Art figure painting with light workshop

Jon Gray has been a professional photographer for over 30 years and has been shooting images for art figure for Calendars, Posters and Magazines.

The objective of this workshop is to learn how to create several different techniques for lighting a figure, this will include rim lighting, high key, low key silhouettes and projection lighting on the body.   Also how using different apertures and shutter speeds affect your image.  

We will be using a top art figure model and after each demonstration you will be working on a one to one basis.

Included in this workshop you will learn model posing techniques and subject composition.

You will also be using the latest professional studio Flash lighting and modifiers, along with learning to use different lenses and camera editing.
