Nude Tutorial – iPhone Photography/Art – Not Safe For Work – (NSFW)

Share

 

Warning: First off, I want to apologize to anyone who may be offended by the content of this educational tutorial. I have published nudity previously and have been shot down. I have added to the title ‘not safe for work’ – NSFW and would recommend you don’t open this in a workplace or family setting if it is likely to cause offense. My purpose in publishing this article is to inspire iPhone photographers/artists to learn from this incredibly talented mobile photographer/artist, Elaina Wilcox and to enable them to learn how to create similar images.

 

If you’re offended please send your comment/s to the end of this post and I will respond accordingly. Over to you Elaina … (foreword by Joanne Carter)

I ran the image through Snapseed to darken up the right side of her body. I wanted the image to have a mysterious allure so shadow is an important element.

Next, still in Snapseed, I applied the number 3 vintage texture filter at 50 % opacity and saved the image.

My next step was done in Colormania FX where I applied a mask to the figure using the Rock wall and rag filters, I applied them at 100 % opacity.

My last step in  the app process was to take it into Photo Wizard to add some depth with more texture and light as well as clean up a few areas I wanted removed from the image.

The first step in PW was to blend the nude image with one of my custom texture photos from my Camera roll. Next, I cloned out a few areas I wanted changed, and applied the number 5 bokeh filter.

My last step in the process was to apply the light bloom filter using the yellow light. I saved the image at full res.

this is a great tutorial, Elaine. Your work is very tasteful and elegantly done!! I have been doing life studies for years in my drawings/paintings and know how beautiful the human body can be. (I’d do more in my photography…but need to find the model!) It’s sad that people get put-off by this sort of thing! Keep up the great work!!

David,
Yes it is sometimes hard to find models who are willing to pose, but usually once they see how I handle the image as well as their privacy during a shoot, they are quite happy to do it:)

Thanks Lillia…it was a pleasure…love Joanne, she is very supportive of the artist in the new and amazing art form…I just love it!!!

Greetings Elaina,

Thank you for presenting this wonderful tutorial. Recently I have been toying with the idea of doing some figurative photography and looking at ways to make it more obscured with elegance. So your tutorial makes perfect timing and teaches me something new.

Warmest regards,
Egmont
