The most flattering boudoir images are often very nuanced presentations of the subject’s sensuality—but that doesn’t mean that the lighting has to be extremely complicated. For most of the beautiful images in this well-illustrated book, photographer Robin Owen uses just a single light source. As she shows, the key to getting great results with simple setups is careful planning. From there, careful posing within the light allows you to emphasize your subject’s best features and minimize any areas she feels less confident revealing. By observing the delicate balance between lighting and posing, Owens shows you how to create a broad spectrum of looks that will satisfy virtually any boudoir client. As you follow through Owen’s detailed descriptions of her work on sixty different sessions, you’ll quickly discover that lighting a boudoir portrait doesn’t have to be a daunting prospect—with a little creativity and ingenuity, simple can be absolutely beautiful!
