18SX: Nude photos

Was having a discussion with fellow photographer WSPang yesterday about shooting creatively with lighting and somehow the topic turned to this. Since we are young photographers who push our art to the ...er....limits of creativity, I thought of giving this a shot. Please be warned, anyone under 18, you know what to do ah. After all nude photography is a very common art practiced and appreciated by many. If you are not easily offended, carry on. If yes, you have a choice not to see ok?

So you're still here eh...Hehe. Ok I'll give you some insight to how I construct a shot. Well obviously we'll need a subject, so I'll volunteer for it this time. Next time anyone want model for me don't hesitate to let me know. We'll also need something avantgarde...something abstract, beautiful and complicated, yet appealing to art lovers. So I've decided to go for a shot of the family jewels - ball and stick. If you have no idea what I'm talking about...maybe you shouldn't be here. Heheh


Now on to the technicalities. I want to show something, yet not too much. So I've decided to shoot in the dark (also helps a lot coz my neighbors behind can see what I do very clearly wan). Based on previous shots I've had with a strobe in the dark, I guess 1/20 seconds is a good enough shutter speed and an aperture of f/9 was chosen to give it enough details. I placed an off camera flash at 1/128th power as well 45 degrees to one side and set the timer. The first shot was underexposed so the aperture was opened up to f/7.1. Still with me?

On the next shot, I got the results I was looking for. So want to see how my nude photo turned out? Heheh...scroll down.

Heheh. Ok o not?

Actually its from a fruit called 'tarap' that was given to me by one of my colleagues. It looks like a jackfruit yet tastes different. So, you disappointed or relieved?
