Experienced model Sarah demonstrates a dozen poses. Begins with some warm-up shots, then art nudes. Live video spliced with black and white figure photographs by A. K. Nicholas. A possible training resource for both models and photographers. Sarah uses shifts in her weight, curves in her body, and gestures with her arms and hands to craft each pose.
Sarah's poses are used extensively in my books Exquisite Curves and True Confessions of Nude Photography.
This is a late-afternoon photo shoot with Hope, on a narrow stretch of beach. There were only two approaches to our location, with a river running behind us. We could see for a couple of miles in either direction. This meant we could see people approaching long before they could see that Hope was nude. We stopped and she covered up a few times to allow groups of people to pass.
