Boudoir beauty

Sometimes brides approach us hesitantly when it comes to shooting boudoir photos. Naturally, it can be both exciting and nerve-wracking at the same time… but boudoir is just as much for you, as it is for your significant other. Keep in mind that boudoir doesn’t always mean lingerie or nudity; it is simply a day for you to be pampered, feel your utmost beautiful, and not worry about your impending nuptials — if only for a few hours.

Below is a bride who contacted us with nothing more than a couple of  ideas torn from magazines. She wanted a highly-stylized, MAC makeup-esque editorial shoot that focused on her fiancé’s favorite feature — her eyes. We put our talented team of stylists to work in the studio, glamming her up with a gorgeous color palette and a faux bob reminiscent of a vintage screen siren.

And voilà! Insta-sex kitten, straight from a magazine ad! Her fiancé is quite the lucky man!

    Hi Zdenka! I’m not a real professional phaopgrtoher yet, just a hobbist, so it may be that my case is somehow simpler. Anyway, I generally and up with a 2-3 hundreds of pictures per session. The first thing I do, after of course removing the obviously bad ones, is taking them in batches of sequential photos having a similar setup/position. For instance, if the first 12 photos have the model standing, that’s my first batch. If the next photo is somehow different (because either the pose changed, or the dress, or the field of view changed, etc.), then that will belong to the next batch. For each batch I count how many pictures there are in it, and I blindly decide how many pictures I want to keep. This is done _a priori_, without necessarily even looking at the pictures at all. I generally end up with a number less then five. Then I start deleting. Deleting is an iterative process, I go through the pictures in the batch several times and every time I delete one or two, until I get down to the number I decided before.At the end, I usually end up with around 50 pictures per session. I use f-spot (it’s a Linux application, but I bet there are similar programs for Windows and Mac too) to catalogue them: I tag them, and give a rating to the best ones. This way, if one day I’ll need to make my own portfolio, I’ll just have to browse trough the best pictures, and not all of them. If your program doesn’t allow rating, then you could just tag with the word portfolio the best ones, or even create tags for rating, such as 5stars , 4stars , etc.But no matter what, a tagging software is a must.
