inverted nipples/2 shoot or not 2 shoot? I was curious 2 know....if a model has inverted nipples and shoots nude for a photographer do they re-edit them 2 look like outy nipples or do photographers that like 2 shoot nudes shy away from women/men that have them?

If a model doesn't shoot nudes, why would it matter?

Doesn't matter.  I wouldn't edit the nipples to look like outties.

I think I'll put a casting out for a model with inverted nipples.

Does the OP know one?

I wouldn't edit them.  I'm sure they're fine just the way they are.  If you're fine with them and the photographer is not, then maybe you shouldn't be working with that photographer to begin with.  Yes, there are picky photographers out there, but I don't happen to be one of them, and I would work with you anytime.

I've never been that bothered about nipples being "inverted" or "sticky outty" in particular myself, though a few models have insisted on frozen peas from time to time, so maybe I'm missing the point.

Inverted Nipples does sound like a good name for a japanese post-rock band though.

Some of the sexiest women on MM have inverted nipples.  Go for it.

Probably because I don't want to see pictures of random girl's inverted nipples.

Good answer.  :-)

I'd think whether to "fix them" in post would just be one more thing to discuss beforehand. 
My inclination would be to leave them natural or you'll have to explain it to everyone you shoot with.

bring on the inverted nipples. f**k me there are some small minded folk out there if they cant get their heads around that! damn!
but yeah all natural is all good. and for me personally i woudl FAR FAR FAR rather shoot someone with inverted nipples than fake/enhanced boobs... but maybe that makes me weird? i dunno... im sure i will get some hate mail very soon for saying such a thing!

by the way. @OP. you look fabulous!, and i know you didnt ask so forgive me for going off piste here for a second, but i recommend you cut down on your overly edited headshots. one or two is fine. theyre interesting but i personally think you dont need more than that. since you look amazing in your other shots anyway.

just my two penneth!

good luck out there!

I'm sad that you've let this non-issue become an issue in your mind.  Inverted nipples are more common than you probably even imagine.  They should never stop you from any genre of modeling.

One of my favorite agency models has inverted nipples.  She's superb at nudes (though none of those images are posted on MM, per agreement with her, they just go to galleries), and the inverted nipples have never been an issue.

I hope you stop worrying about things that just aren't important, and simply enjoy making beautiful images.

Good luck.

Really. I could have them and not even know it.... Probably not though.

Okay I googled them, and I never knew they existed. You learn something new every day.

I would not "edit/modify" a women's inverted nipples...but then I don't really shoot nudes anyway.

This doesn't need to be a reason not to shoot nudes unless YOU feel it is.

OP...so what's the reason we have to have two threads on this same subject?
As long as a female model HAS nipples...I don't care.

You have 2 options for Nudes of models with inverted nipples:
1. Make them erect; or
2. Shoot them, as-is.

I've done both & would never dream of retouching them away.  All women are beautiful.  All breasts are beautiful. 

OP, I visit South Florida regularly & would love to shoot some beautiful Nudes with you.

some people have had their nipple pierced and inserted a small barbell as the "treatment" for inverted nipples. YMMV...

Yea but there's a lot of complications with that.. not being able 2 breast feed is one of them.
