how to take sexy picture?

So what makes a picture sexy?
Is it showing a lot, showing a little, teasing? I'm just really curious because I don't really know what makes a photo really sexy. Is it what your wearing? How much your not wearing? I'm looking for any tips or pointers.

By definition, it's sexy if it turns you on. Might be total flesh, or only eyes, or fingers, or even toes or ears, or maybe only a highlighted outline, a suggestive curve. Edward Weston famously shot very sexy pictures of sensuous vegetables and no, not inserted into orifices.

Of course your turn-ons may not match others. Our kinks are our own. I see many 'erotic' images that definitely do not turn me on. Follow your heart.

I think leaving something to the imagination is important ...it's about the thought of things to come

Turning it monochrome never hurts

Look at pictures you find sexy and try to work out why

This is a thread on the playground about sexy imagery you might like it http://forum.literotica.com/showthread.php?t=1171415

Agreed - one of my husband's favourite photos of me shows the least, but the facial expression in it (I can't emote on demand) and the amount of tongue visible makes it almost obscene.

So did Georgia o' Keefe - her flowers are extremely suggestive. I'd agree that it's mostly in the eye and the mind of the beholder though; start with what you like looking at, or with the tastes of the recipient.

And have fun - what looks so so in normal colour can look spectacular when reduced to 2 colours, cropped in, or solarised.

The more you play with the viewers imagination the sexier it gets especially if you do a sexy pose or make a sexual position where you are naked but your nipples and sex are hidden like in the Italian photogragh where the models are nude but the most sensitive parts are covered by their bodies, hands or arms.

Greetings and Happy New Year,
I haven't been "here" in a little more than a year, I never thought that would happen given the fact that I used to visit daily!
So what's the protocol these days? I would like to share with you a pic on which I've received tons of compliments because I'm told, it's unintentionally unexpectedly sexy and erotic.
Is it ok to post here?
Don't want to have anyone think I'm hijacking the thread!

1. When you're taking a selfie in the mirror, check to make sure that the focus is set correctly. A lot of cameras with auto-focus will focus on the surface of the mirror to set the distance, resulting in a blurry image.

2. Nothing says "amateur" like red-eye.
