Artistic Nude Photographs make a Unique Bridal or Christmas/Holiday Gift
By Kenneth Wajda
There's a present that's heating up many wedding and holiday gift lists this year and it's about as personal a gift as you can give. The gift is an artistic nude photograph.
Kenneth Wajda is an award-winning photographer who specializes in artistic nude photography. He is considered one of America's premier photographers of the female nude.
Created as an artistic piece worthy of framing in the home, they can range from full figure to very abstract.
"When I'm working with a model, I tell them that really, I'm seeing their body like I would a vase or any other three-dimensional object. I am working on poses with light and am creating an image through the recording of that light reflected off their body. Every body is beautiful and my photography just captures its beauty through the use of light and shadow." said Wajda.
And there is also the editing process, where I often turn the photo into a monotone color (blue, sepia, magenta, etc.) or black & white and sometimes add a bit of diffusion. This is all part of the "look" of the final image that I create.
Finally, I complete the piece with professional framing or at the very least, suggestions for framing if the client is going to order the framing.
"I was trying to decide what to get my fiancee for a wedding gift when I came across Ken's website. I realized immediately that it was the perfect idea. Nevertheless, I was a bit nervous leading up to the shoot because I had never done anything like it before. I was in for a pleasant surprise.
Ken immediately made me feel at ease. He is a very down-to-earth person, but yet extremely professional. Throughout the shoot, Ken asked for my input with poses and made sure that I was comfortable. In the middle and at the end of the shoot, Ken sat down with me to look at the photos. It was really great to participate in the process that way and to see the results so quickly. I was amazed at how many of the photos I really liked.
Only two days after the photo shoot, Ken sent my web preview gallery. All of the photos were very tasteful and flattering. I found so many photos that I liked, it was very difficult to choose between them. It was a wonderful experience and I know that my fiancee is going to love the results!
Thanks, Ken, so much for a great experience."

Thank you so much for the beautiful photographs. Heading in to do something like this was a little nerve-wracking for me, but you put me at ease and I did not feel nervous at all! From the moment I met you, I knew that what you had written on your website was 100% your philosophy and we were really making beautiful art. Thank you for the beautiful photographs that Wade and I can treasure for our lifetime.
I decided to go with you because of your statement you had written on your website. I was impressed with your philosophies and ideals and I thought in order to do this, it had to be done right. I chose you because your ideas were right in line with mine. A friend of mine had pictures taken of her in Chicago, but I didn't feel they really captured the essence of how beautiful a woman is. When I looked at your work, I could see that you are an artist.
Thank you for also giving me options. While you are the artist, I feel you have always listened to my input and know you are respecting my opinions about photographs that are ME! That is hugely important from my point of view.
Thank you for a wonderful time. Wade and I really enjoyed meeting you and Mary. And thank you for the beautiful photographs. I never knew I could look so good!"
