Kathy is very familiar, but I can't really tell where I saw her before. She already has 8 sets on Domai, but I can almost swear I saw her somewhere else.
This is a classic indoor set from Domai, a simple location, minimal props, and a very beautiful model. Kathy's charming smile is definitely highlighted many times throughout this set, and her beauty is hard to miss.
If you like this set then I recommend that you pay Domai a visit, they have a lot of nudes like these with models who are just as beautiful and attractive as Kathy.
Mariah has such a wonderful charm. After all those years after first seeing her for the first time, she still manages to cheer me up and to put a smile on my face whenever I see her. She has an infective love for life and that makes her have a wonderful appeal.
She never appeared in any set in which her beauty was not fully captured and presented. She's definitely one of the models with whom it's hard to mess up your work as a photographer.
Everything about her is perfect: her spirit, her smile, her grace, her self-respect, and her beauty. She's a true reincarnation of a goddess.
I wonder what has become of her and whether she's still posing. I just know that she must be happy leading the life that she's dreaming of: it's hard not to when you have such a charming personality, intelligence, and self-respect.
Sometimes one falls into a really dark mood, with no hope and no will to do anything. Whatever may be behind those strange moods I have discovered a great way to get rid of them, it's the healing power of beauty once again.
I was in a gloomy mood early in the morning today, it wasn't because of alcohol or anything similar(didn't go to a party). It was one of those mysterious moments when you suddenly lose your hope and feel that everything around you is pointless.
Usually, when I have that mood I don't want to do anything new. However, I visited Domai today, and all of a sudden that mood simply disappeared. I am not lying, it just vanished(if it didn't then you wouldn't be reading this now). I had a strange power to rearrange everything and to start doing whatever I was procrastinating. It's really amazing what true beauty can do to one's soul.
I discovered this cure a while ago by chance when I was at Body In Mind, since then wherever I feel blue I just visit Domai or Body In Mind and just get rid of that nasty mood. It works!
Try it the next time you're feeling down, you will be glad you did.
It seems that beauty can be better than Prozac. Thanks Polyna for being who you are!
Nudity isn't immoral. This statement may contradict with the beliefs of many persons, even some of you. However, the belief that nudity is immoral is an illogical one, it's not supported by facts, and a belief is a weak one when there's no evidence to support it.
Ask anyone who claims that nudity is immoral about the reasons that make him make such a statement, you will probably find a blank answer. S/he may start linking it to the sexual aspect that may be perceived with nudity, but this sexual aspect depends mainly on the viewer and the environment in which the state of being nude can be found. Most of the men on nudist beaches simply don't think in a sexual way when they see beautiful and brave nude women strolling down the beach. They may glance at the bodies of young women, but it's in the same way they glance at the bodies of other men. They may admire the athletic nature of those bodies, wonder about the hours spent in the sun to get that sun tan, or just catch a glimpse of those bodies as they stare idly at the horizon. The sexual element is simply absent because the environment is tolerant of nudity; it isn't a taboo there. This, alone, proves that nudity isn't about sexuality.
If that person that I have mentioned before doesn't mention the sexual aspect of nudity then s/he will probably be left speechless, quickly trying to find anything that may justify that irrational belief of his/her.
Let's just define the word morality, according to Merriam-Webster's Collegiate Dictionary it means:
conformity to ideals of right human conduct.
Does non-sexual nudity not conform to the ideals of right human conduct?
No, ethical clothed human beings exhibit the same demeanor and conduct when they're nude. The fear of nudity is nourished by the insecurities of some human beings; they're afraid that other human beings may be judgmental when they see them nude. It's simply your pure state without any masks or any lies, and that freaks some human beings out, especially those whose lives stand on a plethora of lies.
We all probably consider ch*ldhood as time of innocence. Take a look around you and you will find that young human beings are indeed more comfortable being naked or half-naked than being fully clothed. I don't have a progeny of my own, but I have heard a lot of anecdotes about young human beings who are reluctant and take some training in order to learn how to stay clothed. I can conclude easily that "nudophobia" is something of nurture, and not something of nature. All other life forms aren't self-conscious about their nudity, we're just the species whose social hierarchy has accommodated the role of textiles and accessories as a display of power. Instead of males' hitting their chests in the jungle we simply wear the latest sunglasses to show that we have a high socioeconomic status and therefore can demand a lot of respect.
There's just one thing that you need to do when someone claims that nudity is immoral, just analyze the statement. Soon you will realize that it's an unfounded one.
Anyway, I hope that you will enjoy this set of Julie from Domai by Rustam Koblev, it's not immoral.
"What's more beautiful than a beautiful young woman? a smiling beautiful young woman" This question along with its answer keeps reverberating through my mind for almost 3 days now. I know that I have said many times how much I appreciate the beauty of a woman's smile, but every smile is as unique as the goddess who has it on her angelic visage.
It's not just any smile, there are many types of smiles that we come to recognize as we grow older. There are many types of smiles that I often see while choosing my galleries: those include the forced smile, the insipid sexual smile, and the nervous smile. The forced smile is a smile that a model makes just because the photographer has told her to smile, it is far from being spontaneous and often doesn't involve the whole face, I mainly consider it a teeth show-off and not a smile as it often doesn't include the whole face. The insipid sexual smile can be easily recognized as you probably have seen it many times, it's one of the types I despise the most. The nervous smile is when the model is trying to smile to ward off the anxiety of her being nude(often for the first time).
And of course there's that genuine confident carefree smile that is truly rare to find, it's the smile that holds all of the positive meanings in life and attracts one's attention in the same way the north pole always attracts the compass needle. It's the type of smile that adds a charming radiance to the beauty of that young lady. Its power lies in its ability to combine a lot of virtues to inspire towards a better world. This is the smile that I see in this gallery and is one of the many elements that make Domai and Body In Mind that inspiring.
I hope that you will enjoy this gallery of Nasiya from Domai by Rustam Koblev.
