Nude photography is always an interesting endeavor. More often these days, the model is completely at ease and just tosses their clothes aside and does whatever you ask. Sometimes though, there are some models who are very new to this and are visibly nervous. I work to make them as at ease as possible, and try to find things that make them laugh. The nude shoots that I most enjoy are when we set up a brief story-line: an idea which has a beginning, a middle and an end. Then we surf through the idea. Most models really enjoy this kind of shoot. I try to have as few lighting changes as possible, and set-ups are pre-set to allow for the fastest adjustments possible. I’ve been very fortunate with the variety of nude models that I have photographed.
