In Sunday’s post  – link – I revisited a shoot with Cassie Jade from before Christmas.  We did some glamour and boudoir shots before moving to the downstairs studio and changing to art nude.

Art nude is probably my favourite genre of all the types that I cover.  In my view there’s no greater feeling photographically than getting the lighting exactly right and using it to create all of the beautiful shadows that create intrigue, mystery and curiosity, contrasting with properly exposed areas.

When shooting in a studio I like to keep the background simple, so there is absolutely no distraction from the subject of the human form.   For me that means pure black, or occasionally all white.  I think black gives the classic look, whilst white is a bit edgier and lends itself to something other than the classic art nude poses.  For this shoot we went for a black background because Cassie Jade can hit all of those classic poses perfectly.

Something I did move away from on this occasion was converting all of the shots from colour to black and white.  I did change a few of them, but Cassie’s skin colour worked really well without any conversion, and although there is a bit of a loss of detail in her hair where it merges into the background I don’t think that it degrades the image at all.   I’m so convinced that this is the case I’m going to have a few of these shots printed, framed and hung on my walls at home.

I have converted the final shot in this set.   I think it shows the differences in contrast well, and deepens the levels of intrigue.   For me this is a classic art nude shot, produced by a top class model, an expert in this style.   Cassie Jade knows how to use those lights to the maximum, and helped me to get the shots I was looking for.  I hope you’ve enjoyed seeing them as much I did taking them!
