I will be doing a short seminar for a lighting class at the Nude in Nature 7 ("NIN7") event on May 17 & 18 (Saturday and Sunday) in Comus, MD! The event will be held on 10 acres of private property in Montgomery County, Maryland. You may arrange to shoot anyone and anywhere you want, as there is ample space.
This will be the first NIN run by Valerie Whitaker
(yes that Valerie!) and she arranged for some of the best Models in the Mid-Atlantic region (and beyond!) to model for the event. Two days (May 17-18; SAT-SUN) of one-on-one shooting with individual models (including top models traveling to the DC area and well-established local models from VA/DC/MD), beginners' and intermediate classes and group sessions.Early Discount Tickets Early Bird and Regular Seminar Tickets
t***You MUST be signed up for NIN7 to attend the lighting seminars!***
Models can be scheduled via Model Mayhem, FB, or Email. The list of Model is frequently updated and more Models are added as more Photographer sign up so that there is a good ratio of Model to Photographers. For a listing of the Models available see the Meetup
Event pages. Please write models to discuss their availability/rates for One-on-One shoots.
Each Model Attending NIN7 this year will be Modeling for a one-hour Group Shoot or a seminar. Group Shoot times and sign-ups will be posted on the main Meetup site
and each group shoot will be limited to only 5 photographers. RSVPs will be available April 14, 2014 @ Monday 7:00pm. Group shoot sign-ups are for NIN7 Attending Photographers only.
The price of both seminars are the same. Early bird tickets are $30. Regular tickets are $45.
Lighting seminars will include natural lighting instruction for assistance in photography during NIN7. For my Sunday class, I will specifically touch on:
- finding good light
- gear that I use when using natural light
- how to handle specific challenges with natural light
- mixing natural light with flash lighting
Instruction will be followed by a shooting portion where each Photographer will have an opportunity to individually shoot the Model for each classFINE PRINT
