Has this happen to you? You spend so much time trying to get your lighting correct that the model goes to sleep. Maybe you didn’t plan for the shoot and during a background change, you forgot she was waiting. And waiting. And waiting. By keeping things as simple as possible, you can achieve the artistic nude photography you desire.

I’m developing a ebook to help with. Stay tuned.

Hi all.

Thanks for all the question sent to ask Figureshooter in 2009. I have received many more and will be posting answers to them starting very soon in January.

I have several new shoots that I’m in the mist of completing along with new sessions coming up before the holidays. A few Q & A’s sent are:

How does one stay stimulated since it’s so hard to find talent?

How do you stay creative if you only have one model willing to pose?

How to deal with boredom and shooter’s block?

As you can see, there are a range of questions covering many subjects. Since there are really no one size fits all answers, each question will have to be thought out and maybe answered in multiple articles.

Either way, I’ll do my best to get each question answered.

So join the upcoming @Figureshooter newsletter to stay informed on all the new stuff coming.

Thanks for viewing and getting a friend to view the site (over 1000 and growing!).

ask Figureshooter is a Q and A section mainly about nude photography.

Question? “How do I create a body of work that can be used to showcase my photographic abilities and use for gallery shows?”

(aF) I have several long term series that I am currently working on. Some thought processes I used to find ones that would motivate me are as followed:

(a) Keep it simple. Most series / themes revolve around objects, people or things that can be accessed without great effort or major cost.

(b) Research and analyze your theme to determine if the interest could be globally, nationally or just limited to you;

(c) Locate and gather the things needed to do a shoot. Go ahead and do it;

(d) Review the images created to see if it’s what you were seeking. Get a second opinion if possible;

(e) Revise, rethink and remove any unneeded aspect of the process that slows down you doing shoots;

(f) Decide on a day and time you will do each session, write it down on a calendar and follow through.

Remember, you should find a theme / subject that you are interested in or better, extremely curious about.

p2_04sask Figureshooter is a Q and A section mainly about nude photography.

Question? “How do I find models?”

(aF) There are steps you can take to find local talent in your area. But you must remember that thee is no one solution fits all type of answer. For starters, you should:

(a) develop a record keeping system that will enable you to analyze the information collected;

(b) analyze your local market;

(c) locate which (if any) photographers are shooting in the style you seek;

(d) search for local semi-pro labs that may print nudes for models and photographers;

(e) seek local lingerie stores (not the big ones in the malls) which may have clients seeking to do a lingerie shoot;

(f) use the internet modeling sites to seek models in your local area.

These steps should get you started. If there is more interest, I will create an indepth article with more ideas and that will better explain the above steps. -mackie-
