#1 Everyone has their own angle. You may have seen a beautiful nude selfie and wanted to recreate it, but it didn’t come out as planned.

Embrace the difference. [Read: How to look better naked by using 15 real life tips]
#2 Are you in the mood? Who would have thought mood matters, but it does. If you’re not in the mood to take a nude, don’t take one. It’s not going to come out well. Why? Because you’re not into it. If you’re into the idea of taking a nude, the odds are you’ll come across as more confident which means you’ll be sexier.
#3 Confidence matters. When it comes to knowing how to take good nudes and sexy selfies, confidence is everything. That’s really one of the most important elements to take a good photo. Before taking a nude, look in the mirror and point out what you love about your body.
Practice posing in front of the mirror, accentuating the parts of your body you love. It’ll help you change your entire perspective on how you see yourself. [Read: How to love your body just the way it is]
#4 Less is always more. You may be thinking that a full face of makeup with a bunch of jewelry will do the trick. But, when it comes to nudes, less is more. Some of the sexiest and most stunning nudes are when you’re completely natural and intimate with yourself. Don’t try to over pose, or else it loses authenticity.
#5 Clean up the space. You can take an amazing nude in your bedroom, but at least take a couple of minutes to clean up the underwear from your floor. You need to set the scene. If not, it’ll kill the vibe you’re trying to give which is sexy and cool. Remove things from the background that’ll take away from the nude.
#6 Choose an angle you love. You don’t need to know yoga to take a good nude. But you should spend time experimenting with different poses, seeing which one suits you the best. You’ll be able to find a pose which makes you feel the most comfortable and that will automatically have your nude come out sexier and more natural.

#7 Lighting is everything. Daylight, that is. When it comes to selfies, the best lighting is natural daylight. You may think nudes are to be taken at night, but that’s wrong. Yellow light, which is used in most homes is really unflattering. So, focus on taking nudes where you have the most natural light.
#8 Focus on your favorite features. If you’re in love with your cleavage or legs, have your nude photo on that specific body part. Whichever body part it may be, take a photo which accentuates it and makes you feel good.
#9 Maybe hide your face. Not because it shouldn’t be seen! It should be seen, but since it’s a nude, you don’t really know where it may end up one day. The last thing you want is to find your nude online, with your face in it. So, take extra precaution and hide your face. [Read: How to send nudes that sizzle without getting burned]
#10 Don’t spend time being self-critical. We all have flaws, this is something none of us can escape. When taking nudes, don’t spend too much time being self-critical about your body. The imperfections of your body are what makes you who you are. And who you are is enough.
#11 Get creative. There’s no formula when it comes to nudes. You can do whatever you want. So, why not experiment and be creative with them? You can take nudes using mirrors or different angles, which aren’t usually done. Test out what looks good for your nude.
#12 Use a timer. All phones come with a self-timer, and you should be giving it a try when taking nudes. You can place your phone against some books or on a shelf; whatever you need to give you support. Then click the timer and get ready to pose.
#13 Send them safely. If you’re going to be sending someone nudes, don’t send it to them over Twitter, Facebook, or Instagram. These platforms are hackable. Ideally, text messages or encrypted apps are your best options for making sure the only person to receive them is the person you’re sending it to.
#14 Save your photos properly. They’re nudes. Online, those photos can be very valuable for people with the wrong intentions. If you’re taking nudes, make sure you save them properly and encrypt them. If your phone or Google Photos gets hacked – all those photos are accessible.

#15 Have fun. These are nudes, not college applications. You shouldn’t be taking them too seriously. Have fun trying out different angles and lighting for your nude. If you find yourself getting stressed out, take a break from nudes. It should be an enjoyable experience, not feeling like a torture chamber.
Understanding how to take good nudes may seem like a bit of a challenge. Once you follow these tips and tricks, you’ll be taking jaw-dropping nudes in no time.
