Props & Costumes
For keeping your content fresh – props & costumes are 2 of the biggest tools in your… erm…toolbox.
Let’s look at some of the best types of props & costumes and some specific products too.
Paper backdrops are big rolls of paper that you can put on a stand or wall behind you when shooting.
Paper backdrops can be plain, colored, or decorated, and they give a smooth, professional look to your content.
You don’t need to buy a stand for paper backdrops… you can hang paper backdrops at home quite easily or just attach them to a wall with painter’s tape.
If you want the professional set-up, for about 50 bucks you can get a crossbar and tripod system from amazon which means you can easily switch paper backdrops at any time ⬇️
On your bed, surrounded by colorful pillows makes a great setting for recording intimate content.
Simple colorful wigs and different length wigs are a great way to switch up your look.
Lingerie is a simple way to switch up your look.
LED lighting can be used to create an intimate setting.
Or you can use LEDs as a backdrop to your content (like paper) ⬇️
Nipple clamps and other pieces of bondage/BDSM costumes might be just what your audience desires, depending on your niche.
Body jewelry is another great way to keep your content fresh & change up your look.
Grab sexy costumes from Amazon for a themed content shoot.

Lighting & Equipment
You don’t need to break the bank here.
There is a starter kit for every budget and $100 can go a long way to improving your content quality and what you post on OnlyFans.
No, you don’t need an expensive DLSR camera.
A modern iPhone will do a damn good job.
And depending on your niche a lot of your fans may prefer when you use your phone because it gives a more amateur/girlfriend type of appearance.
If your niche is very glamorous – professional style shoots might be what you need.
The single biggest technical improvement anyone can make to their content starting out is to improve their lighting.
The more light you have the better your pictures and videos will look.
Ever wondered how models are making those ultra-high-quality-looking shots?
If you thought it because of some expensive camera equipment you were wrong.
99% of the time those amazing shots were made using a pretty cheap piece of lighting equipment called the ring light.
Ring lights are perfect for beginners.
But before buying you should consider what kind of camera you will use with the ring light and the size of the ring light itself – will it be for full-body shots, or just headshots mostly?
Rings Lights – 8 things to consider
You can get a quality ring light for under $100 on Amazon.
2️⃣ Height (Minimum and Maximum)
Most ring lights will come with an adjustable rod.
At the lowest setting, it would stand at around 10 inches.
Perfect for putting on a table.
Some rods can extend as to 4 feet high or more.
Usually, you want the light to be at your level, or a little higher.
So think about the angles you might shoot from, and where you could place the ring light, to work out the best one for you.
3️⃣ Size Matters
Wider lights produce softer lighting.
So a larger light is usually what you want for shooting videos.
The typical sizes on Amazon are 12, 14, and 18-inches, all good options.
The 12-inch is best when you only want a headshot.
But if you have the budget and don’t mind the size then get an 18-inch ring light because this given the most flexibility and the most light
4️⃣ Material quality
It’s best not to purchase a super cheap ring light made out of plastic – it’s probably just gonna break within a few months.
If you travel to shoots or shoot content on holidays, etc. Consider the size and weight of the ring light – since you’re going to want to have it when shooting content anywhere.
6️⃣ Accessories Required.
Most ring lights sit on a tripod stand, some come with a wall mount.
It’s best to buy a ring light that comes with a lightweight tripod stand so that you don’t have to buy additional accessories.
It’s best if you can adjust the brightness and dim of the light – because each photo or video you take has different brightness requirements and different natural/complementary lighting.
8️⃣ Fluorescent Bulbs Vs LED Ring Lights
Fluorescent ring lights are old and suck. They often have a humming noise and overheat pretty fast too.
LEDs are the way to go.

Tripods (with remote capture)
After you’ve got some lighting sorted…
The next bit of equipment that can help with what to post on OnlyFans is a good tripod and remote trigger.
A small flexible tripod will make many shots convenient for you
Holding the phone or camera with your hand will usually result in a lot of the otherwise amazing photos being blurry and not unusable.
