beyond the fact that nude people with vaginas and breasts are just nice to look at, what made either of them good?
>>
>>4016725
how the image itself looks and how original it is (or was at the time)
>>
>>4016760
>NEW GOOD
Absolute garbage. Imagine taking snapshits of nude people and thinking they're good just because no one else did it since everyone thought it was fucking stupid.
>>
>>4015449
got the internet. way more noods

>>4016992
Originality takes creativity. Copying doesn't take much creativity.
>>
>>4012563
Helmut Newton wasn't good, first off.
Roversi is pretty good and he managed to pass from analog to digital quite gracefully, integrating it with his style rather than fighting with it like most boomer photographers do

how much originality is involved in it conceptually, really, though?

taking a photograph of a naked femme after the advent of photography is only original in so much as the photo hadn't been taken before. people have been depicting nude femmes probably since the first masc achieved puberty. on one level (totally new photo subject!) it's novel; one all other levels it's not. said another way; is it really impressive that, considering photography had been created, a heterosexual man invented pornography? I think no. That seems pretty intrinsic to heterosexual men interacting with depictive media.

>>4015449
yeah its fucking boring as shit, he somehow made nude woman unsexy
>>
>>4017891
NOT AS BORING AS ONLYFANS CRAP or as shitty as the hacks on IG.
BTW are you sure you aren't queer?

please explain how Newton wasn't a master?

what makes a master?

Terrys talent was getting his models into their most expressive poses. Your model looks lifeless and bored. Your photos are technically what you were trying to do but it lacks any emotion from the subject.
>>
>>4023290
Newton was a g at framing.
>>
>>4024415
>put the subject(s) in the center of the frame, or along one or more of the lines of thirds
>master

so masters abide strictly to elementary rules, then?
>>
>>4024423
Did I say
>Newton was a g at rule of thirds?
Framing is much more than just placing a subject in an image, it is about constructing and positioning the environment around the subject to tell a story.

This is one of my favorite pictures ever. That's Newton's wife on the right. There is so much going on here besides

>muh n00ds

Look in the background at the building and how perfectly spaced the windows are in the door frame and the fact they are exposed just as well as the interior of that room, he had to wait for overcast light outside to get that shot. read that again, dude waited for the light outside for a small portion of the photo to get to a point where he could expose for both indoor and outdoor light. that is some next level camera autism.

Newton was a G just period. He's one of my influences most definitely on my work.

couldn't find much info on it and was looking at paying the stupid price people are asking for it. It's actually rather disappointing compared to his other work.
wouldn't happen to have his "Studio" book would you?

>>4031051
meh, imagine going full autist for a bit of light outside the window, and meanwhile not even noticing your wife is ugly and your middle has terrible tits

definition of missing the forest for the trees

hey i know, i'll take a picture of a girl with pepperoni nipples on flabby outward-facing tits, with me in the shot visible in the mirror, and my awful frumpy feminist librarian wife sitting next to the mirror watching it all.

LETS CALL THIS ART!!!
