Fantasy Nude Photography: Use Lighting, Posing, and Digital Compositing Techniques to Create Amazing Images
Follow writer and fine art photographer, Rayment Kirby, as he takes you on a guided journey, exploring the creative art behind digital composing and refining of nude fantasy portraits. Fantasy Nude Photography takes an interesting and unique approach to a specific market, while creating lasting artwork through photography.
From original concept, to choosing perfect set designs, to lightening and posing of the model, fantasy portraiture is broken down into easy, readily accessible steps and techniques to create breathtaking portraits, followed by instructions for refining images in postproduction, with editing and layering.
I found this book to be a useful guide for the nude photographer, yet it can also be adapted for boudoir or glamour portraiture as well. It is packed full of truly unique poses and angles, along with lightening tips and techniques for those who have the desire to either expand their market audience, or simply explore a new form of visual art. The book is written by a trade professional who has a great philosophy on picture taking, and I was more than happy with his ability to transform posed studio pictures into tasteful and dramatic works of art, all the while bringing the impossible to life.
