Overview of the Book
Lighting the nude model is distinct from lighting in other types
of people photography.
This book is to 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
is about reaching that next level and milking nude models look
their best and most interesting.
This guide is about lighting the nude, so I’m not going to
make you sift through a lot of lighting techniques for non-nude
modeling. There is a lot you can learn about general lighting
that is not covered in this guide.
This guide deals with lighting the whole figure in most cases, or
at least three-quarters of the model’s body. Don’t look for
information about lighting close ups of the face. Knowledge of
portrait lighting is helpful, but not essential to begin shooting
