Title: Boudoir Photography: The Complete Guide to Shooting Intimate Portraits

Author: Critsey Rowe

ISBN: 1907579192

Publisher: ILEX

Edition: Paperback

Boudoir photography is the genre of sexy photos of women, usually wearing lingerie (never nude) and generally in a bedroom or domestic environment. It differs from Glamour in having a more romantic female friendly aesthetic. It's less about objectification and more about creating a sensuous mood.

A growing area of the commercial social sector in the US and catching on here too, the clients are often the women themselves, wanting something a bit sexier and more alluring to give their partners than a cheesy portrait on a canvas backdrop. Many of the most successful photographers in this genre are women, including the writer of this book.


This is a practical guide that explains everything from styling and clothes to sets, lighting and posing and is filled with her excellent atmospheric, fashion-mag inspired imagery. It's a great starting point if you're thinking of trying this genre yourself.
