Genre how photographs can highlight much more

Genre 01: Fine arts nude photography/boudoir photography Series: UntitledFine art nude photography or can be called as boudoir photography is a genre of photography where the human body is photographed without the protective cover of clothes to evoke real emotions. The genre requires a refined taste along with sophisticated concepts. Black and white have always played a huge role in the industry of fine arts nude photography. Whether it be, eminent photographers like Helmut Newton, Robert Mapplethorpe, or current new age photographers like Milosz Wozaczynski, Stefano Brunesci use this class trick of editing the photos black and white in order to bring some mysteriousness in the photo and also to evoke a sense of realness in them.Another aspect that is gaining popularity is the natural look in the photographs. Viewers nowadays crave for natural photos, free movements, and raw emotions over the staged ones with pretentious expressions and heavy makeup.Although the famous photographers of this genre, such as Larry Woodmann, Jan Scholz, Cindy Johnson, have always preferred natural light and intimate locations, usage of flash has been making its ground now. Photographers like Andreas H. Bitesnich or Lindsay Adler have started the trend of using flash in creative ways to stir up the imagination of the viewer with edgy photos. They believe to use the flash to create hard shadows and moody effects. One can even use soft flattering light by bouncing the light to show the curves or physique of the subject.My interest in exploring fine arts nude photography has come from the passion that I have for the human body. And in this series, I have clubbed the same with the technique of long exposure.I intend to capture the real essence by portraying the genuine emotions of the subject (not staged), whether be it people, things or landscape.With the current series of photographs, I tried to photograph my subject without clothes, trying to captivate the viewers with the fragility and the vulnerability. While working on this project I discovered how photographs can highlight much more than a superficial depiction of a human body covered under clothes.I chose to work with the natural light for this shoot, because the set up was at home and to make it very intimate and natural, I used as less equipment as possible. Also one can play a lot of moods with natural light.My subject is a friend of mine, and I chose to work with her because of the comfortability that we share. We shot in the subject’s most comfortable space, i.e. her bedroom.Sources:1. Jan Scholz – https://www.janscholz.com (A) at home – https://www.janscholz.com/athome(B) Blog – http://blog.micmojo.com2.
