The inspiration for this blog post came from a conversation I had on twitter. It would seem that there are enough people who love to make pictures and would love to learn, but don’t know how.
So I have good news for those who wish to learn a little bit more about how to make the photos that you want.
In this post I will be sharing a few basics with you, that I learned and that apply to everybody, no matter what camera you have.

Myself, I got a small digital camera and a big digital SLR with both different features, functions and settings but I use both to make pictures for my blog.
The small camera is handy for spontaneous pictures and I can use it with my small tripod anywhere I want to.
The big camera I use a lot with close ups, because that way I don’t have to use the timer and can have more control about what I want to that way.

Background
The background in a picture is very important and can set the mood of your photo. For instance if you want a more mysterious picture, you can use a dark background, like this:

IMG_1220

A typical point and hope for the best picture with my SLR

If you look at the picture, you see that the dark background enhances the lightness of the skin. Extra emphasizing is the black and white, what I like to use a lot and it is the only filter I use. Other filters look tempting to experiment with but I only stick to black and white.

Focus

If your you got a better camera you can also set the depth of field, so you got the area what you want to draw attention to is in focus (or not, depending on what you want to do) Here’s an example so you can see the different depths of fields.

IMG_2959

Also a point and hope for the best picture with my SLR

You can see the candle in front being fuzzy, the first nipple sharp and behind that the second nipple fuzzy again. Because you can still recognize what’s behind and in front of the focus field, it emphasizes the first nipple.

Composition
The way that you frame whatever you want to capture, is also important. You can also do this afterwards when cropping the image but you can also think ahead and think about how you want it before you make your picture.

The key with making in a picture powerful and interesting is the Golden Ratio. Using this, the key focus of your picture, should be at 2/3rd of the picture. Ideally the most interesting point of your picture would be 2/3rd of 2/3rd. Like in this picture below.

The orientation of the photograph also helps with showing your best assets 😉 Not to mention the splash of color to draw you in even more. Using composition you can let people look where you want them to look, at what you want to show off.

Shapes

This top tip is thanks to the lovely Mario from Someone Once Told Me who did a session at Eroticon 2013
When he mentioned that he loved shapes and that they are everywhere! Just looking out the window you can spot a lot of different shapes like the rectangular bricks s in this picture. How many shapes do you spot?

Shapes can make a picture more interesting to look at or really draw an image together. With this picture it really makes it a whole. To see the rectangles from the bricks with the natural, more flowing round body shapes.

I hope you all liked me sharing some basics and all I can say further is just practice a lot and get to know your camera. I even make the best and funkiest pictures just pointing my camera and not knowing where I’m aiming (yes I do that a lot)
Usually I make pictures on my own but having somebody else to help is not only more handy, but also more fun! So get experimenting and have some fun with it 😉

A Story For Sir

First of all, a Happy New Year! And I hope you’ll make it just as naughty as I intend to!
I hope you naughty lot keep enjoying my blog just as much as I do and keep up the perving!

A new year has arrived and along with that is of course a list of things I want to do the next year. But there is also a little reflection of the year that has past. It has been a fun but very busy year and I found out a lot about myself.
First of all the biggest thing that I found out is that I have ADD (Attention deficit disorder), for those less informed, it’s the little sister of ADHD but without the hyper part. Just the easily distracted part among other stuff. A lot of stuff fell into place when I found out and yes this also is a factor when it comes to sex.

When it comes to sex it’s hard to block out other stuff, not to mention focus my mind on what is going on.
The trouble with ADD is that you can’t see it or notice it straight away and if you don’t have it, it’s hard to understand.
Some great books help with that and help with describing what goes on within an ADD mind. With me it’s my mind going everywhere within seconds and forgetting what the previous thought was in less then that.

Anyway back to the sex part. Sex can be tricky because of that, I’m easily bored and it takes a lot to excite me and keep me interested. (not to mention the distraction my brain gives and letting me think of other stuff during sex) If you ever find yourself in bed with an ADD person, good luck! We are a lot of fun but we need a lot of input (me at least).

Dirty talk? Yes please. Music in the background? Only instrumental. Hands everywhere? Yes please! Moaning? The more the better! More people? Yes please!

So you lot can imagine the extra difficulty with sex there then. But it’s not all bad, I get excited really quickly and always horny around new people!
Anyway, I’ve got a lot of things I want to try (or do again)  so I decided to make a little list….
This list is part of the bigger list I have over here, to do 101 things in 1001 days. But of course I want to do the sexy stuff all!

  • To have…, yes no surprise that I want some girl on girl time and it’s the first thing on my list!
  • To have a threesome, moresome and an orgy are also in it, so get organizing? 😉
  • To have an awesome Domme outfit and find a sub to test it all out on….
  • Pole dancing and lap dancing should be on it as well of course!
  • Just like doing burlesque *shimmies and shakes*
  • Kissing a lot of different people is on it as well, so beware of unexpected kissing 😉
  • Going to Eroticon 2013, but being broke I might have to pout and see if I can help a company out by being my sexy self. Don’t feel shy about contacting me then! Oh yeah and *pout* I’m really friendly and hard working so pretty please? *wink wink*
  • To have sex with a celebrity! Again if you are one, I promise I won’t tell who you are if you have sex with me! Unless you’re James Deen of course, then I’d totally dedicate a blog to it! Also I’m a lot of naughty fun in bed 😉 *does pouting face* Please?
  • Also a big fun one on my list is learning how to squirt! I’ve felt the well known sensations before so I’m sure it’s there just hasn’t been stimulated enough!

To see the other fun stuff, have a look at the list and who knows, you might be on my to do list!

To all, the best of wishes for the new year and keep on being naughty!

When you see this
Crawling towards you
From over the bed
You will be in trouble

That look in my eyes
You not knowing
A grin on my face
Knowing you will be in trouble

Fetish Friday is something coming from the very sexy Cara Sutra and it’s a very good way to start the weekend!

 

Tracing your fingers over my back
Making me shiver
Wondering what you will do
A soft touch
A sharp sting
What will it be?

Fetish Friday is something coming from the very sexy Cara Sutra and it’s a very good way to start the weekend!

 

For this Fetish Friday I came up with something I haven’t done before
That’s right, I’m doing specials!
Today’s special is my foot….
