A MASTERCLASS IN FINE ART PORTRAITURE

Drawing inspiration from her years as a painter, Gemmy Woud-Binnendijk creates painterly portraits with a camera. Her imaginative concepts, meticulous planning, and attention to every detail result in fine art photography portraits that belong on museum walls. Gemmy shares her understanding of historical approaches to lighting, wardrobe selection, and character-building before taking you into Photoshop where she gives her portraiture the final polish.

 


THE FINE ART PHOTOGRAPHY PROCESS

 

In this photography tutorial Gemmy reveals her entire creative process and demonstrates the techniques used to create her beautiful painterly images in-studio and in Photoshop. From start to finish watch Gemmy bring her ideas to life from initial concept, building the set, hair & makeup, and the final output in Photoshop.

LEARN STEP-BY-STEP HOW GEMMY CREATES HER PAINTERLY PORTRAITS

PRE-PRODUCTION

Starting with pre-production, Gemmy walks through how she conceptualizes and finds inspiration for her images. She then works with her trusted stylist and assistant to create a distinct look and style for the fine art portrait.

Artist Icon

ON SET

On set, Gemmy sets up and tests studio lighting, meticulously placing and dialing in the desired power and quality of light required for her painterly style. You then see her pose and communicate with her subject, direct her stylist, and work entirely through capturing an image on set.

PHOTOSHOOTS



Once an image is captured, Gemmy then demonstrates her unique and thorough Photoshop post production workflow to see the final portrait realized. Throughout the tutorial, you'll go behind the scenes on two complete photo shoots and their respective retouching processes.

RETOUCHING


Finally, Gemmy challenges you with a homework assignment to create an image of your own. RAW files, composite elements, a Photoshop action, and final images are all included with the purchase of this tutorial.

 

 

WELCOME TO MY PORTRAIT STUDIO

Hi,

 

Beauty, for me, is to create an image where all the elements melt and then come together solidly.

I want to welcome you to my tutorial, an in-depth look into my creative process where we will create several pieces together, and I'll show you how.

While I consider myself a Dutch contemporary artist, I fell in Love with photography because I can use the camera as a tool to get my creative vision onto the canvas much faster than a brush and in much more detail.

I love the painterly lighting found in paintings of the 17th century. These have become the aesthetic that layers velvet colors across a canvas of deep shadow and glinting highlights- to create an image full of shadow, light with a beautiful stillness in-between.

To tell a story through the use of lines, light, color, and the contrast between them is how I approach many jobs and personal projects. If you are like me and have an obsession with creating, I believe you will appreciate what I give in this tutorial.

You will see how we do the initial concept with the costumes, set-building, styling and post-production. I hope you can find methods that I use and adapt what you need into your workflow.

I believe in exploring the relationship between the painters of the past and artists of today, between analogue details and digital pixels, between reality and fantasy, between the banal and the ideal, between light and shadow and between textured motion and pearlescent stillness.

I believe you can to.

 

With Love,

Gemmy Woud Binnen-Dijk

Her work, heavily influenced by understanding light used by painters during the Golden Age, are modern portraits with a true painterly feel.

""The most rewarding part being a photographer/retoucher for me are the personal projects, they allow me to create my own imaginary world in which everything is possible, a space to translate stories and emotions to an image. I find my self to photograph models who are not perfectly fitting the beauty standard. For me they are way more interesting to capture." - Gemmy "
