Hi everybody,

I'm planning to photograph 'skin' at the coming weekend. Not the whole body, only parts. I think of goose-skin, water on skin, warm colours, glossy bodymilk and such things. I want to show the nature of skin. Does anybody have some good tips and tricks? Anything I need to keep in mind?

Thanks in advance.
Bettina

I suppose the term 'goose-skin' translates from the German 'Gänsehaut', 'goose bumps' or 'goose-bumped skin'?

You're right. Thanks for the adjusting.

I would suggest climate control. Fans to raise the "goose Bumbs" heat to relax the skin. Skin was designed to protect use from the elements. Not That I am expereinced myself with skin photography. It would seem to me though that the elements should have the greatest effects on it...
