Serious but Simple Inquiry

I'm just having a bit of a difficult time exactly defining "glamour photography." So I suppose my exact inquiry is: Do the ladies or gentlemen subjects usually have to be half naked for it to be considered "glamour" or can the subject simply be "dolled up" or look their best. ....Okay, better variation of that question: "What DOES essentially...

Colored Gels and Glamour

I have been experimenting a bit lately with gels with my lighting and this has been the first time that I combined the technique with glamour.

I think I might have to keep on playing with the gels as I'm digging the results.

Lighting in this image consisted of 3x 600w Godox QT-600 with a red, green and blue gel.

First Post!

Hi, all! I'm new to Fstoppers, so I thought I'd introduce myself. I'm a professional boudoir photographer, but I love to shoot all types of portrait photography.

Our boudoir studio in East Nashville receives so much beautiful natural light during the day that I rarely need to use strobes (although I still do sometimes just because I...

New to group saying hello and sharing for feedback.


New to this group and the Fstoppers community. Wanted to share a very recent personal project. The concept is about nature nymphs and depicting this through boudoir styled location shoots. First at attempt at this style.

Currently I've shot and edited my forest and ocean nymph.

Hi i'm new I would love to find out what you think of my photo.


Model & MUA: MiKy

So for this shoot with MiKy I forgot to pack my go-to light modifier for my key light… my 86” PLM Umbrella :( So I improvised.
I was going for a classic Playboy glamour look with a bit of a golden hour/morning feel to give the background an overall warm look.


Key: Was positioned at...

Lattice and Couch

This shot was taken April 2016. The white couch was brought from the restaurant lobby per the models request because the patio furniture just was not working.

Sexy on the bed

Recent lingerie shoot. I decided to get a bit creative by incorporating a gel. This scene was shot with three AD360 speedlites (1 soft bank, 1 socked beauty dish and 1 gelled).

Hi! I'm new. Rate my photo ^^

Hey guys!

I recently joined the Fstoppers community. As I am still looking for my style and preferred genre, I just wanted to have your opinion on this image. It's just a simple backlit portrait that I took from a friend of mine while I was in Brazil. I found that with most of my " boudoir/ glamour " images, I prefer natural light. Any...

Trying different groups

Greetings. I've been taking photos for a long time now and have shot lots of different genres through the years. I am just testing the waters in a few of the groups here to see if any are more active than others. I am trying to connect with some like minded individuals in the photo realm and really hoped Fstoppers was the place. So, here is an...
