My Nude Year: Day 256 of 365

Tonight is the end of our low-key exploration for a little while. We had several concepts we wanted to try and today’s image marks the end of the journey. We really enjoyed shooting the small series and feel that several of the photos are really strong however it does at a lot more setup than our other photos do. It doesn’t seem like much to set up a backdrop stand and throw a couple of black drops around but it really adds about 20 or 25 minutes to our shoot. One thing is for sure I really enjoy having the ability to control the light spill much easier with the drops in place. The black cloth just eats the light and it makes of a very quick edit in postproduction. I’m not sure what we will shoot tomorrow just yet.

Until then,
