If you think of triple-X magazines, when nude photography is mentioned, you may be looking for a different site. Nude photography is very popular worldwide, but it is more of an artistic style. Before you jump feet first into this art form you should know what type of photographs you want to take. Everybody has an opinion and one person's idea of art maybe another person's idea of pornography. Feel free to take the type of photographs you like, but beware of your local laws. Also feel free to experiment as there are numerous ways to photograph nudes.
It's always a good idea to try something new and different in photography and this is a good area to experiment. You can try assorted colors, black and white, textures, shapes, backgrounds, forms, lighting and props. You can also try different poses and locations or focus on just one area of the body, such as the hands or torso, etc. If you are shooting outdoors try to find a remote or private location. Take the weather conditions and other elements into consideration. If you are using a model, sweating or freezing may not be what you are looking for in your shot. You can also try underwater nude photography if you have the right equipment.
