Nude photography is a genre most photographers dabble in every now and again. I’ve often thought of nude photography as a natural extension of portraiture; if you’re going to spend so much time on trying to capture the ‘essence’ of who somebody is, in some cases shedding any barriers between the model and the camera (such as clothes) is the next logical step. One thing that can be a challenge, is to translate portraiture techniques into nudes. For right or wrong, there are still a few social taboos around nudity – and even in relation to photographing nudes – and I often receive e-mails from people who want to give it a right good go, but can’t quite figure out how to get started.
