Nude and Beauty Photography
What does it take to get a great nude photograph--to choose the right model, make her feel comfortable, style her to best effect, and place her in eye-catching compositions? A top photographer, a former model herself, reveals all the details of what goes on in her studio and how she plans and carries out a shoot. Using an array of nude photographs and a personal, chatty style, Brown explains how she selects and directs her models, emphasizing that while physical imperfections can be disguised (she'll tell you how) nothing hides a lack of personality--and that makes for a dead photo. Find out what to do when faced with someone inexperienced, nervous about going nude, or chosen by a client who doesn't share your taste. Take advantage of expert and very practical advice on where to find staff, what to do when things are going wrong and you must get the shot, and how to achieve a subtle eroticism with drapery or through a model's glance. Plus: Brown's favorite model gives her perspective, too!
