    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.

    OK people time's up to sign up. So here are the pairings. The first person named is the sender and the second person is the recipient of the sender's print.

    Thomas Bertilsson --> keeds
    gr82bart --> Thomas Bertilsson
    smieglitz --> gr82bart
    TheFlyingCamera --> smeiglitz
    Allen Friday --> TheFlyingCamera
    dpurdy --> Allen Friday
    Ian Leake --> dpurdy
    Akki14 --> Ian Leake
    Vaughn --> Akki14
    dpurdy --> Vaughn

    Instruction to all recipients: Please send a Private Message (PM) to your respective sender with your real name and mailing address.

    For those of you that are sending prints between countries, do NOT state your photograph is more than $10USD or equivalent maximum, otherwise it may stay in customs or the recipients may be hit with duty. Make sure you state that it is a GIFT and has NO COMMERCIAL VALUE.

    And whatever you do, do NOT write that it is a nude photograph or anything like that. Just say it's a photograph.

    Hmmm ... anyway, check out the Blind Print Exchnage FAQs for more stuff. This will be fun!
