How to Photograph a Nude

First, of course, you need the appropriate subject matter.


Notice the scale. She makes the couch look like a prop in The Incredible Shrinking Woman. Seriously, I’d be surprised if this tiny little thing is even five feet tall.

Then you need to compose the photograph and get the light and pose just right. Oh, by the way, this is not safe for work.

    Youre right, shes not that tall, she has to stand on the window to look over the exclusive boys school wall next door… lol.

    I thought it would take three or four comments before someone came up with something like, “Yes, she’s so short she has to stand on the desk to show herself off out the window,” but I see that I underestimated you mole.

    Both those pictures look like they are suffering from a bit of flare which is probably caused by the light coming in from the window behind the model.

    The problem with any model who is a little on the “petite” side is that it really shows up in nude images unless they are perfectly formed and even then the photographer has to be especially careful about viewpoint and camera angle.

Well, SAY something...
