I managed to feel me… really me
LEARN MORE ABOUT THE PROJECT
I am an amateur photographer and I have long wanted to take nude photos…However, I am a very modest person and I have a lot of scruples about nudity; whether it was mine or that of others… But the desire to experience the model prevailed and I decided to come and pose for Un Anonyme Nu Dans Le Salon, ignoring my modesty and going beyond in order to understand and learn from this photographic experience.
The hardest part was registering on the site, but once the email was sent, it was a form of relief that set in. Having already seen other photographs, and finding the project magnificent, I did not regret a single moment.
As for the photo session, everything was simple: as soon as I met the photographer, many of my apprehensions disappeared; He explained to me the course of the session, answered my questions. What surprised me the most was the total absence of judgment and comments on his part, he is totally neutral and that made things much easier for me. Thanks to the photographer, I managed to feel like me… really me. A real feeling of freedom during the photo shoot, following the photographer’s requests quickly became natural.
In the end I will not have chosen the same image as the photographer but I preferred to let him choose, the vision of the other being for me very important in this process, to go to the end. This experience is added to the others and participates in making me who I am.
I showed the photo to several of my acquaintances, many of them found it very beautiful. I will buy my photograph. However, I did not try to convince anyone to pose, I explained to people my approach and I let everyone decide.
