Training with Boudoir Beauty, Kellie

February 14, 2012

I have recently started taking bookings for Boudoir photography shoots. There can be some confusion as to what this type of photography is all about. For me, boudoir photography is about elegance, intimacy, romance and confidence. Finding this balance is a hard one. The images are far more soft and sensual than sexy and erotic. It is NOT glamour, erotica or nude!

At the end of January I attended a training course in Maidstone, which discussed how to achieve this balance as well as what to look for when capturing an image my client will love.

Obviously we all have parts of our body that we don’t like and none of us are perfect. Even the best positions on the slimmest of girls can cause creases in places they wouldn’t usually exist. Knowing how to spot these and disguise them is half the skill of the boudoir photographer.

On the training course we had the pleasure of working with Kellie; a recent mother who is fairly new to modelling but looking for more work in this field. Experienced models know much more about how to pose and carry themselves than the rest of us do, making the photographer’s job easier, so it was great to work with Kellie as this was as close to a real client that we could get. (Kellie didn’t mind being surrounded by paparazzi style students while also learning a few tips from the training course.)

Kellie is a fun, relaxed girl. She was patient while we all worked around her, looking for the best shots. She’s also been a great sport by signing a model release form which has allowed me to share her images publically. Obviously not many clients will agree to share their personal photographs but having shots like this is a great way of showing people what Boudoir Photography is all about 🙂

If you are looking for a natural looking model who takes direction well, Kellie is your girl.
