Lighting setups for your boudoir shoot
In the wintertime, I prefer a bedroom above any other location. So let’s discuss a lighting setup for your boudoir photo shoot! The setup will work for you even in tiny bedrooms and you won’t need a lot of gear. Watch the video to understand the setups and then go try it out yourself.
Dramatic beauty lighting with Speedlights
Here’s a way to achieve a beauty light with some drama in Speedlight photography. You place a shoot through umbrella right above your model. It works wonders – even in small and narrow sets like a group of three models in a regular hotel room.
High-fashion photography lighting with speedlights
Here’s an example of high fashion photography lighting with speedlights. The briefing for this photo shoot was to photograph 6 garments with two models in just two hours.
Setup a “one light stand” … in the hotel?
You don’t need 10 lights to take a great photo. In this video, Zelbel demonstrates how you can take a beautiful photo in a small hotel room with just a one-light setup (via greg). Perfect for a dramatic look and also for bodyscapes.
