Upcoming Workshop Dates:

November 8-10, 2013 – Palm Springs, CA

[The difference between taking a picture and creating art.]

The “Mastering The Nude” photography workshop is taught by D. Keith Furon, and was designed for photographers of all levels who want to learn, develop and improve their nude photography skills. This three-day workshop will greatly improve your artistic and photographic eye, as well as develop your technical skills. An experienced live model will be present for the workshop to provide the opportunity to learn posing techniques and other skills needed to effectively work with live models.

Whether you’re a beginner, looking for their first experience with shooting nudes, or an experienced photographer this workshop will give you the guidance, knowledge and confidence in your skills at nude photography as well as help you develop your own artistic style and vision.

The workshop will provide the opportunity to work in both indoor/studio sessions as well as outdoor location photography.

To help participants take their photography to the next level, the workshop will concentrate on:

• Composition of an image to create intrigue and power.

• Creating the image before taking the picture.

• Posing models: building a rapport and getting the most out of a model’s strengths.

• Integration of elements into the scene.

• Creating Mood and drama in an image: Combining technical skills and aesthetics.

• Making a visual statement rather than just taking a picture.

• Working with contrast in textures and tone.

The workshop will provide a relaxed, fun and supportive environment of learning and development. And to ensure the best experience, workshops will be limited to 6 participants. Workshop participants will also receive a free, signed copy of D. Keith Furon: The First Thirty Years.

The workshop will be held at D. Keith Furon’s studio in the world-famous destination of Palm Springs, California, which also offers many amazing desert locations for shooting opportunities. A list of hotels in the immediate area will be provided upon registration.
