List and photographic thoughts by PhotographerNL
Fine Art Nude is a wonderful and creative photographic genre, but it is also very challenging. Finding a model and a good location is only the beginning. The beauty and mood of this pictures doesn't portray what goes on behind the scene.
The beginner has to grow and gain experience. It is not a style you excel in from one day to another. Techniques and skills first have to be fully mastered and you have to learn how to photograph people. Fine Art Nude means that models expose themselves revealing their bodies in an intimate way and yet still have to be aesthetically perfect and subtle. Plan carefully your set-up so that you look professional and prepared which will put your model at ease. Be confident in your skills. If not, the results of your shoot might be disappointing to both, you and your model. It is essential that you are friendly and sure of your abilities during a photo session. Be professional!
Do everything you can to make the model comfortable.
Act professionally, don't stare at your model.
