"Classic Nude" Look

Classic Nude Photography with Dan Hostettler

Your rating: None Average: 5 (2 votes)


Classic/Fine art nude photography depicts the nude human body with an emphasis on form, composition, emotional content, and other aesthetic qualities. The distinction between fine art photography and other sub-genres is not absolute, but there are certain defining characteristics.

The nude figure becomes part of the overall composition and the aim is not to focus on the model’s nudity itself in a voyeuristic or alluring way but rather on her turning into an appealing but unagitated element of the scene. The model is not sexualized or arousing.

Art Nudes in a studio-setting often focuses on the human form as a study, from purely anatomical to abstract to compositional. On location, the nude figure is placed in a carefully selected (sometimes unusual) environment and in context as juxtaposition.
