      Just wondering who would be interested in taking part in a naked calendar to raise money for the site?

      Interesting idea. Wouldn’t you need professional photos though? Mine have nearly all been selfies plus a couple of times I’ve press-ganged my reluctant assistant into helping. We’d need artistic ways of hiding faces so that shy people could join in. I might end up saying no unfortunately. (It would be better in theory if we could get together somehow but I imagine that’s close to impossible.)

      The photos would be taken especially for the calendar. I should have enough experience to pull-off pro-quality images. It’s mostly framing, positioning and lighting and those I can do. Almost certainly the most difficult thing will be getting groups of people together for shooting. Actually, forget that, the hardest thing will be finding any women who want to take part.

        Seriously….. if you guys wanna do this, you can use any of the nudies of me that you already have there in the N.E. files.   I think this would be really cool!

      I should probably explain at this point, that I am NOT looking for contributions of pictures for a calendar. I would be inviting those interested in participating to a shoot (no idea where or when yet) where we can sort out suitable groups/poses and maybe a theme (beyond just nudity!) for the calendar as a whole.

      Before worrying too much about that, I’d be looking to work out who’s interested, where they are all based and then sorting out possible locations for the shoot.

      Fair enough.

      I haven’t given much thought to the posing of the photos. My initial interest is to find out if anyone is interested and then start a discussion on how to proceed (or not).

        I’ve been following this conversation about the calendar.  It’s now 2020 and we had better get on with it if we’re gonna get it done for this year.   😉

        ‘Just wanna say again that you could use any one of the four nude pix of me that are on N.E. website — face and all — if you want to.    As I am in California, I could not show up for a London photo session.  🙁

        ‘Hope you can find eleven other people who are willing.

      Thanks, Susan. I’m not thinking of a person per month. I’ve been thinking more along the line of a group in each month’s photo, and it doesn’t have to be a different set of people for every month. I’m guessing the minimum would be around 6-8 people for the year, but more would be better.

      As well as nudity (obviously), I’m wondering what everyone would think of having some sort of comedy element to the calendar. None of our community are exactly college students who can trade on having fit bodies. But what we could do instead is explore many of the nudity themes of this community with a tongue-in-cheek approach and focus on the sense of fun instead.

      It could be a way to attract more people to our community?

      Nice ideas.    I’d be willing to participate in any of those propositions but I don’t know how I could from way over here.   Tell me any ideas.    So….. all I can say for now is, feel free to use the nude pix of me that you have on file there.  😉

      @ed @auxilia Individual photos could be posed to keep faces hidden but it would be strange if there were no faces in the entire calendar.

      @ed @susan Would it work if we had instructions for posing by ourselves to match the rest of the pictures? That would mean @susan could join in, but it would mean having some months with a few individual photos, not a group.

      I’d be happy with a mix of faces shown and faces hidden. If I went with my photos exploring different aspects of this community’s topic idea, it should be easy to come up with suitable situations where some people have visible faces and others remain hidden. I wouldn’t want to go down the masks/disguises route, but with some inventive posing and framing I think those participants who want to protect their identity could be catered for.

      Ed,  I’d be OK with anything you want to do with one or two of my photos.   Maybe you could ‘photoshop’ me into a group of others.   But also, it would be a real thrill to have my very own month!  😉

      My husband says that maybe the cute, innocent pic of my nude backside with the wine glass would be easiest to use.   I guess that’s right.   But feel free to use any of the ones you have.

      Thank you, but using other people’s photos could be problematic from a rights point of view. Also, for printing purposes, any photos would have to be at least 2500 pixels across (preferably much higher so there is scope for enhancement/cropping etc.) and in sharp focus.

      I’m not sure what the gender balance needs to be for this, but if we’re going to proceed with this, we’ve got to have a few women involved, even if not all of them are naked in the calendar.

        Yeah!   I wanna be there for a page.   Also, wouldn’t mind if a different nudie of me was photoshopped into a group pic for another page.  But it would be a shame if I was the only woman in the calendar.

      That would work for a photo or two?

      I don’t want to tie the calendar to a single niche, but maybe a theme per photo or some crossovers etc. I still like the idea of making it humorous too and that does particularly suit CFNM and CMNF anyway.

      If you can get a calender for this year together that will be great.

      How about looking at doing one for 2021 as well? Thinking about the next one now would allow plenty of time to arrange meet ups – regional, national etc, for photo sessions in various locations. It would also mean participants might be more willing to pose naked outside in the northern hemisphere as we’ll have more nude friendly weather. It would also be a great reason to have meet-ups to get naked together. If the photos don’t quite work out as intended, then we just have to get naked together again for more shots!

      I hope that I’m not making any assumptions about members of nakedcommunity wanting to get naked together!

      I’m planning for 2021. Getting a calendar ready for this year would be a mammoth task. I’m expecting to require 3+ meetups at suitable locations and I don’t even have enough volunteers yet. Based on past performance, I would be amazed if the first calendar shoot can happen within the next two months.

        OK, reading the other posts I thought it was aimed at being done for this year. I can well imagine how tricky it is trying to organise this, but, glass half-full attitude, you got the naked experiment sessions organised. I’d like to participate and will travel a reasonable distance to meet up. I’m OK with being photographed naked, face included, I’ve been in naturist magazines, been seen in TV reports of WNBRs and on nudist club websites so its too late to decide I’m shy about being a nudist. As an aside, I’ve never had any problems through being seen naked in the media, the only people who’ve said anything were other nudists, hope that might re-assure people who may have doubts about being recognised while nude.

      Thanks, @nudenik. I think people tend to forget that the Internet is a VERY big place. The chance of someone who knows you seeing your naked picture is incredibly slim (unless you post it on your Facebook feed!) and, usually, only a very small proportion of people would say anything anyway. Most of those would find it interesting or funny. The percentage of people who would cause problems for the person naked in the photo is usually incredibly tiny. Also, there’s always a decent chance that they will assume it’s just someone else who looks like you.

      This wasn’t a Naked Calendar shot, but good fun to be part of. Despite the 4am get up to get to pose at 6am for early morning light and no tourists!! We still had one unexpected observer though!
