I’m teaching a class this weekend entitled “Nudes in Nature”. I’m out of my comfort zone with this workshop, as I really don’t shoot nudes outside. It’s just not my thing, mostly because the subject risks becoming clichè or trite. How many images are there of: nude on a rock, nude in front of a bush, nude on the sand, etc? I’m guessing billions. But I’m a firm believer that struggle leads to growth, so I’m all in for the course.
So how am I going to get around this? Whenever I get stuck, I go at a problem from a different angle. Forget the nudity for now and let’s focus on some concepts. We’ll fill in subject and technique later. Bear with me through a decidedly non-linear creative process after the jump.
