Photography is a fun and relaxing hobby for many and a great and convenient way to create many happy memories of notable events. It is also an excellent way to share holiday and nakation (naked + vacation = nakation) moments with friends and family. Your camera, when used appropriately, is not only a means to create joy but a tool for spreading that happiness to others.
Just keep in mind that your camera is not a frivolous toy. For some, it is just as lethal as an unregistered weapon. Think before you aim and focus. You don't want to use it to create unpleasant memories.
Some people, whether bare or textile (clothed) are naturally uncomfortable having their picture taken under any circumstances. For whatever reason, photography causes them stress and anxiety. It is always a good idea and practice to make sure that only willing and consenting subjects appear in your pictures. This courtesy should be a rule for every photograph that you take. Period.
When with bare or nude friends, always remember this rule and plan your photos so that only your buddies are in the image. For example, when posing your crew for a picture at the beach, make certain to select a location where others aren't around. If this proves difficult, politely approach those who may be in your photo and ask them to either step out of the way for a moment or if they would be so kind as to take a group photo with yourself included. Most people appreciate the courtesy.
Be aware that many clothing-optional and nudist destinations have strict policies regarding photography and filming at their locations. This policy reflects privacy and confidentiality concerns of all of their guests. Upon arrival, if you're uncertain about this regulation at this particular site, ask before you plan to use your camera, even one in your mobile phone. Some places enforce this policy by confiscating equipment. Better to know in advance than to be sorry later.
A few clothing-optional and naturist/nudist beaches and resorts have a strict no-camera regulation but also have a camera-friendly area where pictures are permitted. Those who object to being photographed are aware of this and remain outside of the designated area. If this is the case at your location, then your only concern are those who appear in your picture.
Peace! Get naked. Enjoy!
