Photographing the Female Form With Digital Infrared

With a nuanced approach to this classic style of artistic expression, Laurie Klein elevates the female nude to ethereal levels through the use of digital infrared (IR) photography. Using IR-modified cameras, she designs scenes of her models in evocative natural settings that transform them into fairies, nymphs, and goddesses. In this book, she explores the creation of sixty of her most evocative images, revealing the artistic concepts underlying the scene selection, the choice of model, and the pose. For each of the featured portraits, supporting images show simple variations—other ideas Klein explored during the same session—and offer unique insight into the evolving process of photographic creation. While specific techniques offer insight into the challenges of digital IR imaging, photographers working in any medium will find valuable insights to enhance their approach to fine-art nude photography.
