This morning, I saw the following video interview with a photographer who does “erotic photography”:
The comment that caught my attention was this:
There are times when I am shooting and I have a camera and I get home and I start editing the pictures and I’m like ‘wow, that was really hot. I can’t believe I was there!’
When you’re shooting a fine art nude or erotic photography session, you have to have your mind fully on the task at hand; to get good, professional results, you have to be all-business in both your approach to the session and your interaction with the model.
It’s only afterward–when you’re editing the photos–that you can finally let your professional “guard” down and let in the emotions and sensations that would normally accompany such a social situation, at least a little bit…:-).
