Why nudeWhy nude?Why nude by ~Levine-photography
A question I kept asking myself till very recently. I think I know the answer now...
A woman needs clothes nowadays, clothes became a huge part of her life and I don't blame her for that
But clothes are more like an armour or an image - they reflect the person she wants everybody to see. Partly they reflect herself and partly - what she'd like to be.
But nudity is another thing. Completely. When nude she is completely different - unarmed and sensitive. Feminine as she can possibly be. Herself
That is what makes it so difficult to capture. You have to make her relaxed and confident. Don't scare her or cause her to pretend, act or defend her nudity. You need to assure her that it is completely natural to be herself. Just herself. Not a person evrybody sees but a person she realy is. That makes you a kind of confederate to her. She bestows you with something she doesn't show everybody - only the most close and trusted people.
