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.
