amateur doesnt imply bad quality either in photo settings or model performance but if i see something that would be "improvable" (mistake an experienced photographer wouldnt make) (and i spot it) would likely point it gently
My first thought is usually to find something I like about the picture and comment on that, such as, "the use of light and shadow is very well done" or "the model actually looks like she's enjoying herself". I enjoy looking for things that make the picture stand apart from all the others. If, however, it's a close up of someone's genitals, I think along the lines of, "that's not very tasteful". I'm an artist. I like looking at art, not pornography. If a picture is well done, it deserves praise. I honestly don't think I've ever thought someone was a whore though.
if its been well done, then i would probably admire the person, pause to appreciate the various bodily curves, and the effects of lighting and shadows etc, then seek their permission to use the image as a reference for my own sketches.
if it's been terribly done then i'd just think "ooookay, fire your photographer"
i was just conused. i mean confused. did i spell that right. im sorry youre so nice and everything looks like i p spelll it wrong whe n i am drunk. maybe ignore this and i can trype sense when i am sober.
If it's just another young white girl with a "perfect" shape: I'm a bit disgusted by the photographer and disappointed by the model, somewhere in my mind, I suppose. Also there's the comparing myself to the person in the photo sometimes, because this is the form I keep seeing shown as what's beautiful in a woman--am I as hairless, as thin, as perky? If it's someone with a different shape, or a male nude for once: "finally something different!" If it's a crappy photo: lol and ew If it's a photo of a nude woman with just about any object because people like taking pictures of women being sexy with objects or animals: I will feel annoyed at the sexism, conformity, and stupidity. These are the ones where I definitely feel distaste for the photographer.
I would never see a nude picture of a woman and think "whore", that's just ridiculous. And any negative feelings would be more directed to the photographer, as they're the one setting up the picture and choosing the model.
I think it depends on the photo what my first thought will be, if its like a silly bathroom pic my reaction would be to not even acknowledge it and move on, if it were artistically done my thoughts would center around the artistic aspect of it and whether I thought the photo were any good or not, picture quality, creativeness etc. if it were something that violates policy I'd report it and move on. honestly not a whole lot of thought goes into the woman herself, just what kind of artistic sense she portrays and the quality of the work. the woman is a subject matter in a piece of art so the extent of my thoughts about her only go as far as how the subject matter is portrayed as art. I don't know or care what she's thinking for the most part unless the art is supposed to convey a feeling or thought of some kind. if its supposed to give a sense of strength it might occur to me whether she actually has her heart in the work or something like that which would pertain to how well the message was conveyed and still not really pondering the inner workings of her mind.
long story short for sexual thoughts, eh, a naked chick is a naked chick and if there's nothing artistic about it thats all its a photo of and not really worth pondering over. if it is artistic then the woman is the subject of a piece of art and thats about the extent of my interest, I don't think about how brave/stupid/sexy an apple or sculpture is when its the subject of a piece of art, a subject is a subject

Im a chick. I wouldnt say stuff like that. It wouldnt be fair. When people do more extreme views/work on the body, Im always intrigued, and if it looks nice, i like that too. If it was really pornographic. I would roll my eyes, fume, move on.
I'd like to point out what I think of a professionally photo is no different from what I think of an amateur one. It all depends how well it's done. Done well is done well. Not done well is not done well.

I always see things in an artistic matter first since I'm nothing but an artist. If there is anything artistic appealing to me then I'll state that but if its poorly done then I base it off of the woman's body. If she has a body that I like/want then I appreciate it more but if not then I go towards "eh" and move on.
