Lights, Boudoir, Action!

By 13/09/2010 December 6th, 2013 5 Comments

I recently did another boudoir photography shoot, this time completely in the studio. It challenged my creativity because I had to constantly think of new poses for my client. You wouldn’t have thought that the background to this shot was anything but black in real life right? In fact, the background was grey. I used two flashes to create the look and to reduce all ambient light around my subject.

In the past, I used to shun away from using flash for my photography work. It is a scary thing that is hard to control. But once you begin to understand it, light is a fun thing to play around with. I am still learning and improving my skills over time. I know that there are flaws to this image, but overall, I am rather pleased with it.

  • I like the shot. I am no expert, so not seeing any flaws here. Did you use the new Phottix toys for this?

  • Grace Tan says:

    Thanks Nick. I would have loved to have a bit more light separation between the legs. I used my old Phottix triggers for these. :)

    So Mong Ling, Want to do a shoot for Hai Liang? :)

    Gilbert, thanks for the compliment. There are lots of other shots, but censored. :) About hiring models I guess you can check out different modeling agencies but it’s a little sensitive… may not be so easy to find.
