    I think that the female body is a really beautiful part of nature

    My take on it is in that sentence above. Web sites like this are dominated by men and it is in our nature to enjoy looking at pictures of naked women. We are what we are.

    Don't know about Penthouse, and haven't seen a Playboy in 20 years. What I've seen in the old Playboys isn't much different than some of the nudes here.

    A nude is a nude, what else can you call it?

    OK Mike, so your first 2 versions have water for processing your films and prints, but I'm a bit confused by the third option.

    The third option is for those who've been deprived far too long.

    I spent some time in north eastern Germany last summer. It is not uncommon to go swimming on public beaches there, without any clothes. Public saunas are naturally mixed. They call it "Freie Körperkultur", or FKK.

    I am a naturist, and I have photographed naturists here in Australia and New Zealand for more than 20 years at resorts, beaches, camping, driving, skydiving and bungee jumping (and before you ask, the last two are a little uncomfortable done nude). My forthcoming project over the Christmas-New Year break is to photograph nudes (both genders) in natural rainforest settings using my Pinhole camera, movement and multi-exposure. And the great thing about all this is the "models" (plucked at random) are (un)dressed the same as me, so they are completely at ease — even those that haven't appeared before my camera.

    If you want to be successful with nudists (naturists), you need to get down to their level — that means strip and join them.

    Playboy and Penthouse are both absolute rubbish — always have been, always will be. That porn is wowserish, exploitative and degrading, additional to being heavily airbrushed. I prefer to photograph and interact with the real thing without pretention or showy dollying-up courtesy that bloody Photoshop tripe.
