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:

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.

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 😉

What kinky means to me is being able to enjoy the most of whatever you like to do

And for me that includes taking naughty pictures at naughty places

In the office for instance… or in the train..

Being kinky, you can always be, no matter how vanilla you really are

Just as long as you feel naughty and sexy!

This post is an entry for the  What kinky means to you competition that is hosted by the wonderful Cara Sutra

A while ago I requested pictures for my birthday (which is today ) And this is the result of that!
First of all I got some lovely, sexy, hot pictures from @jillandjackcpl @jackandjillcpl  Don’t you just want to look at their pretty pictures all the time?
Just perfect!
*lick*
Such a yummmmmy ass
Isn’t it more fun when somebody else does that?
I also got a very sexy picture from @Jephfreak This picture is bound to make wet spots.
*lick*
  I also got this sexy picture from @Yummy being just as yummy as her blog!
Certainly a lick and a grab there
And last but certainly not least I got this very sexy and drool/lick inducing picture from @BlackSilk Also makes me want to grab the screen.
*lick*
I hope you enjoy these pictures just as much as I do!
I have got to admit that I kind of stole the idea of this post from the lovely Yummy, this wonderful Lady, and the sexy Blacksilk.
My Birthday is coming up and for that I would like to humbly request pictures as a gift. Pictures of you that is, they can be anonymous or you can add your name but I expect them.
You can be creative or do anything you would like,  your choice.
I would like the pictures before January 31 so I can post them as a Birthday gift, not only as a gift to me but also everybody else. 
My humble request therefore is to send your naughty or less naughty pictures to: 
rosemonrou@gmail.com
Don’t feel shy!
