Along with a series of tools to help the modern pin-up photographer that I’m working on (more details coming soon!) I’ve also begun to teach pin-up photography and recently held the first of several workshops this year at my studio. This was a 2 day seminar held in conjunction with Andy Armstrong from Knoxville. I’ve known Andy for sometime, and helped him beta test his awesome design|house tools. We each took a day to teach aspects of boudoir, pin-up and glamour photography and post-production.
On day one, I demonstrated a full pin-up shoot then gave instruction for posing, working with models and clients, lighting and working with a make-up artist. After lunch, we moved onto post-production and I demo’d my full workflow and retouching for pin-ups.
Andy was in charge on day two. In the morning he instructed posing and lighting for relaxed glamour photography using both flash and available light. In the afternoon, he showed his full workflow and took questions about Photoshop and retouching in general, and demonstrated products from his Design|House range of tools for digital photographers, including the great new Destination Vegas pack.
