What a wonderful collection of nudes from photographer Mike Dowson. Had never heard of him till I was searching around Tumblr. I would just reblog all these pictures on my Tumblr, but I don’t want you people to have to go back and forth checking for different updates.
Of course, what I enjoy most about Dowson’s pictures is his taste in women. Model selection is an art in itself. Along with shape and size, a good model brings intensity to a shoot, almost like she has to make a commitment, albeit short term, of intimacy to the man or woman who is shooting her. You’re not always going to find the right model. Sometimes it’s out of your control and your working freelance. You might be hampered by money, being unable to afford the very best looking women (as awful as that sounds). Other times, the matter is that of a photographer not knowing what men really like to look at or just having no clue as to what looks good, especially regarding styling.
Mike Dowson has none of those hiderances and I’m completely on board. There is just something extremely engaging about slender, thin women with big, firm breasts. That sounds like the obvious, but again, it comes back to taste.
