Computer graphics have opened up vast new visual worlds, and among those who can benefit most are photographers who specialize in depicting the nude human form. The computer is creating a new art form, as revolutionary as the photograph was 160 years ago. Explore all the new methods for changing colors and lighting, adding backgrounds and foregrounds, bringing abstract design into your compositions, and much more. Filled with stunning nude photography that makes imaginative uses of the new technology, this intriguing handbook and guide explains how each picture was achieved, taking you step by step from studio setting and darkroom into the amazing new world of digital manipulation. Learn to replicate traditional darkroom techniques such as burning and dodging, sepia toning, bas-relief, solarization, posterization, litho masking, and others—this time without developing film or paper, and without spending money on failed experiments. Along with seeing the full range of what the latest photo programs and scanners can do, you get an eye-opening tour of how the traditional basics of nude photography are changing, and how you can make the most of them. 160 pages, 8 1/2 X 11.
