In this comprehensive guide to nude photography, successful commercial photographer, Ric Young, shows how to create top-quality fine art nude images without having a studio full of gear and a roster of eager models. He offers tips for finding willing models and how to make the shoot a success for both the photographer and the model by avoiding common interpersonal conflicts and misunderstandings that can derail the session. The guide then details technical aspects of the shoot, including how to get great photos with any camera, how to use light sources effectively, how to make the most of each setting, and how to enhance images with postproduction computer software. The book concludes with a chapter called How I Created It,” in which the author provides a behind-the-scenes look at more than a dozen shoots, demonstrating in a comprehensive way how all the previous principles come into play on real assignments.
