How to Get the Best Boudoir Pictures
The key to getting the best boudoir shots is in the lighting and the posing. Of course, there are other factors that come in to play, as well. A few of the main factors for a great boudoir shoot include the quality of the camera, the quality of the equipment, the experience of the photographer, and several other factors come into play as well. Still, the lighting and the posing are probably the two most significant factors in determining how the boudoir photos turn out.
When you visit my studio, I can help you to achieve a beautiful, ethereal boudoir shoot. When possible, I prefer to use natural light with just a few modifications. Fortunately, there is plenty of natural light in Las Vegas! I can help you with the posing, the lighting, and the tools that you need, whether you are an experienced model or this is your first time in a boudoir shoot. We will achieve a beautiful, glowing look for you.
For natural lighting, we can hang very thin, translucent white curtains over a window. Then, I will have you stand in front of the curtain. We’ll actually use a C-stand for the curtain so that it generates a light source behind you that will wrap around you and envelope your whole body. As the light wraps around your body, it’s going to show off your curves and wrap around your lines. This is one of the things that we want to focus on when we are doing boudoir photography.
Lighting and Posing for Boudoir Photography in Las Vegas
When I photograph for a boudoir shoot in Las Vegas, I am very careful not just to set my camera in program mode. This leads to underexposed images. I shoot aperture-priority, which uses exposure compensation, effectively telling the camera not to guess and make it medium-gray. I want to lighten it up to achieve that pure-white background that wraps around my subject and gives her the correct exposure.
When it comes to posing or your boudoir shoot, I know all the little tricks and hacks to achieve the best results. For example, rather than facing the camera straight-on, I might ask you to bend your right leg over the left. This will create a beautiful curve by your thigh and hip. This also narrows your body at the bottom of the frame, giving the perception that you are narrow and curvey. I may also ask you to lean your chest forward because whatever is closest to the camera appears largest.
