Boudoir portraiture is a popular and lucrative specialty, but it’s easy to fall into the trap of producing the same images over and over again with different clients. In this book, acclaimed photographer Kristi Sutton Elias (Long Beach, California) discusses the approach she used to create over 180 of her best-loved images, providing readers with creative inspiration, how-to discussions, and detailed lighting diagrams that make re-creating her signature looks a breeze.
Readers will learn how to bring a fine-art approach to their sessions with women, couples, and even male (dudeoir”) subjects. Each portrait is paired with text that details the artist’s creative inspiration, the lighting setup, clothing/wardrobe concerns, and exposure techniques. Furthermore, readers will learn to adapt unique approachesfrom location sessions, to storytelling/themed portraits, to sexy underwater boudoir, and even creative composite ideasto diversify their repertoire, ensure artistic growth, and improve sales.
