Many inquiries I receive include the question, “do I have to get naked?” The question is often followed up by the statement, “I don’t want to be nude.” The beautiful thing about boudoir photography is how flexible an approach to a session can be. It can range from photo shoots with a focus on glamour to implied nude boudoir with fine art in mind.
What Is Not Implied Nude Boudoir
Anything that shows full nudity, especially private parts, did not come from an implied nude photo shoot. Also, anything that places an excessive amount of focus on the body while not making use of angles or available light and shadows to conceal. If you ever look at a photograph that purports to be implied nude boudoir, but something feels off about it, chances are your instincts are correct.
In my opinion, it’s instinctual being able to tell the difference between what is tasteful and what is sleazy.
A great photograph with implied nudity will look like fine art.
Every Photographer Approaches Implied Nude Photography According to Their Artistic Vision
There’s no single correct way – just the way, so as long you receive pictures that your instincts will tell you, “this is art.”
During implied photo shoots, the photographer will make a great effort to use of light and shadows.
The photographer will also make use of poses and angles. All so that when looking at your photograph, you’d see the truth, that less is more.
An excellent boudoir photograph will engage the imagination while at the same time, it would strike you as undoubtedly tasteful.
