Combining the two distinct genres of nude and landscape photography offers unique emotional and conceptual possibilities. The goal of this class is for each student to work towards a singular, meaningful voice that conveys his or her sense of human experience. Students will learn to identify the qualities of nature and light that help transform and connect figures to the inspiring Cape locations within which they are shooting. Participants also will deal with practical concerns of posing and directing models as they collaborate with them to create evocative images. There will be critiques and discussions throughout the week.
