Sinful Sunday

It's all about the image

Sinful Sunday Week 225

The prompt for 2nd August 2015 is: Vintage/Retro

This could be an image of something vintage or retro if that tickles your fancy but my main reason for posting this prompt is to try to inspire you to create an image, through a mixture of both composition and post production editing  that results in an image that has a retro/vintage feel. Don’t think your image has to be edited in sepia tones either, as you will see from the examples on this page, colour images can be made to look retro too.

Sinful Sunday is all about the image.

Each week I write a Sinful Sunday weekly round-up highlighting my top 5 images from the previous Sunday. All images used are fully credited and linked back to the original post. If anyone objects to having their image used in the round-up then you need to let me know, otherwise I will assume that by taking part you are happy to be featured on the Sinful Sunday site.

One last thing before you go I can’t urge you enough to please comment on people’s work, no matter whether you are a fellow blogger or a consumer of their work I can assure you that all the people who leave their links on this page want to hear what you have to say.

Sinful Sunday Weekly Round-up 224

One last reminder, this weekend will be August and so time to reveal your images for this months prompt – Sinful Sunday August Monthly Prompt and now I will hand over to this weeks guest writer who is the lovely Indy Jones from The Shingle Beach

Indy’s top 5 Pics of the Week

“I squeaked. Then I squealed. I wanted to tell everyone, only I could very quickly imagine the scene as I tried to explain to my non-Shingle friends how big a deal Molly asking me to do the round up was, and just why she was asking me…
All these amazing people, contributing all these amazing images, such positive and supportive feedback, and the amazing bloggers Molly gets to do the roundup – so yes, just why was she asking me?!?

Once I’d got over the giddiness…
It turns out I’m quite a simple creature.
I love curves: bodies that – ironically, despite how long it took for me to see the beauty in my own – have the same generous ins and outs as I see in the mirror, whether natural or assisted by underwear.
I’m a sucker for bottoms, shapely legs, the beautifully lit and the slightly noir.
I make no apology for the fact that my choices for this week’s roundup reflect those likes so strongly – but then it’s like you lot knew those were the buttons to push…

Understanding Flutterby

Woman crouching down in corset

Maybe it does deserve a better title, but a rose by any other name etc. It’s no secret that I’m rather partial to corsetry and stockings, and this is a beautifully dark, sexy, confident take on that look. Two images this week made me think of Frank Miller’s Sin City: this is one dame you don’t cross. And the boobies themselves? Pert, full and perfect. I love the way they catch both light and shadow, demanding closer attention.

Sex is my New Hobby

Naked woman on chair

I once tried doing something like this, and just got stuck. Bah.
It’s very clever making the chair the focus of the image. Does anyone else see twin stylised female figures in the negative space created by its back piece? And then, *just* out of focus, the more subtle, but more beautiful, figure of our real subject – and that tantalising glimpse of nipple.

Cammies on the Floor

Man and woman silhouette kissing

This was the second image that made me think of Sin City – but a much less doom-laden than standard installment. Great comic book lines and texture, so much being said with so little. A strong male figure, with a beautiful woman in his arms. But look at the expression on her face: no one in Frank Miller’s world ever looks that happy! It’s a whole story in one frame. *sigh*.

Charlie in the Pool

Woman with feet up in the sun

I love this image from Charlie; there’s a sense of complete relaxation, in both her own body and in the beautiful surroundings she finds herself in. On a wet and windy Sunday, when I was up to my neck in news and current affairs for the first time in ages and despairing about that slightly, it was always going to be an attractive image – and then there’s that beautiful pair of legs.

Filth and Erotica

Womans butt with belt

So let’s just go through that list of features I’m drawn to again, shall we? Curves – check. A (beautiful) bottom – check. A filter adding a grainy, gritty, slightly-too-light-for-noir-but-near-enough feel? Check. And the fact that the belt is being held so it resembles a bow, making a gift of her body…”

Thank you to Indy for her wonderful round-up and you can find her on her own blog; The Shingle Beach and on Twitter @TheShingleBeach

Blast from the Past

Sinful Sunday Week 105 – Penny for your Dirty Thoughts

Penny self portrait in the mirror with cat

This is such a fabulous self portrait image. The strong blue walls could so easily overwhelm Penny within the image but by using the mirror to create depth in the image that doesn’t happen, instead we have a wonderful candid shot of Penny and her feline model.

Sinful Sunday Weekly Round-up 223

Before I hand over to this weeks guest on the round-up let me give you my usual reminder that the monthly prompt for August is Vintage/Retro. Now that is done, all I have left to do is to welcome Charlie in the Pool and let her present her top 5 pics of the week

Charlie’s Top 5 Pics of the Week

When Molly asked me to do the round up this week I was absolutely over the moon about it, having contributed to Sinful Sunday for almost a year now I look forward to the round up every week, wanting to know if any of my favourites made it into the top 5.

Before I get onto listing my top 5 I want to say a massive thank you, first of all to Molly for creating such an amazing creative community and to every single person, past, present and future who has contributed to Sinful Sunday. I find it incredible that a group of people, most of whom have never met, can be such a warm, welcoming and nonjudgmental bunch of people. Taking part has really changed my life, it has taught me so much about life, love and sex. It has made me push myself, both creatively and emotionally and for that I thank you all.

Woman in sexy stocking with lots of empty room

The composition and angle of this shot is beautiful. The muted tones create a sultry sensual feel to it which along side the words makes me adore this image. I absolutely love the stockings too.

Molly’s Daily Kiss

redwrap

As soon as I saw Molly’s image I knew it would be in my top 5. The editing is absolutely incredible. The vibrancy of the colours and the contrast between the red and greens make this image look like a fairytale painting.

Dragon’s Kink

Woman with breasts tied up

Who would of thought that bandanas would make a brilliant addition to a toy box? Out of the three images that were posted the first one has to be my favourite. The way the bandanas are tied frame her breasts perfectly. The lighting draws your eyes to the dog tags and then the colour of the bandanas move your focus to the rest of the image.

Frisky in the 916

man in shower

I know I probably shouldn’t say it but this is my favourite image this week. The angle of it is just incredible, it’s like we are spying on a private moment of reflection, which taps directly into my voyeuristic side. I have nothing else to say about this image other than I absolutely love it.

Exposing 40

Naked self porrtait of woman on a bed

This might be a view that exposed 40 has never seen before but what a fantastic view it is. The angle of the shot, the sunlight shining on her skin making it look incredibly soft and smooth, her wonderful curves all make up a beautiful landscape. I’m so glad she is celebrating it and sharing it with us.

Thank you to Charlie for this weeks fabulous round-up. You can find Charlie on her blog: Charlie in the Pool and on Twitter @CharlieInThe

Blast from the Past

Sinful Sunday Week 104Geeky Nymph

retro image of pink lips

When I went through week 104 trying to pick an image for here this one just seemed to demand to be the one in the limelight as it is another fabulous example of an Vintage/retro style image (which is also the prompt for the 1st weekend in August) I love the way the pink lipsticks just pops out of this image, making them the real focus and grainy edit and muted tones of the rest of the picture just work perfectly to inspire thoughts of 1960’s retro chic
