When it comes to nude photography, respect and decorum are the words of the day. Even for professional models that are used to working nude in front of the camera, you certainly don’t want to offend or embarrass them, or come across as just plain creepy.
So if you’re ever asked to assist on a nude shoot, or even if you’re the photographer, this video from Japanese Neko TV shows us how one absolutely should not act on such a shoot. Don’t be like this guy.
For a start, when your subject disrobes, this is definitely not how your face should express reaction. Well, unless you’re Sid James.
And if you’re not the photographer, certainly don’t bring your camera out in the middle of a shoot to grab a few snaps of your own!
I have seen one or two of these behaviours before from the occasional first time assistant, and I’ve had no problem sending them home when they got out of line, so if you are asked to assist on a nude or any other type of shoot, be courteous, be professional, and be respectful to everybody else involved, especially the subject of the photographs!
Have you experienced behaviour like this on your shoots, either as the subject, assistant or photographer? How was it dealt with, if at all? Let us know in the comments.
