ish an Appreciation of Beauty
however, when a human desire becomes an uncontrolled complusive addiction issue, that's the danger & death zone.
to be honest, i am glad that my photography frens are motivated by women and not men. imagine your dear buddy kept staring at you instead of that bikini model beside him...

errr....wats wrong with shooting chiobu? is it any different than shooting nudes which some claim are artistic (as in artistic nude) but others term as smut? or for that matter, why shoot babies? coz they're cute? or why shoot macro? becoz its dramatic?
may i suggest a slightly different question for the TS to ask: Why not?

It's the gender thing- ATTRACTION BETWEEN SEXES
Photography has been historically defined as:
"Capturing a thing of beauty while standing up."
the same could be said of "people shooting a nice dragonfly stoning"
"people shooting a nice mountain sitting there"
"people shooting an interesting pattern of lights"
an open mind is always best when approaching any form of art. does everything have to be conceptualised?
i have many bones to pick with people who seem to shoot "nice ladies" for the sake of some form of ego-propping (wow, i am shooting a girl in a bikini, go me! i feel like a jock) or mental masturbation (i shall not elaborate on this).. but the act itself is not wrong. it is the humans behind it that warp the entire act into something else entirely.
