This shoot was such a blast, and is SFW so I get to share the whole set!

Two Photoshoots in One

To maximize your lighting setup and time in the studio, consider doing two photoshoots in one.

Start with the simpler set, simpler hair and simpler makeup. The second shoot should have the more elaborate makeup.

Remember that it’s easier to build than to remove.

This strategy works even faster when the two shoots use the same lighting setup and backdrop, but of course feel free to switch it up between photoshoots.

Have you ever done 2+ shoots at once? What looks can you think of that would work well being shot on the same day? What shoot looks are complementary?

Can you guess what the second set in this double shoot was?

So much has changed here in the studio.  Not only in workflow and equipment changes, but how I’ve learned to see myself and my work.

I have found self-portraiture as a way to learn self-love.  Not only has it helped me with my dysphoria, it’s allowed me to learn to see myself as a piece of art.  It’s helped me better comes to terms with the skin I’ve been given.

Along with the grander scheme of not feeling at home in my body, I’m no longer so embarrassed by my hands.  My hands are often a very bright red, presumably because of a thyroid issue and my very low blood pressure.  It’s been a pain to edit out or otherwise try to prevent, but I’ve learned to accept that that’s just how they are.

Instead of seeing an embarrassing bright red, I see it as a blush that fits well with my style of portraiture, especially in this photoset.

Self-portrature can help us to not only learn about who we are, but how we are all pieces of artwork.

Perfectly imperfect.

 

Gold Goddess | Boudoir Photoshoot

Beautiful harness by Charlie’s Revamps.

 

This sultry red and gold shoot was such a glamorous blast!

With the floral headdress from the Blessed Shadows Shop and this chain harness from Charlie’s Revamps coming together so perfectly with the backdrop and faux floral, this was a joy to photograph.

This backdrop is one of my favorites, a thrifted blanket that’s quite literally a bed of flowers.

These 1/2-1/2 shoots, where half the photoshoot is taken with an iPod and the other half is photographed with a DSLR have been wonderful.  These photo sessions have given an opportunity to better utilize the studio space (with the bed serving as a second backdrop) as well as practice with different equipment.

 

Gorgeous portraits come from each setup, and it’s been a joy to continue practicing without entirely taking over the studio.
