The Photographer's Guide to Nudes

By John Freeman

One of the most specialist aspects of professional photography, nudes are a complicated and often under-represented art form. This book covers all areas that should concern the nude photographer including working with models, use of props and the respective merits (and problems associated with) indoor and outdoor shoots. Diagrams complement the issues raised and also the photographs. Equipment is discussed in detail, from the most basic flash-gun to a professional studio set-up, as well as the best cameras to use in a variety of different situations. Subjects range from classical, glamour, fetish, water and symmetry, to use of hair and makeup, ring flash and creating digital composites – all achieveable by even those with the most modest of equipment.
