I <3 creepy self portraits!
Happy Halloween everyone!
“Just living is not enough…one must have sunshine, freedom, and a little flower.” –Hans Christian Andersen
I shot this self portrait at Hippie Hollow with my point and shoot waterproof digital camera set up on a gorilla pod attached to a tree using a 10 sec. self timer. It was beautiful out but scorching hot and best enjoyed from in the water, so I only took one shot with this set up, and I’m happy with how it came out. What do you think?
Last week I attended the amazing Woodhull Sexual Freedom Summit (I’m planning on writing a post about it so stay tuned!), and while I was there, I shot this self portrait in Bex‘s shiny new Njoy Eleven.
New life goal: get a self portrait in every Njoy toy.
Vagina goal: obtain an Eleven for myself. 3 lbs of stainless steel…
What’s the best way to cool off in 100+ degree Austin summer heat?
Taking a dip in the always cool, always beautiful Deep Eddy Pool, of course.
These were taken with an old point and shoot waterproof digital camera–I took the 1st shot, and the last 2 shots were taken by my lovely friend Berklee. (It’s hard to reach around and take a selfie of your own butt underwater, lol.)
This month’s Sinful Sunday prompt is vintage/retro, and right away I thought of this image that I shot a couple of years ago and have been holding on to. It’s a self portrait of me playing with an old film camera (taken with a DSLR and edited in a retro style.)
Speaking of film–I haven’t shot with film in ages, but I’ve been thinking about starting again. There’s one black and white film class in town that I know of that I’ve been wanting to take, but the timing hasn’t worked out so far–some people have also suggested teaching myself/making my own darkroom. I also have an old Polaroid that I could experiment with, but film for it is expensive.
A couple of weeks ago, I bought an underwater disposable film camera at Walgreens before a friend’s pool party, and I’ve shot a few sexy images on it…only to realize I’m going to have to send it off to get developed, and I’ve heard many places don’t even give you your negatives back anymore. So now I’m not sure what to do with those…
Do any of y’all still shoot with film? How do you develop it?
Of the kinky variety, of course. Ely & I in her fabulous pink room.

Day 28 of #FebPhotoFest
Ah, today is the last day of FebPhotoFest! In case you missed some of the action, here’s a summary: I posted 28 images which included 15 self portraits, 7 sex toy photos, and miscellaneous things like books and flowers that look like vulvas. All of the images were shot specifically for FebPhotoFest, with the exception of 3 throwback images (Masked, More Oral, & Lifelike.)
What’d you think? Which were your favorite images?
