number one thing that porn studios are going to look at when they decide
to offer you a interview, test shoot or job is the picture(s) that you
send to them.
Even the big studios
do not expect you to send professional pictures, however that does not
mean you cannot make the photos that you send look polished. Here are
some tips on how you can achieve that-
- Camera Tips
Digital cameras have tons of settings to make your pictures turn out
just as good as the professionals. If you've never tried photography,
stick to the automatic settings; but if you're familiar with your camera,
try playing with the features and manipulating settings such as F-Stops
and Iso, which control your shutter speed and how much light your camera
- Getting Ready
Before you begin, check out an erotic website or magazine to get an
idea of what types of poses are most flattering and sexy. This is also
a great way to set the mood.
- Remember - Nude,
While it is all right to send more than one picture, porn talent scouts
are looking at the nitty gritty and it is best not to have at least
one picture that you send where are completely nude.
- Look Your Best
Hair, nails and body should be clean and well groomed.
- Create Your
Take time to straighten up and find a nice background. Using a backdrop
that has a solid color can be a good idea as it will make the focus
of attention be you. Use a sheet or bedspread behind you. You can get
fancy and purchase kinky items such as whips and paddles at an adult
store, or play around with stuff at home; simply straddling your
kitchen chair is sexier than you think. If you really want to get into
it, you can purchase a paper background from a photography store or
drape fabric that's rich in texture and color over your couch. Red and
white are great colors to work with on film.
There's nothing sexy about posing naked if you're not comfortable or
in the moment; if you don't feel sexy, your pictures won't look sexy.
Set the mood depending on what type of photos you want to take. If you're
going for an innocent, romantic feel, light some candles and play soft
music. If you're looking for something a little hotter or kinkier, put
in something faster that gets your blood pumping. Of course, a cocktail
or two never hurts, either!
- Have Good Lighting
Talent scouts are looking for a picture that will show them what they
are going to see when they meet you. It will be a waste of time if you
hide what you really look like in the shadows. Play around with the
lighting in the room by removing lampshades and even a rose colored
light bulb to give a flattering light. Avoid florescent lighting as
it is not used in filming and makes even very attractive people look
- Market Your
Pictures To The Studio
If you want to work for a company that wants a more natural look, then
keep pubic hair and trim sparingly. If you are want an audition for
a professional model look, then you may want to use a more trimmed or
shaven look. If you want to audition to different studios you may want
to take a variety of pictures based on those various styles.
- Make It Easier
Have a photographer that you trust or close friend who does not mind
taking the pictures for you, assist you in this photo session. You could
also use a tripod and a self timer.
thing to keep in mind is that studios looking for A-list porn
stars prefer that their actors do not have tattoos. If you
are considering getting one- don't. If you have one, consider
removal or not featuring it. If you are not shooting for the glamor
of an A-list porn star status, this may not be an issue.
