I do . . . stuff. I like to create things. I used to draw, but now I mainly do photography. I photograph any subject that catches my fancy. Lately, I've been focused on fine art nudes. But that's not all I do with a camera. I'd actually like to make a living with a camera, but we'll see how it goes. I might be a sculptor, tomorrow, for all I know.
If you're not familiar with me (which I suspect is the case if you're reading this), I absolutely LOATHE the DeviantArt watermark. On principle, I don't fave or comment on any deviation that uses it. It's the only way I know how to protest against it.

I'm not sure if I should even be posting this. It's just a thought whirling through my head, and I'm not sure if it's fully-formed.
Running head: NUDITY, AND PERCEPTIONS OF
First off, If I was actually using AMA format, I would have started with the running head, and then my introduction would have been on the second page . . . yada yada. Nevermind.
For anyone thinking I have an obsession with this issue, I do. It's kind of become my thing. The purpose of why I'm saying this now is rude comments that were recently said toward one of my models. Don't do that. You don't want to see me when I'm angry.
Yes, I am a sexual being. Sometimes, I do see a model and think, "Holy shit! Wow! Hubba-hubba!" And start whacking myself in the head with a mallet like a cartoon character. That's fine. If we didn't do that, the human race would cease to exist. Do I need to let her know that? No.
But it's just a body. And I don't want minimize that. The human body is my favorite subject as a photographer. But they aren't defined by sexuality. WE aren't defined by sexuality. We also aren't defined by our bodies.
Bodies are beautiful.
Yeah, I like nudity, because I like the human body. Sex is the icing on the cake.
