NN & Trouble - 
I haven’t submitted in ages, mainly because I’ve been off taking photographs of other people, with some minor success. But recently I’ve started shooting self-portraits again, often with this nifty Yashicamat camera, which makes doing mirror self-portraits both easier and prettier. Seeing as NN was in a sense where I got my start in this phase of my photography career, it seems only fitting that I send you one, as a way of saying thanks for the early and enthusiastic support.
This is also only the second time I’ve posted an image with my face showing anywhere on Tumblr. I spent ages being super secretive about my photography, hiding my face, using a pseudonym, and so forth, but I am done with all that now. This is me, warts and all, and I’m cool with that.

Andrew, it’s so nice to see the man behind the magic. I’ve admired your work for a while now and think it’s really cool you’re feeling comfortable enough to attach your name and face to your practice. It’s something I’ve often fantasized about doing but know I’m not ready to take that step. Your camera has a really nice quality to it and I’d love it if one day Ninja and I could be in front of the lens. -Trouble

ninja & trouble,
today’s the first day of a new adventure and an extended break from reality for us. we’re exploring the pacific northwest (and each other) and hope to chronicle a couple moments from each day of our trip on our blog. here’s the view outside (and inside) our hotel window in this morning’s early light. enjoy!

That sounds like an absolute dream and I’m definitely jealous of your trip. This submission is so fantastic. I can only imagine how sexy you felt pressed up against that glass as he undressed you. I hope you two continue to share snippets of your adventures with us. Enjoy every minute of it.

For a long time I felt like I wasn’t really being ‘me’. I was so unhappy with my life, and I was and am still young. It kept me up at night and plagued me during the day, until New Years when I decided I’d keep just this one promise. I promised to be truthful to who I was, as a bisexual woman and someone who truly loved the art of nudity. I also hated my body, no matter how much I tried, I couldn’t look past the fattiness of my stomach and thighs. So I changed that too, losing 16kgs in 6 months. And all I have to say is thank you Ninja and Trouble, you guys played a huge role in reminding me its ok to just be me. This photo basically has proven how much I have changed, prior to now, I would have never dreamed in finding any photo, naked or clothed, of me artistically attractive, let alone submitting it online to you guys. Plus I’ve always loved my mirror even if I didn’t love myself in it, however, now I believe my mirror and I have a wonderful relationship as we play with light.

Caongradulations on sticking to your goal, people often are unhappy and hope for change but rarely do we take the initiative to do anything about it. So it’s very nice to see someone fulfil their ambition and focus. This photo is very beautiful and has many little details to admire,  the shadows on your body and the wall behind you, the sunflowers, the cat pillow and what looks like a Poladoid on the table. Thank you very much for sharing this with us today, I find it very inspirational and I hope it connects with other ninjas as well.

I’ve been following you guys for awhile but never got around to submitting something. Yesterday, I bought my first lingerie item for myself and thought I’d fool around with my camera… and voila!
Side note: ladies, buying lingerie without any intention of pleasing someone else is empowering. I always hesitated to buy it, but it honestly makes you feel so much more sexy and confident in yourself! :) 

Great advice, and beautiful photo. The different textures and vertical lines you captured make the photo very visually interesting, I really like these old fashion selfie photos with real cameras, and I think this is one of my favorites.

this is my first submission and i wanted it to be special. I recently finished my degree at uni and have had to move back in with my parents until i start my masters course. I love my family but after spending three years doing my own thing it’s hard to come back to a life that my parents think they can control. I have little privacy in our tiny house so it’s nice, when i’m home alone, to strip off and remember all the beautiful times i had at university. I’m also quite concious of my boyish figure but seeing myself from this angle makes me realise i needn’t worry. 

I’m happy to read taking this submission helped you find confidence in your figure, photography can be so helpful to see yourself from a better angle. Thanks for sneaking in a submission while you were home alone and welcome to Submission Sunday.

So far this submission is one of my favourites we’ve gotten today. It looks as if it was taken with an analog camera and the way you’ve titled it makes me imagine you finding this mirror while travelling and getting the idea to create this picture. Great colour, framing, and focus. -Trouble

This is a photo of me. Just playing about with light really, and trying for something a little arty!

The light and the reflection show the artistic effort you were striving for. You definitely look beautiful feeling the warmth of the sun, thanks very much for showing off.

My gf and I love making homemade videos. This time I came up with the idea of using two cameras to capture our lovemaking from a different angle and with the addition of the mirror, we actually had yet another perspective.

I know it is a lot of fun to watch your sex again together, Trouble and I shoot with two cameras too then each hold one and watch the footage we captured re-living the moments we just experienced. I hope you did the same thing. You two look so nice on a freshly made bed with the sun shining in. Thanks for the sexy submission

I had a dream last night and in it my boyfriend was a real jerk to me…so a good fucking and a little bit of butt kissing was needed to remember how amazing he is in real life :)

Sounds like a perfect way to start the day and fix the blues a bad dream can bring.  I’m glad you were able to spend the morning together to fix the feelings your dream caused and thank you very much for taking this beautiful photo and sharing it with us.

Hello Ninja and Trouble,
I want to share with you this photo that my boyfriend took a few weeks ago (and of course, I had his permission to submit it). It’s a beautiful reflection of his body through the wardrobe, after he showered. I love it cause it’s kinda blurred and mysterious, and at the same time shows how sexy he is without even noticing/trying to be. 
After 6 months apart, we’ll be together again in 2 weeks and I’m SOOOOO excited to be able to touch this body again and have him next to me. 

I think the main thing that makes him look so sexy in this photo is his confident stance. I really like how his face is perfectly hidden in the white in the the shelf. Thanks for sharing this submission on your boyfriend behalf, I hope we’ll get to see the two of you together when you reunite.

Hey Ninja and Trouble,
This is the very first time I take this kind of photo of myself. I felt inspired by the stories on your tumblr submissions, and I love body hair - although I don’t have that much.
This is really a big step for me because I’ve spent the last years hating my skinny skinny skinny body, as I would hear people saying how bad I had to gain weight - which I tried really hard. But ultimately I found someone who actually liked me who gave me a different perspective from my body.
I know that’s some shitty photo but I wanted to tell my story. I’m 23 and Brazilian by the way.
Love,
sandroxp

There’s something really captivating about this submission. I think the honesty in the write up is conveyed in the photograph as well. Your budding confidence is evident and it’s very sexy to anyone who sees it. Thanks for taking part in SS and I really like your shorts.

Hi there Ninja and/or Trouble. :) I saw that this week’s SS theme was body hair… and well this is perhaps not a week where I can submit something suitable for the theme as I am bare everywhere except for my head. So instead I wanted to try for a dream submission. I was immediately drawn to this picture. Unfortunately I own no small mirrors like in the picture, so rather than try for an exact replica, I worked with what I had and had all sorts of fun in the process. 

I’m so glad that you found inspiration and decided to try to create a dreamsubmission. The original is such a powerful image and you did such a great job capturing the same feel and pose. I hope you had fun admiring yourself in the mirror, and thank you so much for sharing your photo with us.

I’ve never perceived my body as being “strong.” I haven’t ever had visible muscles, and I experience fatigue often, which makes me feel like a weak person. I took some photos last week to show myself the strength that my body does have now thanks to yoga and giving it loving attention daily. It’s important to feel yourself as a strong force who can meet life face to face, and this picture reminds me how I am much stronger physically and mentally, than I have ever been. 

Strength shows itself in a multitude of forms and doesn’t always mean a muscular physique. The subtle toning and stretching of muscles that a yoga practice helps to build up is in my opinion one of the best ways of gaining both physical strength and flexibility. I think anyone that is struggling with any sort of thought pollution should take a hot yoga class and sweat it out with their thoughts and challenges for a little while. Thanks for your submission, you look beautiful. I’d love to see more from you as you get stronger and stronger. -Trouble

So, I know you guys don’t usually post mirror pics, so I tried to keep things as classy as possible and show off a side of my body I don’t pay much attention to!

As I always say there is a time and a place to break any rule and you demonstrate nicely why with this shot. You managed to make your mirror selfie stand out by choosing such a sexy pose. And it also happens to be one of my favourites. Your ass looks very nice resting on your little feet. Thank you very much for putting in some thought and effort within your camera limitations and sharing your submission with us.
