I wanted to create a unique boudoir image using the same girl in a number of different poses. The only lighting that I used for this image was the down lights in the ceiling. Notice how I managed 10 unique poses but still shot her on the short/shadow side of the face giving me depth and dimension. I set the camera on a tripod and photographed the base image of the environment at f22. I shot the individuals images of her at a more reasonable speed of a 60th of a second rather than a 1/4. I proceeded to take 10 shots of the model in ten different poses that complemented each other and had a vision of what I wanted the final image to be. I deep etched all the images of the model and placed all the layers together in Photoshop. With the addition of shadows to make the scene realistic, the image was meshed together with noise levels and blending modes. This shot represents the first composite I’ve attempted with boudior photography. This was shot in my studio in Melbourne, Australia.
