Question Artistic Nude & Glamour Photography....

WARNING: Artistic Nude & Glamour content discussed in this post...

Has this style of photography ever won photo of the week / month?

I was admiring some photos from Simon Revill under the title Shelton Shoot and this had me thinking about how many photos of the week / month that I have seen from this category.

I viewed many of the previous well deserving photographs in the photo of the week category, however; I could not find a photograph that fits into the Artistic Nude & Glamour category for some reason?

While I am in no way trying to encourage the judges to consider Simons photos for the photo of the week / month category , I thought that I should leave this discussion open to others...

Thanks for reading this.

Cheers
Dean .

Re: Artistic Nude & Glamour Photography....

Firstly bear in mind that POTW is selected from photographs posted in the Member's Gallery from the previous seven days. It is not selected from the Photography Feedback Forums. Secondly, some weeks there are none in the qualifying period.

Glamour and nude images are not precluded but we do have to be careful since winning shots from POTW and Fortnightly Challenges are displayed in the sidebar and the Home Page. We are conscious that some of our visitors may be young and also that not all our members necessarily see Glamour and Nude in the same light as you might. Believe me when I say that the whole issue of G & N is sensitive and underwent a deal of discussion, by the crew, before being allowed. It also goes that if the crew feels that an image is verging on titillation or porn then the shots would be pulled.

Re: Artistic Nude & Glamour Photography....

There is always somebody who objects to G & N photography however good the pictures are, I have been on some forums where the ladies want more male model pics and then that starts all sorts of arguments so it always best to stick to traditional stuff in the comps, I have seen Simon Revill's Shelton Shoot and his pictures are outstanding if he put one of these pics in each fortnight he would win every round! Well I have said my two penneth!

Re: Artistic Nude & Glamour Photography....

Thank you for replying to my questions, I have read them with great interest.

This is how I see the issue after reading a few replies...

If there is an issue with youngsters viewing Artistic Nude and Glamour images, then perhaps Pixalo could consider providing a facility where only members are allowed to log into this category after proving their age or at least by clicking a box that says that they are over the age of eighteen?

I understand the complexities of the issue and I agree with the thought and discussion that has been put into this category by the Pixalo Crew, however; I also feel that the Pixalo staff are responsible for controlling / authorizing the content of this category and I entrust that they will do their best to ensure that images are tasteful as explained by stepheno...

If there is any doubt, I feel you may need some kind of disclaimer to identify that the images are not intended to be viewed by people under the age of eighteen and that there may be nude content...

As far as the photo of the week being displayed on the sidebar of the Home Page, perhaps an icon explaining that the FOTW image is Artistic Nude or Glamour could be used with a link to either the disclaimer or a log in screen for members - (members may not need a log in section as most members initially log in with a Username or Password anyway). This way the chances of offending anyone may be greatly reduced?

Thank you for your comments, I really appreciate it.

Cheers
Dean .

By members Galleries you mean just pictures uploaded to member galleries category, or do images uploaded to categories like Abstract, Landscape, Macro, MonoChrome, People, Etc. also count ?

that's what I thought but when stephen mentioned Members Gallery and when you upload there is a members gallery category, it just threw me off track.

Re: Artistic Nude & Glamour Photography....

for G & N i am one of these people that gets a little frustrated at these shots sometimes, I dont mind nude if it adds to an image but the majority of nude are there to show off boobs and bums NOT to add anything to the shot. Of course a man is going to say thats nonsense but if its just about form and shape etc then why is it that its usually only female models and rarely male models?

To me less is more and implied nudity is far far nicer and more tasteful than any other kind, Im no prude byt why on earth would i want to look at another womans bum and boobs for goodness sake, ?

Pictures of naked women are all about sex, unless they appear in surgical journals. Pictures of naked men, ditto. It's crass hypocrisy to claim otherwise but a lot of people do so, probably because they've been taught that sex is dirty. No it isn't, but too much, or in the wrong context, is annoying in the same way that cigarette smoke is to a non-smoker.

For myself, I can find as much tit and bum as I like, with a Google search, so I agree with Fiona (if I'm not putting words into her mouth) that Pixalo should consider becoming a smut free zone.

I agree. There is no smut on here. If anyone considers the artisitic nude category on here to be smut, then I would consider them to be complete prudes! The category is artistic nude. There are no images on there worse than a Rubens or a Botticelli, and they are considered great art.
Is Pixalo to become the Mary Whitehouse photography approved website?. If you dont wish to view it, then simply dont look at the category! Self censorship is a very simple option.

Hang on there! That's just a bit like a smoker claiming that anyone who objects to their smoking in the same room is a "spoil sport control freak". Myself, I like a good bit of smut as much as the next pervert but I also understand that others have different views.

By the way, I class Peter and Sandro as purveyors of a very high class of smut but Rubens would be in trouble with the Social Services department over "The Judgement of Paris". As for Botticelli's "Primavera", well...

Heheheh I take your point! I still think though that if people have no interest in the artisitic nude or glamour side of photography, then just dont check out that section. Simples!
