Photography Question 
Madison Blackford

how to light nudes? - beginer

Is it possible to take great, or reasonably good pictures, using a simple Panasonic PV- SD4090 digital camera?

I need to illustrate an art term paper, using several nude compositions. Most of them placed indoors.

Do I need to purchase expensive lighting accessories or, are there techniques to simply, utilize the resources available and those of the camera?
I am proficient in the use of Photoshop, Illustrator, etc.

I'm just getting started in the photographic world.

Thank you

Jeff S. Kennedy   With all the expensive and inexpensive light sources available out there in the world still the best is window light. Put your subject next to a large window receiving indirect sunlight and you can't miss. Well unless you have a lot of trafic going by that window. Then you may cause an accident.
