Naked GIRL implies one girl... and yet you say THEY will be naked! So, like MULTIPLE personalities? Make sure they are well medicated! :) lol!

and what ONE thing were you going to focus on? :p

What do you mean focus on one thing? I would shoot in color then convert. If you shoot raw the raw image will still be in color.

Surely if you've arranged for this you've got some idea of what you want to create with the event itself? You should go to the event with poses and ideas already firm in your mind in order to get the shoot to work. If its an event they've hired you for then ideally you should have already discussed some ideas for poses that they want in advance (helps avoid wasting time on the day).

In addition ensure you've taken an aid with you and also given them the instruction to bring a friend/companion as well. Nude shoots are something that can go sour in the aftermath and the last thing you want is accusations made against you for which you have no defence. In addition whoever they bring make sure its not a boyfriend/significant other (its often found that boy/girlfriends can be a hindrance/problem on nude shoots).

Yes I do have some ideas already about the poses I want.. And no it isn't a paid event it is for my friend.. And yea I understand about bringing someone that isn't a boyfriend or significant other..

It didn't say a specific one but it said go in knowing what you want to focus on other wise it isn't going to work.. It will be a disaster.. Like should I get full body poses and also parts of the body

If its a full body pose with her face - then I would think you'd want to focus on her eyes. If its a boob/butt shot then obviously you'd focus on her boob/butt

It's important to remember that many many photography articles are not so much teaching you all the ways to take a picture, but are often detailing how the writer would take a certain shot given certain conditions and situations. They are imparting their vision into the article they write and giving you one potential creative aspect to consider.
In the end a great part of learning photography is copying and taking these ideas from many different sources and experimenting with them. Trying them out, learning how to reproduce them and then learning how to adapt, change, modify, combine etc.... The result of which is that you'll start to develop your own "eye" for what you want to create and show with the camera.

Oh ok I understand what you mean.. So try what I see and develop my own way at the same time.. Thank you so much that actually helps alot.. Because I would read photography articles and wouldnt really understand what they did

Why not that Georgia O'Keeffe painting betwixt her legs as well?

What kind of shoot is this, a pornographic shoot? Or artistic nudes?

If they're artistic nudes, I'd say you have to get creative... More creative than just "boobs" and "butt". There's a lot more to it that thoughtlessly drooling over a womans lady parts while clicking away at a shutter.
