Church's Art - 101
Tour this Favourites Gallery page and you'll get a tutorial in taking great photos -- not just nudes, but every aspect of the art-form. Scott Church does more with a camera than anyone I've seen (excepting a very few) in so many areas. It makes me want to grab my Canon, enlist some models and try to emulate his work!
I made this a separate page for his photographs, so as not to overwhelm the other favourites I've put here. The words "professional photographer" don't do him justice. Though he features a lot of nudes, pay attention to the settings (and setups) in which he puts them. His sense of lighting, scene, emotion and story are amazing, no matter the subject! I don't like all his work (heck, half his titles baffle me!), but that's okay -- no one should.
One of the things that drew me to his work is the fact he DOES the shots I've often wanted to do, but lacked the time or the model. In reading his captions, I realized he thinks the same way. Perhaps I'll have the opportunity to attend one of his workshops someday.
