Fine art nude photography is a genre of fine-art photography which depicts the nude human body with an emphasis on form, composition , emotional content, and other aesthetic qualities. The nude has been a prominent subject of photography since its invention, and played an important role in establishing photography as a fine art medium. The distinction between fine art photography and other subgenres is not absolute, but there are certain defining characteristics. Erotic interest, although often present, is secondary,  which distinguishes art photography from both glamour photography , which focuses on showing the subject of the photograph in the most attractive way, and pornographic photography , which has the primary purpose of sexually arousing the viewer. Fine art photographs are also not taken to serve any journalistic, scientific, or other practical purpose. The distinction between these is not always clear, and photographers, as with other artists, tend to make their own case in characterizing their work,    though the viewer may have a different assessment. The nude remains a controversial subject in all media, but more so with photography due to its inherent realism.

I was definitely taking the "Tough love" approach because I've read countless times on this and other boards, how Mormons claimed that they were cool with their SO not being Mormon, and that they weren't, themselves, orthodox. She went to BYU and did a 2 year mission, but since she was a girl she got to have a car instead of a bicycle. I can relate to this post. He then proceeded to beat the shit out of her for a decade. I would never ever choose a different path. See to it that she is aware of your plan, so you both can properly dress. I married a recent convert girl в she may as well have been a nonmember в and less than a year later we got an annulment. She's such a martyr and a great person for doing this.
