Pretty cool event and workshop being offered by Boudoir Louisville Photography. As you can see from the photos below, they clearly are first class and know how to put on a workshop.
According to them they are “…specializing in classic boudoir and retro pinup girl photography in Louisville, Lexington, Cincinnati, Indianapolis, Ft. Knox, Nashville and beyond!” That sure seems to be the case and now I have a reason to get back to the states. Check out their post about the workshop below, and double check those photos they made, meow!
That’s right kids, Boudoir Louisville is offering a snazzy vintage boudoir workshop.
We have secured, what we believe, to be the most AWESOME location for this type of workshop. Here in Louisville, Kentucky we have an abundance of preserved historical buildings in our downtown area. The Palace Theater has to be the GRANDEST of them all! I mean, look at this place!
Elegant and ornate, The Palace exhibits a Spanish Baroque motif with arcades, balconies and turrets. All of which are PERFECT for photo shoots! Cobalt blue, bursts of red and gold indirectly light all of the niches, coves and entrances. Above is a curved, vaulted ceiling with 139 sculptures of the faces of historical figures. The theater room inside The Palace is heavily ornamented and displays an imitation nighttime sky on the ceiling.
The theater is two stories with a floor and a balcony. Both floors contain bars that run the width of the building behind the theater, separated by a grand lobby of intricate art and architecture.
Its uncommon appearance has made it a popular venue for musicians to record live performances (including Alison Krauss). The theatre features an array of popular movies, old and new, as well as concerts by popular artists.
Now that I have your attention, I’ll give you some details.
If you have looked at any of my photos, and I’m sure you have if you want to come to my workshop, you’ll notice that I light everything. Even photos that look like they were shot with natural light were snapped using some sort of lighting. I am a firm believer in repeatability. Using some sort of lighting makes this happen! Lighting your photo shoots also allows you to shoot in fantastic locations like the one pictured above. Without proper lighting in this location you would have a ton of really dark and grainy images.
