3 Different Lighting Scenarios to Make Your Boudoir Images Stand Out
Many boudoir photographers get overwhelmed thinking that they have to have multiple poses in their mind to give their clients an epic experience. This can lead them to freeze up, get stuck in a rut, and lose their creativity. In this course, Teri is going to show you 3 different lighting scenarios to give you a multitude of options for your clients as well as cover how you can change your lighting, to create multiple images from a single pose.
Backlighting: Teri is going to cover how to achieve the popular “dark and moody” look to give your client seductive images that leave a little something to the imagination.
Ring Light: Using a ring light, Teri will show you how to create images for your client that will channel their true personality. Clients not only choose these high contrast images for their final selections, but these are also the ones that usually end up as their profile pictures on social media!
Neon Light: Shake up your work by adding some color to your client’s session! Teri is going to cover the ins & outs of using RGB icelights to help you achieve some really cool effects to give your clients an experience that will make them feel like a rockstar!
Just like the multifaceted humans that step in front of the lens, it’s important to have multiple lighting techniques in your tool kit to help give your client amazing image options and help YOU stand out from a sea of boudoir photographers.
Teri Hofford is a photographer and body image activist who helps boudoir photographers have a better understanding of how body image impacts their work and lives. She has been referred to as an emotional dominatrix and "Tough Love Teri" for her bold approach to personal responsibility and self love. After having been at both ends of the weight spectrum herself, Teri realized that achieving the "perfect" body was not the answer, but rather, finding contentment with the size and shape that one is at in the present is the key to feeling complete and confident. From this, Teri created what she refers to as her empowerment empire, which includes Teri Hofford Photography, everyBODIES Education, an education resource for photographers to diversify the types of bodies we see in the media, and BODY IMAGE BOOTCAMP (™) workshops to help women cope with their body image issues. Teri's mission is to help women shift their focus from constantly changing their bodies so they can start changing the world.
