Someone asked me to take some artistic nudes for them. This is not something I typically do. I want to be able to put my subject at ease. And I obviously want the photos to be tasteful. Any general advice would be appreciated.
Cool. Thanks!You guys are a big help! lol
I don't do this type photography but having taken art classes there are nude models for figure drawing classes; that's of course being done in a supervised situation. Doing this on your own I would think about having an assistant, and/or having the client bring along someone else so you are not in a situation of being alone with the client.
I'd find out more specifically what the client wants - what exactly is 'artistic' nudes? Seems open to interpretation. I'd discuss poses etc. and keep within agreed guidelines. Not sure if that needs to be specified in a contract or not, try American Society of Media Photographers or PPA for examples.
