How to Do Erotic Home Photography

Taking sexy photos with your lover is an activity that will no doubt create some red-hot heat between the two of you. Aside from its sexual promises—generating an erotic setting which can lead to an extremely heightened state of arousal before you’ve even touched each other—photographing each other requires a great amount of trust. Trust, in this way, works kind of like a quiet stimulator, sneaking up on you…and waking up other body parts, wink*. If you have enough trust in a relationship to take pictures and keep erotic photos of each other, it will likely be even more of a turn-on for both of you, exhibiting your bond in a very tangible way. 

Note: I’m as eager to start as you, but before talking you about this, I have to remind you that you should never let someone take erotic photos of you if you’re not sure about it. There’s no pressure, if you don’t completely trust a person, just wait until you do. This piece of advice works for this and for many other things, wink*.

Now, if you are ready to do this, let’s get started. Whether you’re thinking of taking pictures of explicitly hot nature or you’re thinking of pictures a bit more provocatively and coy, I have some general tips so the pictures come out flattering. Because let’s face it, even if we are completely comfortable with our naked bodies and our partner looking at it (and doing a little more than looking, wink*), tramping around nude in front of your lover is different than having a still shot of your butt that looks splotchy from something like bad lighting. Of course, one of the best things about an erotic home photography session is that it can be totally spontaneous, especially after you’ve done it a couple times. My advice is mostly regarding the basic elements of photography in terms of the naked body.

First of all, remove any clutter from the area where the photos will be taken. Too much in the photo other than the subject will be distracting. Something like dishes on the table or an untidy room usually won’t add to the appeal.  Also, try to use a lot of light for the pictures so you don’t have to use the flash (which tends to accent all the wrong areas of a photo). Pictures taken with a level of light that is too low will usually turn out grainy, unless you have a professional camera. For most, a simple digital camera is all you need. So, make sure to use plenty of lamps (spotlight lamps that can face in different directions are great), lots of candles, or sunlight. Candles can work really well to create a glowing essence on the skin, which is highly flattering to areas of the body with lots of curves, besides creating a very sensual vibe. Lighting (like candles, or a narrow casting of light through a doorway) can be used to create shadows. And let me tell you, shadows are super sexy. Imagine a picture where certain areas of the body are light but others dark, accentuating curves, producing intensity through the lighting contrast… Can anybody spell H-O-T? Next time your lover is alone, they will definitely be looking at these pictures and doing who knows what...

Another thing to think about is how to use angles. Here’s a tip: Photos taken from above the subject can create an extra-sexy appeal, and can produce really provocative results, as they generally won’t show quite as much. Taken from below, a picture will have the potential to be extremely explicit as those will easily focus on certain erotic areas, if you know what I mean.

Speaking of erotic body parts, (everyone’s favorite subject), you’ll have to decide on how much you want to show in the pictures. In the age of digital photography, you actually don’t have to make a decision one way or the other, as you can take as many different pictures (with changing degrees of nudity) as you like. Remember variety is great; it’s the spice of life. Take some pictures wearing hot outfits or lingerie. For example you can use a full body catsuit, which are wonderful for photos because they are gorgeous and usually reflect the light pretty well. Or you could try wearing panties and nothing else on top for some sexy shots. If that’s not your thing, maybe you could wear some pretty panties with a sexy corset? Or maybe a sexy lingerie set that looks amazing on you? The are lots of options available. Oh! And don’t forget about garters, stockings and even some shoes or a wig for an even more tantalizing variety!

Props are another great addition to add to your erotic photos. You could take pictures of a fantasy both you and your partner like. You could have your lover lock you up in some handcuffs while you pose with your most submissive look for a red-hot shot. Also, pictures with glass toys tend to work well, as the glass is often crafted to look striking on its own. Try a photo with a glass dildo… Maybe even press it to your lips? Which lips? Well, that’s up to you…*wink.  If suspension bondage is something you are interested, it has a high potential for great pictures, too—arms in the air, locked up tight—portrait of the perfect prisoner.

Erotic home photos are great for getting the night started. And if you’ve already brought the toys out to use in the photos, you likely won’t be putting them away. Plus, the photos will be there for later use—because who doesn’t like the idea of their partner getting off while looking at their sexy pictures? I think I might just take a look at some from my collection right now…
