Back in 2004, I was posting heavily on The New Nude, a site which features natural nudes; nudes which contain little if any makeup, in natural locations such as forests, waterfalls, streams and any other “natural” location.
Shortly after I joined the site, Eolake Stobblehouse published a book called “Natural Beauties,” which contained the best of the best of these natural nudes from Domai.com.
The photo above was our first attempt at creating a “natural nude.” It is very similar to the cover photo of Natural Beauties. This is not a coincidence. Sharon and I used to start off mimicking an existing work and then changing it up to make it our own.
If you can, pick up a copy of Natural Beauties. It is a beautiful book with very little text, just pretty nudes.
