Daily Deviation

Given 2013-01-29
athletic male - light and dark by ~artdibujar I love the bands of shadow and how they contrast the diagonal line of his body. ( Featured by Nyx-Valentine )

If this had been a woman the men on here freaking out would be leaving far more...'beautiful' comments.

Anyway, I'm not a photographer so I don't know everything that goes into taking a photo like this, but I'll assume it's more than just snapping at random times. I'm sure there's a scene set up to get the shadow and lighting exactly how you want it, and working with a living model can't be as simple as people think it is.

With that all in mind, I like this. I wouldn't hang it in my house or anything, but I can see it in an art/photography magazine or something of that nature. It's very nicely done, and I don't know if there was a window or something, but I can even picture this being taken during a rainstorm (I see streaks on his skin like the shadow of rain falling against a window). So it's an imaginative image too, if you look and actually think about the composition of all the pieces that made this photo.

I walked past naked self in the mirror. Maybe I'll take a picture next time, so I can get featured as the Daily Deviation.

I don't care about the "mature content," for the record...
I just don't understand how taking a picture of a naked person, whether male or female, is art. Normally I just pass by it when I come across something of the sort, but I don't understand how taking a picture with a dude and his schlong gets under the Daily Deviations.

Call me weird for thinking that art is more than taking pictures of good-looking naked people.

Well, pornographers make a lot of money from it, so hey, guess it can't be that bad of a gig.

Nudity in art, in all it's forms, has been around for a very, very long time. Just because you don't feel this is artistic doesn't make it so. If you don't like it, please, by all means, click your back button, and move on with your life, rather than leaving rude comments.

Yea, as sculptures, drawings, writings, etc. Taking a picture of a naked person though... That's just taking a picture of a naked person :/ Unless it's meant for pornographic means... then it's just a pornographic photo.

You should read up on "what is pornography", because this is a fine art nude. And there is a big difference. However, I reiterate, no one is forcing you to view this content, and I have given you an option to make sure you do not do so. Please make use of it, and refrain from leaving rude comments in the future, or you might find an artist reporting you for harassment.

This!

I'd love to see Devilomsorgar compose something with this much light and dark contrast, and then proceed to say, 'IT'S NOT ART.' Because believe it or not, these kinds of things are very hard to capture.

Especially with dark skin, or super light skin - it takes a certain level of high technical ability to pull this off, and then to -still- turn it into something artistic, rather than a technical study. But some people just don't see things that way, which is ok, but they should just go elsewhere, you know?

Good idea with the shadow stripes but there is something casting an extra shadow out of the upper stripe and it looks a bit like the chest is deformed somehow...

...his penis kinda looks like an elephant's trunk...not it the sense that its that long, but rather the shape, also he is very well groomed but not overly so...his hand looks a little weird though and his nails are so perfect i wonder where he gets them done...
