My photography apprentice asked me if I would shoot some Playboy-style images of his girlfriend. Gotta love that! This was my first real attempt at shooting Playboy-style images. Did I get close? Do you think she has a chance in Playboy? Comments welcome.

All the images were shot in my home using two Alien Bees, the SB-15 speedlight off my old Nikon camera and some ambient light from the incandescents in the rooms. Nikon D100, Nikkor 70-200mm f2.8 VR lens.

Nicely done, and a Beautiful model. Looks real close to me though I am no expert on P/b style.

If I were Hef I would not hesitate to publish this young lady.

Looks good to me! [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img] How exactly did you have your lights set up with these?

Nice!

Even if PB doesn't accept them, you should still be very proud of this work.

I know two things after reviewing your post.

First, great shots. I'm certainly not qualified to say whether or not Playboy would ultimately deem them acceptable, but if they showed up in my next issue I would have absolutely no problem with the value that I received.

Second, your assistant is one lucky guy....

Very well done! I especially like #1. I'm sure they were very happy with the results.

Here's what to do:

Send 5-6 images, preferably nude,(without all the type and words on the pics) to sesubmissions@playboy.com along with jpegs of 2 copies of her ID and a short bio on her and you'll very quickly find out if they are interested.

Excellent technique. Love the "plane" lighting -- a signature of most PB shoots from what I undestand.

Just curious, but what is "plane" lighting. That's a term I haven't seen before, and I couldn't find anything specific on a web search.

Thanks,
Matt

It's a term that is used to describe the way you light different "planes" of the scene. It adds more of a 3D look to the image. As an example, lighting up a hallway behind the subject and then lighting up a bookcase a little closer. Not sure it the term is widely used today but my uncle (commercial photographer from the 40-50's) refers to it all the time. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

From Lowel Lighting Glossary: Lighting Planes
Visualize your subject, or the entire scene, as a series of planes at various angles to the lens. Position lights to reveal or conceal those planes effectively.
