Brigman's photographs frequently focused on the female nude, dramatically situated in natural landscapes or trees. Many of her photos were taken in the Sierra Nevada Mountains in carefully selected locations and featuring elaborately staged poses. Brigman often featured herself as the subject of her images. After shooting the photographs, she would extensively touch up the negatives with paints, pencil, or superimposition.

Brigman died on 8 February 1950 at her sister's home in El Monte, California. A year before her death, she published a book of her poems and photographs titled Songs of a Pagan.

    If you fail to write your resume as you lack the specific writing skills, you should refer to the resume sites and ask the professional help from them. It is better to get help from the specialist than to write the poor resume on your own.
