On Sunday April 26, the Governor issued a six-page executive order outlining Colorado’s new “safer-at-home” phase of the coronavirus crisis as he begins to gradually ease restrictions on people’s movement starting Monday April 27. Here’s a few things to think about while you’re preparing to break out into the new phase…
I’ve occasionally written about mixing fun and sexiness with your intimate portrait session. And as you can see in today’s featured portrait our client is having fun. One of the key ingredients for both that and this session was sexiness and this week, we’d like to add another possible elements, although it’s one that is totally optional with the client—nudity.
Nudity is not always necessary for intimate portraiture. As we explain in the site’s FAQ section, “The secret of any portrait—especially intimate portraiture—is for the person being photographed to be as comfortable as possible. If you’re comfortable then the finished portraits will look better and you’ll be happier with the results.”
When it comes to what to wear or not wear, everyone has different comfort levels and what may be too revealing for one person is different for another, so ultimately the decision about what to wear for the portrait is up to you.”
There are many ways to portray sensuality in a portrait, sometimes with nudity, partial nudity or no nudity. Much depends on the client and her pose, including the use of implied nudity where the subject is actually nude, as in the above image, but because of the pose (and in this case props) and where she places her hands is not fully naked .
And you can bring an elements of fun into a boudoir session as today’s photograph illustrates, while it includes sexiness and hints at nudity, all without being a truly nude photograph. Yes, fun and sexiness can co-exist in the same intimate portrait. That’s why even before any photographs are even made we talk with our clients about what their goals are what how to accomplish them during a portrait session .
