2015 Boudoir Blog - March

29th March 2015
This lucky lady's mini-Boudoir shoot was a gift from her sister, and indeed shot at her sister's house too, as well as being supported through the photo-session by the said same sister...as only a sibling can...so you can imagine the mood in the room. From where I was standing (and also kneeling and crawling) the atmosphere was great. Very light-hearted and jokey, which helps enormously with nerves. Now I know the client felt out of her comfort zone, as is usual, and of course perfectly understandable, but she handled things really well and showed no signs of nerves. If I'm honest, I think she relaxed into the shoot very well and quite quickly. Being a mini-shoot of just an hour it soon flew past, which was a shame, but all good things must come to an end.
Just a quick note on editing here….Although I do plan my Boudoir shoots for sets and poses, I never really have a fixed idea on the final mood of the image with regards to the edits. Normally it's a mix of colour images and black and white. My mono images are kind of a standard, but the colour is very dependant on the model, the room and of course the light. The edit I went for here are slighlty desaturated images but with a warm feel, which if truth be told, was what I saw at the time of the shoot.

What the client thought.
I usually post these testimonials at a later date, but fortunately have the chance to share this one on the blog, so here goes….
"Thank u Martin for helping me begin to find who I am.
My shoot was bought as a milestone birthday gift & a confidence boost into the beginnings of a new life chapter.
With very little self esteem, I was completely out of my comfort zone, but Martin, professional to the end, made the whole experience very relaxing & I can't believe the amazing results are actually me!
Thank u so much Martin, you have a true artistic talent."
