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!).

'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.
Oh the pressure....ok I'm in. I do like a challenge...
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
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.

Hmmm ... anyway, check out the Blind Print Exchnage FAQs for more stuff. This will be fun!
I started a new thread in the Fine Art Nude social group to track updates on this print exchange ...
Aw shucks Art, this will foil all us voyeurs!
