Greetings all,

I thought this might be an interesting topic that hasn't been discussed
very often.

In addition to techniques, I thought that other relevant things such as etiquette,
personal experiences, and actor/actress observations might also be of worth.


I've done several nude/sex scene shoots and they never seem to be easy, for a variety of reasons.

For the one I've done, which didn't actually make it into the cut, it wasn't really problem. We went for a voyeuristic style; hand held and dimly lit with nothing but the lights in the living room (and a china ball dimmed down).
We dismissed everyone who wasn't necessary leaving just myself and the director. We stayed back and just let it play out. There wasn't any real nudity in it but we implied it with angles etc. And yes, we just shot it.
First take everyone was nervous. Second take, the same, but by the 3rd the actor/actress started cracking jokes at me, not that i minded. So yes wasn't too bad of an experience. Though I know each/every time i wind up having to do anything intimate it'll be a different situation/protocol/aesthetic.
