where do you get yours?
I want to enter a juried art show through the Kinsey institute, on erotica. Not having ever taken erotic shots before I was wondering if anyone had any ideas how I might be inspired.
Also if anyone is interested I can give you the info. It is for U.S. residents only though.

I look to see what sort of thing gets most clicks in EPZ !!! Grin









..........kidding!! ;o)

I am inspired by everything I see. If I don't think to myself, at least once a day, "that would make a good photo" - it's an unusual day. It's a thought which occurs to me, quite often, several times a day. That's not to say I actually take the photo(s) though.

Right. But in this case you have to see erotica!

Not clear whether this has to be about erotica (maybe PJ or emotive shots of a reportage or still life kind) or whether it has to be erotic photos. If the latter I'd suggest you find a woman and a camera and get started. I say woman because I've no idea how you'd do this with a male subject.
Wait - I'm getting an idea - ugh! that was horrible, I'd stick with a female.

On the other hand, I've somtimes wondered where my flower photos were going, and people who've looked have mentioned Mapplethorpe ...

Browse the galleries, if you see something you like, go to that persons portfolio and look at what they do and how they do it.

Because I haven't actually done as much stills photography as normal. At this time of year, I am as usual being badgered to do video work of various types. Jack of All Trades, that's me........................






........yeah, yeah - and the rest!!! ;o)

I didn't know badgers were involved in video as well.
Any recommendations ?
