Bridal Boudoir Course – £295 + VAT
A fantastic practical course in the art of Boudoir photography. Sophisticated boudoir photography is a popular add-on service for brides-to-be, but is rarely executed well. Many photographers fall down by concentrating too much on lighting, instead of understanding their client’s desires and concerns. Being made to feel relaxed, and excellent direction in posing are the key elements for a great boudoir shoot, and focusing on these issues will help to produce images that are both sophisticated and desirable.
On this one-day course, we discuss the theory of organising your shoot, relaxing your client, easy lighting set-ups and props. You will spend 2 hours shooting a model in our studio learning how to direct your subject into flattering poses.
The afternoon starts with a location shoot in the Bridal Suite of a magnificent wedding venue. Working with a model in a variety of set-ups, you will learn how to create beautiful boudoir portraits using ambient lighting in this sumptuous location.
At the end of the day we will demonstrate some basic Photoshop retouching techniques to help improve your images and subsequently increase your sales.
