I always have a tendency to only add the best images to a gallery, you know, I have always suffered from those images which completely spoil a gallery. That's why some galleries here may not have a lot of images, but there's one thing you can expect when you click each link, which is that I have done my best to choose the best images from that gallery. That's why I have always said that I handpick each and every image I add to graceful nudes, I believe that this is what gives you a truly unique experience being here.
Masha(aka Lizel A (Met-Art) and Conny at FEMJOY) has a wonderful collaboration with Georg Shoes, they have produced a lot of beautiful galleries together and I am pretty sure that she has grown very comfortable dealing with him. Just look at the images and you will realize that she is truly having fun and that she's not just there because she had an appointment with the photographer on that day, the model's desire of being there can add a great atmosphere to every image.
I like the galleries that are inspired by classical mythology, I don't know whether this was the original intention of Georg Shoes when he choose that location, but it seems to me that the name of the gallery "wood nymph" matches the gallery quite well.
I have always imagined a wood nymph as a beautiful, pure, and carefree being. She loves nature and she is inspired by her, she doesn't like the elements brought by mankind and civilization which destroy her beautiful home. She doesn't want to die and that's why she hates the cutting down of the trees (each hamadryads' life was associated with a tree, if the tree dies the hamadryad dies). She loves the purity of nature and she fights everything that hates it.
Trying to link an imaginary picture in my mind to a certain gallery is a part of why I enjoy nudes, not because they're nudes, but because they remind me of certain moments in my life that I truly cherish, they give me hope of a better world where purity (nudity is a pure state of being) prevails and selfishness perishes.
I hope that you will enjoy this beautiful Amour Angels gallery of Masha by Georg Shoes.
You may remember Bess from the "Sweet and Romantic" gallery that I have posted a while ago. I promised that I will post her second gallery and here I am doing just that. I personally believe that this gallery is more beautiful than the other one, but I generally prefer outdoor settings.
Bess is clearly having a lot of fun in this shoot which is something that I really like. Almost all of the Abby Winters models are having fun during the photo shoot no matter what the nature of the shoot is. I believe that this is a clear sign that they respect their models and that the models are pretty comfortable being there which, in turn, means that the images will be of a better quality and will have a higher ability of inspiring us.
I am sorry I couldn't include any more pictures, I just have a strict policy against Bikinis and the shoot started while she was wearing a Bikini, it wasn't sexual, but I don't like bikinis.
This is Bess' first photo shoot at AbbyWinters and from what I see I can judge that she liked the experience there. Abby is a good photographer and she does know how to make her models have fun being in front of a camera.
I hope that you will enjoy this truly angelic gallery of Bess from Abby Winters.
Body In Mind sometimes features truly beautiful and inspiring galleries and I feel that some of their galleries could have used some more attention. The problem isn't with their highly-skilled photographers or their heavenly beautiful models, I believe the problem lies in the instructions they give to the photographers, this gallery is beautiful. But, there are some negative things about it, the most noticeable of them is what seems to be a problem with Tracy's right eye and the make-up. I can't really think of any woman who sun tans with make-up on. Women are supposed to enjoy nudity as a way of escaping the prevalent lies about beauty in our modern world, showing the innate beauty everyone has.
I personally prefer the shape of the female bodies because they aren't as muscular as male ones (most male models are body builders) and because of the attractiveness and the beauty of the female form. I enjoy the beauty of the model not because she's skinny or because she looks like a super model, I enjoy it because it presents a natural form of beauty, but when the natural look of the model is tainted with excessive make-up or any extraneous element the images become quite distracting. This is one of the reasons I prefer simple nudes to super nudes, they are more simple and more natural.
I will ignore my partisan inclinations towards simple nudes for a while and concentrate on highlighting the positive things about this gallery. First, it's a gallery by Chris Ruegge who's a renowned photographer known for producing beautiful nudes, Tracy is beautiful in the most graceful of ways, the location is good, there are no people around which makes the model feel more relaxed(I have an impression that she wasn't that relaxed at the time of this photo shoot), and it was shot outdoors (leaving an impression of the model feeling free). The last few images are better even though they aren't that innovative, I don't see the point behind making the model stand on some grass and shooting her.
The gallery is beautiful, but if you work at BiM, please tell your boss that the whole point of the images shouldn't be to depict the nude female form, but rather to combine the beauty of the female form with a lot of other elements to produce inspiring galleries. Remember, there's a very thin line between good nudes and pornographic nudes.
OK, I can hear some of you thinking, if he doesn't like this gallery that much then why is he adding it?! I am adding this gallery because it's beautiful, I tend to exaggerate the negative points about a gallery when I feel that it could have featured images which are of a better quality if those little extraneous details were removed. Make-up reminds me of the world of glamour, which isn't quite compatible with tasteful nudes. I am one of those who believe that fashion can be the biggest enemy of true beauty, combining some fashion elements with your pictures can produce good results(e.g Brigham Field), but it doesn't always produce beautiful results.
Anyway, I hope that you will enjoy this gallery of Tracy from BodyInMind.
Domai is the leading tasteful nudes website on the Internet, I can make that claim while being confident that few will disagree. It's simply the respect for the models' beauty that makes Domai one of the best websites on the Internet. They're not trying to promote any nudity which is sexual or arousing, they're just trying to give you the best nonsexual nudes which directly communicate with your higher senses and that's what makes Domai that special.
They have the works of a lot of great photographers as well(including Stefan Soell), it seems to me that every photographer I can think of has some works on Domai, which is quite surprising. I can also find almost every model I can think of there(Marketa Belonoha is known there as Jenny. I have included a picture of Maria Kenig in this gallery, she is known there as Mariah). What's quite surprising to me is that I was introduced to most of the photographers through Met-Art which places some emphasis on the creator of every gallery, however, through inspecting the Met-Art works of some photographers I have created a mental chart containing every photographer and his capabilities (more inclined to producing erotica, simple nudes, or super nudes). Anyway, I have found a lot of works of the photographers, whose works at Met-Art were considered by me to be of a low quality, at Domai, and to my surprise their works were very tasteful there. I don't know the exact instructions Met-Art gives to its photographers, but I am sure that the instructions given to the photographers by Domai simply bring out the best in them and make their talents resurface, thus, given you the best non-sexual nudes you can find anywhere.
I hope that you will enjoy this tasteful free Domai gallery.
Look at this gallery and you will fully understand the reason I love most of Stefan Soell's works. He does take a lot of time taking every picture trying to make every picture as unique as possible. It's very rare to find a photo set which contains more than 30-40 images by him. I believe that's because he hates repeating the same images. Every image is just perfect.
He is also one of those photographers that can capture the true female beauty in beautiful settings. He does take the time to think about his galleries and it seems to me that he doesn't shoot any picture in haste, which is something that I do respect.
The only thing that I didn't quite like about this gallery was that Mandy has used some make-up, but it doesn't really affect the quality of the images or their aesthetic values.
I hope that you will enjoy this Stefan Soell's gallery from FEMJOY.
I know that this gallery can be considered one of those "nude in public" galleries. I have said that I hate those nude in public galleries but I wasn't really specific, what I mean by a nude in public gallery is making the model stroll through a crowded public square completely naked and taking some pictures of her, that's what I do find offensive, not when the model is in a quite secluded place. I have noticed the presence of two human beings, but they were quite apathetic/unaware of Evgeniya's existence on that roof. I also believe that the main reason Oleg Fedorov has chosen this spot is that he wanted to show you the beauty of this Russian city and the grace of the Cathedral that stood behind Evgeniya in most of the photographs(if you notice the cross on the top of the two spires).
Russia has a lot of beautiful cities, if you have Google Earth take a look at their cities or search for some pictures of the Russian cities. It doesn't surprise me why the photographers are that proud of their cities in their galleries. They are quite colorful and there are a lot of beautiful buildings. Combining the beauty of the model with the beauty of a city is similar to combining the beauty of the model with the beauty of nature in that they both produce remarkable results.
I hope that you will enjoy this Just Teen Site gallery of Evgeniya by Oleg Fedorov.
It seems that there aren't a lot of photographers who appreciate the power of a model's smile. A smile in real life can make one's day, a smile from a relative or someone with which you share an intimate relationship can alleviate all of your pain, and a smile from a shopkeeper may make you always come back. I don't know why a lot of photographers seem to believe that it's any different with nude photography. A model's smile can indeed give the gallery a completely different sense, transforming it from a gallery of a tired model to a gallery of a young woman who's having fun being nude in nature without any unnecessary cultural constraints. I do judge a gallery by the look on the model's face, I hate the galleries of those models who look tired or even sick of the photographer, and those galleries are quite common. As a visitor of this website has told me "If there's no smile, it's not worthwhile".
I also prefer those galleries which are shot in nature because nature are a more hospitable environment for the models, there won't be anyone who's parasitically glazing at the model and making her uncomfortable and there won't be a lot of raised eyebrows or any gasps that she will hear as her photographs are being taken. I believe that some of those "public nudity" galleries are indeed humiliating for the models. This is another reason to prefer simple nudes to the other similar movements.
This gallery of Anna from Pretty Nudes is the perfect example of what I mean by saying that one feels that the model is a young woman having fun rather than feeling that she's there because the photographer is paying her some money. I rarely feature any galleries at which the model have that "I'd rather be somewhere else" look, if she wasn't very comfortable being there then I don't feel very comfortable looking at those pictures of her.
I hope that you will enjoy this wonderful Pretty Nudes gallery by Sergey Babenko.
Another masterpiece by Stefan Soell. I admit that I prefer long hair to short hair, but this doesn't affect the beauty or the quality of this Stefan Soell gallery.
I am not sure about the reason FEMJOY has named this gallery Cinderella, the flowers and the green bushes do add a romantic atmosphere to the images, but I can't see any true correlation between the fairytale and this gallery. The name should have been something like "Romance" or "Juliet". The grace of Silke makes this gallery look majestic, and this may be the reason they have called it Cinderella.
I hope that you will enjoy this FEMJOY gallery of Silke by Stefan Soell.
It took some digging for me to find this beautiful gallery. Sometimes it takes a lot of time for me to find the right gallery, but it's always worth the time.
This gallery of Julia is indeed very beautiful. I personally am a fan of those galleries which are shot outdoors, especially when those galleries don't have any close-ups of the model's genitalia. This gallery did have all of the things I was looking for, and this is what makes it so unique.
I hope that you will enjoy this Met Models gallery.
This series with Michelle Marsh greatly reminds me with the series with Nikkala Stott in which they followed her throughout a day. I have posted the morning gallery yesterday, and now this is an afternoon one. What really attracts me to those galleries is the lighting and the clean style of Michael White's photography. I like the window light which accentuates Michelle's beauty in a wonderful way, I just hope there were more pictures showing Michelle's facial beauty in this gallery.
I hope that you will enjoy this Body In Mind gallery of Michelle Marsh.
