LEARN HOW TO CREATE BEAUTIFUL & ARTISTIC IMPLIED NUDE PORTRAITS
Matt Granger – Implied Nude Portraiture
One of the hardest aspects of portraiture is knowing what poses look nice, and this is especially challenging with Implied Nude Portraiture, as you need to carefully position everything to ensure the final image remains ‘implied’.
Throughout the series you will learn over 50 different poses – including tips on how to get into the pose, make adjustments and guide your model.
HOW TO ‘REVEAL AND CONCEAL’
Learning which elements to ‘Reveal and Conceal’ and your options to do so, is fundamental for crafting great Implied Nude Portraiture. Giving the illusion of nudity, without including nipples or genitals in the final image can be difficult at first.
We walk you through all of the options including posing, lighting, camera angle, obscuring accessories and more.
SURPRISINGLY EASY POSES
Some poses yield beautiful results and give the illusion of nudity whilst allowing the model to be completely clothed. Both images to the left demonstrate this.
In photo 1, Steph was wearing a strapless bra and panties, and in photo 2 she was wearing a complete 1 piece bodysuit.
Knowing the requirements of each pose before you shoot takes out the potentially awkward trial and error, and allows you to confidently direct your model.
Shooting with men presents its own challenges, especially those without experience as a model.
We shoot with a non model, for his first time posing nude, and talk you through the different challenges and options that it presents. We show several poses that work well for solo men, that are not too challenging for beginners, and show tips on how to effectively keep his ‘bits’ out of the final images.
We also have a debrief after the shoot where he shares his experience and insights from the other side of the camera.
DIRECTING THE MODEL
It takes confidence, trust and professionalism to create artistic Implied Nude portraits. Knowing the result you are aiming for, the lighting options and the nuances of the pose will give you the confidence to direct the model and develop a trusting relationship.
Throughout the series I show you what to do, as well as what to avoid, to direct your model and create a comfortable vibe on set.
Seeing Steph and I go through the process to create each image, will give you a fast track to creating your own stunning images.
