“YOU ARE A BEAUTIFUL WOMAN, OWN IT AND ENJOY IT”
I had the pleasure of being asked by a friend if I was available and interested in capturing her some boudoir images just before Christmas 2014.
At first I was unsure about doing this sort of photo shoot for a few reasons. 1; I had never done anything like this before 2; I was nervous and 3; I had no experience in this and was even more nervous now.
Anyway, they always say you should always try new things in life or experience something once to know and see if it relates to you. So I plucked up the courage and said ‘yes’.
So I brought a book, searched Pinterest for ideas and came up with a list of images for inspiration. I wanted to capture the whole shoot in a certain style, so for most of the images I used a 45mm Tilt Shift lens and an ND filter for all of the off camera flash images.
We set up a test shoot at first, with clothing on, this allowed us both to feel comfortable and to gauge an idea of the remainder of the shoot. I hope that I did my friend justice with my first attempt at Boudoir Photography and that she enjoys the beauty of her images. It was a challenge that I enjoyed, a challenge that test my skill’s, a photo shoot that I’m pleased with and something that was new and something that I have now experienced.
