Teaching beginners how to enter into the field of professional nude photography, this guide discusses a wide-range of topics-from concept through the actual shoots to editing and review. Approached systematically, the easy flow of steps provide invaluable insight into determining artistic versus commercial imagery, finding models who suit the work's goal, techniques for working with models, selecting the appropriate environment and lighting, maintaining direction and a quick pace during a session, and processing the images and experiences. Also included is information on creating a website, designing a portfolio, and preparing for gallery presentation. The ideas and direction expressed in this volume are designed as a starting point for even greater artistic expression or commercial success with photographing nudes.
