There is something magical about how the nude female body compliments the outdoors and it’s elements. This lovely intimate photoshoot was no exception. The lines and shapes of her body, the power of the sun, the scenery of the farm and texture of the barn. All going together as a jigsaw puzzle would, as long as a competent person is there to put it all together. We shall begin with photos featuring the outdoor nude photoshoot on the farm!
A young man in the military had contacted me saying he was nearing overseas deployment for the better part of a year. So, he wanted to take some precious memories from home to keep his spirits up and keep him motivated. And of course super duper motivated to count the days until he returns home! Some lovely artistic nude and implied nude photography of the special lady in his life would be that care package we send him off with!!
A friend of mine was so gracious to let us use their farm for this photoshoot. The day was fairly chilly but the sun helped. The harshest sun of the day is between 10 AM and 2 PM and we were in the middle of it, but I used that as a lighting challenge, it paid off. This young lady was a trooper and had fun with it knowing how much it means to her husband!
All natural light here, turning the body and using very high shutter speeds and small apertures to expose for highlights….and create shadows! Moody bodyscapes are nice for the artistic and mystique factors!
It was nice working with this lovely couple! Thank you to her for being willing to let me share the shoot with my audience. And thank you to him for his service. Please return home soon and safely! I hope these (and more not pictured here) keep you happy while serving! I hope all of you have enjoyed this Outdoor nude photoshoot on the farm.
I began talking with this adventurous client about doing a personalized intimate photoshoot at the lake. Going to the lake and boating / camping on the lake and it’s islands is a big part of her life. So, she wanted to commemorate that aspect of her life, as she is definitely nature’s child. So, with a little bit of back and forth inspiration, we planned to do some early morning artistic nudes at the lake!
It was a very early morning in early October, the weather was lovely. I enjoyed a nice ride to the location with the windows down listening to Third Eye Blind, to somehow inspire me to fully wake up. The stereotypical artist who hates morning is reality I’m afraid. But this was the best time before the riffraff populates the lake. It was a perfect day to enjoy some lovely nudes in nature, as the sun was starting to warm the day up moderately, and the Summer vibe was still there. By the time we hit the lake with her captain on pontoon boat, I felt energized by the water and the feeling of freedom in nature. I also forgot how much I hate morning, LOL. We started off at the cliffs which make up one of the islands. Except a couple remote fishermen, the lake was desolate.
There was a rusty chain tied to the cedar tree growing on the rocks, so of course we had to do something dark and grim, more conceptual art. You’re welcome.
We moved to this island, there was no one around. Though there was evidence of past campfires and cookouts, the island was ours for these moments. I wonder if they had ever been used in this way. She was all about being nude in nature and the lake definitely provided all of us some inspiration.
This last one reminds me of a flower child / hippie from the 1960’s or 70’s just becoming one with the elements, I really liked the mood and vibe. I hope you’ve enjoyed these artistic nudes at the lake.
I recently had the pleasure of working with a local nude model to help her update her portfolio, as well as me updating this site. Many clients wish to keep their sessions private and of course I assure discretion for them. It’s occasions like this that help me keep my own portfolio fresh. We went to an abandoned hotel property that is pretty well secluded and up on a hill. I did a quick look through to make sure there weren’t any vagrants hanging out there, which sometimes goes with the territory when working in abandoned locations….but the reward is so worth it! Outdoor nudes and abandoned location nude photography is awesome….the freedom of the outdoors and the sun, and the distress of the abandoned building with the contrast of the beautiful female body makes for perfect art.
Many clients and models feel more comfortable in the studio which is fine too, it’s easier to control light and it’s less lugging gear. But there is a liberation to the location nude photoshoots and I enjoy the challenge of lighting, and not falling into a comfort zone. I offer lingerie, as well as implied nude, or full nude photoshoots in studio or on location in Nashville and beyond. This is a more personalized approach to nude and boudoir photography than shooting someone on the same bad or chaise lounge that everyone gets. Book your own personal photoshoot in time for Christmas or Valentines Day. Prints as well as personalized albums available, please inquire about turnaround times for these wonderful heirlooms 🙂
For the photography geeks, I shot towards the sun for a little lens haze and flare, and backlighting. Subject lit with off camera Elinchrom Quadra with 17″ beauty dish at full power, and used a variable neutral density filter on my Canon 24-70 lens. I set it at 2 stops so I would get a better background contrast and controlled backlighting, loved the results! Here are the outdoor photos from this wonderful shoot, thanks Eeva for a great shoot! May these bring you success marketing yourself as a local and traveling nude model 🙂 Hope you enjoy, the next look from this shoot is coming soon! Stay tuned and tell others 🙂
