This is from a quick shoot with a friend who has a major underwear fetish. He certainly has the body for wearing very formfitting or revealing pieces.
This is his first attempt at posing and I think it turned out well.

He has very feminine hips. But is that missing the point? Right. To me. I see the lines, and the roundness.

Random... From afar, if you squint it almost looks like two bodies coming together.

Beautiful composition!

I'm actually surprised at the femininity of the piece considering it's a make model. There's nothing bad about it, I just think it's hard for a guy to do without it looking fake or just plain gay...in a mocking sense I mean.

I hate to say it, but the piece looks a little uniform. I love the range of greys, but I think I would've wanted to see more black in it.

...at the same time though, that might have have taken away from the sensuality of the photo, which makes it so pleasing to the eye.

Honestly this turned out really really nice. Great job and congrats on your DD!

Thanks for the constructive feedback. I had tried to bump up the blacks (there are some pure dark areas) but I started losing some of the details so decided to stick with this...

And in the long run, it's good that you didn't. Adding more black into it would've probably have made it look less like a piece of art and more like a jacket cover to an erotic novel, LOL!

I'm sorry but I have to say it again, this is a great photo. It's nice to know that there are still some people out there that actually understand the meaning of "artistic nude", lol!!

did u know a gay photographer of the name of Robert Mapplethorpe took a self-portrait of him with a bull whip in his ass? and yes, it's art. u shouldn't even be a member of this website if u don't know what true art is.

very nice pic, btw xplormmm :)

im sorry u feel that way, but thats just what art is sometimes. u need to take a class once in a while before u start critizing other's work. in art school they teach u how to give a crit the right way and how to spot people who are just being immature.

If all you see is an ass... then you're missing the point. I'd be very curious to see what a photograph of your ass taken with a cel phone looks like...

It would probably look like the piece of shit camera's that are in cell phones. Timmaybiotch, (lol what a name) seriously, it has to do with the approach of the photograph, the attention paid to apperture, lighting, composition, contrast. Those are the things that make photography good and 'artistic'. Anyone can take a photo, but not everyone can make art.

It's a nude guy... not sure that immediately makes it "gay". If it does, there a lot of art history that needs to be rewritten!

Underwear fetish? That's one I've never heard before. Anyways, I love the way this photo was taken, the lighting, the angle, everything is just perfect. I especially love the focus, so close that you can see the goose-bumps. Was it cold? :+fav:

I think it's more of a gay thing, but if there are any ladies out there who can contradict me, please do so... and let me know if you're interested in modeling!
It was a little cold... I think he was just nervous about posing... was his first time.

Yeah well the first time is always nerve wracking. You want female models? I have them in spades! Four or five girls begging me to use them in a shoot, but what I can't seem to find is a willing male model. I guess the grass is always greener.

If you know of any in the Chicago area, let me know...
As for male models, my experience has been that guy guys are more willing to do it than straight guys... especially of you're doing nudes. Manek is totally up for modeling, so long as his face isn't in the photo. He's not quite ready to be that public about his nudity. He's mentioned he would like to do full shots with his face in it at some point, but not now. So maybe the trick is to approach guys with the intention of not showing their faces? This isn't necessarily a hinderance as it makes you focus on other parts of the male anatomy... ;-)

Sorry, all my girls are from Upstate NY. And I'll keep that in mind, though most of my guy friends are gay, they still keep away from me whenever I have a camera in my hand. Oh well, I shall survive; thanks for the tips.

I'm glad I'm not the only one who sees the feminine curves... :P

I like this a lot- it's very androgynous and sensual. Kudos on removing the underwear. ;)

Congrats on the DD! It's well-deserved.

Honestly when shooting this I had some intentions of raising questions... I'm very happy people are asking them.

You should see him in some of his underwear!
