Ummm....discussion! :)

Sooo... I don't exactly know what exactly we're s'posed to do.... err, I mean post. So I just thought, what about a discussion? So here it is.

What do you think of nudity in photography?

What I personally think, and this is just my opinion, is that it makes me uncomfortable to look at, and frankly I don't like it. I think Just maybe a bare back is okay, as long as it's not, like, slutty or too revealing or stuff... That doesn't mean I think it's okay, I just don't mind it as much. The thing I don't like is full-blown, take off yer knickers sort of nudity. Even just showing of a butt is just like, eww, don't wanna see your private details! Now, I'm not trying to offend anyone or something. This is a discussion. Those are just my thoughts.

What are yours?


Oh, by the way, I do have Formspring. Ask me anything. I'll post it on my Flickr.


  1. As long as it's obviously not some porn picture. I'm sure as I grow older, I won't really give as much of a damn.

  2. good topic melanie! i used to be a real prude when i was younger. nowadays, i can apreciate some nude photos (backs, bums & breasts) but that's it. the human body is quite beautiful, but here has to be a fine line between art & porn.

  3. that's what I think too :)
    Just wsnted to know what you guys think...

  4. i admit that it's awkward to visit a photostream to be greeted with nude photography, but nudity is an art for many.. if executed properly

    and i absolutely agree with the comments above

  5. Haha, It is akward, I dont mind back that muh either.

  6. I am not a fan of it, but that's not to say that I don't think of it as art. It's just not an art form that I am interested in.

  7. Honestly, the human body is a beautiful thing (more so the female form, no offence guys!) and as long as the photos are tastefully done they can be truly beautiful

  8. I think it depends on how the photo is presented. I think it's okay as long as the private parts are not showing. Like find a way to cover it. As long as it's not obvious that it's a porn picture, but a piece of art, then I should be fine with it. Because if it is presented properly and well, it can be a really beautiful and amazing piece of art.
