Icy Blue Nudes

Well I just returned from conducting another set of Editorial Nude and Glamour, Beauty and the Nude photography workshops in wonderful Las Vegas—and again, our models and assistants outdid themselves as always—busting their butts to ensure the attending photographers captured some great images in a learning, but fun environment.
Normally I don’t do much shooting at these workshops, as I’m usually too busy providing hands-on photography instruction along with ensuring the models are on time and on set with the make-up and hair all ready to go. While workshops are fun and educational for everyone, they don’t call them “work” shops for nothing, but this time, I squeezed a few shots in, especially since I’m working on two new books, including my sixth photography book, Photographing Women, in addition to my seventh book, Photographing Nude Women, that I’ll co-illustrate with up and coming photographer Stephanie Gomez, yes, my daughter.
A book sure to draw attention, as it’s on (father/daughter) editorial nude photography of women—to make sure no one misinterprets this, my beautiful daughter is the co-photographer contributing to the book, not one of the subjects. Even though we plan on doing some photography shoots of models together, we’ll also do shoots on our own, at different locations—so I decided to get a head start at the Las Vegas photography workshop location and I hope you enjoy these images.
In the case of all the photos on this photoblog post, all images were created with my Canon 5D Mark II with the white balance manually set between 3200K and 3400K and for the best bokeh effect a lens can deliver, I used the Canon 85mm F/1.2L USM lens, set between F/1.2 to F/4.0, depending on my camera angle. Shutter speeds varied from 1/250th to 1/1250th, ISO was set at 160 for all photos. All photos captured on HoodmanUSA’s “RAW” compact professional flash cards, 16GB with 675X UDMA 6 ratings.
