Some boudoir

November 8, 2012

A few weeks ago, I had a boudoir workshop in a local hotel. The workshop was really a shoot out, but everyone had a great time and got some awesome images. One of the things I made a point to teach was that boudoir is nothing more than glamour photography, just more focus on body parts. I get into arguments all the time about this as some of my peers believe boudoir is different, I tell them “Boudoir is a fancy word to say lingerie, implied and nude photography.” It’s a general portrait photographers chance to shoot nekked women and not be thought of as a bad guy.

Regardless of your reason for shooting boudoir, I enjoy it and for the same reasons I enjoy glamour; empowering women.

I’m not entirely sure I agree. For ME personally, boudoir is about the client, not a modeling session. Sure, I could use photoshop to make them look like something or someone they’re not, but in the end, bouodir is about celebrating her sexy, not my ideal version of her sexy. This is why I love photography, we all have our views on what is or isn’t acceptable/right and we’re all right in our own ways! Thanks for the comments!

If you are going to post a photo like the one above with focus on the hand, you’d better make certain that her nails and manicure are flawless.
