The nude is a difficult subject to light. This book gives ideas on lighting nude and semi-nude figures, based on successful examples by established and renowned photographers. This revised edition features all new three-dimensional illustrations, plus new images from photographers working in digital. The pictures in "Lighting for Nude Photography" are both beautiful and inspiring, covering full nude and semi-nude erotica, working from natural light and simple light setups, to complex multi-light arrangements. The accompanying diagrams provide a starting point for readers to experiment with their own photography.
