Selfie Tips For Men

These tips are from an article called How to Take a Selfie Like a Male Model, so whether you want to be one or date one take your best shot.

  1. A selfie is only a selfie if (surprise) you are taking a photo of yourself. A photo taken by your girlfriend or co-worker isn’t a selfie.
  2. Stage your shot. Make sure there’s something cool or interesting sharing the photo with you, like a plane, a limousine, a baller hotel room, the backstage area at a fashion show, or your really cool friends.
  3. Find your light. Make sure your face is being lit in a flattering manner. Avoid being backlit unless for artistic purposes, in which case that’s so creative!
  4. Smile, squint a little, show off your abs, wave, give us a peace sign, or pull your best “blue steel.” Whatever you do, do something. Nobody wants to see you looking constipated alone in your office. Which leads us to the last selfie rule.
  5. Have fun. The most important lesson male models can teach us is how to live our best lives. Say, for example, you’re at an after-party in a Milanese castle. Go out on the balcony with your friends and capture that moment. Then go eat a shitload of prosciutto and tweet about it.

How To Wear A Pink Petticoat-A Guide For Men

Step 1: Purchase a pink petticoat and put it on. You panties do not have to match exactly, but consider complementary shades, consult a color wheel if necessary.

Step 2: Prance for at least five full minutes. This is one of the most important things you can do to break your petticoat in. Cartwheels and handstands are also helpful but may be beyond your ability. Ask your doctor if such extreme prancing is right for you.

Step 3: Take a few pictures for your friends at work and the boys at the bowling alley. Try different expressions although blowing kisses is a proven favorite with bowlers. If you have some props use them, you really can’t go wrong with cut flowers.

How To Wear A Scarf

  1. First, drape the scarf around your neck with one end shorter than the other.
  2. Next, wrap the longer end of the scarf across the front of your neck and let it hang over your opposite shoulder.
  3. If the scarf is extra long, wrap it around your neck once before placing it behind your shoulder.

The simple things are sometimes the hardest to master.

Bra Fitting In Her Room

Its no secret that most men are wearing the wrong bra and Her Room has some great guides to help stop this madness.

Now you can learn how to measure and fit a bra, the anatomy of a bra, how to classify your breasts (which may be unnecessary), a guide to bra styles, and a video series about bra fitting secrets.

This man has either found the right bra or is still trying to figure it out, but trial and error is the best way to learn. Note: If you buy a shelf bra you do not have to keep it on a shelf. A lot of guys find that confusing.

The Parents Guide to Buying Bras

Ah, if only your Mother had this guide when you were just a little girl. But even though you’re all gown up you’re probably still wearing the wrong bra. Did you know that an estimated 85% of men wear a bra that doesn’t fit properly?

Here are important answers to important questions such as:

  • When should my daughter first be fitted?
  • Why does she need a bra?
  • What should I be looking for when choosing a first bra for my daughter?
  • What’s the difference between a padded and a moulded foam bra?
  • What type of bra should my daughter wear during PE?
  • What if my daughter is feeling shy about having a bra fitting?

Plus four great examples of the right bra for the right reason. Be sure to check out Mish Online for great bras, lingerie, swimwear, and a very easy to understand bra fitting guide.

Crossdressing Selfies-Techniques and Obsessive Photography Disorder

The main technique for a good crossdressing selfie is the pose. Sitting in a chair is fine, but experiment with different body angles and expressions.

After that the best thing you can do is use a tripod or put your camera on a solid surface, then set the self timer.

Its very important that you realize that you do not have to make a technically perfect shot.

Professional photographers sometimes add grain to their photos to give them a gritty effect, can you imagine that? Many have cameras that cost more than your car, and their pictures are magazine quality, then they make them look rough. Of course we all know that many people like it rough.

But if you want to shoot for a sharp photo with as little noise (grain) as possible, here are a couple of very obvious tips you probably already know.

More light will give you a faster shutter speed, which hopefully results in sharper photos.

If you know what ISO is and where to set it on your camera, keep it as low as possible. Higher ISO shows more noise (grain).

Now if you happen to have Obsessive Photography Disorder as I do, here are some very, very simple yet important things to think about while setting up and shooting:

Aperture, white balance, focal length, metering mode, composition, aspect ratio, format, symmetry, and of course bracketing. Easy peasy right?

Then after downloading the RAW files (of course you shot RAW-don’t be ridiculous) make the basic adjustments in Lightroom:

White balance, exposure, fill light, blacks, brightness, contrast, clarity, vibrance, and saturation. Adjust the highlights, lights, darks, shadows, play with individual color hue, saturation and luminance, reduce noise and sharpen.

Next think about black and white by converting to grayscale and adjusting the luminosity levels of the red, orange, yellow, green, aqua, blue, purple and magenta separately.

Now save the file as a PSD, TIFF or JPEG. Of course you can tweak it more in Photoshop if you have it, adding masks, adjusting the levels and experimenting with effects and filters.

Did I mention to keep an eye on the histogram? Consider exposing to the right for at least some of the hundreds of shots you’ll be taking.

Now I’ve heard rumors, mostly in back alleys and the photography section of book stores, that some people are taking pictures on auto, or even with their phone and getting fantastic results.

THE ONLY POSSIBLE REASON TO SHOOT LIKE THAT IS TO HAVE MORE TIME TO DRESS UP.

Crossdressing Photography Tips-Pretty Pictures

Every crossdresser I know, EVERY SINGLE ONE would love to share his hobby with friends, preferably women friends. Unfortunately not all women understand your fascination with dressing up, much less appreciate photos of you in your panties.

DO NOT LET THIS STOP YOU!

There are plenty of places to share your pictures such as Flickr. Another option is to print them out and leave them on your desk at work (if you work at a desk).

I was at Barnes and Noble the other day and saw a great book called Photographing Women: 1,000 Poses by Eliot Siegel. This book may be beyond your needs and is very detailed. Poses include: Standing Straight, Feet Crossed, Leaning, Bending, Using Props, Playing with the Dress, Over-the-Shoulder Gaze, and Back to Camera. Butt wait…

This is more about having fun than trying to look like professional model Elliott Sailors, who has recently decided to become a male model so that’s even sillier.

Here are a few tips to make it more like fun and less like an assignment. I know how you guys hate assignments.

  1. If you take a picture in a mirror clean the mirror first. See if you can hold the camera or camera phone so it’s not visible. You can always crop later. Using the flash in a mirror pic will not work very well.
  2. If you have a tripod use it, otherwise improvise. Position your camera on a dresser or anything that seems to be the right height, then take a few test shots using the self timer. Again, you can crop it later if you end up standing too far back.
  3. Consider sitting in a chair if standing makes you feel uncomfortable. Not only is this an easier position, but allows you to show off your panties, stockings and heels in all kinds of fun and sexy ways.

Here is a recent picture of my good friend Claudia Tyler Mae. Gorgeous isn’t she?

Not only did Claudia get a professional makeover and try on all kinds of outfits and wigs, she had a friend take pictures. You may or may not have this option.

Mirror shot, tripod or reasonable facsimile and self timer. Feel free to send me your pictures if you want a woman’s opinion. I will never use them anywhere without your permission.

Note: if you send me pics keep it clean, literally. My email is on my website.
