Photographing nudes as hobby

The word obscene was explained by Madras High Court in Public Prosecutor v. Sabapathy, to mean anything offensive to chastity or modesty, expressing or presenting to the mind or view something that delicacy, purity and decency forbid to be expressed, impure as obscene language, obscene pictures, anything expressing or suggesting unchaste and lustful ideas, impure, indecent and lewd. Pornography was also defined by Supreme Court of India in 1965 to mean libidinous writing or anything of high erotic effect. However, Allahabad High Court gave a very clear overview of p*rnography in State v. Kunjilal, where it distinguished between obscenity and p*rnography as such.

And more....specific

Where the Censor Board certifies a film as being fit to be exhibited, it will be a relevant fact in ascertaining whether or not the film is obscene. Such certificate is not conclusive and it will not debar from trying the case under this section. A certificate granted under section 6 of Cinematography Act does not provide an irrefutable defense to the accused who have been granted such certificate but it has to be taken into consideration by Court in trial for the offence under sections 292 and 293 of Indian Penal Code.

This preposition was laid down in the case of Raj Kapoor v. State (Delhi Administration) where public prosecution was initiated on a private complaint against theater owner, producer, actor, photographer of `Satyam Shivam
Sundaram' for promoting punitive prurience, moral depravity and shocking erosion of public decency....

It appears that you know more than the experts who are advising you in futile.

Yes the opinion of experts ought to be respected for practical purposes of avoiding legal problems. As an additional layer one may also put a legal disclaimer before one is allowed to enter the website.

Having said this, there are many law questions that remain unanswered by Section 292 of IPC. Section 292 of IPC is flowing from Articles 19 and 21 of Constitution. Article 19 is nothing but enhanced protection of the rights of citizens, in comparison to same rights of persons already present in Article 21. It means that such enhanced protection for citizens is embedded in Section 292 of IPC.

Besides the word "obscene" or its definition can hardly ever be objective. Usually it is going to be very subjective or hypocritical or rather a lie. Example - when some citizens or persons are seeing any movie or pictures containing nudity and the like, in cinema halls or bedrooms, they will be enjoying such experience or material. But if the same material is shown to them in their place of worship or before elders, they will react in a very different and opposite manner, even though in the depth of their minds be longing to see or experience such things .
