These images were produced inside a lighting studio, using electronic flash or in a very few cases, tungsten lighting. I prefer studio flash to tungsten as it projects far more light with far less heat. There are two cardinal rules for studio photography: you always need more (or less) light than you have and there is never enough space to work in. Neither is solvable without great expense.p>For the most part, I use the studio as a practice ground; in the winter, when I cannot work with the nude outdoors, it serves as a place to exercise my eyes and mind. No matter how successful my studio work might be, I often find it pales in comparison to my outdoor nudes. About the only subject that I prefer to work with in the studio are my images of lovers ; there is a simplicity and elegance which is present in the studio which helps focus the attention of the viewer on the couple alone.
