how to take better nude self portraits

This article talks about how to take better nude self portraits and contains some helpful tips and tricks that might help you improve your photos! Before I start I just want to point out that anybody who follows me on twitter might notice that I share a lot of nude self portraits and this article is going to outline the steps I take to capture those self portraits that many have asked me questions about how I got those shots. Well there are a number of different techniques you can use & I’ll try my best to cover them in this article. Personally, I normally use a camera w/a tripod for my photos but if you only have a cell phone I have outlined steps for those in this as well. Camera w/Tripod Here are steps for using a camera with a tripod. Camera w/shutter timer or wireless remote (if your camera supports it) Tripod Now that you have your equipment you need to setup your camera on a tripod and get it positioned where you want …

A photographer learns that baring it all isn’t so bad

#The Naked Truth of Washington’s Clothing-Optional Park The word “nudist” comes with some baggage. It conjures the image of sexual deviancy and a world where standard rules of ettiquette don’t apply. Jordan Stead, a staff photographer for seattlepi.com, found the contrary to be true. Nudism, or “naturism,” has a lot of rules. Most of the etiquette at the nudist park he photographed is common sense. Don’t stare. Children must always be supervised by a parent or guardian. All members and visitors need a background check. The “take-everywhere sitting towel” is a necessity, because as the official park rules stipulate, “it’s a common practice to place something between your bare buns and any public surface you sit or lie upon Stead first became aware of Fraternity Snoqualmie’s family nudist park when he saw a portrait by Alan Berner of the Seattle Times. Three older men, completely nude, were photographed holding volleyballs in front of their nether regions. The picture remained in Stead’s mind until April 2014, when he embarked on a photo story about the park …

I’ve been a nudist by heart my whole life, part 4

Originally posted on My Blog:
Well, here is my fourth part (and maybe the final one) of me being a nudist by heart my whole life. I have seen works of nude art throughout my life, and they have never bothered me. When I visited an uncle and two cousins in April 2006, one time one of my cousins told me she would see a boy in the show King of the Hill naked, and she told me about it. It did not shame or disgust me. National Geographic magazine does show naked people at least at times, and throughout life I’ve seen those magazines. Some magazines do show nudity, and the nudity has never bothered me. The show of SpongeBob Squarepants sometimes shows a few of the characters naked. I would see that during 2008 and 2009 in some scenes with nudity, at least on one character, and it did not bother me. In my sophomore year of high school, one time around April 2008 in history class, the teacher said to cover our…

New Zealand broadcaster reveals he is nudist calls on judge to do the same

Paul Henry uncovers his nudist ways During a feedback segment on Tuesday’s show one audience member wrote in suggesting Henry tell the public why he was so passionate about the subject. “I’m actually not passionate about it, in fact, I’m exactly the opposite,” Henry said before announcing he was a nudist. “We know that people have huge hang-ups on nudity,” he said. “And for me it’s no big deal, is it? It’s no big deal at all.” Another commenter said judges needed to be transparent and should avoid situations where they left themselves vulnerable to blackmail. “If he is a nudist, who cares, be proud of who he is. It has no reflection or consequence on how he holds up the law,” the audience member said. Paul Henry agreed with this statement. “I think it does a disservice to nudists that he’s hiding behind it. “He’s been caught out, but caught out for doing nothing illegal, it’s just the way he leads his life. Just tell us who you are, judge.” Source: The Stuff Co …

Should you just “come out” as nudist

The Impact of Coming out on Your Job & Family One year my wife worked for a large corporation and we hosted World Naked Gardening Day at our house. The media found out so we let them all know and were on TV 4 times and on the front page of the local paper. NOTHING happened at work besides a few innocent jokes. Several thought it was really cool. And even though we were all over the news for it, we had no major issues with the general public, although our HOA did have a long discussion with us, which resulted in them realizing we weren’t out to flash their kids or anything, so it blew over just fine. I also started wearing kilts and going out in public with my toes painted years ago. I thought these too would cause my issues. Neither hurt me at all, so most fears are indeed in our mind, we just have to be willing to confront them, which I know not all are. And I think that’s …

A decade ago fears of Nude invasion in Thailand

A Decade Ago: Invaders of the nude variety PHUKET: The Phuket Gazette’s page one story a decade ago was about water supplies being enough to keep Phuket’s thirst quenched for the high season. However, the juicy part of the January 14-20 issue was the ‘Inside Story’: Are nudists itching to invade Thailand? The Tourism Authority of Thailand had called on Phuket Governor Udomsak Uswarangkura to see if the island would be willing to go full monty to please Goldman & Partners, the operator of the Costa Natura ‘naturist’ resort on the Spanish Mediterranean coast, as it looked to expand into Thailand Source: Phuket Gazette http://m.phuketgazette.net/phuket-news/A-Decade-Ago-Invaders-the-nude-variety/62904

It looks like I’ve been a nudist by heart my whole life (continued from the Sept. 2015 blog post)

Hello, this is part 2 of how I look like I’ve been a nudist at heart throughout my life. This continues from my September 2015 blog post “Have I been a nudist by heart throughout life?” Well, here’s my continuation from that blog post. Throughout childhood I would be open-minded on who would see me naked. I swam nude briefly once when I was 10 years old around July 2003. I found it to be fun. As a child I didn’t really change clothes out of the sight of others, not a whole lot. While I did begin to change clothes out of the sight of others as a teenager, at other times I also wanted to be naked. If I had been raised as a nudist I would probably have become self-conscious of nudity in youth since starting at age 13 I would be ashamed and embarrassed of even being shirtless with my immediate family. In January 2010, once at night around 10 p.m. I got naked in my…
