Physique Lighting Tricks

I have a client who is in great shape, but always gets discouraged because he compares himself to professional photos he sees in the fitness and bodybuilding mags.

I don’t think you should compare yourself to anyone anyway, but I definitely don’t think you should compare yourself to professional fitness photos.  I went on to explain to my client how we use different tricks to make the body look more ripped in photos, one of those like 8 different tricks being physique-style lighting.  I filmed a little demonstration showing just how a switch in the angle of light can make a big visual difference in how the body appears.

Here’s the link to the YouTube video: Nate with his shirt off in different lighting!

    Its funny, I never usually take my body fat, because everything I do is about looking a certain way for photos, etc., so I go by how I look, mirror etc. However, I shot another video taking my body fat percentage = 5.4% (which just want to let you know, those machines aren’t very accurate). My lesson = don’t get caught up in obsessing over #’s, body fat %. If you can’t see a difference you aren’t making a difference.
