Capture Drama And Sensuality In Your Photos
A photo can tell us what happened at a particular location at a certain date and time. Photos can capture a story of life in other cultures. Adult photography can document what happened during the moment the picture was shot, or it can tell the story of the person who was the photo’s main focus. For most, adult photography is a taboo topic because of its propensity to include nude or erotic boudoir images. In reality, many people already engage with adult photography through lingerie ads and other photographs that suggest sensuality and romanticism. These can be nude to semi-nude, or even sensual portraits. But how do you create those perfects shots that will enchant everyone?
In the mind of a photographer, beauty comes in fleeting moments. Perfection is not necessarily attained by the subject on which the camera is focusing. Sometimes beautiful photos can emerge from symmetry and framing, but there are also instances where the drama and mystery of a blurry image can take center stage.
· Shoot with a different perspective – Whether you’re working in a studio or capturing a candid moment, there are always ways to change the perspective of a shot. Don’t succumb to enacting the typical poses that tourists do. Change an angle, lower your camera, or take a top perspective shot.
· Capture in black and white There’s an eerie yet elegant aura that black and white shots exude, even in typical poses. If you have more time to spend on getting your model and studio just right, try to choose furniture with bold or detailed patterns, or white bedding. White creates dramatic shadows and lines when processed on black and white and adds a sensual touch to your portraits.
· For boudoir photos, pick a clean setting – Avoid rooms that are messy or overdecorated. Add one or two interesting props, but keep everything else minimal. Also, have your model try other sitting poses, rather than the classic “lying supine” pose.
· Work with dramatic lighting – Light is a photographer’s best friend. Without the appropriate usage of it, your shots are worthless. For taking portraits of people outdoors, experiment with different lighting conditions. Sunrises and sunsets are the most dramatic, as the angle of the sun’s rays can produce yellow to orange highlights. If you’re working in a studio, try positioning your light source in different angles.
