After last weeks post on how to decide whether or not to pose in lingerie , we are going to have play around with how to actually get the photos that you will love. Lets face it, if a man is getting photos of his sweetheart in lingerie, he is already satisfied. This is going to be about set up, posing, and presentation of your excellent sexy gift, so you feel good.
First you need to get a piece of lingerie that reflects the degree of nudity you are comfortable with (covered last week-pun intended).
I have been on both sides of the camera, here are some set up tips to make this easy.
Natural light is one of the best, very forgiving. If you have a private section you could even have the photo shoot outside. Artificial light too often causes shadows.
Add a little light to your body, use an oil based scrub on the day, and if you like use a body lotion with a little sparkle.
Look down on yourself. Without getting into tricky technical tidbits, you always want your photo taken as if it it was taken by a netball player. Put a stack of books on a tallboy dresser if you must.
If you are shooting it alone, use the sports setting. The camera will take a photo every few seconds leaving you free to focus on posing.
Posing- Two words. Don’t stare. Connecting through the camera lens is a skill that even some models fail on. So take your nose and point it away from the camera. Show the sillhoutte of your face, not the irises of your eyes.
Here are 2 basic poses to get your started, once the fun starts flowing it will come more easily and you can do what makes you feel sexy.
Down on your tummy- head closest to the camera, feet furtherst away. Prop up on your elbows for a delectable view of your chest. A little bit of arching and your derrière will pop into view.
The next pose is just as sexily simple, flip over and instead of popping up your backside, throw up your legs. Try making your legs looks like a flamingo and then crossing them daintly at the ankle. Careful not to bend your knees to far or you calfs will look wider.
Presenting your romantic gift- don’t use wrapping paper for this. Give it in a box, this encourages all the photos to stay in one place and not be left lying around the house.
Another idea for presentation is to present yourself already wrapped in lingerie along with a camera and let him take the photos. The photos will have a triple layer of delight, the photos themselves, the memories of taking them and the good time had afterwards (make sure the camera isn’t on then!).
Happy Valentines Day ladies!
