It takes a lot of skill to be a photographer. You need to know a lot about lighting, photography techniques, have a vision to present, and most of all, to know how to bring out the best of your subjects. In the case of nude photography, this means bringing out the model's hidden beauty in addition to her visible one.
Based on this definition, I can claim that David Allio is a great photographer, apart from the fact that he has been taking pictures for about 40 years and has received many awards, his works clearly show a mastery of the visual and a unique vision.
I really like pictures that show the subtle curves of the body, the "landscape" of our physical existence, the landscape that can almost resembles our planet.
There is a great human diversity in nudes that promotes tolerance. There also is the unique anatomy that represents the unmistakable human qualities that are a part of our beauty, and the beauty of humanity.
That's how art can be a window to the soul, you can learn a lot about humanity and life through a simple piece of art, art is the creation of the human mind, and our minds are our most previous possessions. It's seeing the world from a different perspective, a perspective of a person with a different vision, a perspective that can make you more aware of things that you simply didn't seem to notice.
Who knows, maybe you will learn a thing or two by looking at those American nudes. I certainly did.
I think that humanity will really progress once nudity is accepted everywhere, when self-awareness and self-acceptance are going to encouraged and appreciated, and when we're able to get over body shame and to accept our sexuality.
We don't need clothes to prove that we're different from all the other species. What makes us different is our volition and reasoning abilities. Those evolutionary advantages were never a permit for us to destroy the world, we only destroy everything when we stop thinking.
We need to accept sexuality and nudity as facts of life, to see them and appreciate them for what they represent. Our anatomy is unique, it is distinctly human, and so is body expression; the art of dancing and ballet. Sexuality is an art form, our courtship rituals are very unique. The social bonds that sexuality forms may not be unique to us, but I can argue that we do it better than any other species by channeling it through culture and even art.
In my opinion, humanity wastes a lot of time on irrelevant superfluous details. I think that it's about time we start thinking about what our universal message is and to move forward. This is more important than fashion standards or dress codes. It's our minds that make the difference at the end of the day, and that's the reason we are the dominant species. The presence or lack of clothes don't make us special or less civilized, nudes have always been at the zenith of civilization, that's because they represent who we are, they represent one of our unique abilities, which is the ability to create and enjoy art. Nudes have always adorned cave and temple walls, they have always been a source of inspiration for us, and they're going to continue being an inspiration for humanity in the future, but I truly hope that we will be able to accept that inspiration.
Anya is one of the few models who have complete control over their beauty. She always looks very graceful in all of her images, whether she's completely nudes, partially clothed, or completely clothed - the MPLStudios postcard series. I have seen her images many times at many different websites, but she always managed to keep her charm and her grace in every set. Whether it's at Domai or any of the many websites with Russian models, she always was the same beautiful woman that she truly is.
Photographers certainly have a role, but it's the model who inspires and helps in the creation of great art. Anya is one of the very special models who have been able to always help the photographers she's posed for create wonderful images.
She represents the vision of a young woman who appears to be in control of her life, destiny, and even how others see her.
I certainly hope that she will allow us to be inspired by her beauty for many years to come.
A personal vision of paradise is that of a tropical sunny beach that's full of tranquility. A getaway from concrete jungles with all of their pollution and crowds.
I think that what makes those getaways attractive is the harmony of colors, the fact that they offer a chance to relax and enjoy life in a semi-hedonistic way.
We can create our own paradise in the middle of our modern jungles. We can recreate the harmony of color, and if we're hard-working and good enough we may even have a person next to us, as beautiful as Sasha, helping us making it complete. All it takes is hard work and a bit of ingenuity.
Paradise doesn't have to be that far away, not when you believe and do something about all that you find ugly. By making the world a better place for yourself, you're helping in making it a better place for everyone else.
Meanwhile, Sasha is and will continue to provide the inspiration, the vision of a pristine paradise where honesty, in the form of nudity, prevails.
Tatyana poses near a castle in Sicily. While I have grown accustomed to expecting nudes shot in the United States from David-Nudes, this one still isn't disappointing. It's just as beautiful. Shot near the ruins of an old castle in Italy, it follows the theme of nudity and ruins, but it's executed very well.
The great things about that theme is that it shows nature's reclaiming some man-made structures. It's a transposition of the young and the old. The contrast can create wonderful results when it's executed well, as in this gallery. Tatyana's grace allow her to blend in with the scene, but her beauty is hard to miss.
I hope that you'll enjoy this gallery from David-Nudes.
There's something empowering about the image of a confident woman, the location is always irrelevant. There's that beauty in her gaze that makes her a living image of the ideal for humanity. Surefooted and moving towards the future. It doesn't matter whether the past was better than the present, what matters is that she knows she can create a better future for herself.
This is beauty, in all of its marvelous exuberance.
There's nothing shameful about female genitalia. What's shameful is reducing a female's importance to her genitalia, which is what commonly happens on most nudes websites with the exception of BodyInMind and Domai.
When I look at nude pictures, I basically look for independent women who have the courage to be free. Women who aren't afraid to reveal who they are, which is represented by their nudity, to the world. Without paying any attention to any "flaws" that the world may point out. Those women have reached a stage of accepting who they are where they don't need to care about the negative thoughts of those around them. Certain social attitudes are the perfect glass-ceiling. Submitting to the whims of others is a form of modern social slavery after all. This is what modesty is about after all. By employing the force of social pressure modesty makes everyone look the same and masks the differences that make us unique. It's true that those who lead the most uneventful of lives are those who are least likely to attract any attention. However, what's life for if you don't strive to become who you want to be, to strengthen your self-respect while maintaining your integrity in the process?
I once attacked material possessions, the problem really isn't in those possessions, or even the "be unique by having this product" sort of advertisements. The issue lies in the inability of some individuals to find and fight for their individuality. The products then serve as a temporary hypnotics. I think that this is the reason why some people have such a rush after shopping for things that they neither need nor have a use for.
Those models have found their individuality, have embraced their bodies and their selves, and have decided to proudly stride forward towards a future that they will shape through their own decisions and mistakes. They have found their true beauty, and they're not willing to sacrifice it for the best modesty adjectives in the world.
There are many women out there who do the same without posing nude at beautiful locations, but the society has all sorts of labels to attack them, they may be called "geeks, tomboys, sluts, or anything else, the list is endless". Even on TV, the social successful people are those whose self-respect is derived from the adulation of others, which is another form of slavery. It's a nasty game of self-destruction.
That's why I like the thumbnail picture to the left that much. That pose is full of confidence and self-assurance, and Tiffany looks just like the rest of us, but she's different, can you guess why?
I am full of respect for her, and for all the models and women who have ever fought to discover their beauty, we should all be.
This is a gallery featuring pictures of four of the models who are going to appear on Domai's member pages in the following weeks.View Gallery
Ava has a very cute smile. She has started modeling a while ago and her images have appeared at a lot of websites including Met-Art - as Indiana A. I have to admit that her smile looks funny at times. Sometimes she looks very innocent, but at other times she shows that innocence can go well with feminine beauty.
This is one of her many galleries from MPL-Studios. I hope that you're going to like it.
