The in depth nude guide: phone & Camera edition.
In the past year of my life, I have taken THOUSANDS of nude photos, sexy photos, and professional photos. It’s no secret, you can find them here on my website, my Instagram, and probably many other obscure places on the internet. While I don’t have some sort of magic degree in taking nudes, I can say.. I’m pretty fucking experienced. If I’m going to be posing and strutting the meat suit with no clothing on, it’s going to be articulated just as highly as art is. Incase you weren’t aware, I shoot 90% of my own photos from a phone, camera, and tripod + light editing. If I can do it, you can too.
While there is definitely a certain appreciation to the traditional nude photo snap of your phone, I’m taking you to the next level. You will be studying art history, angles, lighting, poses, and most importantly: falling in love with yourself.
Do it for You
Why take and put so much effort into nude photos? First and foremost… do it for you. If you aren’t drooling and obsessing over your own nudes, then you are missing the whole point. Don’t even consider sending your photos over to someone else until you have fully appreciated the divine, sensual creature that you are first. Your nude or “sexy “ photos can be done however you like, and wearing whatever makes you feel like a sex-pot ready to get the orgasm they deserve.
Photographing Your Genitals.
A photo of just your genitalia is honestly not that appealing- they look like medical book photos waiting for observation. We aren't usually attracted to just the look of the genitals, but the person with them. It's the entire picture that makes an artistic, sexy, or naughty feel come together. I am telling you this now, because I'm giving you instruction on how to construct the whole photo. Yes, I'm that annoying bitch that believes in tasteful, well put together nudes because it shows effort: and you can hang them on your walls!
Phone with Camera
DSLR or Mirrorless Camera
Tripod for either (optional, but strongly recommend with a camera)
You can purchase lighting if you want to. I have this ring light that I use for Youtube videos, product shots, and of course… some nudes.
The Julieta Chiara Nudie Golden Secret: Contrapposto
I know what you came here for: the secret. How does one take the perfect nude or sexual photo? How does it all come together? History has the answer, and I will carry the legacy.
Contrapposto, better defined as "an asymmetrical arrangement of the human figure in which the line of the arms and shoulders contrasts with, while balancing, those of the hips and legs.”, was a concept I fell in love with during high school. In my art history class, I found my favorite art piece which is Michelangelo’s David: the perfect example of Contrapposto, a stiff, marble slab somehow standing so effortlessly and relaxed for all to awe at.
When I started modeling and doing photoshoots, I realized how stiff I originally looked in front facing or standard poses. There was no curves in my body, it looked too staged, there was no “passion” or “emotion” in how my body shot. That is until I studied Contrapposto, and apply it heavily to my current photos. It shows so much balance, flow, and a unique sensuality that can’t be achieved by stiff “power stances”. When you are standing, simply drop one of your hips to create a straight angle. Keep your waist horizontal, in the same spot. Play with your shoulders to make an even tilt to match your hip. Incorporate your hands and arms to create some motion: An instant panty dropper.
I have put the lines that represent Contrapposto in the below photos so you can mimic them.
Contrapposto heavily accredits its beauty to creating angles, and knowing our angles makes a huge difference in the quality of photos we shoot. When we find our angle, it’s usually the one we will gravitate towards and use to our advantage. This means playing in front of the mirror or front camera, creating shapes and different poses with your body to see what fits.
Every body looks good in Contrapposto. When fully naked, the lips of the vulva are gloriously showcased and I highly recommend this body shot for dick pics.
Some rules of thumb in my photography are…
Upward Angle: Shooting from an upward or almost “underneath” angle is meant to ENLARGE and exaggerate what’s in front of the screen. Take for example this booty pic. You could shoot straight on, or tilt your phone underneath your ass to show the curves and size of your glorious cheeks. If naked, this is also a great opportunity to show off some tasteful side puss and lips. SHOW. THEM. CHEEKS.
Downward Angle: Shooting from an downward angle can create amazing depth and is something I usually use to ELONGATE the body. A simple angle change like this can make the difference between a double chin or a hot, long body shot. If you want to get wild, this would be a good shot to have your hands down on your goodies, grab a titty, or use a toy on yourself. Even the smallest tilts will change dimensions, see these examples!
Create Curves: Straight lines can make a body look really stiff and tense. In more sexual poses, we usually see movement of the hands, legs, angle of the glutes, and the beautiful curve of the spine. Without any angles, the photo is painfully flat or awkward. When you are photographing yourself, use your body to create curves, peaks, and valleys: that’s the fucking beauty of the human build. *if you angle booty more towards camera, we again run into excellent pussy shots* Check out this massive difference.
