People and nude photographer Martin Hirsch was born in 1971 in the festival city of Bayreuth, where he still lives and works today. In addition to his work as a photographer, Martin is active in various areas: he is the editor of the print magazine "Exxposed" and passes on his knowledge in coaching sessions and workshops on topics such as portrait, sensual and couple photography. He also runs a rental studio where other photographers can work on their creative projects.

Martin discovered his passion for photography in 2012, when his disappointment with blurry and wrongly exposed holiday photos taken with a compact camera got out of hand. This was the beginning of his journey into the world of "real" photography. The purchase of his first digital SLR, a Canon 600D with an 18-55 kit lens, did not immediately lead to better results. Unknown terms like aperture, ISO and exposure time required him to learn the basics. A photography course with Tom Striewisch proved to be a valuable source of advice and helped him to achieve his first successes.

Martin quickly realized that there are no hard and fast rules in photography. Fascinating images can be technically flawed, while technically flawless shots can seem boring. The art often lies in knowing the rules in order to consciously break them - an aspect that fueled his passion for photography. Technique and perfectionism should not get in the way of creativity. A slight overexposure or underexposure, a lack of sharpness or a lack of contrast can catch the viewer's attention, even captivate them, and reinforce the message of the photograph.

For Martin, working on the computer is an important part of the process that leads to the final result. In his opinion, the ability to edit images digitally is one of the most underrated skills of a skilled and creative photographer today. Traditionalists may protest, but even in the days of analog photography, image post-processing was common practice. Editing tools like Lightroom and occasionally Photoshop made it possible to manage and optimize images in RAW format.

10Photos says: Few photographers dare to break the rules of photography. And when they do, the results are often anything but presentable. Martin's photos show how to do it right. He conjures up emotional moods in his images. Sensual moments that are captured and allow the viewer to dive into the emotional world of portrait and nude photography. Eroticism and emotion are not in competition with each other, but together create a beautiful and harmonious body of work that leaves plenty of room for the viewer's own imagination. We are more than excited because this is photography at its highest level.

Necessary note on the subject of "buttocks and breasts" on the Internet: Dear young visitor. If you are not yet 16 years old, unfortunately you are not allowed to view these artistic and sensual photos. Please leave this site now. Alternatively you can go to a public swimming pool, there you will surely find enough women with naked torso. Or look at the lightly clothed girls on the billboards in the city. That is also allowed. Not here! Please close your eyes immediately and scream for help ...
