Warning: Welcome back to our photography – nude male body session 3! Lets start this tutorial with a warning. This post is about Nude Photography and does cover a topic that some may find offensive
If you think you’ll be offended by this post we do invite you to skip it. This is a topic many of our readers are interested in so we feel it is relevant. We do understand that it is not everyone’s cup of tea. I don’t think that photos of a nude male body presented in this way are offensive. However, I do accept that some people might disagree.
This is one of black and white photos of nude male body showing importance of lighting. Controlling lighting also means controlling the shadow. Shadow is much more telling in black and white photography. There will be some color photos on a nude male body presented in this post. Just to demonstrate how different things look presented by different techniques.
My classical Black and White Male Nude Photography is a reflection on masculinity. It is aesthetic quality and the condition of men is the source of my exploratory processes. Bodies of naked men, on their own, most of them without a face, structures and volumes so contrasting that the flesh itself inscribes the dynamics of the shades. Shot after shot, strength, softness, fragility, tensions… mingle with each other… homoerotic impression…
What do this display of power, these features gained and maintained with effort conceal? I have chosen models adorned with a codified manliness in order to try and extract signals buried beneath the mass of appearances.
Whether you’re a professional photographer shooting on a top-of-the-line Canon, Sony, or Nikon DSLR, or a hobbyist snapping away on a smartphone, it’s essential to learn how to identify and frame great portraits and scenes. Whether you’re shooting black and white portrait photography or black and white landscape photography, some specific rules apply.
Look for images that provide high contrast
Think of a portrait set against a shaded background or dark hills against a bright sky. Such subject matter offers a notable contrast between light and dark. Those contrasts will shine through in a stunning black and white photograph.
