Gold Goddess | Boudoir Photoshoot

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.

The Blue Witch portrait set is a wrap!  Finally this blue and black, lacy witch photoshoot is all edited.

 

Time to get back into shooting with the studio’s new lens that will hopefully make better use of the small studio space!

Who would love to see more leg?  More background?  More props and more of a set?

 

What are your stretch goals in the photo studio, and how, as a photographer and model are you going to work at making it happen?

With a wider lens in this small space, some goals for the studio:

  • Build more sets and backdrops with more depth
  • Show more body and pose work
  • Utilize more elaborate costumes and props

 

What are you looking forward to in the studio?

Blue Witch | Fantasy Portrait | Photography Inspiration

What kinds of characters are your favorite to photograph?

Witches? Fashion icons? Deities? A genre?

Inspiration in the photography studio is key, as exploring what captures our interest is what propels us to create new projects!

Not all inspirations are going to be what’s best for us, however. Sometimes something we love appreciating isn’t what we love creating?

I adore fashion and OOTD photography, but I’m still exploring how its creation is meaningful to me and how I best enjoy translating it in my own way.

What inspires your photography?

What genres of photography do you admire but find difficult to recreate yourself?

This is the last of the Pink Blossoms photoshoot, and it was so much fun!

This altered bra was a joy to shoot before listing in the shop, and I can’t wait for more lingerie and couture to photograph!

What’s your favorite part of the creative process? The planning? Inspiration? Creation? Afterglow?

🌸 What pushes you to keep creating?

More Valentines portraits in the studio, putting some props and my favorite backdrop to use.

 

The studio has been a bit cramped, so I’ve got my eye on a new used lens for the portrait studio, a 35mm 1.8/f.

 

Can’t wait to get a new lens for photography and get the most from the studio space!

What’s your favorite space-saving hack in the studio?

A new year will bring new shoots in the studio, but there are still a few nudes and boudoir portraits from the last set!

 

Lots of red in the portraits lately, and I’m excited to get more blues and silvers in the studio!

Reds are passion, blues… thoughtfulness and mystery, silver is strength and uniqueness.

The colors we use in our art are to not only inspire, but to carry across a mood.  What mood are we feeling?

 

What would you like to see more of? What colors stir your soul and inspire your heart?

This year is coming to a close, and I’ve been thinking about the same thing as always.

Start Now.

 

Start dancing now.  Modeling now.  Cooking now.  Crafting now.  Photographing now.

Whatever it is you want to do, and what you want your life to be…

 

Start now.

 

We don’t become ‘ready’ by waiting around, dreaming, or even practicing on a small scale.

We become ‘ready’ by starting where we are, learning through action, and by acting big to match our big dreams.

Just as in working out, we get strong by stretching ourselves and pushing our limits.

 

So, even before the new year:

START NOW.

 

Get that starter lens.  Play with makeup.  Dance and push your limits.  Open your shop.  Submit to galleries.

 

Chase your dreams and take them.
