Warning : Lets start this tutorial with a warning. This post is about Nude Photography and does cover a topic that some may find offensive. At first I thought she was joking but she was quite serious. She wanted someone that she could trust and someone who she thought could take a decent shot.
Nude photography is a genre most photographers dabble in every now and again. I've often thought of nude photography as a natural extension of portraiture; if you're going to spend so much time on trying to capture the 'essence' of who somebody is, in some cases shedding any barriers between the model and the camera such as clothes is the next logical step. One thing that can be a challenge, is to translate portraiture techniques into nudes.
When it comes to studying nude photography , there definitely seems to be a preference for shooting in black and white over colour. It is perhaps because the former allows the artists to better engage with the great contrasts and beauty of the human body. From giants of 20th century art right through to very modern photographers, the artists curated here all bring something exciting to the medium.
