As a (new) member, I do not wish to offend anyone; so i am hoping to get some heads up info about posting explicit nude male images which I have created. These images are based on self-shot photos which I have manipulated using various digital editing techniques. Although I feel these images are visually erotic, I do not believe they are pornographic.
My worry is that others may not feel the same way. I looked at the list of gallery categories available but none seem to be appropriate for such images. Could I get some guidelines about exactly where to post them?
I have been a frustrated artist almost as long as I can remember. I had some skills but no training, no innate abilities, and little gratification in my attempts. Digital photography and digital editing tools have allowed me to express the artistic side of me more than any medium I have ever experimented with. I never considered self-shot nude photos as an artistic subject matter, but that is what has happened, lol.
I get to play with photography, I get to be artistic, and I get the excitement of a digital form of exhibitionism. Now I am experimenting with sharing these images with others. I hope to get some honest reactions to the art itself and to the concept of artistic male nudity in general.
Any and all comments will be appreciated.
