Drawing the line between tasteful and tacky
Laura feels that there is a really fine line between beautiful boudoir images and tacky ones, warning that “it can go wrong really quickly!” To ensure your boudoir photographs are done tastefully, follow these guidelines:
Lighting – You want soft lighting, whether natural window light or an added soft light.
Posing – This is a big one! A natural and realistic pose, which might be a little less sexy, tends to works better. A forced “sexy” pose will most likely look “tacky”.
Styling – Hair, make-up and clothing plays a big role in creating a tasteful look.
