Boudoir Photography: Sensual Female Boudoir (part 3)

Boudoir Photography: Sensual Female Boudoir (part 3)

This article deals with a more mature form of photography, and may contain material you may find distasteful. In the previous two sections I covered the setting and the model in sensual boudoir, but now it’s time to complete the trifecta of sensual female boudoir photography: The shooting. Shooting a session like this is closely related to that of basic portrait photography, but there are a few key aspects to keep in mind when shooting. These aspects come from the imagery you are trying to achieve and will help you further achieve the desired imagery. Specific Depth of Field Any decent photographer understands that the depth of field is important fro creating emphasis in a photo, so I will not demean your abilities by going in depth on how to achieve certain blurs and the like. Rather it is better to focus on what you should, and consequently shouldn’t, focus on. For the most part you should never really need to focus on the setting, no matter how cool...

Boudoir Photography: Female Models

Boudoir Photography: Female Models

This article deals with a more mature form of photography, and may contain material you may find distasteful. To say women are the primary subject matter of boudoir photography would be a vast understatement. While men do share in parts of boudoir photography, it is primarily a female dominated genre, at least where models are concerned. Shooting a female boudoir shoot is not the ambitious musings of so many amateur photographers, however. You cannot simply dress (or undress) a model in front of a background and start shooting, less you want to end up with a series of photos equivalent to that of a married couple trying to take “dirty” photos while the children sleep. And lets be honest, no one wants those. So before you try to start directing a confused female model, there are some things you need to understand first, most of which will apply to every instance of boudoir, with the occasional exception of artistic nudes. Comfort I know that I stated this previously, but...

Boudoir Photography: Sensual Female Boudoir (part 2)

This article deals with a more mature form of photography, and may contain material you may find distasteful. In the previous section of this article I covered the overall look and setting your sensual boudoir should maintain. While maintaining a harmonious background is important for the overall look and style of this photography genre, what makes the photograph is the model. Shooting female sensual boudoir requires a few elements when dealing with the models. The elements can be summed up in three categories: Posing curves, Clothing, and The look. Posing Curves I’ve discussed previously how important it is to emphasize curves when shooting women, but with sensual boudoir that emphasis becomes a virtual absolute. Psychologically speaking men are most attracted to the curves of women, so when you shot a photography style that is designed to emphasize attractiveness you need to use this to enhance your imagery. For this reason some of the best sensual boudoir shots are of women laying on their stomachs and sitting or standing with...

Boudoir Photography: Sensual Female Boudoir

This article deals with a more mature form of photography, and may contain material you may find distasteful. It may seem I’ve stalled on getting to the actual shooting aspect of boudoir photography, but everything I’ve covered to this point serves a purpose of ensuring that you are ready to actually partake in this photography genre, and that you are not simply wanting to get women naked. Sensual boudoir is a unique version of boudoir photography, as the primary goal of this type is not to be focused on inspiring sexual ambitions. Rather it is used to emphasize the “cuteness” of your model. You will be focusing on the unique features of the model almost as much if not more than you’ll focus on the curves of your model. Shooting this type of boudoir is not difficult, especially if you have a basic understanding of portrait photography. Background Choosing your setting in sensual boudoir photography is actually a very important step in shooting this form of boudoir. Sensual photography...

Knowing these different aspects is a good start to finding yourself as a competent boudoir photographer. Shooting boudoir can present just as many challenges as many other genres of photography. All of which I will try my best to cover in this series. Before you ever even find your model there are several things you must accomplish first. These are not your typically generalizations however, much of what I will lay out here you should take note of, especially if you are just starting out with boudoir.

Seriously, this does not just ensure great photos but may prevent you from dealing with a good deal...
