How to take sexy videos
1. Find a good place to shoot
If you want to figure out how to do sexy videos, something important you should know is that the background should be simple and free of distractions. The more the clutter in front or behind the main character of the video (that is, you) , the more complicated it becomes for your viewer to watch, as as their focus will wander between what they see on screen and other things around.
In case you already shot the video and forgot that there was clutter in the background, don’t fret, there’s still one final resort you can use. You can turn to a free retouching app like Airbrush, to blur out any mess that appears in the video. Not only that, but the app will also make the video look more professional.
It not only important to keep the background clean, but the setting overall also matters. You can make your video even more special by choosing a location that is special to you and your partner, somewhere with meaning. It could be a place where you have shared happy memories, or torrid nights – depending on the tone you want your video to have.
2. Get your best light
How to make nude videos, if not with good lighting? To start, you want to make sure that your lighting is flattering for the body type. Videos with sexual content often have dim bar-like lightings which can be nice touch but it's important when setting up shots and cameras chosen if they work well together before hand by taking some practice runs at different types of setups so there are no surprises during filming!
For people with a more curvaceous figure, it can be really helpful to use a lot of light so that your body is evenly lit and there are no shadowy areas. This will help to create a more flattering look and make you feel more confident in front of the camera. If you have a lighter skin tone, you may want to avoid using bright lights as they can wash you out.
Moreover, knowing what lighting conditions are best for filming yourself can make all of the difference in getting an accurate portrayal. If your subject is in a dimly lit room, try to film in front of a bright window. If the room is well-lit, you can turn off all of the lights and film yourself in front of a dark wall.
If you're filming yourself indoors, the best lighting conditions are usually either right before sunrise or right after sunset. This is because the sun is lower in the sky and provides a softer, more flattering light.
If you're filming outdoors, try to find a shady spot. The sun can create harsh shadows on your face, so it's best to avoid direct sunlight if possible.
If you're filming a solo video, it's important to make sure that the camera is at the right angle. You don't want it to be too low, as this will make you look larger than you are, and you don't want it to be too high, as this will make your features look distorted. The best angle is usually somewhere in the middle, so that you can show off your body without making it look unnatural.
Finally, make sure that your camera is in focus before you start filming. Nothing is more frustrating than watching a video that's blurry and difficult to see. So take a few seconds to adjust your camera's focus before you start rolling.
3. Decide on your fit
Just because you’re filming a naughty video does not mean that you should be naked. You can, of course. In fact, it could be the end goal, but how about starting clothed and slowly peeling off the layers one at a time? That would add an element of tease and make the video more interesting. Or you could just stay clothed for the whole video (sexy is an attitude after all, isn’t it?)
If you choose to do a dance video, you could pick a skimpy outfit that is revealing but at the same time allows you to move. Fully naked with simply stockings and heels is another good option. Think of the possibilities and decide on your wardrobe thoroughly!
4. Music, or no music?
Adding music to your video can be a nice touch and something to consider. If you’re doing a stripping or dancing video, then best bet is to play music during the video. Think of a slow, seductive song that will successfully suit the situation and message you want to get across.
5. Know your poses
It’s hard to know what poses will make you feel and look sexy. But if we're being honest, there is no right or wrong answer when it comes down to how one should naturally pose themselves in front of the camera for an amateur video. The best thing that anyone can do before they film their first time doing this type of project (whether professional/amateur) would be practice different angles and expressions so as not have too much difficulty adjusting during post production process, which includes editing together all footage captured within each scene plus adding music track where necessary.
If there are specific body parts that you’d like to highlight, then you must keep those in the front and center with a pose that you can comfortably maintain.
Some people like to be completely in control when it comes to how they look on camera, while others are more spontaneous and let the flow of the moment guide them. There are pros and cons to both approaches but ultimately it's up to you what makes you feel most comfortable. If you're not sure, try out a few different things and see what works best.
6. Think of the content
Now it’s time to think of what you will actually do in the video and come up with sexy video ideas. Will you just show your body in a sensual manner, will you do a strip tease, or will you dance?
If you choose to do a strip tease, you can start by walking slowly either towards the camera or away from it, and then turn and face it. You can caress your body and glide your fingers up and down until they find something to unbutton. Another move you can do is a hair whip. Then, as you’re removing your clothing in a rhythmic manner, you can also dance to the beat of the music. You might or might not end up completely naked. Stripping yourself down to your underwear can also be a possibility.
Maybe you just want to touch yourself, play with a toy, or spank your ass. Or how about just doing just some dirty talk? You can combine it with one of the just-mentioned options, or do it by itself. Dirty talk can be particularly helpful if the video you’re making is for a long distance lover, because it’s fun and it can get them in the mood, even if you’re far physically.
Attempt to let the dirty talk come organically. Consider the activities you want to engage in with your partner. Discuss your past bedtime adventures with them and any dreams you may have. Also mention your partner, address them directly. Describe what makes your lover attractive to you when you talk about how sexy they are. Call them by their name. It’s also a good idea to masturbate while talking nasty if you feel comfortable doing in front of a camera. This can convey to your lover that you find them attractive.
6. Be careful when sending the videos
If you created a video for a lover or partner who lives far away, be cautious when sending it. There are many easy methods you may utilize to safely communicate sensitive data.
You may share files and movies with Dropbox. Despite being an online service, it is somewhat secure because all user information is encrypted.
Remember that it is best to convey critical information in person. If your companion is unable to play DVDs, you might want to think about downloading the video on a USB drive.
7. Enjoy and have fun!
There’s no point in discussing how to record a sexy video, if you’re not going to enjoy the process and aftermath. At first, getting naked in front of a camera can be uncomfortable and awkward, but just relax and don’t take yourself too seriously or put too much pressure on yourself to act sexy. Regardless of who the person who will receive and watch the final video is, they want to see you being authentic and acting natural. So before anything else, think about what you’re comfortable with and find your style.
Along with the more technical factors at play, keep in mind your own emotions, preferences, and state of mind. As long as you're actually having pleasure generating your material, all the rest doesn’t matter. Being yourself is the most important thing, people will really enjoy it when it’s you just being you. Even if you think that your videos will look silly and unprofessional, the receiver will still like them if you’re being your most authentic self.
So, if you're not an expert, don't worry. That might even make it more hot to start with!
