      Thank you, Danny :)

  5. Couple other thoughts on lighting / composition: "Soft" light is often the most flattering to skin. A pro photographer might use a big lightbox or umbrella. You can use the light from a north-facing window for free. Or hang a lightweight white sheet over a window that gets direct sun to soften it up. "Hard" light (like a focused lamp) has its uses when you want to show off texture or profile. If your phone has a portrait mode, make use of it - playing around with what's in focus and what's not can help steer the eye to where you want your viewers to look. If you've got a regular camera, zooming in and using a wide aperture (like f/1.8) will have only a small part of the image in focus. One of my favorite recent examples of that is a picture from yesthatkat in #girls in late August (with a plant draped over her).
  6. A very well put together guide Zeph! You truly are deserving of the premium role on 7a This guide really showcases how Zeph is one of the top tier members who post in #nsfw. He is someone members should look up to when posting high quality nudes ūüĎĆ
  7. Hello all! o/ A couple people requested me to help give advice on how to post good nudes and what you need to have good image quality. I like shooting mine, I don't think it's top notch, but ultimately I had fun and it's an adventure to discover more of yourself. Note: If someone has better suggestions, tips or tricks, feel free to comment below! Much appreciated So, here it goes: General Advice: - Explore other parts of your body instead of zooming in on a specific thing. The more you show, the more possible themes and ideas, emotion and narrative you can put on those shots. - "Smirk" with your body, suggest or imply. This means using a different angle, object, clothing and some parts of yourself. - Pick an idea or a "story" and stick with it for a couple shots. Don't exaggerate, simplify. - Poses can imply movement. Example: removing a piece of clothing slowly, implies strip. Even if the image is still, make it so removing creates a line where it makes the viewer part of the image. - Crop your face, but you don't need to completely, make a suggestive bonus, tease. If the mouth shows. Smile, smirk. - Film instead of photographing if you want to make gifs or take frames for natural poses. For example, masturbation is good for this because there are moments you can't time your camera to take the shot. Record everything and take key frames as shots. - You don't need to show completely, shy can be sexy. Sometimes. - Put music, specifically dance music to make up the mood. Act like you're on a show. - Be patient. There will be times you might make more takes for this specific important detail. - Relax and have fun - Use a timed shot. Time it for 5/10 secs and rehearse what you're going to do. - Use Pinterest for boudoir pose ideas. - Use objects that may imply sexual suggestions. Food: Cherry or Peach, for example. - Bend your arms, curl fingers. Practice poses on a mirror until you understand what type of narrative you can do with your hands. That excludes fingering or jerking off. Challenge yourself. Equipment: ( Software | Hardware ) - Tripod - I highly recommend getting a tripod with a shoe mount - for a camera, like a DSLR or - a phone clamp, like this one - Here. This clamp does justice very well. - A good quality camera or smartphone. It both needs decent photo and video properties. Good bonus - Stabilization tech that the camera or smarphone has. My devices: Huawei P20 Pro or Canon 700D. - A Gif Converter App or Website - If you want to make gifs from videos. Website - Ezgif, Giphy Android - Gif maker iOS - Gif Maker - A Video Editor - If you want to take frames from footage you recorded instead of shooting. Editors - VideoPad, or Adobe Premiere Pro, if you have the moneys. - An Image Editor - There are multiple free open source programs. Editors - Gimp, for example - Articulated lamps or other - lighting is your best friend. Technical Aspect ( Light | Composition | Editing ) By: Wisco Dave In regards to "Soft" Light as per Dave mentioned, you can use vegetal paper and cover on an articulated focused lamp. Use a spare rubber band and simply create a temporary filter around the lamp. For "Hard" Light, try practicing placement on different levels of the target background. (Where you will be placing yourself for the shot), that way you can understand what works best for you and what type of body part you want highlighted. For the last two tips: Rules of Thirds - By following this reference, be sure to focus on the 4 major points of focus. If you were to make a narrative line ( from a to b) : from this example, if you were to place an object or person on the bottom left point, there is a higher chance for the viewer to follow through your story or message. In nudes: if you want the viewer's eyes from a to b on your body and object: feel free to experiment with horizontal, diagonal or vertical lines. It doesn't have to be rigorous. One other way is to form a triangle with your body, by combining three parts of yourself or an object close to you, like a sex toy. Mirrors are good for this. Imagine the same grid in portrait or landscape on the mirror and experiment. I might make this post better in the future, but right now this is all I can offer. Thank you for reading! o/
  8. It honestly depends.. Some apps can end up working out for certain people... But i find most of the time it leads to just hookups or bots trying to sell you access to a site... It's hard to debate if they work or not, because for some people it turns into something special. All about the experience..
  9. Ted Talk - Guy Winch, Emotional First Aid I decided to write this post as a means to provide this incredibly meaningful ted talk video on how you should perceive and understand yourself better - to treat yourself better. Commentary and some derivating notes: When I watched this presentation, I felt really relieved as to why and how I should actively look, ignore and provide a clear and firm posture on my long term depression, as well as my light variant of aspergers. According to Mr. Winch: - You should learn to listen and identify certain patterns that your behaviour and thought makes. - Don't fall to the false conclusion that it's as easy as treating a physical injury or other. It's harder to get in touch with, due to the undeveloped consensus of the perception of the mind you have, plus how self-love can be seen as something gradually negative, specially in teenage years. - Act quickly and exercise. Example: I ruminate a lot. It can lead to periods of depression, therefore, if I identify > exercise a method to distract myself from keeping my thoughts from buzzing on a bad subject, the urge to ruminate will dissipate. - Focus and hobby. Occupy yourself. Create a schedule. Do what you like to do. - Don't be too much time alone at home, take a stroll, breath different air. Hope this helps anyone with similar problems or even different ones. Feel free to leave any commentary
  10. Hi Guys I'm new to this group and just wanted to introduce myself.(thought about a year ago i was fairly active I took a break from the server and am just now returning) I'm in a very unsure place in my life right now. I'm not sure how I feel about sexual behavior. I grew up with it being a super unhealthy environment where it was always considered bad. I more or less always have masturbated or watched porn, but there was always a lot of guilt involved. Lately Ive been trying become more comfortable with it. Ive been watching porn more often. Ive also been seeking out online sexual encounters with women though with the understanding that i'm nervous and not at all kinky. Its been a pretty mixed bag and I have a lot of guilt. That said its been good to be able to talk openly about sex, likes, dislikes, fantasies, ect. So the reason I'm posting is this. Is this really a good plan? To just try to normalize how I feel and remove the guilt just by powering through. I mean i certainly enjoy the behavior and sometimes feel less guilt, but at the same time I don't know if this is the way to work on the issue. I feel like I can only really explore this online at the moment, because I have so much nervousness. Obviously I'm super nervous and have some anxiety about all of this. That said, I'm 26, I feel like I should work on these issues. Ive been thinking.I think one of my biggest frustrations is that, I feel like a creep by seeking out sexual stuff online. Whatever form that may take (interactive or not). I'm not sure how to seek it out without feeling a little slimy, even if I'm not actually doing anything wrong. I'm respectful, upfront, careful to understand and not cross boundaries. but despite all that there is a little bit of a feeling i get on sites like reddit or whatever when I'm seeking out anything, especially if it involves another person. I don't know how to shake that and thats actually what bothers me quite a bit. I know its not wrong to want to interact sexually, I know its normal, and I am very respectful in the way I approach it. But I always feel like I will be judged for it, or that I will be put in a box like "oh he is just another guy who only wants in my pants" even if I also want to know them as a person.
