Taking pictures of yourself in sexy lingerie can boost your body confidence and help you feel more comfortable in your own skin. Plus, lingerie pics also make a unique, sexy gift for your partner for their birthday or Valentine’s Day.
You don’t need anyone else’s help to successfully pull off a lingerie photoshoot; you can do it all on your own. If you’re not sure how to begin, use the tips in this post to learn how to shoot and star in your own lingerie photoshoot with sexy, professional-looking results that you’re proud of.
- Pick a Theme
Picking out a full-on theme for your own lingerie photoshoot might seem a little bit extra, but deciding what kind of vibe you want your pictures to have can help you steer your photoshoot in the right direction and ultimately end up with the results you were hoping for in the first place.
Lingerie photoshoots don’t have to be over-the-top. Don’t feel like you have to dress up in elaborate lingerie costumes—but also don’t be afraid to do just that if bolder, more adventurous photos are your goal. When you’re shopping for lingerie for your shoot, remember that the styles you wear can be as simple as sexy lace panties or as daring as a sexy nurse costume.
Just make sure that the lingerie you wear and the poses you choose for your pictures make you feel comfortable and confident. The most important thing is to be yourself, have fun and capture sexy photos that you can admire later without cringing.
- Use a Polaroid
In the modern, high-tech world where thousands of photos fit inside a mobile device the size of your palm and it can be difficult to ever really delete anything—chances are good that hundreds of photos and videos you’ve taken and forgotten about are still floating around somewhere in “the cloud”—it can be nerve-wracking to use your smartphone or digital camera to capture images you want to keep private.
A classic Polaroid camera can be your solution if you want to make sure that the finished product of your lingerie photoshoot stays private. These old-fashioned cameras don’t have a memory card and don’t store any evidence of the photos you take with them. They use film and print your pictures for you instantly without saving them—the printed image the camera spits out will be the only copy that exists.
Polaroid cameras have definitely made a comeback recently. They have become a hipster must-have in the last few years, and you can buy a camera—if you don’t already own one—and a good amount of film at fairly affordable prices without having to look too hard.
Plus, taking your lingerie photos using a Polaroid camera gives your pictures a mysterious, intriguing finish. They’ll be special and completely one-of-a-kind, and any lucky partner of yours that gets to see or receive them will know that.
- Do Your Research
It’s natural to feel a little awkward while taking pictures of yourself in lingerie.
To help yourself feel more comfortable and confident, don’t head into your lingerie photoshoot blind. Do some research beforehand to make sure you end up with photos you love.
