OP your blur job isn’t hiding her identity. I think anyone who knows her would be able to recognize her in a second. Posting here in the sex forum means these images aren’t getting indexed and backed up by search engines but anyone could copy and use them as they please.




No worries, man. We're both fully aware of the potential exposure that photos uploaded to the internet can receive.

The blurred effect is not to prevent people that know her from recognizing her, it's to prevent people who don't know her from easily recognizing her and to prevent facial recognition software from working.

She has been sharing explicit photos online for a long time, since before i met her. There are no doubt hundreds, if not thousands of photos of her circulating or in people's collections.

We know the risks that sharing explicit photos can have and we wouldn't share them if we didn't accept those risks.

I appreciate the friendly warning though. There's a lot of young folks out there snapping risqué selfies for friends who don't realize how widely those pics can circulate and the effect it can have on their personal and future professional lives so it's definitely something worth mentioning.

A little less explicit and more artistic is so much more appealing, in my opinion. There's a shot load of porn out there; good erotica is much more scarce.

Ah, yes... the age old discussion of "erotica" vs. "porn".
Almost as cliche as asking "is it art?" :smile:

Personally I think there's a good balance between explicit and artistic photos... and it's surprisingly hard to achieve, both as a photographer and as a model. This is mostly due to the fact that the nature of the content is only defined through relative interpretation. 

You can take some extremely explicit photos that come out looking very classy and erotic, and you can try taking classy and erotic photos that come out looking totally trashy.  Are they actually classy, or trashy, or erotic, or explicit...?  Who knows... and honestly, who cares.

My feeling is that trying to classify art into categories of degrees of this or that is a bit of a futile exercise. 

Photos involving nakedness will always be contentious.  As with most things that you create, it feels better to create things that you enjoy, that you believe in, that take you to a place within yourself that benefits you as an individual versus creating something that you think will appeal to the masses but which sacrifices your own creative will.

Sharing one's creations can be a lot of fun but the only question in my mind is whether or not people have interest in seeing what i create, not whether i not i should change what i enjoy doing in order to fit a classification that will appeal to a broader audience.

My girl has done a lot of custom photos for people who have paid for specific types of photos and ya, it can be a lot of fun to cater to people's desires sometimes.  As you can probably guess, most of those custom photos that people requested were definitely more explicit than erotic.

I guess porn is one of those things... no matter how much there is, there's never quite enough!  LOL

There's a grey area for sure, and once nudity is involved, that grey area tends to stretch quite a bit. I agree. Still, within the many shades of grey, there are noticeably darker and lighter ones. If the emphasis lies on the subject (and particular, the pinky bits) and moves away from the image as a whole, things start to get less interesting to me. Don't get me wrong - I think pinky bits are fine. But there's a difference between documenting them in a "look at those holes" way and creating a photograph that happens to revolve around certain anatomic parts.

The difference is between snapping some shots and hoping they come out well, and deliberately conceiving of a certain image and then going through the necessary steps to make it. A photograph is made in the mind before the shutter trips resulting in an image that was seen before the model even entered the viewfinder, a snapshot is made by snapping the shutter and seeing what comes out.

I do. I'm fine with both porn and erotic photography, but the latter is just much more worthwhile to spend some time looking at, in my opinion.

Personally, I do agree. Worthwhile not just to spend time looking at  but to spend time creating.
It feels more gratifying to consider the aspects of what it takes to create an interesting photo beyond the goal of something to make dicks hard and fill the heart with lust.

However, i will say that pornography has the unique gift of saying a lot about someone's hidden true nature in the way that normal or erotic photography often does not.
Seeing what type of pornography someone views or creates feels like a window into someone's soul, a part of the soul tied very intimately to one's emotions and free from the learned social behaviour of what's "appropriate".

I think that if you're the type of person that thinks artistically, then regardless of whether you're viewing or creating well-composed erotica, slutty pornography, abstract nudes or sloppy snapshots of some late-night drunken sexual encounter, there is value and depth in all media and it's only personal opinion that creates a hierarchy of worth, which is only important to those who wish to develop a community or camaraderie based on shared values.

My personal preferences are important to me, as yours are important to you.
I think it's great getting comments about the composition or lighting in a photo but i also equally appreciate someone admiring the 'pink bits' and asking to see more.

I like that you prefer erotica, and i like that a previous poster wants to see my girlfriend put a shroom in her pussy and then eat it... It really rounds out the experience of sharing personal photos of the woman i love and lust for! :grin:

Value and a hierarchy of value is indeed largely subjective, I agree. I don't agree that the only relevance of a hierarchy of value lies in a community or camaraderie; for me personally, it isn't the case. My preference for more artistic erotica is firstly because the enjoyment I get from seeing such images is a bit more profound and enduring than seeing porn, which is a very fleeting pleasure indeed. More importantly, erotica as opposed to porn is to me more inspiring - it helps me to identify approaches that I like to apply in my own photography as well. Porn rarely, if ever, does that for me.

That's cool.  Inspiration is a beautiful thing, regardless of where or how you come by it. :thumbup:

Thanks dude.
You can't go wrong when you put a pretty girl in a pretty outdoor scene.
Natural light is a photographers best friend! :smirk:

Absolutely! And natural light does have its benefits. But indoor, I work with strobes a lot as they allow for lighting setups that just don't work with available light. A friend of mine used to work in the movie industry and he's currently amassing a variety of cinema lights; we're planning to do a shoot with them when the weather cools down (to prevent my girlfriend from melting lol). It'll be non-nude though.

Nice!
I wish i could say i was well versed with artificial lighting but i often struggle with getting the right colour balance and keeping the shadows under control.
I think that artificial lights can do amazing things but so far i tend to only use them in addition to natural lighting.
It's something i definitely want to get more experience and proficient at though because i see so many amazing photos that use artificial and coloured lighting for amazing effects.

It takes a little practice (well, a lot really :wink:) but it is quite rewarding. I mostly work on film (so analog) which makes it a bit more unpredictable, but you learn to guesstimate what the balance will be for a given setup. Shadows can indeed be harsh, but you can often use them to your advantage. And otherwise a fill light can be used to lift them up and give them necessary detail. Working with continuous "hot" lights is more straightforward, but you need quite a lot of light if you want to keep iso and noise low. The friend I spoke of lights a portrait scene with several kilowatts of light - more than enough to warm up a cold winter's day! I personally use strobes as they are less power hungry, don't generate as much heat and are ubiquitous. I generally use two studio strobes, but I should really add one more because I often run into the issue of not having a dedicated hairlight or kicker.

Can I ask why you still use film? It’s so much more expensive. I’m honestly surprised there are still suppliers.

15 years ago we used to occasionally do film work and the only place left in DC that would still had a fully stocked lab was National Geographic.

Because I like how it's a more involved process. I enjoy making prints, but inkjet just doesn't do it for me. I've seen gorgeous inkjets, so it's not necessarily a quality issue. But for me, nothing compares to the variety of surfaces, tones and materials that I can use in a wet darkroom. A sepia-selenium toned baryta print or a gold-toned salt print is just somehow more special to me. Indeed, when it comes to alternative processes like salt prints, cyanotypes, Van Dykes, carbon transfers, albumen prints - there's simply no digital equivalent to them. They're not better or worse than inkjet - they're just entirely different. Likewise for RA4 color c-prints.
Also, there's the way negative film handles highlights; I like the graceful degradation as opposed to the hard clipping of digital sensors.

I've actually noticed a big resurgence of film photography happening in my area.  I'm not sure if that's just part of the whole "analog revolution" that's sort of been happening over the past few years, with LP's, tape cassettes and flip phones gaining popularity.

I was very late moving from film to digital, having to special order film because the majority of stores weren't carrying it anymore.  I don't plan on going back to film any time soon but i have a friend who has his own little darkroom and he's been shooting almost exclusively with film for the past year and a half with some amazing results that would likely be very difficult, if not impossible to attain with digital photography.

Film photography (and related techniques such as wet plate collodion and alternative process printing) have enjoyed a resurgence worldwide (at least in the Western world and Asia) over the past 5-8 years or so. The question if it is a hype or a more sustainable resurgence. I think currently we are at the peak of photographic possibilities, with still decent access to 'analog' materials (although some have definitively disappeared, such as Cibachrome and several color film stocks) as well as excellent digital equipment and software. It is still unclear how and if companies like Kodak/Alaris, Ilford and Fuji will manage to make a long-term business model based on the film/paper market as it is and how it is likely to develop. Having said that, at least the hipsters with the beards are having a nice time and so are the old farts who never really embraced digital, and anyone in-between - and that's great.

As to the question of certain results are achievable only with film: I'm skeptical beyond the printing processes that I mentioned. In terms of image acquisition/capture, there currently is no reason to believe that film has any significant advantage in any way. Effectively, it can all be done with digital cameras and photoshop, and usually a whole lot better (in terms of image quality) and especially faster at that. I think film photographers such as myself would do good not to fool ourselves and think the process is superior in any objective way to digital. That horse has been beaten to a pulp many times over and despite the conclusion that digital is nearly always superior, 'analog' remains attractive to some. I believe it's in the hands-on aspect; the fact that it is tangible. This inherent characteristic gives much satisfaction and I can very well imagine it is the main reason why amateur analog photographers such as myself stick with it.

Yep, no one wants to get into a discussion about the value of one form of photography over another, or the value in general of analog vs digital.
I have very little doubt that a gifted photographer could utilize either analog, digital or a combination of the two, to create an extremely unique and personalized style that may very well be easy to imitate but nearly impossible to duplicate.

I beg to differ; I think you'll find that actually, people do want to do so, as can be seen above.
