Photography-Friendly Event!

We look at the issue of privacy and photography this way: You can't actually stop people from taking pictures. Cameras are now so tiny you can have one in your wristwatch or even mounted on your glasses. So instead of trying to police our attendees and tell them no one can take pictures, we've decided to make rules about taking pictures. Our policy? You are welcome to take photos of anyone who has explicitly given you permission to do so. You must have that permission from every person who appears in your picture, even in the background, and if we think you haven't gotten that permission, we'll ask you about it! So bring your cellphones, digital SLRs, spy-cams, etc. Just don't be a jerk about it! Easy, right? Read on for info on our Photography Intensive!

Passionate Imagery: A 3 day photo mini-camp

Do you want to shoot steaming hot erotic photos? Be part of a very special group with Michele Serchuk as we take an immersive dive into erotic rope bondage imagery. We'll explore the reasons why we are compelled to create, we'll share favorite images from our own work, and then we'll launch into shooting new work. Come play!

You will need:
- A good digital camera, preferably a DSLR.
- If you wish to shoot indoors you will need either an on camera flash unit, or a tripod.
- A laptop for basic photo editing after our 2 photo labs.

You should be comfortable with your camera's functionality, and with any other equipment that you bring. We will not be going over camera/equipment operation or lighting technique. We will be shooting, looking at lots of erotic photography, and having an awesome time.

The Schedule for the mini-camp looks like this:

Thursday - From Inspiration to Creation
Friday - Chasing the Erotic Portrait
Saturday - Imagine It Real: The photographic narrative

Saturday Night: Student Slide Show!!!
