    i’m sorry but all i can think of is that song… “i know you like to think your sh*t don’t stink, but lean a little bit closer and see that roses really smell like boo boo boo…”

    also, very glad i waited to take a drink before i looked at that photo.

    I don’t care what you like stuffing up your butt, but don’t photograph it.

    the lady has a very pretty face and I am sure if she was in a pose that did not make her look like she has more extra skin then a rhino she would be very attractive.

    The fauxtog that took this should be ashamed. This poor woman is now subject to ridicule forever because of this photo.

    As a photographer we should take very seriously the fact that what we do can seriously damage someone’s self esteem if it is not done right. This was NOT done right.

    To the YANAP admin, before posting this you should have blurred the poor woman’s face.

    The worst part (other than the HORRIBLE idea) is the fact that the fauxtographer had this posted for the world to see. That is a private photo that the client most likely only intended for her (due to the veil I’d say husband) to see. What an invasion of her privacy. I know boudour photographers may need a portfolio, but NOT posted online. Thats one portfolio you personally meet with a potential client to show. What an ingnorant new crop of wannabees there are out there now.

      I’ve done some boudoir. Just starting out. I always post in a gallery with a password and no thumbnail. I let the client look at their images. I then ask if it would be OK if I use some for marketing and I always compensate them in the form of prints or digital images if they agree. I can’t imagine that this woman wanted this public, but then again, you never know. If she didn’t care, then good for her for having so much self-esteem. Me, personally? I would NEVER.

    • There are certain types of photographs that I would not post publicly without explicit approval from the client. This is one of them! Yeah, my contract states I own the copyright and may display images in my portfolio at any time, but there is a line to draw for what is ethical. I would never post a nude or nearly nude like this on my page due to it being a family-friendly site. On other notes, this woman has a pretty face, and I’m sure there would have been poses that would be much flattering for her body.

    after this goes viral, I hope that fauxtog has a signed model release…

      Why would he need a model release. The image isn’t used commercially.

      • kat says:

        It is if it’s displayed on a photographer’s website. That’s promotion for the photographer (for better or worse). All my clients sign a model release if they want a session preview on my blog. Otherwise, their images stay in a password protected gallery. Photographers have rights, and so do clients.

    I get why you posted it, it is horrible. You should think about how the poor woman is going to feel if she ever finds out that this is on this site. I’m sure it was taken with the intent to be private. I blame the photographer for putting it where it can be seen but you shouldn’t have made it worse. If she sees these comments she would be crushed.

    Love it. What’s not to like ? Pretty girl, flowers, flattering pose, soft lighting. What could go wrong? You could take this concept further and swap out the roses for say… a whole salami, dollar bills, leading brand toilet rolls, action figures. The possibilities are endless. I’m all over it ;-)

    I think the quality of this photo is nice. In focus, lovely lighting and a gorgeous model. So I see some skill, and that makes it even more WTF to see a line of roses tucked into her butt crack. Was that like some half-assed (hurr hurr) attempt at modesty or what?

    Does not compute.

    Well, at least the photographer didn’t fall into the trendy, Pinterest/Facebook trained, 24 year old mommies-with-cameras fad of chopping the head off and zooming in on the body. Could you imagine… “Here’s my boudoir portrait… oh, yes, it’s just roses and my crack. The photographer says that’s art!”

    I think this really highlights why people with a camera and lights are not always considered photographers. Equipment does not make a creative professional. While the photo itself may be technically sound, there was a serious lack of artistry involved. Please go back to the drawing board Fauxtographer.

    There are ways to shoot plus sized nudes/boudoir … this isn’t one of them. Making her arch her back like that so she can look up to the camera just accentuated the folds on her back … not very sexy and a very poor pose choice.
    It’s too bad too … she seems to have a lovely face.
