Fotografía de belleza – Curso online de Nicolás Cuenca


Hi, my name is Nicolás Cuenca,
I’m a photographer specializing in beauty
and fashion photography. I love photographic portraiture
and I find my inspiration in the range of emotions
that can be conveyed by a look. My photos have been part
of advertising campaigns for fashion brands
like Japön, Dorothy and Tusk. Magazines like “Vanidades,”
“Lucy’s,” “Yoko” and “Kunst” regularly publish my photos. I see beauty photography as a sub-genre and a hybrid between
fashion photography and portraiture. Its objective is showcasing
a person’s beauty from a more intimate viewpoint,
through close-up shots that allow us
to deconstruct the basic portrait, adapting it to each person’s imaginary. In my photos,
lighting is carefully chosen to enhance the mood
and feelings I want to convey. In this Domestika course I’ll explain the applications of beauty photography. For the final project
we’ll plan and create a photo production
with only a source of light. The aim will be to achieve
a high-quality beauty photograph to expand our portfolio
and get experience in the field. We’ll start by seeing
the difference between test, editorial photography
and commercial commissions. We’ll carry out a work plan and I’ll show you how to do a briefing. First, we’ll see the possibilities in lighting with artificial light, and we’ll learn
how to take beauty photos using only one natural light source, and what type of camera configuration we’ll need for our photographs. I’ll explain how to do a workflow with some digital developing as we work through the project. We’ll see the different techniques
of model direction and image composition. Last, we’ll do the post-production, we’ll prepare the files to retouch them efficiently
in Photoshop, and then export them for the different
media where we want to show them. When you finish,
you’ll have the necessary knowledge to take beauty and portrait photographs. For this course,
you’ll need a camera and lens, a room with a window as source of light, a flash with radio trigger,
a light stand, umbrella diffuser, and a computer with Photoshop. Discover through your own eyes the beauty in forms and expressions
that a face can convey. Beauty Photography
