Hi

This is my first non implied nude shot - as in you can actually see the girls so I am a little nervous to post it - mostly because my parents occassionally view my portfolio. So this is a two part question. 1. If I am comfortable posing nude and like a picture taken of me during a nude shoot should I post it or respoect my parents wishes (despite me not living at home and being of age)?

2. Which version of this shot do you prefer?

Hi Lindsay

1. Only YOU can answer that one. Nobody can answer it for you because YOU have to bear the consequences whatever happens.
2. I quite like the second one - it's different.

Thanks

I have been getting a lot of compliments from people who have stopped by my page. And I really like them - I think at some point my parents will need to know I am grown up now - maybe now is the time.

Here is a cropped version of the shot you mentioned liking since I had a few comments that the lamp didn't add anything to the shot.

Yep! The cropped version is a lot better.
I forgot to mention that I had a look at your portfolio and thought it was pretty cool.
Good luck with your future. You're certainly beautiful and should delight any photographer you pose for.

Youre also an adult and can certainly make your own decisions in life, but sometimes parents always regard their children as children no matter how old (it's a parent thing)

Lindsay,

You'll always be their "little" girl, no matter how old you are or the "adultness" of the responsibilities of your life. That's a given.

On the other hand, if seeing an image of you nude is going to cause your parents so much of a problem that it will affect your relationship, then you have to consider those consequences before posting the images.

Perhaps, though, it's not necessarily a blanket condemnation of your posing nude that your parents have, but rather a concern that you might be exploited, or that your images will be for less than 'artistic' purposes. If that might be the case, allowing Mum and Dad to view some images of you that present your figure in an artistic manner might help. I've even heard of models that brought Mom along (as the escort of the day) to see that it wasn't a full-blown drunken orgy when the model was working without clothing.

In the end, each of us deals with the choices we make in life, and I hope that yours work out well for you (and your family).

By the way - I like the watercolor effect of the first image, but agree that the tight crop of the second photo makes it a stronger image.



Here's Amy, to meet the requirements of this section of the forum.... and, coincidentally, someone who dealt with similar questions.

L,
Last week I shot a girl in similar situation. She was 18 and we did implied with 1 nip showing - and panty or hand southwest of the border. It was the most you can go without total nude. The work is fantastic but she has boyfriend and parent issues with posting.
What I told her was - modeling is to be looked at and the more people who want to look at you the more successful you are as a model. You have to make your stand and that includes nude no nude or parents. Modeling is sexy stuff with or without clothes and if she was my daughter then just practice safe sex and modeling. I think if u do nude and good at it you should post proud before your gray like me.
By the way all versions are great but I agree with tighter crop. Its you we want to see.

Regarding the images, I prefer the second image with the tighter crop. Regarding your portfolio and what to include: have you considered having two portfolios? One can be a more modest portfolio for family and friends and the second a portfolio that would include some of your nude work - that is to say, a more "business" portfolio.Obviously you provide links to the specific portfolios that you want people to see.
Best wishes,
gus
