I just have to laugh...of COURSE she meant harm. Tell what other motive is there for saying what she said. There is NONE...She said some people say the model is a man. A snickering, immature response and I tossed it back at her...showing her how it felt. That neither makes me a dick nor full of shit. You're the ridiculous asshole in all of tis..defending the person who made the initial insult. Maybe YOU should look in the mirror and perhaps learn that when someone insults someone without justification, you should defend the insulted, not the insultor. Nice hypocrisy on your part too...for the block..LOL. Like I didn't know you'd do that.
I am sorry for most of the bad things that were said above. As someone has said: it is not an amazing photo but it is well done. And to the one who things that anybody with a camera and a few lights can do good photos I have to say my friend you don't know a thing about photography.
Sure you can take a picture of a "woman" with a 14-year old boyīs body and breastimplants, and call it beautiful, but the day you take beautiful pictures of a wrinkly 80-year old or a simple object like a childīs teddybear, thatīs the day Iīll be impressed. Why should everything have to be about youthfulness and "hot bodies"? Isnīt there more to life than just sex? I sincerly hope you can find a bigger purpose in your existence someday.
Before jabbing shock-factor at the deviation and calling someone out for a picture of a nude woman consider this: erotic nude art is still art.
While it may not be your thing, it may come off as aesthetically pleasing for someone else. There are an endless number of motivations behind work such as this; some I would disagree with for being repulsive, others that I can look at and say "I understand this." Any respectable artist would know when to determine if their work was art or smut.
For all we know, this could be the artist's passion: admiration of youthful images of beauty. There's nothing wrong with that in the least. Youth doesn't last forever. I'm not even 21 and I've accepted that one day I'm going to grow old [and possibly bitter knowing myself]. So why can't we capture ourselves while we're young, while we still can?
