Alright. Let's talk about this last shot. It's got an area of the female body that seems to cause a bunch of controversy. I posted this image to Instagram and while I got a HUGE (for me) amount of likes and comments letting me know that people were enjoying the image, I also had a rather large group of people reach out to me either through DM or other means to let me know that they strongly disliked the image and they didn't think it should be posted. As far as threatening to report my account to Instagram. I would like to talk about this here and put my perspective out there.
I strange as it is to admit, I am an artist. Yes, this image depicts the female form. I have said it many times and I will say it again, I do not photograph nudity for the sake of nudity nor will I take a picture for the sole purpose of seducing the viewers. When I decided to do this shoot, I had only the intention of practicing my art and becoming more of an expert in lighting.
While I respect everyone's opinion and want everyone to be comfortable, I hope that all those made uncomfortable by this image can see it for what it is; art.
For everyone else, thank you for your support! I really do love this image.
I am going to continue in my 52 Model Challenge, which will take me in many directions. I am excited to see were it takes me and love that many of you will go on this journey with me. Stay tuned.
