Glamour and Boudoir Photography
For me, Boudoir represents elegant sexiness. I always aim to use subtle settings to bring out the best from my model. I also put a lot of thoughts in my communication and pick some smooth Jazz music to create the right atmosphere for the shoot.
Nudity is more often implied than explicit. Commercially the genre is often (though not exclusively) derived from a market for brides to surprise their future husbands by gifting the images on or before their wedding day. Other motivations or inspiration for boudoir photography shoots include anniversaries, birthdays, Valentine’s Day, weight loss regimes, other form of body change or alteration (such as breast augmentation or reduction) and for servicemen and women overseas.
Glamour is different. Glamour is good. It is subjective, everyone I’ve talked to about glamour photography had a different definition for it. I usually use this style of photography if I want to create controversy, or just show my model in a more “I’m a woman, I’m confident, I’m sexy (and I know it 🙂 )” way. I find Glamour photography extremely useful for models with tattoos/piercings and/or really toned figure.
Glamour photography is a genre of photography in which the subjects, usually female, are portrayed in erotic or exciting ways ranging from fully clothed to nude but in ways that either may conceal or may otherwise not especially draw attention to the subjects’ breasts and buttocks. Glamour photography is typically less explicit than erotica although the term may also be used as a euphemism for erotic photography.
