    Re: Nude

    (wait until someone depicts the nude in 3D!)
    Nudes were among the very first stereo views. I don't know if pornography exists except as a popular art form, like horror films, or Hip Hop music, and much of what I see offered as art or pornography are just similarly tasteless.

    I read a succinct explanation of the difference between art and porn recently - if you don't want to look at it after masturbating, then it's porn.

    Re: Nude

    Read the book "Pornography and the Law" by Phyllis & Eberhard Kronhausen. It spends a great deal of time discussing the difference between 'obscenity' and 'erotic realism'. Art would fall under realism. Most of the arguments based around text transfers to visual media. Also read "The Nude" by Kenneth Clark to understand the history behind ideal form and why we want to have certain poses and ideals in the image. Could name others too, but after those two your prejudices may change.

    I leave the digital work for the urologists and proctologists.

    Art and porn are not mutually exclusive. Porn is merely a form of commercial photography. We have car porn, jewelry porn, computer gadget porn, and nekkid people porn etc.
    Some of it is done artistically.

    Re: Nude

    OK here's a story with a moral:
    driving through Michigan, I passed by a large billboard ad for a local department store that had used Delacroix's "Liberty Leading the People" painting. Except there was something wrong with it. I looked more carefully, and they had covered up the errant breast of Liberty. So, yes, to some people, what is acknowledged art is deemed porn. Note that there are tits and asses painted all over the Sistine Chapel. Apparently, the same people are more uptight than the freaking Pope. Don't just assume that the blue-noses recognize ANY form of nudity as art.

    Few weeks ago, I intended to shoot some LF nude shots, unfortunately, I forgot the film box. So I had to shoot MF instead of LF.

    I will try again with my 4x5 or 5x7.
