Been shooting professionally and full time for 6 years now. I'm more in the wedding and portraits fields - haven't gotten into glamour yet but have always admired the artistic aspects of it. I'm a bit old fashioned and strive to abstain from sensual imagery mainly because faithfulness and marriage and well, reasoning not relatable to many people this day and age. Anyhow, that background is relevant because I'm not sure how to break past the whole nudity issue in my photography amidst some bashfulness on my part. I've had clients willing to do nudity (infant sessions, maternity) but have been successful at covering up my clients with the right materials and clothing without being too revealing but still appearing nude (haven't seen a nipple in my studio yet LOL) In college we had nude models pose for us and it was always extremely awkward for most 1st year students. I just don't know how it's possible to not get too excited with a nude female subject. My wife can get me tongue tied with the right lingerie on, so factor in a younger, hair-styled model in a provocative pose - I don't know you guys do it and keep your cameras steady. Obviously you must get used to it especially once you're in the zone, but I guess the advise I'm looking for has more to do with dealing with the first time (photographer's) and nerves or bashfulness and how to make the model comfortable enough, especially not to detect any natural male anticipation to see them in the raw.
I have access to friends and friends of friends, young girls willing to take it off for my camera which I'd love to get into artistically and build up my portfolio, but haven't really put one of these sessions on my calendar yet because I'm not sure how on earth to not become a giddy high school boy once all those assets are out in the open to the delight of my eyes LOL
