Images of the nude human form are among the oldest art forms--from simple drawings, to grand statuary, to classic painting and contemporary photography, artists' fascination with the human body has endured throughout time and across every form of creative expression. Within the pages of this book, accomplished fine-art nude photographer Jennifer Emery begins by presenting the key elements of lighting and posing the human body to best flatter the subject and express the desired design. With these fundamentals in place, she expands and elevates the practice of photographing nudes to develop more conceptual, fine-art looks that go beyond merely representing the subject and strive to communicate more complex ideas and aesthetics. As she demonstrates, fine-art nude photography can go far beyond a mere black backdrop and some interesting lighting. Full of color, motion, and style, Emery's images spark intrigue, admiration, passion, and excitement!
