Thread: In Help in NUDE Photo Taking

  1. #81

    Default

    Insist that no 3rd party ever gets any copy of any photos containing exposed private parts ...

    I tell my clients that even they or myself should not send any soft copy to anybody over the internet, even I should not send it to them over the internet. Strictly by CDR or prints only.

    Contrary to what you think, there are plenty of people who wish to do so for their private collections.. rememberance of youth being one of the main reasons.

    And they do pay professional prices to get it done right..

    nude photography is not illegal man,my instructor held a exhibition at objectifs not long ago, shot this japanese woman nude, nicely done,
    the bare human body is one of the most natural and beautiful creation.
    so how can a photograph of a natural thing be illegal?

    In response to Vince123123.

    If the nude photo get into circulation, then he may contravene some of those Acts that you mentioned. This is when you get into trouble with the State. Tort is when get into trouble with the the party concerned.

    there was a newspaper article on people asking for nude photographs of themselves taken, I believe in TODAY paper about 2 years back?
    anyway signing a form would be good advice, getting an assistant to witness too if that's not a problem
    and there have been nude photography exhibitions in singapore (not too explicit but still...)

    Bikini pictures are much more obscene than many nudes, FHM is obscene compared to many nude images.
    I think we should all start taking nude photos and have exhibitions
    That's the only way we won't spend the next 100 years in Singapore being scared of body parts which we were born into, and realise than being naked does not mean being obscene.

    anywya didn't lee hsien loong or someone say something a year back about changing the Singaporean mindset to "if it's not said, then it's prohibited" to "if it's not said, then it's allowed"?

    Obscenity is a state of mind

    Of cos, I do have to admit, some of those bikini model pix I'd seen out there are quite tasteless. Namely the posing. It hurts to see ur favourite idol in that kinda compromising position though the focus was on her face and her assets are blurred.

As I have done nude and worry about the same thing, only different I have done my homework and willing to share. But is people like the above they question every thing without really doing anything but discourage and putting me off.

    The reasons for asking is just to seek clarification on the basis of the statements made by you.

    Well, what I doubt model releases are covered in the Copyright Act, thats why I'm asking you which section or law you're relying on - perhaps you know something that I don't. its not meant to discourage or put you off. I'm sure you must have gotten your conclusion based on an authoritative source of law now isn't it? It would be good if you could let us know where the authority is for your advice that model releases are under the Copyright Act.

    same goes for the Women's Charter (not chapter).

    hope you can share the benefit of your knowledge with the rest of us. cheers!

    [QUOTE=vince123123]at least someone has a better idea of what the UPA is really for

    Oh really What scary me the most is people take these picture for "THEIR OWN ENJOYABLE" make you wonder why the photograph create in the first place. As long you share or show the image to others it a publication. In the eye of the law this thread is a publication becuase it is make clear to the public to see. What UPA is really is I wonder you Really know? Then the idea take the pictures but no did show people just take for shoik? Why? Sound Scary. I would not want to waste my time if I can't show and share my work.

    wah lao eh it's just a bloody shoot with a girl taking her pants off...I've had more girls take pants off without having to get a lawyer...haha
    but seriously, not everyone has the time money or effort to go get a lawyer to do things that seem slightly questionable
    and sometimes you just have to be daring to be creative, take safety precautions but don't overexaggerate the situation
    it's not like he's going to film a porno

    Meaning of obscene
    3. For the purposes of this Act, a publication is obscene if its effect or (where the publication comprises 2 or more distinct parts or items) the effect of any one of its parts or items is, if taken as a whole, such as to tend to deprave and corrupt persons who are likely, having regard to all relevant circumstances, to read, see or hear the matter contained or embodied in it.

    (2) In determining for the purposes of this Act whether or not any publication is objectionable, the following matters shall be considered:

    (a) the extent and degree to which, and the manner in which, the publication

    (i) describes, depicts or otherwise deals with acts of torture, the infliction of serious physical harm, sexual conduct or violence or coercion in association with sexual conduct;

    (ii) exploits the nudity of persons or children or both;

    (iii) promotes or encourages criminal acts or acts of terrorism;

    (iv) represents, directly or indirectly, that members of any particular community or group are inherently inferior to other members of the public or of any other community or group;

    (b) the impact of the medium in which the publication is presented;

    (c) the character of the publication, including any merit, value or importance that the publication has in relation to literary, artistic, social, cultural, educational, scientific or other matters;

    (d) the standards of morality, decency and propriety that are generally accepted by reasonable members of the community; and

    (e) the persons, classes of persons or age groups of the persons to whom the publication is intended or is likely to be made available.
    [9/98]

    (3) The question whether or not a publication is objectionable is a matter for the expert judgment of any person authorised or required by or pursuant to this Act to determine it, and evidence as to or proof of any of the matters or particulars that the person is required to consider in determining that question is not essential to its determination except that if such evidence or proof of such matters or particulars is available, that person shall take that evidence or proof into consideration.


    ---------------

    Offences involving obscene publications
    11. Any person who

    (a) makes or reproduces, or makes or reproduces for the purposes of sale, supply, exhibition or distribution to any other person;

    (b) imports or has in his possession for the purposes of sale, supply, exhibition or distribution to any other person; or

    (c) sells, offers for sale, supplies, offers to supply, exhibits or distributes to any other person,

    any obscene publication (not being a prohibited publication) knowing or having reasonable cause to believe the publication to be obscene shall be guilty of an offence and shall be liable on conviction to a fine not exceeding $10,000 or to imprisonment for a term not exceeding 2 years or to both.
    [8A
    [9/98]

    Offences involving objectionable publications
    12. Any person who

    (a) makes or reproduces, or makes or reproduces for the purposes of sale, supply, exhibition or distribution to any other person;

    (b) imports or has in his possession for the purposes of sale, supply, exhibition or distribution to any other person; or

    (c) sells, offers for sale, supplies, offers to supply, exhibits or distributes to any other person,

    any objectionable publication (not being a prohibited publication) knowing or having reasonable cause to believe the publication to be objectionable shall be guilty of an offence and shall be liable on conviction to a fine not exceeding $5,000 or to imprisonment for a term not exceeding 12 months or to both.


    -----------------
    by the way, if you read the definition above, it is always to regards to "any other person" . "any other person" doesn't include the parties already involved (ie: the photographer and the model)

    so by definition, if the work is for private consumption (ie: you) and the model has a release and consent (as such an involved person). seems like private consumption is ok.
    Can someone pls translate into easy to understand english? Thanks.
    photography makes one sees things from all angles.
