Fresh Start for Second Half of 2015

I wanted to share a new set of images on the blog from a shoot I did with SP back while the house was still wrecked from our winter flood. Things are finally falling back into place now: I’m setting up a whole new studio room; the office is totally reset; and I have an all new website as well. I know it is only a few days from July 1st, but we’re starting this year fresh at the half-way point!

If you are interested in shooting in the coming weeks, drop me a line!

See the full set from this shoot here.

Sheena – B&W

A few shots from my first shoot with Sheena G., from Halifax. We’d been in contact for a long time and never managed to get into the studio until now. It was well worth the wait!

We did some really basic boudoir, mixing in some shadowy lighting style with basic black underwear and a white shirt. Sheena’s long hair really gives her a look that betrays her height!

White Sheet – 12 Days 2011

I’m going to try to get some of the shoots from the last few months posted on the blog in the next little while. I’m also planning on starting a few new projects over the winter, so time to clean up and finish up some of the older ones!

First up, a great shoot with Katelyn. For this one, we wanted to do some high key stuff with white sheets and white underwear. What I didn’t expect from this shoot was the really awesome emotion and tension that Katelyn brought to the set. She was really easy to work with and from her agreeable nature, I just didn’t expect to get these kind of results! Can’t wait to work with her again!

I’m booking a limited number of boudoir shoots before Valentine’s day. The package is only $99, and you get a cd with all the best images for your sweetie in time for the big day. Prints also available for an additional fee. E-mail me soon as time is limited!

Nora and Why Not to Use Continuous Light

I was so enjoying my results using continuous light last week that when Nora arrived for her shoot on Tuesday, I immediately set up the directional softbox once again and began shooting. Nora was fantastic! She could move, pull interesting poses out of thin air, and quickly move from one idea to another in no time.

A bit too quickly.

After we were shooting for a while, I realized that my miss rate was way up and I was less than satisfied with our results to that point. There were a few good images, but not the usual amount. The reason: I was shooting too slow due to the lower light levels and Nora was moving a lot. This meant a lot of blurring and ghosting and fewer great images to work from.

The solution: Slow Nora down for a bit, and switch to strobes for the rest. The lesson: Play to that energy and vitality, don’t try to reign it in!

The rest of the shoot flew by in a (literal) flash and I was more than pleased with the outcome. Here are some pics from both parts of the shoot.

 

In this set, you can see the soft and directional light from the continuous bulb. It feels and looks natural and the colours and quite rich. Nora looks fantastic. The other thing that I really like is that in the bottom right images, Nora isn’t wearing anything scandalous… it’s a full, sleeveless top and full boy shorts. They could just as easily be white gym tights. Boudoir photography can work for you, even if you’re shy about showing too much skin or want to keep your midriff covered. Stretch marks need not be an issue!

Likewise, in this set done with the studio strobes, Nora is wearing a full tank top in some images and a men’s tuxedo shirt in others. A successful boudoir image, in my mind, creates the suggestion of sexuality, without necessarily invoking any immodesty. You don’t need to be in-your-face-erotic to create provocative and sensual pictures!

If you’re ready to try some boudoir photography, now is a great time! There’s still time to get some prints done in time for Christmas and you can take advantage of our October BOGO! Book a paid shoot before the end of the month and get a gift certificate for a second shoot. Give it to a friend or lover as a gift, or come back for a second helping yourself. E-mail me now.
