I made a fun photo of a nude male runner on the beach. A few days after this photo was made, my assistant answered the phone and told me that my “Nude Dude” was calling and to pick up. The photo has since been referred to as the “Nude Dude.” The photograph is loved by both men and women alike. I’ve had so many hits from all over the world on our website. A magazine used it as a double truck spread and what a reaction it got! It also helped with sales of course. What makes this a special photograph? Possibly because of the concept and the idea of the photo and that it’s a little unusual. It has a clean, simple, uncluttered background, a pleasing blue color and my subject is a good looking male with a great physique.
The photo is a good example of a pan or panning with a camera. To do this you choose a slow shutter speed to pick up movement (shutter speed depends on variety of factors such as how fast subject is moving and what kind of effect you’d like to achieve) You pan or move your body in a fluid motion following the action of your subject and a little beyond.
I lost touch with the model a while ago, so Frankie if you’re out there I hope you’re doing well. Everybody loves the photo of you.
