Workshop: Art & Form Posing Series

The West Toronto Photography Group on Meetup.com has a wide range of workshops, hosted by Phil Sutherland. On May 18th they had another installment of the Art & Form Posing Series, this time featuring Jenna L. She is a former ballerina and the posing ability of dancers never ceases to amaze me.

One of the thematic elements in this workshop used a long swath of red fabric to wrap the model. The fabric then stretched off to the sides. A few of my favourite images follow.

 High Key setup with a light to the left of the photographer at about a 45 degree angle. We were also running a smoke machine to add a 'hazy' filter.

 Lights on either side and slightly behind the model with a light to the front far left at a rather sever angle. The effect really uses light and shadow to highlight the pose.
