Webcam modeling is not all about doing live video performances. It’s a combination of live shows and social media marketing. You can’t expect people to know you if you don’t market yourself. And adding a nude or sexy selfie on your social media is one of the best ways to promote yourself. You can also pull in more customers from posting nudes on camming subreddits. Plus, you can earn extra money by selling your nudes on websites like OnlyFans. But you’re expected to take and post only your best naked selfies. Mediocrity is not tolerated here, especially if you’re going to sell them. This is, after all, part of your marketing strategy.
How to Take Good Nudes
Here are some of the best tips and tricks you can use to take amazing nudes.
1. Natural Light is Always Better
The best time to live stream a webcam show is at night when there are a lot of paying customers. But nobody said you should also do your nude selfies at night. The best time to take nudes is in the morning when Mr. Sun is up in the sky. That’s because natural light looks better on bare flesh than artificial light. It also offers a softer glow that doesn’t create sharp shadows in the wrong places.
Of course, we’re not suggesting that you take your nudes outside—unless you’re adventurous that way! Just find a well-lit corner of your room and snap away. Somewhere near the window is the best. Just be careful not to flash your neighbor your naked butt. If your room doesn’t get enough natural light, you’ll have to make do with what you have—or you can use good lighting equipment. However, make sure to avoid overhead light, as this can create a nasty shadow in the boob area.
2. Find the Best Angle
To find the best nude positions, you need to consider the context of your nudes. A straight-forward frontal shot of your body without using any angles is best when you’re going for a classy photo. It’s really an excellent way to showcase your natural physique exactly as it is, showing that you’re confident in your own skin.
If you want to look extra sexy, butt selfies (belfies) are sure winners. A close-up shot of your butt from behind can make your waist look tiny. However, you’ll have to do some twisting and turning to get an amazing belfie. This is where a selfie stick comes in handy.
3. Get Creative
Your body is best presented when standing upright. Plus, you get to avoid the unsightly rolls or flab when you sit down. But that doesn’t mean you should just stand there naked while taking your picture. Be creative. A PG-13 movie kind of nudity will only work so many times before it gets boring.
If you’re having a hard time taking your picture, you can use a mirror. There are a few mirror tricks you can do to take your selfies to the next level. For example, tilting a movable mirror at a 70-degree angle can make your body look leaner and longer. You can also try pushing one hip to sharpen your waist and highlight your curves. Another great idea is to do a half-turn to showcase your butt. When in doubt, always add a butt.
Here’s a little secret. Mirrors are great for taking selfies, but they’re not necessary. Even if you don’t have a mirror, you can still take amazing nudes. You just have to be extra creative. For example, the belly-flop nude is one of the best ways to highlight the curve of your butt and back. This makes you look super sexy even when you’re feeling sleepy or bloated. What you need to do is lie facedown on your bed and either place a pillow underneath your thighs or bend your knees. This will push your butt up. Another simple but creative mirror-free nude selfie hack is sitting on the side of your bed and taking the photo from above. This helps highlight your thighs and chest. Plus, it’s so easy to do.
4. Check Your Background
It doesn’t matter how hot you are in your photo if your background is a mess. This is actually one of the biggest pitfalls of taking any kind of selfie. So always check if there are dirty laundry, trash cans, litter boxes, dirty dishes, or a toilet in your background before taking your nudes.
Taking naked photos with the wall behind can help ensure that you don’t accidentally capture unwanted items in your photos. However, that can make your pictures look a little bland. Some of the things you can include to make your nudes stand out are candles, books, plants, decorative lamps, and clean furniture. You can also use props, such as flowers, fruits, and even a rope. Of course, you need to arrange them in such a way that they don’t take the focus away from you.
5. Tuck It in and Hold It Up
Every camgirl knows how to take boob pics. But only a few know how to do it well. To make your cleavage pop, you can try the tuck-it-and-hold-it-up trick. You can tuck your elbows under your boobs and push them boobies up a little. It’s not the most comfortable position, we know! But if you suck it up and snap the picture at the right angle, nobody will have to know how much effort you put into that boob shot. The only catch to this trick is that you need to make it look as natural as possible. Otherwise, it ruins the illusion.
You don’t need a professional photographer to get professional-level nudes. You just have to be creative. You can experiment with different angles, lighting, and positions until you find the right combinations. But the most important thing you need to learn when taking nudes is for you to feel sexy. Focus on things you love about your body and accentuate them instead of trying so hard to hide the parts you don’t like.
