During this workshops Lee will be shooting Lacy Lyle and also talk about his approach to shooting for Penthouse Magazine. He will take us through the Prep work, Setup, Location, Lighting, Camera Settings, Posing and much much more. After taking everyone through how its done then each photographer will photographer Lacy the same way Lee has taught using the same lighting setups. This will be a great opportunity to fine tune those outdoor shoots we see so many times in magazines and online.

In this workshop we will be using Lightroom & Photoshop and talking a look at the post production workflow techniques used by Lee Richardson to retouch skin and facial and body features (remove blemishes, even skin tone and do some nip & tuck). We will also review post production lighting techniques to create the illusion of perfect lighting that may have not been captured in the original “straight from camera” image.
