HOW TO TAKE A LUSCIOUS BUTT SELFIE

HOW TO TAKE A LUSCIOUS BUTT SELFIE

By Cy Smash

New to the art of the nude and lewd? This guide to butt selfies will walk you through everything you need to know to stage a phenomenal lewd photo with intention. Many of these principles apply to taking saucy images in general—not just booty pics.

Imagine your partner’s point of view

If your partner were there, where would they be positioned and looking at you from? Stimulate the imagination and make them think about what it’s like to be there.

For example, if someone’s about to give you oral, they’re likely positioned slightly below you looking up. That’s where your camera should be. If your face is in the photo, consider making “eye contact” with the camera, too, for extra flirtation!

(A slight aside: Dick pics taken from above with a view of the bathroom floor are often the most reviled. That’s in part because it’s not usually a position from which a partner looks at a penis before playing with it.)

Play with mirror angling and positioning

Getting a selfie directly from behind isn’t easy for everyone’s arms to handle, especially if you’re trying to capture your legs and waist in the photo and need some distance. Mirrors are great tools for angling and expanding the camera’s scope of view.

And you don’t have to limit yourself to big, vertical wall mirrors. Small ones positioned below you while you’re squatting or kneeling can be even more powerful. Why? Because the resulting photos replicate someone’s point of view when they’re about to do one of the following:

  • Eat you out from the back
  • Have you straddle their face

Consider what’s being highlighted

Focus the highlights on what you’d like to accentuate the most. If you have only one light source (say, a window or lamp), it’ll make your booty pop more if the light is on your backside rather than your front side.

If you’re not fully nude, consider wearing a dark top or light bottom. Again, highlights pop and shadows recede.

Take advantage of foreshortening

Objects closer to the camera are more prominent than things farther away. It seems like common sense, but not everyone thinks about it while taking a picture. If you’re trying to make a specific feature pop, angle it a bit (or a lot!) closer to the camera.

Arch your booty back or hip to the side, depending on where your camera is. Or, to make your legs look miles long, position the camera even lower. Tilting your head forward to emphasize your eyes is another fun application of this idea.

Strategic staging and prop placement

What’s everything besides your legs and hips doing? In photography, what you de-emphasize is just as important as what you focus on.

If you’re mainly trying to draw attention to your legs and hips, consider drawing attention slightly away from your upper body and midsection. Examples include:

  • Covering up somewhat with a pillow or blanket (à la Fergie on the cover art of The Duchess)
  • Wearing a dress that sharply contrasts with your skin tone in an upskirt photo
  • Letting long hair or a flowing cardigan drape you

Let’s wrap it up!

Taking a nude can be as nonchalant or thoughtful as you want it to be. If you’re trying to mix it up, here are the main takeaways from this post:

  1. Think about the perspective from which a partner would be incredibly excited to look at you.
  2. Big wall mirrors don’t have a monopoly on being great tools for lewds!
  3. Focus the highlights on what you want to draw attention to; choose your boudoir wardrobe accordingly.
  4. A self-portrait doesn’t have to be a nude for it to be a beautiful booty pic!
