So, a cute person follows you and you kind of want to post a thirst trap specifically for them to see and hopefully slide into your DMs. Or, you’re feeling a random surge of confidence and you want to document it somehow and keep it for your own viewing pleasures. Or maybe you’re just a hot sexy person wanting to do hot sexy people shit. Either way, here’s your guide on taking your own thirst traps!
Nothing matters more in a thirst trap than looking confident simply because confidence is a sexy look on everyone. So, bringing that energy needs to be the first thing you work on. You can set the mood for yourself with some sensual music. Taking thirst traps in silence is just so awkward and unnecessary. So, play music that reminds you of the sexy bitch you are and/or hypes you up.
Now the first thing you need to do is pick out something to wear that you know you look hot in. Don’t feel pressured to wear anything that makes you feel uncomfortable, though. Just wear what feels good, because that feeling usually radiates in the pictures/videos and makes them way better.
Then you need to figure out the background. The goal is for the main focus to be on you, so generally, try taking your thirst traps in front of clear walls or in mirrors. If you’re taking them in your room, make sure there’s no mess behind you. And if you’re in a public place try not to have other people in the background. You want all the attention on you, not some random person behind your back.
Another thing to keep in mind is lighting! If you happen to have a ring light, now might be the time to use it. But if you don’t, which is more likely, try to make use of natural light as much as you can. You can also try using different light sources to balance out the shadows in the pictures. And if you want to take your thirst traps during the golden hour, definitely plan ahead so you know exactly when that will be, and you don’t miss it.
As for the actual thirst trap, one of the most important things is the angle it’s taken from. There isn’t one magic angle that’s flattering for everyone, that’s for sure! So, you kind of have to experiment for a bit and see how you feel about different angles and figure out what works for you.
Start posing and taking pictures and take a lot of them. You might not like the first few ones but keep going anyways, you’ll eventually get the hang of it. And if posing to take pictures feels too awkward, just take videos of you vibing to the music you have playing and then screenshot your favorite frames from them. You can always edit things when you’re done and fix what you don’t like.
At the end of the day, taking thirst traps is a personal experience and it’s all about feeling sexy and confident in your own skin. If you’re still new to the whole thing, you might feel awkward or maybe even cringe at yourself a little but that’s okay, we’ve all been there! The more thirst traps you take, the more you’ll get used to it and figure out what feels good for you. Just have fun with it.
