, follow along with the delegates in this in-depth series of films that take you from the basics to the creative of photographing people. From basic portraits, through Editorial, to Couples, Boudoir, Sports Physique and Nudes, Academy Master Mark Cleghorn and Kenny Martin give you all the knowledge and skills to take your images to the next level.
Shooting Nudes is all about bring shape, structure and grace to accentuate the lines of the body. Kenny demonstrates how to use simple but strong lighting and a black background to create beautiful, dramatic images. A key part to shooting nudes is also the etiquette, so Kenny explains the do’s and don’ts of working with nude models and why professional nude models are worth every penny for this style of shooting. He then goes through how to position and light using the Clock & Compass method for simple, dramatic and repeatable lighting you can recreate time after time.
