Have a Story to Tell?
...Then choose a photographer who can successfully help you create it. The key to a great portrait is how quickly your loved ones pick up on its story. But how can a photographer portray this story? Through the creation of mood. But how? The answer is lighting.
Light is a very important element in photography, and when incorporated to create contrast, a photographer can successfully create drama and mood. Whether this mood is dark, film noir, romantic, mysterious, or fresh and airy, the incorporation of light-to create mood- is crucial for a classic, "story-telling" portrait.
In this particular case, my client here in San Diego, California wanted a "femme fatale" boudoir portrait session. She wanted to feel sexy, mysterious, and vixen-like. Considering this, I incorporated what photographers call "gel" photography. "Gels" in photographers' language, means the use of colored filters that go over one, or more, lighting sources. I used four lights for this boudoir photoshoot, all of which had colored gels attached.
So how do you like this boudoir session? If you like it and are in Southern California, then contact me for your next portrait session. I can't wait to meet you. Let's start designing your custom story!
