About this nude business... I gotta ask.

Somewhere (I can't find it now...) it says that nude photos are not to be posted in portfolios except in special areas.

Okay, let me ask what constitutes a "nude" photo?

Is a topless shot a "nude"?
Is a sheer top showing nipple nude?
Is a thong shot in which the thong isn't readily visible because the model is turned at an angle a "nude"?

Or is a nude just total nudity? I won't even ask about shoes...


While I'm at asking questions... Does the no nude rule apply to forums?

BTW, it seems you can select font size only in the initial post... at least I haven't found a way to do it on edits...

I'll admit to being confused on the nudity stance myself. Nude photos are being shown in the "featured photo" section on the main page. These two were there when I logged-in tonight. Images are linked, rather than embedded...since I think they're not supposed to be displayed here.

If you are logged in, you will see nudes in the feature photos, it's for un-logged folks not to see. Nudes are nude, boobs and butts...not to mention frontal nudity. Let me put it another way, anything beyond PG rating if it helps, just use common sense.

In another way, what you would not want your 10-year old son or daughter not to see...we just want to be compliant with the laws and to prevent issues because of minors viewing nudes. Respect the children, thanks, rg sends!

Ignoring the double negative ("would not want.........not to see..."), it would seem some interesting decisions have been made concerning the future of the main forum. No "... boobs and butts...." (even the language seems to reflect a ten year old sensiblity)? Okay, I was going to write a story about shooting catalog, a test for a major magazine, and editorial fashion featuring different models, different l ocations and staffing, all on assignment in one day (season is unbelievably busy this year). Unfortunately I'd only be comfortable showing pictures from the catalog shoot (and I can't show the actual clothes because they were samples!).

I hope all of this actually works they way you hope it will, obviously things have hit a bit of a bump in the road when 7 of the 20 posts on the main page have less than 100 page views (including the oldest strings at the bottom of the page). One thing, is there any way to see who is on line at any given time (like we used to see including non-registered viewers)? And while you're at it, how about taking the time stamp off Greenwich Mean Time?

Okay, here is an acceptable image for a ten year old who hasn't yet discovered his or her dad's secret stash of Sports Illustrated swimsuit issues featuring Heidi Klum full frontal wearing nothing but body paint.

Fish you can't show any thing you shoot on South Beach on here. To much skin.
(Sigh) Sometimes I do miss Fla. By the way, I haven't seen any of your great photos lately. To cold?

Actually too hot! (For the main Forum, I mean.)

Just kidding, this has been the busiest season I can remember since I went to Australia in 2000. It's great, but as anyone who has been in this business for more than a couple of years will attest, it won't last. You have to do all you can while you're hot, and try not to spend all the money foolishly. The last time, I spent most of my ill got gain on women and booze. I wasted the rest!

So it goes.

ya know, when i've had really great runs--making sick money--i end up with nothing to show for it. when i've made substantially less i ended up with more to show for it.

go figure.

So just I have this right, Glamour 1 is a forum for glamour photography... but the images and ( I assume) disscusion have to be safe for a protected 10 year old?

Hmmm... can we have the old GG back?

I can understand with the present political climate how the owners of this board want to protect themselves, while still trying to make this a viable business... but is there a better way then having to make the place "kid safe"

How do other forums/ sites do it?

Glenn

Glenn,

We have laws here I have to follow, not always by choice. We can make a "safe" area by just making it entirely "you must register to view everything, including posts" then we could put nudes anywhere we wanted, that's how other sites do it.

It's not politics (on our part), it's a question do we police ourselves or take a risk of being shut down totally. For the record, Glamour 1 is for all the same topics from before and more than before. It's about putting the glamour back in glamour as well as putting the glamour back in photography. Thanks, rg sends!
