I'm trying to find a place to do a naughty librarian shoot, no nudity or anything, but sexy... I would love a real library but I'm sure getting in them is impossible without donating a new wing to the library, ha. Anyone ever done something like this and have any recommendations?

If you don't have that green, have you thought of other Green? Yes the green screen of course.

hawk911: Would love to, but I want my strobes with me... would give me away. ;)

DisrupTer911: That's probably the way to go. Thanks.

I have heard some college library stories. 1 up here in Alaska is 4 or 5 floors tall. Not very many visitors at night. A couple I know had over 30 minutes of fooling around with no one around.

Configure your garage for Library Photo.
That's why they call it Garage Glamour.

depending on the library, and your strobes, you could do a 1-light setup.

I hear ya, but if you fold up the softbox, put the rods into a case to carry the lightstand, and out the strobe in a backpack, you're all good :)

Well, aside from asking for permission or having an "inside job"... I think it could be done in large libraries at colleges.

My school had a 7 floor library. It wasn't very big but the higher up you got, the lesser people you saw. Also less likely to see someone up there in the early mornings, school breaks, and non-peak study hours.

Rarely hurts to ask, and you don't have to tell the whole truth.

Pick a library that you're interested in, go through and do a basic scout walk through with a sketch pad to get a rough idea. Possibly do some basic mockup shots with stand in props.

Play it off as planning a fairly conservative photo shoot with a focus on artistic value. Sell this plan to someone at the library, focus on that plan while shooting. Work with them to find a time when you will be the least disruptive, and if they agree to help you out with an arts project then you just happen to sneak in the more 'naughty' shots when no one is paying too close of attention. You could easily kill two birds with one stone by no only getting the shots you are looking for, but also providing photos to your local library for their own use. (Hopefully the two sets don't share much in common for poses, but I think the "naughty librarian" concept is better sold visually by someone who in the same afternoon could pose for photos to be used on the cover of a flyer. After all the whole image is about going from perfect/nice/proper to naughty.)

^ Why to go through this much trouble.
Just fill up a form a from at employment, get that late hours shift that no one wants.
After closure of lib, take whatever picture you want.
Get your first paycheck and quit!
