    i would go with art, there is enough baground and whatnot to make you look around the frame. but idnt if its just me, but it almost looks like she was shotoshopped into that image....something just doesnt look right to me.

    Let's put it this way...if a girl is spreading her legs out like that or any other compromising position, then it's porn.

    Nude art is a celebration of the human body that emphasizes form, not direct attention to the genitals.

    and most importantly, in porn vs art...since porn is the subject:


    Larry Sultan


    any great portrait photographers nudes will/can/are considered artistic. Amateur usually is considered porn, but no one really cares because its not very interesting to start with.

    for the photo up top, the hiding of the breasts is the only real thing that makes it more "porn" to me. Artistic nudes should be full blown, you can have the subject connecting with the viewer or the scene/shapes connecting with the viewer. You have the woman connecting with the viewer more than the entire scene, which is fine- but i feel she is too conscious of her tits, she looks awkward holding them. I dont' know...i forgot this photographers name but he ONLY shot nudes of like 12-15 year old girls and it basically grossed me out. I'm in the library reading a 100 page book, each page is a naked teenager and I felt strange...just society deems it so.


    I would put it in erotic art.


    You can also see shit like amand leapor or wtfever "her" name is and other fucking in david lachappelles work and its considered art...so its really just whatever society deems, the majority...if the artists consider you artistic then you are good to go, look at crumb and all the shit he had to take for his "pornographic" (now considered great by some, a real artist) work.

    i'm also really tired and not sure where i am





    "spread your legs" is a good thing to say, i like that a lot about the photo. for others never ask "Can you remove your bra?/can you please remove your panties" Just straight up tell them to "remove your underwear".

    I really like the location of the photo but in some ways don't like the pose? Did you get any other shots? :)

    personally im not a huge fan of artistic nude shots. and lately it seems like there is no difference between porn and art [unless its full on cooter!] shit, the amount of blatant -look at my picture!! titties] "artistic nude" shots on DeviantArt almost sicken me [and im no prude by any means]. it just gets to the point where it is annoying.

    hell while im on the subject. tv and movies are getting to be the same way. sometimes its just like...what happened to the story...i got porn in the other room, now i want story!

    EXACTLY!!!!! half these "photographers" on that site look like they are taking these shots with a simple P&S camera, there is no art behind it.

    I get angry when I see people taking nude photos and passing it off as art, ive seen nude art done tastefully, but with maxim and the copycats so many people try to pass that style photography with nudity as art.

    I like the use of natural lighting and shadows to make the shot more artistic, rather than using arms and other objects to cover up body parts. The shot above would be something you'd see on teenymodels18.com (not a real link, so don't try lol)
