Maximum participants: 8

This night shoot event is dedicated to exploring how we shape the human body with light.

"Chiaroscuro" is a technique of shaping form by creating a strong tonal contrast between light and dark. We will be creating form by shaping the way light falls on the human body, emphasising the interplay of light and shadow and sculpting the human figure.

Join us and explore this dramatic and unique approach to lighting under the tutelage and direction from Seng Mah of Venture Photography Workshops. You'll be shooting with the art models from the J-Shed Collective.

It's a great way to wind down the day while taking part in a special, exclusive shoot. Learn about lighting and posing for the light and come away with great black and white images that dramatise the human form. Bring some drinks and snacks to share and get into the creative mindset at this event!

Part live art modeling and part photo shoot, this is a great opportunity to get into fine art nude photography in a friendly, relaxed and supportive environment. Beginners are welcome; we'll help you set your camera up for shooting!
Places are limited only to 8 photographers, to keep the relaxed and easy-going atmosphere. Book in early to avoid missing out.
