Attended a workshop given by Elizabeth Opalenik at the Center for Photography in Woodstock, NY. We worked with five models (four women and one gentleman) doing figure studies in the great Catskill outdoors. In addition to traditional work, we learned about the use of fabrics and their translucence dry and wet. We explored using motion to create drama, and we played around with a digital camera converted to infrared. In fact, in using infrared with models, I was inspired to have my older Nikon D40 converted to infrared.
Here are some photos from the workshop:
Here's one with a more infrared look:
An example of one with motion:
And an experiment with fabric:
I'll be putting this new knowledge to work with both digital and film. I'm so excited!
