Can anyone define the technical aspects of each style of shooting such as the type of lighting setups that are used for each one? I appreciate that setups will be different for each shoot, but I assume that there must be a common theme/pattern for it to be called a style.
There is a lot more that goes into a Playboy or Maxum style photo than just
a naked body or implied nudity and bikinis. If it were that easy, anyone
could do it. There are lighting techniques and attention to details when it
comes to the backgrounds and any photo props that might be in the
picture. "Photomart" on this site does very well with his versions on some
of these styles.
