Artistic nude is controversial in photography, like all depiction of nudity in general. Many only perceive a sexual aspect, thus missing the natural beauty of the model, or the photographer’s work.
I insist on the word artistic: I only see beauty, and let disgruntled people heating up alone.
Women are among the most ravishing creations of nature, so why not celebrating them in their birthday suit, in which they are the most beautiful?
« Remove the colours, only emotion remains » : let’s try to check if this statement is true by exploring this gallery of female artistic nude photos in black and white.
You have to know that digital photos can’t be shot directly in black and white: the photographer has to « think » in black and white when he pushes the trigger, then he has to convert it later from colour to shades of grey.
It can happen that a (good) photo in colour will also be good in black and white: one has to digitally re-develop it while thinking about the best rendering in black and white this time. The result can be completely different from the original colour photo.
