My “Playgirl” Photo Lighting

Recently, while doing my habitual self-nude photography, I discovered how much I like to play around with the lighting in order to achieve different results.

And I must say that I am quite impressed with what can be done, photographically speaking, when toying around with the lighting. This includes using different setups with the professional photo lighting that I own, all the way to using simple daylight coming through a window (a.k.a window light)

So, here are three of my new ”Playgirl style” nude portraits that I shot using different lighting techniques and setups. The big question is, however, which photo and lighting do you prefer?

In the photo above, I used a three-point lighting setup. This means a key light, a fill light, and a backlight. In fact, the catch-light visible in my eyes is coming from the key light to the right of me. As you can see, I’m wearing only a dress shirt and a yellow tie after a hard day of work, because yes, the pants always come off first the instant I get home. This photo is bright and the details are quite visible, particularly on my erect penis and scrotum.

I’m not the biggest fan of the position of my head, particularly with the folds it creates on my neck. This, of course, is not helped by the camera looking up from a lower angle. Then again, I take solace in the fact that my head is not necessarily the focal point in this photo if you get what I mean? LOL!

In the second photo (above), I used one simple LED light through a large softbox. This, to me, makes the photo dark and mysterious. Do you agree?

In fact, it is this photo that made me realize how artistic and creative one can make their photos when playing around with different lighting setups.

Finally, in the third photo, I am posing naked from the waist down, on my bed, using simple window light. And yes, I promise that I woke up like that! LOL!

Again, I am curious to know, which one of the three photos and lighting do you prefer?

Now, I should mention, that while I do intend to eventually get back to my roots of blogging about my nudist activities and lifestyle, for the time being I am enjoying producing and sharing these naked ”Playgirl style” photos from my ongoing nude photoshoots.

And while sharing photos that put my erect penis on display may deviate somewhat from my past blog posts about simple non-sexual nudity, I must say that doing so has given me a certain confidence in myself that I was previously lacking. There are times when I have turned down opportunities with the opposite sex simply because I was afraid that the woman in question would judge my penis, or not like the size and shape of it. I think this may be something that other men have also experienced, most likely relating to what is called “penis size anxiety”. On that note, this is probably a subject that I should blog about in the near future.

Meanwhile, life is fragile and precious, and tomorrow is never guaranteed. And that is why I’m happy to be a “Playgirl” while I still can.

    NJ, I like them all, but I must say I most like the third one. At the same time, I enjoy seeing you differently with the varied lighting. All good.

    For me, the pose, camera position, lights and lighting all seem to work best in Number Three.

      Thank you for the vote Gerry! So far #3 seems to be the preferred by all those who have voted here and on my Snapchat. So I should probably produce more of this style if photo, LOL!

    And I really must thank you for the privilege of being able to see your magnificent penis fully erect.

    If you use artificial light sources πŸ’‘ for a photo, then that is always part of a staging, and staging is mostly problematic, unless you are actually a photo model with a 35 cm dick πŸ†. So I would always keep the setting as natural as possible.
    As far as the aspect of light is concerned, Photo 1 actually turned out perfectly. The focus of light and sharpness is exactly on the tip of your dick as it should be πŸ‘. Photo 2, on the other hand, doesn’t seem “mysterious” as you say, but just underexposed πŸ™, and you should be able to be recognized, I guess. My favorite is definitely photo 3 because it looks very natural overall, both in terms of the even light, in terms of the surroundings, and in terms of your pose. A guy with a boner is generally more likely to be found on the bed than on the sofa. πŸ˜‰
