Compressed Nude With an Outstretched Arm

Compressed Nude With an Outstretched Arm

This compressed pose is one of my favorites. It allows smooth areas as well as some wrinkled areas and it is not dependent on the model’s body type.

One light was used, it was placed to the left of the frame and above the model. The light was placed so the model would illuminated from one side.

Kneeling Nude

Kneeling Nude

This is from the same shoot as yesterday’s post. Which do you like better.

Two lights were used, one was placed on the left of the frame and one on the right of the frame both about even with the model. This was done to illuminate the model’s sides and leave the areas facing the camera considerably  darker.

This is a digital image processed in Lightroom. Exposure and brightness were adjusted well as a moderate amount of cropping. The image was converted to monochrome via The Lightroom Black & White sliders.

Red Rock Outcrop

Red Rock Outcrop

This image was captured while on a photo excursion to Moab, UT where are two fantastic National Parks (Arches and Canyonlands). Almost anywhere you point a camera you get a great shot. The only hiccup is there is almost never a cloud in the sky.

This was shot on Ektachrome E100g  slide film. It was scanned into Lightroom where it was rendered to monochrome via Lightroom’s Black & White sliders.  The contrast and exposure were adjusted and the image was cropped slightly.
