About the Terminology

We’re so glad you’ve taken a moment to understand the terminology we use here on the Audacieux Photographics website.  We’ve found that some clients are intimidated and perhaps embarrassed by some of the terms they find here: nude, bodyscape, erotic, etc.  We hope, with a review of these words and what they mean, that we’ll put your mind at ease on the type of work we do and what sorts of shots your session will contain.  If you have questions on any of these, or perhaps suggestions on terms to add, please be sure to email us at sales@audacieuxphotographics.com!

Boudoir – French for “bedroom” or “private room”, boudoir is a term that, at least in the photography sense, is used to suggest photography of a subject in attire that is commonly associated with the bedroom.   This might include lingerie, undergarments, or even normal attire in partial stages of undress.  In this type of work, any nudity is generally implied rather than explicit.  This is the most common type of work we do for our clients.

Implied Nudity – Implied nudity is used to describe an image that suggests that the subject is nude, but does not reveal that explicitly.  In images of this type, the subject’s more private parts are concealed, either by strategic positioning of props, fabric, shadow, or other objects.  The subject may or may not actually be nude, but in the image, no hint of attire is included so as to give the impression of nudity even though it’s not proven.  Images taken in this fashion are useful for evoking the seductive feel that nudity creates without being as revealing as a true nude image would be.

Nude  – The partial or complete lack of attire allowing partial or full view of the subject’s more private areas.  Nude images may include props, fabrics or even some attire, but such additions do not generally obscure the fact that the subject is nude.  Nude images are often characterized by adjectives such as “figure”, calling attention to the beauty of the human body itself, and “erotic”, implying a more sexual nature to the image.

Bodyscape – The human body is beautiful in all it’s forms, and is regularly compared and contrasted to the beauty of landscapes.   A bodyscape is a type of image we use to convey the “landscape” of the body.  These images are often anonymous, meaning they generally lack identifying components such as a face.  Bodyscapes can be boudoir, nude, or erotic, depending on what attire, if any, is present, and if a sexual suggestion is present.

Erotic – An erotic image is one that conveys a sexual component or inspires a sexual response.  While it is often an intimidating word for those not used to using it, it simply means that which arouses a sexual desire.  Erotic is also a very subjective word.  At Audacieux Photographics, we’ve shot many images for many clients.  Some, are intended to show the beauty of the human form, others are intended to induce a sexual response, and in all cases, the question of meeting our goal can only be answered by those viewing the results.  Artistic images can be perceived by some to be erotic, and those intended to be erotic can fall short of that implication.   Erotic images can also be boudoir, nude or even clothed.  They are simply intended to call attention to the sexuality of the subject or subjects.

Casting Call – Field of Goldenrod – Paid

As we work on our “Nudes in Nature” project, this casting call seeks a fit female model for a figure nude shoot outdoors in a secluded area.  Pay for this casting is “shoot based” rather than by the hour.  The shoot is expected to require less than two hours of shooting, but will require some preparation and logistics.  Pay for this shoot is $100 at the conclusion of the session.  If desired, the model may also receive a selection of edited images from the session.

The model is expected to provide her own transportation to the location, currently expected to be in Warren County near Caesar Creek.  An additional $20 fuel stipend is offered for transportation.  Due to the limited weather window and other restrictions, this shoot will be conducted in the next 14 days.

No previous model experience is required. 18+ required, with ID.  A full commercial release will be expected.  The images are expected to be used for publication.  For publication purposes a pseudonym may be provided.   If possible, tear sheets will be provided when they become available.

If you are interested in this casting and feel that you meet the requirements, please email casting@audacieuxphotographics.com for consideration.  Please be sure to include links to any portfolios, or attach sample images to your email.  As this casting is for a figure nude model, images which show your figure, either nude or in minimal attire are preferred.

While we require only one model for this casting, we will keep all submissions on file for future consideration.
