Figure Lighting: A Visual Guide to Illuminating the Female Nude for Photography (Hardcover)
Lighting the nude model is distinct from lighting in other types of people photography. This book will help those who have tried some nude lighting, but are struggling to create interesting images. The serious photographer who is new to nudes will also benefit. This guide deals with lighting the whole figure in most cases, or at least three-quarters of the model's body. This guide is about reaching that next level and making nude models look their best and most interesting.
Sections include concepts, equipment, locations, studio, outdoor, exercises, problems and solutions.
This guide demonstrates lighting for photographing a beautiful model to bring out her best and most fascinating features. There are plenty of books that tell you how to hide your subject's flaws; this is not one of those books. You won't find any tips for making regular people look slimmer, taller, or more beautiful. What you will find are illustrated examples and step-by-step instructions for creating photographs of beautiful nude women.
