We join Mark Cleghorn on a live photo shoot demonstrating how to capture two head turning boudoir bum shots.  

Mark begins the session by first explaining his approach for lighting in a small space, covering his choices of light modifiers and metering the light to get perfect exposure from the get go. For the first boudoir bum shot Mark teaches you how to use light to sculpture the body and create a natural fullness to the bottom. Then for the second bum shot Mark demonstrates how to create a fun but sexy looking implied nude image. With the right props and placement Mark shows you how to sell the implied nude.
