Re: First Nude Model Shoot - NSFW

This reminded me of a middle aged male work colleague I had in the late 70's who was a member of a pretty seedy camera club in Glasgow. Once a month they'd all chip together to pay for the services of a nude model. They'd all turn up with their cameras and spend a couple of hours snapping away at the various poses the young lady would get into after their suggestions. He swore that none of them would have a roll of film between them in their cameras as it was too costly bearing in mind they'd paid for the model.

Get well soon Garrie

Re: First Nude Model Shoot - NSFW

We have studio shoots at our club and I reckoned I was doing not too bad.
Then one of our members, who has his own studio, organised a nude shoot.
The best pictures I took of the model were when she was clothed.
You definitely have to get into 'picture' mode.

I've seen some good male nude studies but I'm of the opinion that the female shape looks far better.

Re: First Nude Model Shoot - NSFW

It always interesting when older postings reappear, and its perhaps a bit late for me to comment on the original reason for posting (okay, I go for No.1 for its softening effect whereas the B&W does gives the model a 'harder' feel with the dramatic lighting - so I guess much would depend on the end use).
But the real reason for the reply is that I then had a look at your website and just to say I love the urban exploring images and the way you have given many of the images an almost 'cartoon' (not sure that's the word I mean) like feel that seems very much in the style of the drawings for a moive storyboard. I presume that this is due to HDR editing? But whatever the technique, to me it really suits your images and the beauty of urban decay - sorry not to have come across these earlier.
In the meantime all the best

Regards
Chris
