Syx New Nude Workshop Image

Bring Your Own Nude is a brand new and exciting way to explore nude photography.

Brought to you by internationally published instructor Syx Langemann, this workshop will provide a shooting experience unlike any other.

This one-day workshop will focus on cultivating your own personal vision of "The Nude." Allow your creativity to flow and your ideas to come to life. We supply the studio space, professional lighting set-ups, and guided instruction – you provide the nude model!

After many years of instructing nude photographic workshops in a variety of different formats, Syx found that photographers are consistently presented with "our" models and, as such, "our" idea of beauty.

After some discussion, Syx developed this open-format nude photography workshop, which calls for each photographer to bring in his or her own subject. This unique workshop will assist photographers in bettering model rapport, as well as flexing their resourcefulness and visual style.

Day one will open with a 2 hour introduction and group discussion as to how the day will proceed. The rest of the day is organized as a series of scheduled rotating shooting sessions, followed by a group discussion to end the day. Your instructor will visit and assist each student in the afternoon, offering valuable direction and critique.

Day two will be a half-day editing and review session. Photographers are encouraged to bring in their best images for a group review and discussion. This will allow the group to share their experiences and struggles, as well as their stunning images. Syx will demonstrate his personal workflow using both Lightroom & Photoshop to edit and retouch his raw images as well as select images from the group. Laptops are encouraged as well as working current versions of your preferred Adobe program.

Small class size (limited to 8 students) means this will be an intimate workshop experience with plenty of time for one-on-one instruction.

Learning Objectives:

- Help the photographer build better "model rapport"

- Work to successfully express the nude in various lighting set-ups

- Learn to collaborate with your model and work as a team to achieve your visual goals

**Note that this is one full day of shooting and a half day of review/post processing

Please Note: SLR Camera only
