There is a book on hollywood portraits, I&#39;m not sure if you have seen it or not, it has the poses and rough layouts for the lighting.&nbsp; Remember, a&nbsp; lot of that look is due to using large format film and expert retouching with lead pencils.

Good luck.

Ah, memories - working in a "loft" in August - with hot lights - "R2" floods - anyone remember those?

It didn&#39;t matter much if the model/s were nude - the photographers earnestly wished that *THEY* were.

I *love* my DynaLites.
