I must have been dreaming of a shoot like this for months and I was so thrilled when it all came together. I have been overwhelmed with the support, love and interest that this set has had and the dark side of the boudoir shoots.
Now, let me let you in on a secret... it's not really a shower! But it is wet!!! This is all shot in the studio behind a plexiglass screen on lighting stands. I have several methods during these shoots and if you are considering the shower as one of your two sets from the dark side I would always recommend your dry set first followed by this wet one as the water can ruin hair and makeup towards the end of your session.
Boudoir sessions are popular amongst women of all ages for rediscovering or exploring their sensuality, building confidence and self love and the shower is a set that helps tell a story and importantly for some give you something to do!
This shot could equally be recreated in a hotel room if you opt for the on site session.
You can check out the full dark side set guide here which includes this and the jungle the dark side bed set which includes a gold shimmer wall and atmospheric lighting and nudes.
Nudes are an art unto themselves and a lot of time and thought goes into photographing you nude, its important for me as your photographer to understand your end goal and objective this could be commercial, intimate, empowering, as a gift for someone else and all those elements need to be considered. The shower is great place for topless images as it is an environment that naturally lends itself to an amount of nudity for realism.
I am so excited to hear from you if you think that this type of shoot might be for you, a lot of my clients build up from the light side to the dark side shoots so if you've been to see me before chances are you'll be thinking about your next shoot already and this might be the one for you.
See you soon, bring a towel!
