So you want to make homemade porn? Below are the easy steps to get you well on your way to filming some of the most tantalizing and erotic footage you’ve ever seen, not to mention experienced! Included are sure fire sexy tips to enhance even the utmost of beginners’ sex tapes!
By all Means; BE PICKY ABOUT YOUR CO-STAR!
Don't let a random one-night stand film you. Sorry to say but some a partners can’t be trusted with a sex tape (just ask the thousand women who end up having exes that go public). Record your romps with a loving partner whom you trust implicitly. You should also have at least a firm verbal agreement before making the tape. Discuss how it will go down, who keeps the tape, where and what to do with it in case you two eventually part ways.
Choose the Right Equipment!
If you don’t already have a good video camera, it may be time to invest in one before you start filming amateur porn. Poor quality video cameras tend to be grainy or pixilated, making it difficult for you to see what’s really going on in the movie. When detail is important, a good camera is essential. Why would you want to tape homemade porn when you’re not going to be able to see the saliva you had so much fun leaving on your partner?
You want a camera with higher quality than the shit attached to your computer. You can get a decent cheap camcorder for under $200. If a hand held camera isn’t what you’re going for, and insist on using a webcam, you may want to shop and compare.
If you do decide on a digital camera, make sure you have enough memory and battery life. Don’t leave yourself needing a replacement battery or memory card during production. Digital is excellent quality that won't deteriorate. Keep in mind that it's easily copied and can be distributed all over the Internet.
You should also make a tripod available in addition to filming first hand. Beware of shakiness; as no one likes to get sea sick while watching erotica.
Lighting is vital.
Ceiling lamps are idea for homemade porn. They provide decent, low-impact lighting. Lighting can be tough. Just keep this in mind; the more light, the better. If it is possible to have all your shades up (without your neighbors sneaking a peek) go for it. If not, use a lot of lamps and light some candles. You will not want to pose with the windows behind you; otherwise you will only capture outlines.
With porn lighting you want enough light to make sure the camera picks up on everything, but you don’t want the fluorescent kind that highlights every flaw. You can rent some lighting setups from your local rental agency, or you can purchase a few cheap floodlights from a hardware or home building store. Play around with different lighting examples and angles to find what works best for the both of you.
Get familiar with good editing software!
Purchase video editing software to help you with the post production fine tuning process. You really can turn something so-so into something fabulous. Just being able to cut out the scenes that you’re not happy with is well worth it, not to mention the countless other excellent, user-friendly features available now days that can give your video that certain OOMPH!
Props, Props, Props!
Decide whether or not you want to use your tried and true favorites. Maybe you want to be more adventurous for this special occasion? You may want to try them out beforehand so you can cut back on the amount of bloopers that needed edited out later. Here are some ideas that seem to work well for others:
TOYS! TOYS! TOYS!
Always use clean bed linens which are not tattered and worn. Decorative toss pillows in neutral color schemes seem to work best if the setting is in the bedroom. No matter which rooms you prefer to highlight in your production, remember to be clutter free and tasteful. You want the spotlight on you and your partner, not the stack of newspapers by your bed, children's playthings or dirty laundry strewn around.
A few things to consider prior to filming:
Shave and trim before shooting (This goes for you men too! You don’t have to go skin tight, but you don’t want to look like gorilla.)
Cover up leg marks with stockings or a body cosmetic.
Use makeup, as to not look washed out.
Familiarize yourself with remote controls, self-timers etc.
Before turning the camera on consider having a drink first. Relax, loosen up and let whatever happens happen. A glass of wine or a shot of liquor beforehand can help you relax, but don't over do it. As you know, too much booze can lead to either passing out drunk or embarrassing behavior that you definitely don't want recorded.
Make the Video Sizzle!
Sex scenes are always hotter when the woman interacts with the camera. Encourage her to talk about what she likes sexually during the video. Getting her to open up a little bit is half the fun! Having her make eye contact with the camera also goes a long way.
Cock your head a little to the side and stick your tongue out a little more so you can actually see the licking action. It’s not going to be very fun if all that can be seen is your head in between her legs.
It’s very important that you find something that flatters your body. If you’re not a big fan of your stomach, try a baby doll top that drapes beautifully over your stomach and rests at your hips. Don’t like your arms but think your legs are banging? Splurge on a mini dress with tight long sleeves that rests just below where your butt and your legs meet. High heels or stilettos are a must for every woman, simply because no matter what you’re wearing, they’ll make your legs look kick ass.
Attempt to help her reach the big O on-screen. If she is at all nervous or embarrassed about being filmed, this could be more difficult than normal. Just take it slow and do your best to make her comfortable. You can always try a couple takes and edit at the end.
BONUS: If you can’t help her reach orgasm… maybe she can get herself off or perhaps you can through mutual masturbation in front of the camera.
Make sure to talk dirty and get your partner to throw in some dramatic yet believable moaning and screaming, too.
Unless you're comfortable handing over the raw footage to an editor, post production is the time to utilize the fore mentioned editing software.
Hopefully you enjoyed this whole experience and have a film the both of you will love to watch for a long time to come. Why stop there? Now that you have one under your belt you can play around with many variations of settings, props and perhaps even role play.
