Ballwin, MO (PRWEB) April 7, 2009
Boudoir photography has been growing rapidly in recent years with women typically starting their search for a boudoir photographer online. They may Google "intimate photography," or "sensual, sexy, romantic portraits," but all roads quickly lead to "boudoir photography," so they add their city and start reviewing websites.
What happens next has inspired one professional boudoir photographer to create a "Top Ten" guide for women who want a professional, tasteful boudoir photo shoot.
According to Jennifer Bayer, Studio Manager at Blush Girl Boudoir in St. Louis, Missouri, "The Web is awash in bad boudoir. Many general portrait studios have added boudoir to their laundry list of offerings along with senior portraits, pet photography, passports, etc. There are lots of websites with images of woman posing on cheesy studio sets or paper backgrounds or just lying on a bare wooden studio floor. Not good."
Since few general photographers have training in beauty lighting or skills in coaching their clients at posing, adds Mayer, good results are scarce. And because sessions are often very short, the client feels rushed and never has time to relax and get comfortable so she can be herself in front of the camera.
The Top Ten Tips were designed to address this situation. Created by an experienced commercial photographer, the guide emphasizes both what women should be looking for as they evaluate boudoir photographers, and how they can best prepare for the boudoir shoot, enjoy the experience, and come away with beautiful, sexy results.
The Blush Girl Boudoir guidelines can help women, no matter where they live, invest in the right boudoir photographer, one who will create great pictures they will be pleased with. Tips include:
- Look for someone who specializes in boudoir photography and will allow plenty of time for the shoot (a full morning or afternoon vs. a quickie drive-thru session).
- A good re-toucher is important; so is a good printer. And having both in house insures your privacy.
- Ask about on-location glamour lighting. A true boudoir photography professional will be open to shooting in an exciting place outside the confines of a studio, one that is comfortable and inspiring to the client.
- Instead of trying to work off that last five pounds, spend prep time shopping for plenty of sexy lingerie and bring favorite sensual music and jewelry along to the session.
These and other tips are available at the Blush Girl Boudoir website.
