Sinful Sunday Monthly Prompt March 2016

The prompt for 6th March 2016 is: Shallow Depth of Field

Time for a technical photography challenge this month. The depth of field, or focus range as it is often known, is the amount of the image that is in focus. A deep focal range is when all or nearly all of the image remains in focus. A shallow depth of field is where only a selected part of the image is in sharp focus with the foreground and background falling out of focus, allowing you the photographer, to control the area of the image you want to highlight as your subject. Often the area of your image that is out focus still provides context to the part of the image that is sharp, adding to the overall narrative of your shot.

So how do you go about this? If you are using a DSLR you are going to need to shot in manual and set a large aperture which is represented on the setting by a low f stop anything under f 5.6 should work but the lower the better. If you using a camera that is full automatic then it gets a bit trickier, however even phone camera these days allow you to select a focal area but if not it can still be done. Make sure the area you want to be in focus is well lit, all cameras are set to search for the focus on the light, they will seek that out and automatically make that the focal point. Also, get in a bit closer, make the area of the image you want in focus the most prominent thing. For example, image taking a side on shot of a breast, get in fairly close, the camera should focus on the brightest/contrasting thing it sees which should be where the nipple and outline of the breast cuts through the background.

Finally some inspirations….

Stroke by Behind the Chintz Curtain – The focus here forces the eye to the little bit of lace against her skin and the clasp of the stockings

Cocoon by Cammies on the Floor – Such a beautiful sensual image with the bright red lips as the focus made all the more sexy by the blurred background of her nakedness

One Nightstand by Frisky in the 916 – Very clever shot, the condom wrapper is the focal point but there is enough of the background to tell us a bigger story.

Sharing the bed – The Shingle Beach – The focus here on the hand in the empty part of the bed has been used to emphasis the empty space

Are you sitting comfortably by A to sub Bee – This is brilliant use of shallow depth of field. The only part of the image that is actually in focus is a small part of the rope in the foreground but clever composition and use of light actually means that you are drawn past that focal point and into the story of the shot.

A New Toy by Penny for your Dirty Thoughts – A clever shot with the toy the focus but the background playing a vital and sexy role in giving it context.

The prompt is published here on the site mid month, which will give people approximately 2 weeks to work on their idea before linking in, on the 1st weekend of the month. The prompt is completely optional and you can link in as normal on that weekend whether you have used the prompt or not. The usual Sinful Sunday rules will, of course, apply. Please make sure you have read them recently so that you are fully aware of what is and is not allowed.

As always interpret as you wish, or disregard altogether and do you own thing.

Sinful Sunday Weekly Round-up 252

It is my turn this week to bring you a top 5 and wow what a week. I was unsure about the prompt this month: A is for… Would it inspire you all or would it fall flat on its A shaped face? It seems that the answer was most definitely the former as not only did 44 bloggers join in but the huge variety of different images was quite frankly phenomenal. Even when people had picked the same word there resulting interruptions were very different. As a result I have decided that there will at some unspecified point in the future be more letter prompts. However for next months prompt make sure you check back in tomorrow to find out what it is.

Molly’s Top 5 pics of the Week

Modesty Ablaze

Modesty blissed out on the bed

This one is called Aftermath and it truly captures that sentiment perfectly. She looks resplendent in her utterly bliss out state, nothing else matters but the here and now and the joy and pleasure of the moment.

Exposing 40

Womans legs in light and shadow

This one is called Angles, an inspired decision in my opinion because despite the fact that the shape of her legs do create angular shapes they really are the sexiest, softest angles ever. I love how the light falls on the one part of her leg that is actually curved and how she appears to be disappearing into the shadows or maybe emerging.

Lil Miss Shalla

Shalla topless with hair hanging down in front of her breasts

This one is called Aise, a French word that if you don’t the meaning of read Shalla’s post and she explains. In fact if you have not read her post then you must because it also includes a beautiful poem written in French by her lover. However what I love about this image is just about everything; the way the edges are over exposed framing her, the way her long curly hair falls around her face and in front of her boobs and the little purse of her lips. There is just something fabulously fierce about her in this image and I love it

Illicit Thoughts

Mans arm across womans breasts

I am sure you can guess the title of this one easily. It is arms. Now I will freely admit I have a bit of a thing for male arms, shoulders and hands but this image is way more that just arms. It captures perfectly that wonderful feeling of being wrapped up in strong loving arms. This image feels intimate, sensual and very sexy

Holden and Camille

Man giving woman oral sex

I discovered these guys through Hyacinth’s boobday and suggested to them that maybe they might enjoy Sinful Sunday and so I was delighted when I saw they had linked in and when I clicked on their post I knew that this one was going to feature in my round-up this week. The A word they picked was Attentive and I think it captures that perfectly. I love the connections between them, his hand on her breast her hand in his hair. The cascade of her hair across the bed is beautiful and I love that we can see the slightly farrowed brow on his face as he concentrates on what he is doing and the fabulous little touch of the brightness from the window creating a halo of light around the top of his head as if he is an angelic pleasure giving creature.

Blast from the Past

Sinful Sunday Week 129Rebel’s Notes

Rose petals on Rebels stomach and breasts

I think this is one my favourite images of Rebel’s. I love how the red of the petals stands out against the tones of her skin and they way her nails match the red roses. Also the black of her stockings are mirrored by the black of the wrist cuffs. The whole things just works.

Sinful Sunday Week 252

It is the first Sunday of the month and that means it is the prompt weekend.

The prompt for 7th Febuary 2016 is: A is for…

I thought it would be interesting to gradually wander our way through the alphabet. What you do with it is completely up to you but I am hoping, seeing as you are a thoughtful and creative lot, this one will get you thinking. However just to help you on your way, there of course the obvious things; ass, anal but to be honest I am hoping that you will look beyond the obvious….  Acceptance, Afterwards, Anticipation, Arousal, Available….. oh the list is endless. I have no idea if this prompt is going to work or not but there is only one way to find out and that is to put it out there and see what happens.

Sinful Sunday is all about the image.

Sinful Sunday Round-up Week 251

Last final reminder that this Sunday is the prompt weekend! I will be interested to see if this prompt inspires or falls flat on it’s face.

Now for this weeks round-up which is being selected by Big Miss Naughty

BMN’s top 5 pics of the Week

Well, when our lovely Molly first asked if I would like to take part I was utterly petrified, but I didn’t take too long to think about and said of course. As others before me have said I wish I could choose more.

So without further ado and in no particular order is my Top 5

Modesty Ablaze

Blue hand prints on womans breasts

K has quite frankly has posted the best picture of “wildlife” I’ve seen in ages – it’s just bloody brilliant and made me laugh!

Exhibit A

Nude Man in shadows in bedroom

A wonderful word (and great picture) to describe the perfection of Quote: “a day wasted so wonderfully” – bet we all want one or two of these.


Naked man looking out of bedroom window

The fabulous “late” Window picture – though this was not Andrew’s first picture – is just fabulous, who else wants to grab hold of his bum?

A Dissolute Life Means

Topless woman laying on bed with condoms

Oh! How comfortable does Hy look lying there? Her description of events sounded wonderful too.

Tabitha Rayne

Woman with top open laying on sofa

This lovely sexy lady manages to get her tit out and remain so totally relaxed about it!
