Even your most snobbish art freak will take a peek at the crotch shot first.
You would think that photographers of nudes would have seen enough crotches to last a lifetime. You would think they would have little interest in homing in on a crotch shot by another photographer of a model they don't even know, but they will.
Almost spooky and a little bit scary.
And I know of photographers that collect these images. Images other photographers have taken. They add them to their secret file of crotch shots they have hidden in their computer where a browsing wife would never look. Pictures! Like high school boys hiding a Playboy magazine in lawn mower shed at the back of the yard. Adults!
That said, I enjoy looking at the not so often seen parts of the female body as much as the next man. I don't collect them however, except my own images. And I don't hide them. The wallpaper on my computer is a crotch shot that I dearly love of the recently photographed Thyia. My wife wouldn't think of asking me to change it to something else. So I have no need to hide pictures from her in some multi level file that I hope she will never stumble across. And likewise I do not schedule my shoots when my wife is gone. She is more than welcome to sit in on them anytime she wants, though she rarely wants to intrude.
I think photographers that hide images from their wife and schedule shoots with young models when their wife is gone need to look seriously at their life and get a grasp on it because they are acting like school boys when they are physically grown up. There are no doubt some mental health issues or a really poor marriage involved.
Just my thoughts for this morning as I look through some blogs of others.
