ABSTRACT

Nude photography can be intimidating, for the artist and the subject. Technique, creativity, and psychology all need to be considered and executed seamlessly to achieve a photographer‘s desired artistic and professional result. Author Louis Benjamin has built a career by studying the intricacies of the perfect nude photography photo shoot and he has compiled what he has learned for you in this second edition of the best-selling book, The Naked and the Lens. This revised text updates and builds upon the key concepts presented in the first edition that guide photographers from finding models and planning a shoot, all the way through to post production. New material includes discussions of the latest equipment, software, web publishing options, as well as fresh and more diverse photographs and interviews.
