Film photography workshop Phoenix, AZ
Most recently, Jodi Lynn attended a Daniel Kim Photography workshop named “The Luminary Workshop”. The workshop focused on film photography; film is not a lost art! Jodi Lynn has a special place in her heart for film photography. In fact, she used to have her very own dark room in college! Film photography is an art that is still being utilized and is actually sometimes preferred over digital images. Jodi Lynn believes most people love the look of film images but don’t realize they’re actually viewing a film image. Jodi Lynn found an awesome article titled “Why Film is Still Better Than Digital” which highlights why film is still the preferred medium; especially when it comes to natural light photography. Here are some highlights from the article:
Film controls highlights well – One area where I see film having a clear advantage over digital is in natural light. Film is meant to be shot in natural light, and that’s where it thrives. It is much more forgiving when it comes to overexposure, and it doesn’t blow out highlights as easily as digital cameras. This is especially helpful when I’m using the brightest thing in our solar system as a hair light.
Film blends light and color better – Digital camera sensors, are made up of millions of tiny squares that give us an image. Film isn’t split up in such a linear way, and because of that, it naturally blends light and colors better.
Film has aesthetically pleasing grain – One of the worst things about digital cameras is also one of the best things about film, the grain. The grain that you get from film is much more pleasing and natural than digital cameras, and it adds to the texture and character of the photo.
You can shoot medium format without selling your soul – Shooting film has given me the opportunity to shoot on a camera format that I wouldn’t have been able to shoot with digital, medium format. What’s the big deal with medium format, and why does that matter? Let me simply say, shooting medium format has changed the way I approach photography.
Film photography is not a lost art
Jodi Lynn had so much fun immersing herself in The Luminary Workshop. A huge thank you to the vendors that were a part of this awesome workshop:
Connecting personally with your clients and creating emotional and moving images?
Using social media as a personal sound board to target your audience and being a company your clients can trust?
With in person sales and up selling?
With flow posing or just posing in general to make a woman look her best and feel confident while doing so?
If so, this workshop is just for you!!!!!
To teach you how to capture the essence of a woman through finding her inner beauty while using flow posing and emotional connection and in return creating a very profitable business.
This workshop is a 2 day extravaganza that provides you with a new way to explore, experience, and create art in various ways in order to refresh your creative mind. It will be an all hands on workshop where we will guide you through our process and how we connect with our clients and create amazing high end sales you never thought imaginable. We will exercise your mind in thinking differently and more creatively on one end of the spectrum for a smaller and more boutique business and on a different spectrum get you the poses you need that sell with just a few twists and turns in as few poses as possible for a higher volume paced studio.
Denise and Jodi feel that they learned the most on the other side of the camera. By putting yourself in your clients shoes both physically and emotionally you are able to open up and become more vulnerable. And by being vulnerable is where all the magic lies. Which is why we are including the 2nd day of the workshop at no extra charge. Both artists will personally photograph you and take you through an entire experience and send you home with a USB of beautiful 8 x 12 images.
Connecting personally with your clients and creating emotional and moving images that will have your clients wanting more and not being able to choose what to buy is what every business wants. We can show you just how to accomplish that.
Personal Social Media Connection and being a company your clients can trust, plays a very important role in the boutique business. Are you currently doing this? This self portrait got 258 likes, 99 comments and 5 shares.
In person sales and up selling is a very valuable tool that every business should be confident in doing. We will go over how this is done without even feeling like you are selling. The images sell themselves.
Flow posing or just posing in general to make a woman look her best and feel confident while doing so can be intimidating. But if you have just a few go to positions you can create many different angles and emotion to make an image look completely different from the next and still be a very easy sell. It’s all about the angles. We all want to look flattering. And we will show you exactly how to do that.
Denise Nicole is a fine art boudoir photographer.
She has a very personal connection to photographing women because of her past. Her experiences have made her a stronger woman today and she thrives on uplifting women and building their self confidence that we sometimes tend to lose along the way through emotive coaching and personal client connection. She reaches down deep inside to the core of a woman and finds out what truly lies beneath.
Jodi lynn has owned and operated her studio since 2010. Her main focus is boosting self confidence in women. She has worked with thousands of women, and has helped them see themselves in the eyes of others. “I want to help the women that I have the privilege of working with increase their self-acceptance and self-love by way of boudoir photography. A woman who not only accepts herself but loves herself – is an unstoppable force. I hope that all women will allow themselves the boudoir experience because every woman deserves to be a “supermodel” for a day.”
My husband and I have seven children, and I have had 5 of our kids biologically, so needless to say, my body has gone through some changes. In spite of those changes, though, my husband still makes me feel beautiful every single day and I wanted to find a way to thank him. I was hesitant and nervous about posing for intimate photos (this was a first for me), but I knew it would be something my sweetheart would cherish. From the first moment I entered Le Boudoir Studio, the ladies there made me feel completely comfortable. Jodi Lynn (photographer) and Erica (makeup and hair) were so genuine and friendly. The whole experience was positive and surprisingly liberating. And needless to say, the pictures turned out stunning, far exceeding my expectations. My husband literally wept when he saw them. This was a priceless gift for him that he will treasure for the rest of his life. Thank you Jodi Lynn for making this such a fantastically unforgettable experience.
My fiancé and I visited his niece, in Phoenix last Thanksgiving, (we live in Dallas), and she was so sweet to share with me her fantastic boudoir photos that were shot by Jodi, at Le Boudoir! They were simply extraordinary! She wanted my professional opinion, because I am an on set Photo Stylist by trade! I have worked for renowned photographers over the country and she wanted my professional opinion. Well my opinion was OMG! This gal is amazing! So..
I then had this wonderful, crazy idea to call my girlfriend, who lives in Denver, to get together for a girls weekend, and meet Jodi for a shoot! We both just got engaged at the same time and thought this would be a great gift for our guys! My girlfriend and I are friends…actually now we call ourselves sisters after a 25 year friendship! We have journeyed through a lifetime of adventures together! We’ve raised our boys.. 5 altogether.. and worked hard as single moms! We thought this was a well deserved treat for ourselves to share this experience together before we get married!
We both flew to Phoenix and had arranged our “spa” weekend away as we told our fiancés, but in truth it was all about our shoot with Jodi!
Our shoot was the most amazing, incredible day! We sipped champagne, had our hair, makeup and wardrobe completed by “the team”, and took off into an unforgettable journey of sexiness! Jodi and her gals gave us the confidence to be feminine and made us oh so pretty! It was the whole package! We are so proud of our images, and as women in our 50’s, we think we look incredible! We can’t wait to share our books with our guys! They are going to be beyond delighted!
Thanks to Le Boudoir for making this adventure one of our most memorable and definitely most “beautiful” trips ever! Love and many hugs
My words cannot express my gratitude for Denise and her beautiful photography. I was just coming out of a divorce and felt completely lost. Her loving personality, her huge heart and her willingness to do whatever needed to keep me comfortable was the perfect medicine for my broken heart. When I saw my images for the first time I was floored! I couldn’t believe that was me! Honestly something changed me on that very day. It was a moment that launched me into the new me. And I will forever be grateful for her and her talent to show me who I really was underneath all my layers. I can’t wait to get back into her studio!
I came across Denise in 2012. I was a little insecure about my body at the time. Denise made me feel so beautiful, relaxed and comfortable. The experience and photos were amazing! She gave me something I lacked, self confidence and determination. The experience made me love myself again. It made me want to take better care of my health. These last 3 years she has brought me out of my shell more and more and I can’t thank my lucky stars enough for bringing this beautiful woman into my life!
