The digital age has meant that any photographer who is interested in creating erotic photography can be technically proficient without either years of training or experience learnt as an assistant, to a greater or lesser degree. Also instant and online sharing has created a further outlet for nude images can be created, sent and shared without a moment’s hesitation. The study of exotic female art nudes in photography continues to be a popular art form with photographers (professional and amateur) today. Photographers are able to manipulate photographs in ways that the pre-digital pioneers could only dream about (be it technique or speed of process), thanks to digitisation and various popular photo edit suite programs that are within most photographers’ financial range. As photography continues to evolve, the art of photographing erotic art nudes will undoubtedly change as well, taking it to even greater heights. Already we are seeing packages that include not just photographs, but incorporate film, interviews, ‘how-to-modules’, interactive media.
Also today’s array of amateur erotic photography has grown thanks to camera phones, webcams and online sharing, and an abundance of willing models.

Does anyone do it for their 15 minutes of fame (which is all so fleeting these days)? I suspect the true answer is no, as fame or infamy tends to happen when a spurned lover seeks revenge by openly posting sensitive photos on the net.
Finally, it can be harmless fun to pose nude for whatever reason, but always remember when trusts and friendships are broken, the gloves are off and your erotic photos may end up online.
