Erotic shoots, like nude photography, require a patience and a sense of fun. Models are performing in an intimate way that is usually private for most people. I find it very important to get to know the model as much as possible and discover their sense of humor and especially how their imaginations work. If I can find that entry key to their imagination, the shoot is almost always a breeze. There are usually multiple lighting changes. And like sports photography, things work best if I’m shooting fast and working with the idea of capturing moments. (So I usually use a fast lens.) These can be very fun shoots.
