Okay for our post today we're going to discuss nude photography and the creative use of fabrics. More specifically we're going to discuss backlit fabrics! That really adds style to a nude photograph.
As you can see in this photograph the model is somewhat backlit as well. Also she is holding a very nice fabric with sheeny quality and it is illuminated with a small blue light. The blue light comes from a studio strobe with a snoot with a blue gel. That really adds an extra bit of spice to the image! Also the model is lit with a semi-narrow light on her upper body. This gives her body wonderful definition and adds quite a bit of drama to the photograph. At My Sensual Gift, we work very hard on being creative! Creativity is the basis for great nude photography and fabrics are a wonderful way to add creativity to nude photography. This also works best with the darker background so the colors are more vibrant. In the fabric is mentioned before, has a very nice sheen on it making it look really nice for this nude photography study!
Backlighting is a beautiful way to outline the body. As you can see here the backlighting puts a nice rim light around her figure highlighting the edges of her body. It also adds a great amount of drama which really makes the photo exciting to look at!
The fabric can really be any kind that you choose. I chose this luminescent blue fabric because it was just so elegant and it matched the look that I wanted to go for. The addition of the blue light behind the fabric really made the sheen of the material pop! Again please give us a call if you would like a shot like this. We at My Sensual Gift love to be creative with nudes!
