Light Modifiers in Nude Photography

For creating moods in photography, light is not the most important thing, as you might think. In Dan Hostettlers opinion, we do not design with light, but with shadow.

In this tutorial he presents some of the light modifiers you already know from the film "Little Kit of Light" and illustrates the shadows and looks that can be created with them. Those looks will be refined in the forthcoming tutorials with Dan.

Fashion and Fairytales

Claire Rosen is a commercial and fashion photographer. This video highlights her recent series of fantastic self-portraits inspired by fairy tales.

The series started when a model was late to a shooting. Claire took self-portraits while she was waiting and saw their potential. She implements ideas with scribbles, moodboards and by searching for locations.

Her fantastic series found its way into commercial works, hence they parallel each other in some way.

Interview with Dan Hostettler

Dan Hostettler shares his experience as a commercial nude photographer.

He is one of few experts who can make a living off his job. But nude photography is both a dream job and serious business. One has to develop techniques and practice human interaction to stay on top. To find a niche and specialize in it is a must.

There would be no business without the web. Dan runs a blog on wich he offers free tutorials and making-of-content to bind his customers.

Photography Can Make an Impact

President of the Magnum Photo Agency, photographer Stuart Franklin has travelled to more than 120 different countries photographing impelling news, political, culture, and environmental stories. Franklin’s work has been published in the most distinguished newspapers and magazines of our time such as National Geographic Magazine and TIME Magazine. His seventh and latest book, “FOOTPRINT our landscape in flux” reflects the natural features of different regions, exploring unique landscapes and the space it occupies in man's world.

While working at Sygma (1980–85, today called Corbis) Franklin absorbed the skills of news photography, and also followed legendary photographer Henri Cartier-Bresson’s approach to photography; as he puts it, ‘curious, gentle, surreal with beautiful compositions.’ This experience had a major impact on Franklin and literally influenced everything he photographed.

With a deep theoretical understanding of the issues and subjects he photographs, Franklin eloquently composes the visible features of an area of land, including physical elements such as landforms, living elements of flora and fauna, abstract elements such as lighting and weather conditions, and human elements amidst their built environment; a keen medley of diversity harmonizing together.

In this film, he talks about his work and the acclaimed photographers who have inspired and influenced him most.
