This guide shows you how to use light to photograph nude female models and create various moods and effects. From the plainspoken to the artistic, each lighting configuration is diagramed in painstaking detail. Learn the art and skill of using light and controlling shadows from the author of True Confessions of Nude Photography. If the lighting section in the first book left you wanting more, this follow-up book concentrates purely on lighting with updated images, text and diagrams.

From indoor to outdoor, studio to location, you’ll learn what can be achieved and how to make it work for you. From just one light in a small room, to elaborate creative setups, everything is described.

If you think that great photos require expensive lights, an enormous studio, and a team of assistants, this book will debunk that misconception. You may be surprised at how many ways you can shoot great nude photos you’ll be proud of without breaking the bank. And there’s plenty more you can accomplish if you do want to invest a few well placed dollars on some moderately priced equipment. This book doesn’t promise that learning is easy or quick – your results will be based on your level of effort, but it is easier and quicker with a guide.

There are sections on Equipment, Lighting Exercises, Lighting problems, Outdoor lighting, Studio Lighting. The lighting setups include the use of softboxes, umbrellas, snoots, gels, booms, diffusers, parabolic reflectors, water nudes, and a beauty dish. Techniques include isolation, backlighting, accent lighting, and fill light. Lights Camera Nude! includes an 18 lighting setups and over 80 example photos as well as a link to online bonus material exclusively for readers.
