One Day Boudoir Workshop with Marti Newkirk

Marti Newkirk – Saturday June 16th, 2018

9:00 am – 5:00 pm

The Residence Inn

Gulf Coast Towne Center, 10054 Gulf Center Dr., Fort Myers, FL


Boudoir is for Every Body

Many of our potential customers believe that boudoir photography is only for those with perfect bodies but nothing could be further from the truth. Join Marti as she shares with you how she poses and lights her boudoir customers to showcase their best! We will discuss lighting with single and multiple lights with a variety of modifiers to bring attention where you want it to be. We will also discuss posing to flatter your subject with tips to bring out her favorite features and keep the viewers eyes away from areas she is not so fond of.  What we can’t hide with shadows and posing, we will learn to handle with our composition or camouflage in a variety of creative ways. We will discuss how we talk with customers and how to set them at ease during the session.

You will also get to put your new found knowledge into practice with a live photo session. Marti will be right there to help guide you and answer any questions that come up while applying her techniques. Bring your camera and laptop for editing (time allowing). No lighting is necessary as it will be provided.

This workshop is limited to 18 attendees. This allows for a more intimate setting for instruction and photographing.
