i I am wanting to shoot a model in a milk bath as i've seen many times only use my own ideas. My question is what is the best way to get a white milky look in my 90 gallon tub?

This may seem silly, but what about milk?

From what I hear, it does a pretty good job of looking milky.

My understanding is that Milk would be an sure way to a yeast infection for the girl. Milk isn't meant to be bathed in & it would cost a god awful amount of money to fill a tub.

Try water & White bath soaps will make it white water.
Or dry milk power mixed with water.

Use powdered milk, much cheaper...


20D, 10D, Fuji S-20, Mamiya C220 medium format, Sekonic L-508 meter, 2 alien bee 800's, AB remotes, Sigma 500 HS flash, 70-200 F2.8 L, Sigma 24-70 F2.8 EX DG, lots of glass, lots of stuff,8-)

Acrylic water based artist paint in the tube that used Zinc Oxide for the white pigment. It dissolves in warm water and has enough opacity to mimic milk nicely with far less cost. It's safe for the skin, just like the Zinc Oxide based sunscreens sold as allergy safe.

I'd also go with paint of some sort, using milk seems unsanitary and smelly


40D, 5D3, a bunch of lenses and other things :cool:

or you can use a milk substitute.. that is what we do and never have any problems.. We shoot at least one model a month in something like that. I have never tryed real milk, but sometime it has a bit of blue in it and it is hard to travel with.

I shoot this a few months ago using that

just turned on the water.. medium temp -- added the power.. and for the most part that was it. I have a ton of different models we have shoot in stuff just like that

Kayden - same thing - different location - different tub

Yea.. she actually came over to the house with some girlfriends who want to do shoots and I showed her this thread. She had no problems with type of milk we used, it didn't smell or anything. She reminded me that it did get formy at first, but we just left it alone for like 15 minutes while I set up the lights.

I am surprise no one suggested plain water then do some post processing magic. I bet someone has done it before. Just not sure how labor intensive it would be to do.

I have always tried to get it as close to perfect in camera.. then tweak only what is need in photoshop.. some people are different some people would rather work in photoshop all the time.

I just shoot a model in powered milk with 3 different lighting sets up ( direct light - grid, softbox, and bounce) .. pm if you want me to email you some samples.

I'm assuming the reason that any time you can do something *before* post-processing, it's going to save you a lot of time, and doesn't have the chance of looking fake.

I've had a few "Crap, why didn't I fix that before shooting" moments, and I'm sure everyone else has had them, too. Once you see them ahead of time, you can use your PP time more productively.

The same is true for adding effects. You also don't have to edit them on every photo separately. Saves time if you take more than 1 photo in the same manner.
