Zemani is another Russian website that has emerged recently, and built a satisfactory collection in the process. Most of the images can be classified as simple nudes with that very distinct Russian touch. I normally shy away from such websites as they're as likely to disappear as quickly as they appear.
There's one thing that did catch my attention about a couple of the galleries that they have there; The models are often very beautiful and there's an amazing sense of warmth in many of the images. This particular gallery reminds me of a wonderful trip to Eastern Europe. It has that distinct Eastern look about the plains, a wonderfully beautiful model, and a sense of a very relaxed atmosphere. It brought back some warm memories, but I hope that you will still be able to relate to it even if you have never been to the East.
This is another installation of the wonderful collectors cut series. I like it when websites revisit their old sets, and a goddess like Anya certainly deserves renewed respect and her beauty deserves attention.
It's a simple outdoors gallery in a beautiful meadow on a beautiful Summer day. I think that Jan Svend has made a difference since he started shooting for MPLStudios. Most of the beautiful sets that they have were produced by him.
I hope that you'll like this gallery.
One of the things that made Evas Garden such a successful website is the unique colors of their galleries. They have a certain touch when retouching their images that make them stand out. They did spend some time making models who did not make it onto the front pages of other websites into stars, they gave them prominence and took the time to make their beauty really count. I think that this is a worthy cause and is one of the reasons why I am somewhat neutral about Evas Garden.
The wet theme is very common. Getting a model to stand under a shower head seems to be the pastime for many photographers, but it's true that it's not that common to have the model stand out in such sets and to have it all in bright colors.
I think that it's a different gallery. I just hope that you'll like it.
Demian Rossi has produced a series of sets in the past which can be easily identified by the presence of a red strip of cloth - a red blanket. It was used many times in many galleries with many models. Including Susann. It's just amazing how many results he managed to get using such a simple prop.
I think that some of the outstanding sets from that 'red blanket' series are those produces near that black volcanic sand. It brings out the contrast between the environment, the model, and the cloak. The latter of which adds a lot of dynamism when it interacts with the wind. Choosing a time at which the sun rays are gentle and have reddish hues certainly helped him create some of the most breathtaking galleries on FEMJOY.
This is one of those galleries, and as you can see, Olivie is a very special model. She's very brave - as evidenced by her somewhat atypical haircut, and the fact that she isn't looking around. she has a very gentle beauty that makes you wonder about her personality in real life. In some of the images, Demian did manage to bring out her amazing smile, which made those images even more alluring.
It's an ethereal gallery shot at an ethereal location with the wonderful Olivie. Certainly the recipe for a masterpiece.
There's something that's always attractive about a young woman jumping in the air. This form of air-borne beauty represents freedom. It's often accompanied by joyful expressions, and that makes them even more alluring.
Nicolina has a strong character. She does look unique and has a smile that truly fills your soul with a feeling of warmth. Her wild hair is more than matching for a personality that seems to truly enjoy life and living. I don't think that she's doing it for the money, she's having too much fun for that. :)
It's another wonderful gallery from Domai. I do feel grateful that Eolake is featuring beautiful galleries like this more commonly.
This is the second gallery from the wonderful American model Liz Ashley to appear on GN. Also from Morey Studio.
Morey's sharp style is very clear in this gallery. Liz looks alluring with minimal props and make-up. He has a great way of adding glamor into the world of erotica while creating artistic nudes in the process. It's a very unique mix. His works with Liz Ashley strongly remind me of Courbet's L'Origine du monde. It's not the visible pubic hair, but it's a striking simplicity and artistic vision, a reverence for the beauty of female genitalia.
I know that this is not the typical GN style of galleries. I do find that approach admirable, and that's why I think that featuring it is worthwhile.
A new classy gallery from Evas Garden, another website that hasn't been featured here for quite a while.
Denisa is a remarkable Czech model with a somewhat low profile that has appeared on a lot of online website, and it's easy to see why she's so successful with her amazing grace and hard-to-miss beauty.
I just hope that you like it.
Every website that is has an ethical philosophy strives to show the human side about its models, those women who brighten their pages and make the wonderful but tiring process of capturing beautiful process worthwhile. Most people say that they envy photographers for the fact that they get to meet the models, and I do agree. However, my envy is more related to the fact that they get to interact with the models, to see the human side that makes their beauty so striking, so real.
I have seen many nudes during the three positive years during which this website has been online, and I have to admit that I did see a lot of models who meet the 'beauty standards', with all the right measurements, facial symmetry, and even nationality. However, a lot of those models didn't appear truly beautiful in their images, and those who did always turned out to have great personalities - as evidenced in many interview videos that some websites have. I personally think that it's this human aspect that makes nudes, or human beauty, have that strikingly powerful uplifting effect on my psyche.
Cynicism is always a temptation in real life. It's more than easy to be unethical and to justify it through the belief that human nature is evil - religiosity is also a form of passive aggressive cynicism. It's a positive feedback cycle, unethical behavior tends to create more unethical behavior, and ethical behavior tends to promote ethical behavior, there's nothing mysterious about that.
So, in the times when it seems that I am floating in a sea of hypocrisy and corruption, nudes serve as an oasis. As a testament to human greatness and to human beauty. Nudes with a personal twist are even more alluring, they provide an impetus to be ethical, to remain faithful to one's own ideals. To reach my potential. They're hope. Hope for a better future and a better world. I have explained many times why any legislation that is out there to outlaw the display of the human body, one of the strongest characteristics and most beautiful aspects of humanity, is a tyranny's way of suppressing hope by promoting all that's unethical and depriving us of the respect that we have to ourselves as individuals, as a species, and as living beings.
In those Canada candids, Dwayne and Leanne Bell decided to share the experience that they had with the models. To allow us to take a peek behind the curtains and find out the secret to a woman's beauty. I hope that you'll like it.
This is one of the very few times that I will actually recommend that you join a website, but take my word on this, this gallery is simply amazing. It was really tough choosing those few images out of the many fantastic images that are in there. If you're a fan of Nikkala Stott, Peta Todd, or human beauty, then get a BodyInMind membership, you won't regret it. If you do, you can write to me and I will gladly take the blame. Just tell me off in an e-mail.
Another new gallery from a website that I haven't visited in a while. In times like these, when trash is the norm, it pays to visit one of those hidden 'oases' looking for some beautiful nudes. I think that my quest has somewhat succeeded as I found a couple of galleries that I fell in love with at Grace And Beauty.
I think that there are a couple of things that make Grace And Beauty special; the fact that almost every model comes from the U.S. and a certain retro good-old-days sort of feeling that permeates some of the images. The photography is often simple, and the models are often just relaxing or having fun, there aren't a lot of professional poses with the exception of a few galleries, which include this one.
It somehow reminds me of Abby Winters, but I feel that it fits more into the simple nudes category. The entire website feels somewhat informal, almost as if it a diary of a photographer who shares his passion for photography, beauty, and the amazing personalities of his models with the world. It's almost strange that you have to pay, but with the fact that models charge for their time, it isn't a real surprise.
I initially found it a bit confusing moving around the website, but I got used to it after a while. They have an amusing sex-in-the-news section in there, along with some written erotica. They do have some freebies, but I am not that sure about how great the stories are. The images on the tour are indeed fantastic.
Anyway, I hope that you'll enjoy this gallery from there.
Do you have any comments/suggestions about the format of this gallery? Do you find having the images open in a new window convenient? if you feel like discussing anything then please choose contact from the top menu and feel free to make yourself heard.
I really like it when photographers occasionally return to simplicity. I can safely claim that Stefan Soell's genius lies in the fact that he can make his simple images so vividly rich and inspiring that they can become breathtaking. I also like the fact that his German models are often extraordinary girls that we're likely to meet, but whose beauty truly shine when it's viewed through the eyes of a photographer with extraordinary abilities such as Stefan.
I don't quite know what caught my attention about this gallery. Was it that Mitzie has a charming serene sort of beauty? Maybe it's the simplicity of a well-done studio set? Maybe it's my fascination and respect for German models and beauty. I can't quite pinpoint a reason, but I am quite sure that you will like this set as well. A set of a beautiful German girl and an extraordinary German photographer.
