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.
Video & Music by Linden Hudson. Who is Linden Hudson? ++
CLASSICBANDS DOT COM said: “According to former roadie David Blayney in his book SHARP DRESSED MEN: sound engineer Linden Hudson co-wrote much of the material on the ZZ Top ELIMINATOR album.”
(Linden never received credit or monies for his work on this huge, multi-platinum, grammy nominated record album) ++
LICKLIBRARY DOT COM (in 2013) ZZ TOP'S BILLY GIBBONS SAID: “the Eliminator sessions in 1983 were guided largely by another one of our associates, Linden Hudson, a gifted engineer, during the development of those compositions.” (end quote) (Gibbons admits these facts after 30 years, but offers Linden no apology or reparations for lack of credits/monies) ++
MUSICRADAR DOT COM (in 2013): Journalist Joe Bosso interviewed Billy Gibbons (ZZ Top guitarist). Gibbons broke 30 years of silence about Linden Hudson introducing synthesizers into ZZ Top's sound. Gibbons said: “This was a really interesting turning point. We had befriended somebody who would become an influential associate, a guy named Linden Hudson. He was a gifted songwriter and had production skills that were leading the pack at times. He brought some elements to the forefront that helped reshape what ZZ Top were doing, starting in the studio and eventually to the live stage. Linden had no fear and was eager to experiment in ways that would frighten most bands. But we followed suit, and the synthesizers started to show up on record.”

Linden tells his story 30 years later. He's still living, but Linden is like a ghost returning to haunt Billy Gibbons. The internet made that possible. Maybe it's karma? Oh well, shit happens (right Billy?). ++
This project was made at home on laptop pc. It's home-made, it's true indie, made just for fun.
This video is not porn, but is intended as art, a show of beauty. In the USA we are promised free artistic expression.
You are free as well, free to watch this, or free not to watch this. Peace.
