Tips for nude self portraits
Hello everyone!
In this journal I will explain effective ways to take good nude self portraits. Most of my work are self portraits and within my time I have been doing self portraits for I have developed some of my own tricks that I use that I would love to share with my followers. 


Comfort: The very first tip is comfort. Make sure you are comfortable with doing nude self portraits. Remember, many people will be viewing these portraits so you cannot have any fear or shame. You have to have the awareness that you are going to be nude (maybe not fully nude) and you have to be okay with nudity work all together. All of this definitely takes some time in the process. You may have to start small, by doing implied work (just showing your back and covering yourself up just a bit) and grow from there. When you start doing this, the more comfortable you will get in time. You will find yours

Interesting.  I happened across one of my images on tumblr.

orig08.deviantart.net/2641/f/2…

Some 380 shares and likes; and it has been posted a number of other places (by Google image search) - all without credit, it appears. 

It's the hazard of posting online and why some use watermarks. I do find it interesting that this nicely idyllic but not very striking image is one of the ones lifted/
The exhibit went off very well Friday night.  We were all very pleased by the turnout - we had steady traffic and at times the gallery was all but full!  Thanks to everyone who attended and special thanks to Darrin and Daniel for putting it on!

I've been invited to show work in a group exhibition in January. "Celebrating the Nude Male Form." (edited to correct exhibition title.) Yes, who'd have thought my first exhibit in all these years would be male nudes!  If you'll be in Dallas in January and want to see the show pm me for details.

I've booked a nude model in Minneapolis for a day next week.  Normally I depend on professional models to recommend the available sites when I am shooting out of town - they've been to most of the local spots - but that's not working this time.  I have found a few possible low cost studios - it would be nice to hear from a photographer with personal experiencee.

Any leads of thoughts will be very much appreciated.
It turns out that, as a constraint, anonymity need not be a handicap.
