The World's Best Naturist Photo (well, according to my rules).
Some naturist photos seem to have a certain magic touch that can pull you in to the world of naturism with a glance and set your mind racing with possibilities. Maybe it reminds you of times you've had or times you wish you'd had. These special photos seem to be few and far between. So I decided to create a simple "Ten Point Checklist" list that I mentally compared photos to whenever I saw one.
I've seen thousands of naturist photos, but I only ever found one photo that ticked all ten boxes. These are my choices. Feel free to come up with your own list.
Some people may like naturist photos to be of happy children splashing around in the pool or an elderly couple holding hands watching the sunset on the ocean. Or a family of naturists running across a field. But these are MY ratings. Some are, by their nature, highly personal and possibly even a little controversial. I can only repeat that these are MY personal choices for what I consider to be a top naturist photo. Feel free to come up with your own list and select your own top scorer.
My Ten Requirements That Make Up My Perfect Naturist Photo. Ok, Top Nine Requirements, with a bonus point.
Yes, that's a real word. First and foremost, the photo needs to show someone who is loving the fact that they're naked! You should be able to read it in their face! The photo needs to be of someone who has immersed themselves into the joy of being naked because it's such a fun thing to do. So, no coy glances at the camera and no scared-rabbit looks.
Total full frontal nudity.
It's supposed to be a naturtist photo. There should be no clothes covering anything, no photos taken from the rear and no peeking out from behind trees or tables. We want to see the whole package.
Taken outdoors and in daylight.
It's easy to be naked in the privacy of your bedroom or in a hotel room, but it takes more than that to take a naturist photo outside where you have far less control over the environment and people may be watching you. You have to cope with all that and still be able to produce a good photo. And no skulking around in the dark, either. We want good honest daylight.
Amateur, not a professional model.
Motive is everything. Only an amateur can truly show the feeling of naturism, it's just not the same if you're being paid to do it. They should be doing it because they want to, not because they want the money.
Taken with members of the public visible in the photo.
The photo may well have been taken a public space, but a picture taken on a deserted beach or in an empty field, well, it's not the same. There needs to be other members of the public nearby and visible in the photo to bring it alive. It doesn’t matter if they’re looking or just getting on with their own business. But it confirms you're not the only naturist on the planet.
Doing something interesting, not posed.
The subject should be doing something spontaneous, not just standing there striking a pose. You want them to be doing something that shows they’re a normal person doing everyday normal things. Preferably something exciting and fun!
Taken by somebody else, not a selfie.
No selfies. And not taken with a long-distance telephoto, either. Nor did the photographer just prop the camera up on a brick and walk in front of it. If you took the photo, it needs to be of someone else.
Appealing and attractive.
This is the most personal choice. You'll all have your own opinion on this, so just substitute your own tastes. But for me, the photo needs to portray someone who has an alluring demeanor to make you want to be with them. Yes, I know that it shouldn't matter but it does. We're all humans and we don't all find everybody equally physically attractive. If we did, no one would ever fall in love at first sight.
This is the most important one to me. The subject needs to be happy and smiling, self-assured, confident, enjoying themselves and having a great time whether anyone is looking at them or not.
Finally, for a bonus point, there shouldn’t be any trace of pubic hair on the subject in the photo. No bush, no landing strip, no pencil moustache. Just smooth, bare, naked skin. See, I told you these were my personal choices.
I've only ever found one photo that gets my full TEN out of TEN ticks.
