A couple of months ago we did a workshop on nude photography with a few fellow photographers from the local camera club. Excellent workshop leader and excellent model made for some really nice shots. Main focus point was the curves of the body. I’ve noticed that I’ve always been more a “detail” type of guy, so this was right up my street 🙂

Museums are often in very old or very modern/abstract buildings. They provide great opportunities to make some great pictures.

The other day we were in the Zoological museum in Helsinki.
The outside of the building isn’t particularly beautiful (at least I don’t think so), but the inside is absolutely great! The stair cases there (among others) have some great curves that come out beautifully in black and white.
