More about alternative modelling and semi-, covered, and full-nudes.

Alternative modeling is a branch of the modeling industry that features models who do not conform to mainstream ideals of beauty. Alternative models are often niche-specific, with a personal style that represents subcultures like goth, steampunk, fetishism or even hippie. An alternative model may, for example, be tattooed, pierced, or have other body modifications, have distinctively subcultural hair such as being shaved, dyed a distinctively unnatural color etc. Alternative modeling can be clothed or unclothed. In the #ToCaptureTheEssence theme, the shoots progress from fully clothed to semi-, covered-, or full-nude. Alternative modeling was given substantial mainstream media coverage in the last decade, partly through the creation and popularization of community-based alternative modeling paysites, like GodsGirls and SuicideGirls. Alternative modeling community sites usually promote their models for their personality as well as for their looks and portfolio.

In the #ToCaptureTheEssence context semi-, covered-, and full-nude means the following:

Semi-nude: The model wears some clothing or accessories during the shoot. E.g. she will wear shorts and no shirt, but her nude breasts are not captured in the photo because arms would cover her breasts or her back would be facing the camera. Another example is where a shoot is done and the model only wears an unbuttoned long shirt however no nude breasts or groin area is captured as the shirt would conceal.

Covered-nude: The model would be naked but no uncovered breasts, nipples or groin area would be captured. She would be posed or styled in such a way that even though she is naked, nude breasts, nipples and groin are not shown.

Full-nude: The model would be naked and her nude breasts and nipples would be captured. The model's groin area would in some photos be covered by e.g. the models hand and/or leg position, and in some photos will not be covered by a hand or leg positions - note that #ToCaptureTheEssence does not capture explicit spread shots and obscenities. If it is agreed that a full-nude shoot will be done, then details of the extent of nudity is discussed before the shoot.
