Nudes on Location: Posing and Lighting for Photographers Paperback – April 7, 2015 by Bill Lemon (Amherst Media)
Bill Lemon is a veteran shooter who has mastered the art of creating evocative nude and glamour images in an endless array of locations and scenarios, achieving striking, evocative portraits every time. In his newest book, Bill teaches readers how to re-create some of his favorite portrait looks outdoors, where the stakes are high, the light is every changing, and environmental unknowns lurk at every corner. Presenting 60 main images, Bill provides readers with a bottom-up look at the strategy used to create the shot —from the conceptualization, to the location scouting, to the camera and lens settings, to the posing and composition. You’ll discover great tips for inspiring the model’s confidence, creating graceful lines in the body, maximizing body contours with light an shadow to emphasize the model’s assets and downplay flaws, and more. In each of the sixty portrait sections, you’ll find supplemental images that show how lights and/or modifiers were positioned, how image flaws were corrected, and/or review alternate poses that will help the model build variety in her portfolio.
