Keeping It Low Key

25th November 2014
By that I mean the style. I'm certainly not going to keep these under wraps. I carried out the second of my trial Boudoir shoots just over a week ago, and have managed to steal five minutes here and there between processing orders to edit some of the images. The name of the game here was to try out a few different lighting styles. Mainly low key, which I think works superbly for Boudoir. This style throws much of the subject into shadow hiding much of their figure, but accentuates edges and highlights to give a sultry feel to an image. This isn't going to be the only style I will shoot from now on, but it's another choice for my clients, one which I think will be good for the more camera shy ladies out there!
This set of photos was shot in my model's living room with one continuous light. It helped that the ambient light on the day was almost non-existant. Along with the grey clouds and rain showers, it was a boon to be working indoors.
I must say a big 'thank you' to my model for posing for me. You wouldn't be able to tell she was a tad nervous before the we began shooting, but I think she enjoyed the experience overall, relaxing into the shoot superbly well.
Part two of this shoot will reveal some more high-key shots, showing how different styles can be achieved in one house inside an hour!
