As a professional photographer, I'm disappointed with the state of the selfie , the "sexy selfie" in particular. With the sheer amount of "leaked" photos on the Internet , it's infuriating that we're raising the next generation to believe that terribly composed, naked iPhone photos are sexy. For goodness sake, the nude photo used to be an art form, but lately it seems we seem to have forgotten how truly sexy the human body can be in all its subtlety. Lest I sound shame-y, I, too, have been guilty of the full face, full-on boob shot. And guess what? But after becoming more involved in boudoir and portrait photography , I discovered that there are many more exciting ways to increase the mystery of a nude picture without simply flashing your boobs — and guess what? They're super-easy. Follow these tips using the best nude poses illustrated with a little help from our pal, naked Barbie and your sexy selfies won't just stand out, they'll practically moan with excitement.
You've probably taken a nude selfie or two in your life, but did you love it? Like, really love it? Chances are that in the past, you may have taken at least 20 or so naked selfies before finding a photo that captured exactly the image you wanted to save or send. But have no fear — there are plenty of ways to make your experience taking nudes much more satisfying. Check out the handy list below for nine tried-and-tested tips that will have your naked selfies looking gorgeous from the very first shot.
Taking nude selfies is an act of erotic expression, and sharing them with a trustworthy partner can deepen your intimacy plus make for tantalizing foreplay. Sadly, the joys of this pastime are often eclipsed by anxiety over photos being stolen or shared without consent. As long as everyone involved enthusiastically consents at every step of the way, taking and share nude photos is one of the hottest things you can do.
You should get down on your knees every day and thank whichever god you believe in for bringing the iPhone into your hands. Never before has remote foreplay been so easy, making the sexy selfie a standard in hormone-fueled texting. However, not unlike celebrated photographers in the field, mediocrity should not be tolerated. Do you think a National Geographic photographer has ever turned in a badly cropped, out-of-focus picture of an eagle? No way.
