Charlie Haughey was drafted into the US Army in October of 1967. He was 24, and had been in college in Michigan before running out of money and quitting school to work in a sheet metal factory. The draft notice meant that he was to serve a tour of duty in Vietnam, designated a rifleman, the basic field position in the Army. After 63 days in Vietnam, he was made a photographer, shooting photographs for the Army and US newspapers, with these instructions from the Colonel: “You are not a combat photographer. This is a morale operation. If I see pictures of my guys in papers, doing their jobs with honor, then you can do what you like in Vietnam.”
Posted by Shay in Photos on September 30th, 2009 So last Friday we had a nude photography session. Nude photography is different. And not just because the model doesn’t have clothes on. Suddenly, the entire body is your subject. When what you see is pretty much what you get, the beauty of the photographs comes from the angles, the light and shades falling on your subject, the unique cropping of frames (where sometimes you can’t even tell who or even what is photographed) and generally speaking – your creativity.
