I reckon this is great advice. So was the advice earlier in this thread to photograph different body types.

It is apparently very easy to fall into the trap of thinking that a photograph of an attractive person naked is a good photograph. In my observation, the vast bulk of amateur nudes are really boring photos of pretty people. So, if you take the pretty person out of the equation, it becomes easier to judge whether you are producing good work or simply churning out bland soft-porn.
