I have to admit that I could not decide on number twenty so here is just a small selection of the rest

nudes a different point of view

Millions of photos are taken from about five feet eight inches (1.75 m) above the ground because that’s the average persons eye line. Whether photographing fine art nudes, boudoir or glamour nudes it pays to look for a different point of view.

16. Emily

Emily was a talented nude figure model. She appeared on several Silvermoon book covers and in the Scrapyard Girls calendars. She always showed up at my studio in jeans and trainers so I included them in her portraits.

Two Sisters Nude Portrait. Reservoir Dogs was a very popular film at the time this was shot. The girls came up with the idea, sourced the props and styled their hair. All I had to do was light it, pose it and photograph it.

12. Fiona

Twenty nude portraits of women that reflect their personality and lifestyle. Many of the images have been pulled from my archives and have been re-edited. When I did several shoots with the subject they have been grouped into a set . A new post featuring a different sitter will appear each week

There is something intrinsically surreal about masked nudes. Everything is  displayed but we are deprived of the one thing that enables us to identify an individual human.

Creative black and white nude

The nude female form elicits a number of, sometimes conflicting, potential responses from the viewer of an artwork. It can be seen as the depiction of a human being as a sex object, an anonymous manifestation of beauty or the nudity can be used to foreground aspects or themes within the picture. The most common criticism levelled at photography is that it simply imitates another art form.
