How To Make Great Profile Pictures For Swinger Sites – Part 2

(This post is a continuation of this previous post on profile pics for new swingers on swinger websites such as CouplesTouch.com and Lifestylelounge.com.)

A couple of days ago, we discussed some of the things to watch out for when it comes to putting pictures in your profile. Now lets discuss some tips for taking better pictures when you decide to do that sexy new photo shoot!

Have Fun!

When you decide to do a photoshoot, make a night of it. Send the kids off to the sitters and set up the shoot in the house or at a fun location where you can be totally relaxed and not hurried. Buy a nice bottle of wine and have some of your favorite music playing in the background. Very rarely do we have a photoshoot that is not interrupted by some very hot sex at some point. If you are relaxed, happy, and excited it will show in your photos!

Let There Be Light!

One of the first tips you will read on any photography website is to use more light when taking your portraits. The flash that comes with a camera is adequate for most candid photos, but for good quality portraits usually more light is needed. Go to Lowes or Home Depot and purchase some simple construction lights that are relatively inexpensive. Don’t necessarily aim all the lights at the subject. Try bouncing some off the ceiling and some off the wall behind the subject. This will help diffuse the light and remove shadows.

Take Pictures Until Your Fingers Bleed!

Congratualtions World, we have entered the digital age! This means there is no extra cost associated with how many pictures you take, and erasing is simple. Take multiple pictures of every pose you decide to do, or just keep on taking the pictures while letting your sexy subject pose however she wants. If you end up with a hundred or more photo’s who cares, statistically your chance of having some great photos in the mix are increased with the more pics you take!

 

Use Photo Editing Software!

While we are absolutely against doctoring your photo’s to trim a few pounds or hide the unibrow across one’s head, we have no problem with using software to crop pictures or adjust the tint and color. Many times when taking a photo, you may have a great shot where unfortunately some piece of it did not turn out. Maybe the cat was running through the shot, or the way the subject is sitting makes her fell like her butt looks big. There is nothing wrong with cropping a photo to maximize it’s appearance. Editing software will also allow you to do some really neat things like, using black and white or a combination of black and white with color. Other effects may be blurring, glow effects, graininess, etc…

Props and Backgrounds!

We have so much fun setting up our photo shoots. Usually the day before or so we will head to Wal Mart, Lowes, Party City, or adult novelty stores looking for props, backgrounds, and sexy outfits. We tend to splurge and will spend sometimes over a hundred dollars or more buying little things to make the shoots fun. While that may be a little much for some tastes, you can do a lot with just a little bit of money as well. Buy some big white sheets to hang as backgrounds and to lay on the floor to make the subject stand out. Buy some flowers, ribbons, or other items to use as props. We have bought everything from angel wings, flowers, and flags to even a long PVC pipe wrapped in red electrical tape to look like a candy cane for a Christmas shoot!

Quit Worrying About How Bad You Think the Photos Look!

It never fails that at some point in the photo shoot Mrs. SwingWifes will tell me, “this pose looks stupid”, or “sitting like that will make me look fat.” I always have to remind her to relax we can delete that photo if she does not like it. I can’t tell you how many times when we are done, that pose she hated is the one that produces some of our favorite pictures. The point is don’t worry about anything in the moment and experiment to your hearts content. The only people who are going to see these pics without your approval are you and your spouse. If either one of you is going to be affected by the appearance of a big butt, belly roll, or cheesy grin, you most likely are not good candidates for swinging to begin with.

Pose Like the Stars!

A couple of tips for when you are doing your posing. When taking the picture push your chin towards the camera. Moving your face forward helps the face frame better on the body, without the skin from your neck giving the appearance of a double chin or fatter face than you actually have. This is really important if taking pictures from a level below the subjects face, as it really pronounces these effects. Have good exaggerated posture when you are sitting or standing in a pose. Chest up, shoulders straight, and suck in. Taking a good deep breath during the picture will help you do this. No matter what kind of shape you are in, you will be surprised how much sexier you look in a photo where you are doing these things. Remember your Mom has told you many times….”No one likes a slouch!”

If All Else Fails…Cheat!

Find a couple on your swinger website that has great photo’s, and flat out ask them if they would be interested in meeting you and possibly doing some pictures together. Mrs. SwingWife and I love taking pictures and doing photo shoots. If we had a sexy couple ask us if they could do a photoshoot with us, we would be excited and enjoy doing it. There are few better icebreakers before playing with a couple than taking sexy pictures together. We would love to give them a heads up next time we were doing a photo shoot so they could join in! As a matter of fact Mrs. SwingWifes and I have been toying with hosting a photo party, where we invite a bunch of sexy friends over in their sexiest outfits and neatest props. Letting everyone just take pics and pose to their hearts content. Something about all those sexy people posing makes me think the party would probably lead to more than pictures….. 🙂

As both Mrs. SwingWife and I are extremely amateur photographers, I am sure we have left out a bunch of useful tips and tricks. If you have some good ideas or critiques on some of ours lets hear them!
