A boudoir photo-shoot is where we all can shine in our seductive sexiness. We can express our alluring nature and unapologetically be our sexy selves. It is a good way to upgrade our swinger dating profiles with super hot pictures. It also empowers us to embrace our natural sexy nature which can be such an amazing confidence booster.
For the best results, there is a bit of preparation needed to set the stage and getting the shoot done, the results are poses that seem effortless and represent a model in their sexual power. If this is something you’d like to try, here is everything you need to know about making it happen.
Choosing the Right Equipment
When doing boudoir photography, the best results come from using a good camera so upgrade from using your phone’s camera and reach for a DSLR. If you don’t have one, consider asking your friends if they have one you can borrow. Make sure to use your own memory card to ensure privacy.
You don’t need an expensive zoom lens as most of the pictures will be taken relatively close. A standard lens will do just fine. Instead of an expensive zoom lens, focus more on extra lights with light umbrellas and reflectors to light up your space without annoying shadows. Reflectors and umbrellas will bounce the light onto the body creating a more sensual and flattering look. You can also use red light bulbs to dial up the sexiness plus red light helps hide blemishes.
Picking & Setting the Stage
Less is more when figuring out your background. We want to keep the focus on your sexiness so that means no distractions in the background. Clear up space and make sure there is no clutter, family photos, or anything that might reveal your identity in your background. It can be easier to simply drape big bedsheets over a mess or create a false backdrop. When choosing a backdrop, pick one that will work nicely with your skin tone and clothing colors.
If you don’t have space in your home, you can take photos the next time you stay at a hotel (or book a hotel room for a swinger playdate). A king-size hotel bed with a white goose down comforter is a nice & simple option. A marble bathroom in a fancy hotel room can also create a sexy environment. You can also use a fireplace, nice wood floor, leather couch, or whatever makes you feel sexy. Be creative!
The most important part of picking a shooting location is choosing one that makes you feel your best. Taking pictures can be a bit anxiety-filled, so make sure you are somewhere that is comfortable and puts you in the right mood.
Remember that good lighting is important so try to pick a spot that has plenty of natural lighting. Pay attention to window locations. Good lighting accentuates your body curves and adds sensual depth to your photos.
You are beautiful, so let’s ensure your natural beauty is in full bloom for your photos. Take some extra care of your skin, hair, and nails.
A good way to ensure your skin looks its best is by practicing a good moisturizing routine. Don’t experiment too much with skincare products to avoid redness or rashes, which applies to shaving and waxing as well. Love your skin by staying hydrated and nourished. If you are tanning, it is always good to do so fully nude and avoid overdoing it, in this way you will avoid discolorations.
Your hair should look its best, so head to a salon and get it properly done. Depending on your poses, your feet and hands are probably going to be visible in your erotic pictures, so take care of them. You don’t want to overlook any part of your amazing body.
Performing an exercise routine right before your pictures will help your blood flow and highlight your muscle tone. Pumping some iron or working up a light sweat can help to highlight your hot body.
Dressing the part
The great news about boudoir pictures is that it allows you to be creative. Don’t hesitate to find inspiring lingerie online. Yes, there are even sexy options for men so make sure to do research. Different outfit options can help you feel more confident and looking your best.
Ladies … Corsets can help slim the belly area and add a wow factor to the bust. High-rise panties will slim the hips and lengthen the legs. A sheer nighty will give you coverage while still being sexy. Adding some accessories like a pearl necklace or feather boa can dial up the sexy and draw attention away from the parts you are less happy about.
Men … Compression workout clothes can look sexy and draw attention away from areas that are less toned. Going with tailored clothes highlights your body and avoids looking fat from wearing oversized clothes. Classics like well-fitted jeans and t-shirt will photograph well & give the lady something to tug on. Black boxer briefs are super sexy. Make sure to have a super hot teasing session right before taking pictures so your family jewels are presented at their best. Skip the button-down shirts as they can look too messy once they are unbuttoned.
Strike a Pose
Boudoir posing is all about being sultry and letting your inner sexiness shine through. Think of posing as an attempt to seduce another person. How would you position your body to ignite desire and intrigue? What pose makes you feel like a sex symbol? An arched back, laying and sitting poses, leaning against the wall, posing with hands-on cleavage or neck, and playing with your outfit are just some of the ideas. It is important to feel liberated in your own body and have a vision of what sexy means to you.
Embrace it! You are sexy and should make sure your pictures reflect your amazing self.
