Nude photography is a form of photography with the naked human body as subject. Nude photography is different from erotic photography, in which sexual suggestion plays a role. Nude photography is also different from glamour photography, in which the emphasis is more on the model and his or her appearance.
In nude photography, the emphasis is often more on the human form than on the person. Nude photography can vary from a snapshot to a shot with carefully chosen poses and ligting. Personally I like to reflect the models character in the photo and don't give to much posing instructions. The lighting can be (extreme) studio light, fill in flash or just natural light. A well-known form of nude photography is figure study, in which often no face can be seen at all, but in which the body is photographed as a 'landscape'.Image: Tindra at a workshop at Piar-fotografie with studio lighting
