A Happy Accident
Roxy gave me the task to find a secluded spot in nature, take off my top and spread my arms so as to let my nipples feel the breeze. I’ll write about that in a separate post, but while I was there, I thought I might as well sneak in some extra pictures. I hadn’t brought my actual camera though, as it requires me to work with a timer, so instead, I used my phone, which I balanced on top of a very unstable bush. This picture was taken as my camera slipped and tilted, but didn’t quite reach the ground (thank god). It was quite a happy accident because look at the sky it captured!
I studied media design, which included print, web design, animations, video and in my first year, also photography. I was doing this degree because I love video editing and playing around in After Effects. I did not like the photography class at all. I don’t think it was so much photography itself but the classes were boring and I very actively disliked being sent out to take some photographs. I know most people would enjoy the thought of that but the themes were again, so boring. After we returned to class, the teacher would always look through the photographs with us individually and somehow, he always liked mine. I tried to get good photographs but I certainly didn’t put in as much effort as I did for literally all the other subjects. Ironically, apart from video and animation classes, I got the highest marks in photography.
When my dad got a reduced-priced Canon he was crazy enthusiastic about it and thought I might want one because of my degree and all. I told him I didn’t want one because I hated photography lol, but then got one later as I figured it’d be useful for video too. I realised that photography isn’t all that different from video as it’s all about the framing, which is something I love doing. When I got my camera, coincidentally, I also travelled to South-Korea as my then best friend was studying there for a year and I could stay with her for a month. We had the most amazing time and visited most of the tourist spots as well as my first ever gay pride! I took about 5000 photos while I was there and was found my love for photography.
I enjoy taking pictures on holidays and in nature, but as I haven’t travelled anywhere for a few years and don’t tend to specifically go out for photographs, I stopped using my canon. I had been feeling guilty about it because my dad had bought me the camera but now suddenly I use it all the time and it’s thanks to this blog! The downside is that I can’t tell him about it because you know. Me: So I’m finally making good use of my camera! Him: Awesome, let’s put them in a slideshow and play them on the TV screen. Me: Erm…
I much prefer taking pictures with my canon as I have control over the iso and the focus and the quality of the pictures is simply better. The one downside is that I have to work with a timer as the camera is too old for Bluetooth remote control.
I think I love the creativity of photography and capturing the perfect shot. I don’t think I can quite capture the perfect shot, but it’s fun trying and these erotic photographs make me feel so free. The more pictures I take, the easier it seems to get. I like that I can just play around and do my own thing. Hopefully, I can do something like this with a friend or a photographer sometimes. It would take away my frustration when one of my pictures turns out to be out of focus, and it would make it easier to get my body in the right position, which is hard sometimes in 10 seconds!
My favourites Sinful Sunday Pictures from last week
Natural in Nature by BlueSubmission
What’s more natural than nature? Especially in combination with some nudity! Bluesubmission captures this amazing shot of sideways lying facing gushing water. The wet rocks, the green trees and the water really touch upon that natural feeling and her pose, and flowing hair emphasise this. She merges in with nature flawlessly.
Decisions by Krystal Minx
This blue top is sooo nice especially when you lift it up so that the light can properly shine through, which is exactly what Krystal did. Her body shape comes out so well. It’s very erotically attractive picture.
Through The Looking Glass by Discovering Kink
Considering last week’s theme of unedited, Raven managed to capture a great picture, which I’d think would usually be one you’d have to edit. The focus is on point, as well as the subject in the middle. I really like how the reflection in the mirror is upside down, while the reflection in the mirror behind is upright.
Barely There by A Leap of Faith
I love how her tattoo and panties get a lot of attention in this picture. Her feet look very elegant in this position and I like where the frame cuts off and how the light comes in from that angle.
