SALVE MATER SUMMER WORKSHOP: 5 DAY OF ARTISTIC NUDE PHOTOGRAPHY

[ back ]    

5 days artistic nude photography - edition Summer 2016 

Learn techniques to create appealing artistic nudes

2016's theme: 'Creating seducing nude images'


How would you define a seducing image? How do we create seducing images? What light fits best? Which poses? Which composition? Which expression? How can we guide our model into poses and expression?

Participants of Pascal Baetens' five day nude photography workshop can look forward to an intense and inspiring photographic experience! During those five days, you will be gently guided to develop your own photographic concept.

 

With daily feedback and expert tips from Pascal Baetens and his team, you learn to fine tune your ideas and techniques so that you  can go back home with a unique and strong collection of images.

 

Apart from Pascal's direct feedback and demonstrations, we can offer you an amazing location to work in: a former psychiatric hospital with more than 100 rooms. And of course, an enthusiastic team of gorgeous models will be standing by to realise your ideas with you. We look forward to see you at our workshop, a place where a number of strangers meet for the first time, and five days later go home as friends.
