The Boudoir Photography Cookbook: 60 Recipes for Tempting Photos Paperback – July 7, 2015 by Jennifer Rozenbaum (Amherst Media)
Great book! I love the photos and the descriptions too. I was really excited when it arrived and read the whole thing immediately. I recommend this book for anyone looking to learn a lot about boudoir and photography in general.
Jen Rozenbaum presents sixty essential skills that will help you to fine-turn every aspect of your boudoir shoot. She begins with a look into what qualifies as boudoir, identifies the subgenres of boudoir portraiture, and then launches into a targeted look at various posing strategies that will really amp up your subject's gorgeous curves for a sexy, sultry look. You'll also find a host of image concepts that you might want to incorporate into your repertoire, plus lighting sources and setups Jen favors for creating sizzling shots, and even tips for selecting a wardrobe that downplays perceived flaws and celebrates your subject's assets. Of course, Rozenbaum doesn't stop there. There are even sections on changing up lenses for portrait variety, working with a Lensbaby (a specialty lens that offers a 'sweet spot' of focus), and pulling out all of the stops with today's must-have light source: the Westcott Ice Light.
