Maybe you’ve heard of it, maybe you didn’t or maybe you’ve even made a photoshoot like this throughout your career as a camgirl. We’re talking about boudoir photography sessions, and this one is something that you have to try at least once to know if you love it or not.
What is boudoir photography you may ask? Boudoir shoots are about more than sexy poses. Named for the private bedroom setting where they typically take place, this type of portrait photography focuses on the seductive or romantic side of someone, who is usually posed partially nude or in lingerie. But traditional sex appeal is not the only goal. Boudoir photography sessions are also about stripping down emotionally and getting photos that showcase people’s vulnerability or passion.
Most boudoir pictures are taken of women in stereotypically feminine poses. However, anyone, anywhere on the gender spectrum, can use a boudoir session to express a side of themselves typically seen only behind closed doors. Boudoir photoshoots are often purchased as a gift for a special someone, but they’re also an amazing way for you to celebrate yourself.
These photo sessions can unlock new levels of confidence in you, but they can also bring up insecurities and discomfort for those not used to posing this way. Because of that, it’s more important than ever to build up your own confidence before you go into a boudoir studio.
Are there some props you can use in this type of photography style? Sure there are! But the focus is on your body in boudoir photography. You don’t need too many props because they would draw attention from you. If you choose a bedroom or a couch as the main location, use sheets, and pillows. If you are having a bath, add some rose petals and elegant bubble bath bottles. Or you can have a glass of champagne nearby as well.
Use ordinary objects like a mug or book. These will make the boudoir photos more natural and spontaneous. Choose props that fit your personality. If you decide to have a theme, you can use relevant objects for your boudoir shoot. For example, if you like vintage style, buy some antiques to add to your boudoir session.
Lighting is a very important aspect when it comes to boudoir photography, so you have to keep that in mind. You don’t need to buy expensive lighting equipment for your DIY boudoir session. Natural light can result in the most flattering photos.
Make sure to position yourself close to a window. If the light is too direct, use a white curtain or a piece of white paper to diffuse it. This will result in soft and flattering lighting. Think about the direction of the light as well. Front lighting can reduce skin imperfections. But backlighting is amazing for creating silhouettes and highlighting your shape. Side lighting is excellent for emphasizing your muscles and curves.
Boudoir photography is an amazing way to focus on yourself and gain more confidence and attract more members to your camming room. And the results are photos you will cherish for a long time and that will definitely make you a little more money.
