Fashion & Boudoir inspired photo session w/ model Anita DeBauch
Photographing a model for your own portfolio is a fun way of experimenting with different lighting styles and techniques. It’s a low-pressure scenario where you can take chances, and spend time honing something – all the better to become more confident with lighting and posing. It’s really the only way to become a better photographer, continually playing and shooting.
I met up with British model Anita de Bauch (Facebook page / website) in my studio for a day. She brought along various outfits, from cutesy vintage lingerie to out-there latex outfits. With all that in play, we went through a wide range of looks, from Art Nude to Boudoir. The lighting ranged from gentle available light streaming into the studio, all the way to dramatic lighting in a freight elevator. So with this set of photos there’s no specific theme or look, other than perhaps, “fun”. I really like the look and the range of images we created together. Have a look!
