What are the timescales for this exchange? I've not shot a nude before. How nude is nude if you know what I mean?

Without clothes :D

I'd say no one is going to be able to tell from a closeup if someone is totally naked or not unless the clothes are in shot but that depends on the composition and all that. If you have something in mind and can accomplish it, good on you :) But if you mean underwear or something, I'm not sure where to draw the line. I'll shut up now. :confused:

Nude is naked, no clothes, bared all, skin only, birthday suit, streaker attire, full monty. You may use props but I think everyone participating expects the print to have images of body parts not normally seen at 'family events'. Unless you're a nudist. Or a blasphemer, heathen, etc...

Let's try to get the print made and sent before November 30 so that it shows up for Christmas! Just to test the GAWDS even more.

Even the bits outside the edge of the frame :o

What?!! She can't wear 6" stripper heels and be nude?

I'd say the stripper heels qualify, so long as A: she can remain upright while wearing them, and B: they're worn on the feet, not to hide the naughty bits. Incidentally, I think within the profession, anything shorter than a 6" stiletto is considered a flat.

She? Oh, wait. This doesn't have to be a self-portrait after all, does it?

I don't have any 6" heels so I suppose that excludes the self portrait option

I don't own 6inch heels, I own 4inch high platform sandles...

Oh and don't forget, you can use "discretionary limbs" as my friend puts it ;) Or at least I'm keeping that in mind!

Ok, I didn't phrase my question very well ;-) I've not shot any nudes before so it would be a learning curve for me. A lot of Ian Leake's images (which I admire) are more about the naked form and don't include the "naughty" bits as it were. That's where the how nude is nude question was coming from. Does that make it any clearer?

Firstly thanks, and secondly sorry for not taking your question seriously (I blame Art - he's a bad influence - bad Art!).

In my opinion (which is just another opinion of course), nudes are just that - nude. Partially clothed models are not nude - they're partially clothed. I never work with partially clothed models, so even when I make a photo of someone's feet or their hand it's a nude. (Just to be a bit pedantic: none of my models are naked - they are nude. 'Naked' has a subtly different meaning to 'nude'.)

And, again just an opinion, there are no rules regarding what is or is not shown - faces, 'naughty' bits, eye contact, and scars are all up for grabs. Same goes for the model's sex. It's all down to what you and the model are happy with.

Hope this helps.

P.S. If you're looking for a model let me know and I'll be more than happy to recommend some.

Thanks Ian. Ok I'm in, if the following is acceptable. Image will more than probably not contain any "naughty bits" but will be a nude. I will attempt to use my 7x17 and create a contact lith print for this exchange. If that suits please can I join in. Drew

Drew-

I was being silly when I mentioned "naughty bits". Some people draw the line for them at the waistline, others, at the neck. For the purpose of my satire, I was drawing the line at the neck.

Splendid - I look forward to seeing what you make Drew.
