Bare Breast Photography
Don’t Make A Boob Of Yourself
Playboy model Ashley demonstrates an S-curve pose that brings out the C-shape of the breasts.
My previous photoblog article about “buttocks” entailed about 28 synonyms of the word in a humorous post and unfortunately, I can’t think of but (no pun intended) a few synonyms when it comes to describing breasts, and some of those are considered, for lack of better words, untactful slang. While women are sensitive to their backsides, I’ve found in my glamour, beauty and nude photography, they are even more sensitive toward their breasts, perhaps, besides societal programming, because breasts are closer to our faces and through eye contact, we can interpret body language instantly.
While I personally think staring at a women’s breasts is not gentlemanly, I can’t say, like any man, that I’ve never looked twice at a woman’s curves, especially as I was growing up, but in photography, I keep it professional. This approach is simple, always remind your subject that you are her photographer and she’s your subject, it’s not a male to female shoot.
If you keep this mentality in tact, especially if you’re a male photographer, it will keep you focused at creating images and not thinking like most typical males—yes, I can stereotype based on my own personal experience as “self” and when watching other men I’ve known—a man looking at breasts is not governed by social class—we all do it at one point in our lives and if anyone thinks that’s a poor statement, well get it over it, it happens, don’t be a hypocrite.
