After shooting with studio flashes, speedlights and available natural light, I decided to try a new lighting-gear-field: shooting with LEDs. ‘Portrait Nudes’ as a SWP-style concept, a genuine woman in front of the lens, and some spontaneous ideas on the set: That is all it takes to create alluring pieces of work for your aspiring portfolio. Shot with inexpensive lighting gear.

My project “Clothed With Darkness” refers to a particular lighting approach that I am using across several shoots in order to tie a body of work together. I discuss how the images are going to be lit, explain my post processing approach that goes hand in hand with the lighting and in conclusion, I will provide you with crucial takeaways.
“Abstractism” offers a lot: An experimental exploration, conceptual work, artistic output, for fun… – it is totally up to your desire, needs and imagination in which direction you want to lead this concept. A repetitive application by using different pattern-worlds and different subjects will let you accumulate a series that will be an invaluable body of work for your portfolio.
“Shadow Play” fuels your creative mind with a simple concept that offers expressively magnificent art nude photos. It needs a bit of DIY work, 1 speedlight/strobe – et voila. If you stick to the compositional concept of keeping your subject’s anonymity, then you can photograph your partner/wife and nobody will get in hot waters. Discover endless possibilities the low budget way.
“Red Breeze” is a creative artistic glamour concept shot with 2 speedlights. Working with unpredictable forms created by a fabric lace and incalculable posing can be seen as both challenging and exciting on set! The concept does not require a pro model but a playful one. The artistic touch is suitable for potential TFP collaborations.
