Jasmyn Nude 01

I rarely shoot art nudes and I will only shoot them if a I have a good concept to do so. In fact, it's been almost 2 years since I did my last art nude.

In this case I wanted to give the Pentax 645z a bit of a test with skin tones and also I had an idea with some lighting that I wanted to try.

The lighting is a single grided...

One last shot

After a 2 hour concept shoot with Thai model Miniam. She walked out of the dressing room to collect her shoes before getting dressed and heading home. I asked if I could get a shot of her with just the sheet she was covered in and with no make up on. This was the last shot of the day.

I find standing nudes or even portraits to be a challenge. I usually want...

To shoot these individuals who have amazing bodies and chemistry it was a no-brainer to use my default single strobe set up. The AD600 pro was positioned above and centre on a stand with boom arm so every nook and cranny was exaggerated with defined shadow. I...
