Lightpainting the nude......

A portrait is not a likeness. The moment an emotion or fact is transformed into a photograph it is no longer a fact but an opinion. There is no such thing as inaccuracy in a photograph. All photographs are accurate. None of them is the truth.
— Richard Avedon

We are pleased to invite you to our next Nude Photography Workshop that for this special occasion will be focused on Lightpainting Technique.

After the success of first light painting event I would like to run a bigger, better event where to discover the power of light painting to freeze movement, the secret nature of light capable to evocate the most intriguing photographic ghost.

This will be a step-by-step instructional class devoted to the creative lighting technique of Lightpainting. This class is for any photographer interested in learning creative lighting techniques.

During the evening you will first be introduced to the basics of Lightpainting followed by a practical demonstration. After the demonstration everyone will have his/her own time to try the technique on our LIVE model.

Practical information of how to approach Lightpainting, along with insightful strategies, unique equipment applications, and commentaries will be featured throughout this instructional class.

In addition to the traditional lighpainting techniques we will experiment my light dance technique too, hush-hush, top secret......

Luca Monti has run workshops for the last 20 years both in Paris and Rome. He will be available to answer all your questions and to help you during the shooting together with his collaborators. All our workshops are suitable for both beginners and intermediate photographers.

The maximum number of participant is limited to 8 persons to allow everyone to shoot in a relaxed and friendly studio environment.
