The basics for a perfect nude selfie

Anyway… You can be an expert in all of the above, but if you don’t master the basics, you’ll always be in trouble. And by “the basics,” we mean those fundamental sales tactics, the ability to interact with potential customers through direct messaging, and, most importantly, the art of capturing a nude selfie that exudes sexiness. 

If you’ve never taken a nude selfie focused on a large audience (because, yes, it’s very different from a nude selfie you send privately to your lover, lol).

Let’s spare you the explanation of why this is vital: the harsh reality is that the higher the quality of your content, the more subscribers you’ll get, the longer they’ll stay, and the more generous they’ll be with their contributions. On the contrary, poor-quality images will stamp your followers out, ruining all your promotional efforts and reversing any growth you’ve achieved.

You’re going to read lots and lots of OnlyFans blogs that teach you how to make great quality content and look like a hot porn star… but we’re going to tell you the truth. Unless you’re already an established celebrity, that’s not the best type of content to grow on OnlyFans. Believe it or not, on this platform, amateur wins… big time.

You see, OnlyFans consumers are often motivated by a certain “morbid” curiosity about the intimacy of the people they subscribe to. That was really the foundation stone of the platform at the time of its creation and that’s why in its early days the boom of knowing if your neighbor had an OnlyFans or not, had become the best advertising campaign the brand could have.

That’s why you shouldn’t get carried away by the idea that to be successful on OnlyFans your content has to look like that of a Playboy model? because nothing could be further from the truth.

Of course… within the “amateur” you should aspire to a basic quality of photos, in terms of good lighting, and a decent camera. Don’t worry… we are simply referring to issues that can be solved with free natural light from your window and a smartphone or iPhone with a good camera. Easy, you see?

(Don’t miss this guide if you want more detail on the basic technical equipment to take good photos).

Another very important thing is that the level of “amateurism” your content should have or not will really depend a lot on the niche you have chosen.

(If you don’t know what a niche is on OnlyFans, access this complete guide to discover them and choose yours).

I mean, if you are in the “Girl Next Door” niche, you should keep your amateurism level to the maximum, because the essence of that niche is to show real and natural photos of a normal girl living her day to day life. On the other hand, if you’re in the Kawaii/Cosplay or BDSM niche you might want to pay a little extra attention to the lighting to achieve more “artistic” or “artificial” photos. But come on… unless you’re looking to produce unnecessarily professional editorial content, we assure you that all types of content can be achieved in your bedroom with the right tools.

It’s worth noting that in this guide we’re only going to focus on NUDE content (whatever the niche). We’ve already talked about all other types of photos in other blog articles, so take a good look at what we have for you.

Get ready, because we’re going to go on a journey full of invaluable tips on how to capture a nude selfie that will not only heat up screens, but leave an indelible mark. But before we unveil the secrets, we need to get you set up, mentally and physically, and set the stage like a director preparing the set of a blockbuster movie. Get ready, because things are about to get hot  🔥

First Steps for your OnlyFans nudes

The first thing you need to do is decide what kind of photos you want to take. It could be full nudes to sell through private messages or partial nudes to use for promotions in the feed. We recommend starting with a chosen outfit (it could be a sexy lingerie set or a dress or a costume) and gradually take the photos as you get undressed every few photos until you get the full nude photos. That way you will then have content at all levels of nudity and you can choose the photos you want to use. 

Before you start shooting with your camera, looking for inspiration and references is always good. If you have decided on a particular subject, you can search the Internet for models who have done similar things before and see if you can learn anything from them, such as angles, outfits and backgrounds that work. Save all these images in a folder on your computer to have them handy when taking the pictures. Believe us, it will be a great guide to copy the poses you see instead of wasting time making things up on the spot.

You should also think about your best qualities and how to highlight them. Finding successful models with a body type similar to yours can give you many ideas. For example, if you have a good booty, take advantage of back and down angles to highlight it. On the other hand, if you have nice breasts, high angles that show off your cleavage will work much better. 

Once you’ve planned all this and have a clear idea of what you will do, it’s time to start making you, the protagonist of the photos!

Intimate hygiene and body aesthetics

Of course, all this we will say has only one basic premise: That you feel comfortable. Are you going to be depilated in the photos? No? Your hair loose? Up? These intimate decisions should only respond to what makes you comfortable exposing yourself. Also, remember the areas you’ll want to focus on the most to get them ready. 

That is, if you are going to focus more on the face, you can do a facial exfoliation before and stylize your eyebrows for example. Or if you already know you’ll do full nudes, think about your pubic hair and how you’d like to wear it.

Remember, do what makes you feel sexy and don’t worry about what anyone else thinks – if you don’t want to shave and prefer the natural look, that’s up to you!

If you’re reading this guide hoping to learn how to take a nude selfie as a guy, this might also be about keeping your facial hair nice and trimmed – but once again, a beard or stubble can be a sexy look in itself, so don’t feel pressured.

Makeup for OnlyFans content

When preparing for a photo shoot, it’s recommended to apply a slightly heavier amount of makeup than usual. This is because images and videos are two-dimensional, meaning that some of the natural depth and dimension of your features can be lost. By applying more makeup, you can accentuate your features and make your eyes and lips stand out. A thicker layer of foundation can also help to conceal any imperfections and provide a more even skin tone in your images.

If you prefer a more natural look, you can achieve this with a light application of lip gloss, mascara, and a subtle eye shadow. These two styles are popular among OnlyFans creators, but you can also experiment with bold and vibrant colors, or even a gothic-inspired look. As long as it complements your features and aligns with your content, the possibilities are endless.

Of course, if you prefer to remain anonymous on OnlyFans and not show your face, you can skip this section entirely.

Hair Styling for OnlyFans Shoots

When creating content, the way you tie your hair back will vary. If you’re capturing body shots or videos in the bathroom, simply pulling your hair back may suffice to keep it out of the way. For a quick, customized selfie that focuses on your body, there’s no need to spend too much time – just make sure any stray hair is taken care of. However, if you’re planning a complete photoshoot, we strongly advise working on your hair volume to make it appear wild and sexy. This will enhance the entire shoot and provide a better frame for your face.

You can also consider wearing wigs. This works great in niches with costumes, or a natural colored wig if you’re trying to hide your identity.

Pro Tip: If you’re making content for direct messages where you want to give the impression that the action is happening at the moment you’re sending the message, then opt for more natural hair. Something as if you don’t have a lot of prep, so it gives a more realistic feel, as if you’ve been caught off guard.

If you have no idea about what “Series of DM’s” is or how to sell sequences on OnlyFans, you should definitely read this complete guide to make more money out of it.

The perfect outfit for your photos at OnlyFans

At first, you can make your nudes with what you have at home. Well… actually, you need no clothing for a fully nude 🤣 But as you should start with light-clothings before going completely nude, take advantage of all that sexy lingerie you wear on “special occasions” because today it will help you earn money!

But over time, you’ll need to buy new outfits because if you repeat them in your photos it will bore your audience. Not to mention if you are in a niche where outfits or accessories are the most important thing. The same goes if you use sex toys or erotic accessories… you can really engage your audience a lot by buying a new one and making a set dedicated to that.

But don’t stress at first, just naked pictures of you is already a lot of material. Your aim should be to provoke and show off your best qualities, while also leaving something to the imagination. This is even more true if you are taking photos to be used as a teaser, promotion or marketing.
In that case, they really need to grab people’s attention and fire them up, while making them wonder how much more they might see by subscribing to your OnlyFans.

The more unique content you can create, the better your position’ll be, so don’t be afraid to play with different lingerie for a change. You can play with outfits including things like: 

  • Negligees
  • Bustiers
  • Stockings and garters
  • Garter belts
  • Lace bras
  • Push up bras

Brightly coloured or even neon underwear is often a great choice, as it will stand out with your skin tone and draw attention to the parts you want people to look at.

You can also add accessories other than underwear to give it a special touch:

  • Ties or schoolgirl skirts.
  • Loose button-down shirts
  • Necklaces (to highlight the neckline)
  • High heels (always sexy!)
  • Glasses

Of course, all this without getting into the weird and wonderful world of costumes, cosplay, and the like.
If these are things that interest you, it opens up a whole universe of outfits – from Disney characters and cheerleaders to anime characters and real-life celebrities – and you can be successful with your OnlyFans accounts simply by specialising in a category like this, if enough people fantasize about that character!

If you’re wondering how to take a good male nude selfie, the best outfits might include:
A tank top or waistcoat to show off your physique.
A button-down shirt with a few buttons undone to show off your chest
A similar range of costumes and disguises, from bricklayers and lumberjacks to policemen and firemen.

Locations and Background for your OnlyFans Nude Photos

When starting out with OnlyFans content creation, a lot of it will likely be done in the comfort of your own home, particularly in your bedroom. This is a great starting point, but don’t be afraid to try out different parts of your house. With a little creativity, you can create amazing content at home. Experiment with lighting, take photos in the shower, incorporate different props like couches and beds, take themed shots in your kitchen or garden, or capture images against a plain wall. The possibilities are endless!

It’s important to keep things fresh though. If you continue to do the same things in the long term, your audience may become bored and crave something new. Your fans love to see you in different situations and places. Explicit content in public places or outdoors in nature is particularly exciting as it adds an element of risk and encourages them to fantasize about what might happen if they stumbled across you.

Living in the city can make it challenging to take good nude selfies, but it’s not impossible. You can try taking sneaky shots on the street or from a building roof. However, if you have the opportunity to visit the countryside, your options for capturing great photos increase significantly. The woods, fields, and other natural beauty spots provide beautiful backdrops. Also, taking photos in these settings can add a risqué edge to your usual acts.

Please... tidy up your escenario first! 😂

When preparing for a home photography session, tidying up the space beforehand is important. This will ensure your photos have a clean and organized visual composition, free from distracting background objects. Avoid having any clutter or unusual items in the frame which may take away from the main subject – which is you!

For example, if you’re shooting in your bedroom, clear off your nightstands and remove any unnecessary items from the area. If you’re using a mirror for self-portraits, thoroughly clean it with a glass cleaning solution and your camera lens to avoid any unwanted marks or blemishes in your photos.

Lastly, a helpful insider tip is to take photos of the location without you in it first, so you can preview the environment and make any necessary adjustments before starting your photo session.

Lighting for your OnlyFans nudes

When it comes to capturing the perfect nude, or any kind of photo in general, lighting plays a crucial role. It’s important to make use of natural lighting as it helps to soften your features and provides an even brightness.

For home photography, try to shoot during midday with curtains and blinds open, as this can help to create the ideal lighting conditions. Avoid using overhead lighting, as it can create harsh shadows on your features. For better results, you might want to consider investing in special lights such as ring lights. Even a simple lamp can be a better option than overhead lighting.

If you want to experiment with colored lighting, keep in mind that it can affect the color of your skin and clothing. Ultimately, taking great photos requires experimentation and finding what works best for you. Refer back to your collected references to determine which lighting suits your niche and always strive for the perfect shot!

Taking Your Nude Photos for OnlyFans

Videos offer various selling strategies that can cater to different audience preferences. Unlike photos, videos offer different formats and engagement tactics. Some examples include:

  • Short Clips: Ideal for teasing and intriguing customers, compelling them to invest further in longer videos.
  • Full-Length Videos: Offering immersive narratives and comprehensive experiences, catering to customers seeking a deeper connection.
  • Custom Videos: Tailored to customer preferences, personalized videos hold a premium value.
  • Series or Sequences: Dividing content into sequences allows customers to invest in incremental segments, enhancing customer engagement and retention.

By understanding how to monetize photo and video content, creators can strategically make their content offerings to drive sales and cultivate a loyal subscriber base.

A huge part of knowing how to take a tasteful nude selfie is knowing your camera settings and your best angles. If you have a high quality camera we would recommend checking out this guide to camera settings.

Phone Camera Tips for OnlyFans

For OnlyFans creators who mainly use their smartphones, there are some helpful settings that can expand their options.

One of these settings is the timer, which can prove to be an invaluable tool, allowing for capturing a wide range of angles and shots that would be impossible otherwise.

Additionally, it’s essential to master the focus feature to significantly enhance the photo quality. Investing in a tripod is highly recommended since it can be combined with the timer to capture shots from almost any angle. Lastly, many fantastic filters are available, including those on Instagram, Snapchat, and your phone’s camera.

However, it’s important to use them sparingly, as your fans love to see your natural face too!

Ensure You Have Privacy

It’s important to remember that you don’t want anyone walking in on your shoot unexpectedly, even if we already briefly covered this. If you’re shooting during the day, it’s best to avoid windows to prevent potential peeping toms. It could be as simple as locking your door to prevent any unannounced visits from housemates. Additionally, if you have pets, it’s best to keep them out of the room to prevent any distractions or mischief in the background of your content.

Objects matter here too – think about framing and try not to show messy rooms, weird objects or anything else that’s gonna draw attention away from your hoe-ness.

Creating atmosphere for your OnlyFans nudes

This is important: in photography… you can see everything. It’s no use posing well or having the best wardrobe if your “Mood” is not right, because it will show in your facial expressions or even in the tension of your muscles. Take a moment with yourself to look in the mirror… but really look at yourself. Look yourself in the eye, remember what you like about yourself. What parts of your body you find seductive? You can caress yourself a little bit, put on that music that turns you on… dance… even don’t be afraid to drink some wine or smoke a joint if you think it will help you loosen up lol.

This is a message that we have conveyed in all our articles: as much as this is “a job” and you take it with the responsibility it deserves, never forget to enjoy it as well…. as in any profession, it becomes meaningless if you don’t enjoy it or don’t like it…

Let’s face it, you are starting your own project, your own financial independence… there are plenty of reasons to celebrate and be happy with what you do.

Treat yourself to a good time even when you are creating content!

Pro tip: If you are creating customised content to satisfy someone’s request, take this time to think again about what they are looking for and how you can go further to create the ideal content for them.
If it’s more general content for your OnlyFans channel or social media, think about what you want to achieve with it and how you’re going to do it.

Your are beautiful and sexy as f*** !

KEEP THIS MINDSET ALWAYS. It may appear that some of your favorite models and creators have a talent for highlighting their best features and looking amazing in their photos. Still, in reality, it’s simply a matter of experience. 

They all started where you are now. Instead of feeling discouraged and thinking you’ll never measure up, take a closer look at their photos and determine how they’re achieving their results.

You can learn a lot just by observing accomplished models or creators and attempting to replicate their angles. Remember to keep in mind some straightforward tips, such as angling your camera slightly above your face when taking a selfie to make your face appear thinner and longer, and to include some of your body in the shot.

If you’re wondering about how to take a nude butt selfie, a great tactic can be to take a photo over your shoulder in the mirror. This has the double benefit of helping to make your back curve more than usual and tensing your butt cheeks to make them as round, firm and perky as possible.

The best poses for NUDE selfies in OnlyFans

Yes, we know this is what you wanted to get to the most. And we know because we did a research on what people search on Pinterest about OnlyFans and “Inspirational poses for OnlyFans” is one of the top searches, lol.

Here the magic is made by the angles. Not only from the camera but also from the curves you take with your body. And here the experience makes the master. If you don’t consider yourself a photogenic person, the best thing you can do to improve your poses at first is to copy exactly the poses you see in reference photos. And don’t just take one photo, take 20 of each pose if necessary, so you can make small movements and changes in between and learn those little details that make your body look better.

With practice, you will learn that light has a big influence on the volume of things… shadows “sink” things, and light “highlights” them. With this formula, try to light the bulky things and don’t light the things you want to hide so much.
For those looking for how to take a good male nude selfie, this may still be the case, but on the other hand, if it’s a dick pic you want, it might be more effective to try a low angle that will make everything look bigger.
In any case, you can use camera timers, selfie sticks, tripods, a friend or even professional photographers to achieve this. Once you find a pose that suits you and shows you at your best, you’re likely to make it part of your arsenal.
Just make sure you don’t use the same poses too much, as fans will love to see you in different poses and in ways they haven’t seen you before.
