Scott Church, a fine-art erotic photographer, will help you take some shots definitely not for the family albumPICK YOUR MOMENT
She’s more likely to consent if she feels removed from normal life – like when you’re at a hotel. And let’s be honest: a little wine won’t hurt, either.ENCOURAGE HER
Even models who are paid for sexy photo shoots perform better when told they’re gorgeous. Tell her how great she looks. And keep things light by joking around.CHOOSE POSES
Don’t expect her to go all Miranda Kerr straight away. Instead, help her pick some poses that make her feel sexy. These classics work, whether she’s naked or in hot lingerie:
* Sitting at the edge of the bed with her legs drawn up, her head resting on her knees and her chest against her thighs. Take a side shot.* Lying on her back diagonally across the bed with her head at the bottom corner. Have her raise her arms above her head and look towards you. Tell her to arch her back and point her toes.
PLAY WITH LIGHTING
Automatic flashes aren’t flattering. For a softer effect, use flashlights or position two lamps, with shades, on each side of her. Or open the curtains and use natural light – so long as the postman doesn’t get an eyeful.SET YOUR CAMERA
Switch to aperture (A or AV) mode. An aperture of 16 and a shutter speed of 1/30th of a second should work well in low light. For the best colour, set your white balance to “tungsten” if you’re using lamps. Then set your ISO: in low light, 400-1600 will work, with 400 giving you the smoothest result. (Experiment without her beforehand so you don’t kill the mood by fiddling with the camera.)DON’T LET HER PEEK
You’ll ruin the momentum if you let her look at every hot shot. Promise that you’ll show her all of them – later, when you’re both in bed.
