9781608957071: Fantasy Nude Photography: Use Lighting, Posing, and Digital Compositing Techniques to Create Amazing Images

Of the many different types of fine art photography, fantasy nudes are among the more creative and daring. Since we’re dealing in fantasy, anything is possible. It’s not necessary to travel to exotic locales for a shoot or for that matter, limit yourself to locales that exist at all! With a little imagination, simple lighting arrangements and some computer postproduction, it’s possible to simulate location shoots, create imagined locations or take a standard nude shot and make it into an exotic portrait.
One of the benefits of creating images in this manner is that it frees the photographer up from needing a model to be in the right place at the right time. Working with preexisting nature or location shots, it’s possible to photograph a model in the comfort of a studio and then combine the images by compositing. Kirby presents dozens of examples where he employed this method to great success.
While creating fantastical and striking backgrounds are a big part of Kirby’s work, thoughtful lighting plans when shooting the models is what makes the images really standout. He experiments with different ways of using his lights, sometimes creating his own DIY lighting units, and shares the details throughout

About the Author:

UK based Rayment Kirby started his photographic career as a photographer in the Royal Air Force when he did his Nation Service in the early 1950s. After that, he worked in a color-processing lab, and then went on to a large London Studio. Here, he assisted photographers in the fields of food, fashion, and advertising. After this, he set up his own London studio and went on to shoot assignments for clients in the fashion, advertising, book publishing and music industry. He writes for the photographic press and take photographs for picture agencies both in UK and abroad. He also built and designed large format cameras. More recently, his interest in the art nude genre has returned and coupled with his work with the computer, it has enabled him to incorporate the fantasy element he enjoys into his pictures.
