A Beginners Guide To Nude Photography

Nude photography has been a genre explored for years by some of the world’s best photographers and even though it is sensitive in nature, it often yields some amazing images. Nude photography is sensitive in nature for many reasons and a few these reasons are. There is a thin line between artistic nude photography and porn which can be a bit disturbing to some viewers. This is all open to interpretation of the viewer of course but some individuals are not as open-minded as others. As a result of this, you find viewers who may see the artistic intention through your image and those who may just see a photograph of a slightly nude or completely nude person. In this article, we will be exploring how you go about executing a successful nude photography session as well as few things to do and a few things not to do. Always be mindful of the kind of shoot you’re doing and treat it as such.

1. Connect With Your Model

It is important that you and your model are on the same page. This helps to eliminate any uncertainty as it regards to the intention and idea of the shoot. Take some time out to make them comfortable and get an idea of their personality as you would with any other model. I often find when this is done, time goes by much faster than you think and the session becomes almost effortless. Remember at the end of the day this individual is exposing them-self to you willingly and it only helps both parties once a mutual level of respect and consideration is shown. Run through the poses you have in mind and if possible show a few ideas to the model knows how to maneuver their body throughout the session.
