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.

The Tattooed girl

Yesterday I was shooting a very young and very beautiful tattooed girl. For a long time I wanted to shoot a boudoir session with a tattooed girl and finally we could meet and do the session. This is the very first edited image of the session.

2nd photoshoot

This is the 2nd photoshoot that I am doing. I posted some pictures from the first one some of you game me some advice so I worked on that. So here is a final work. What you guys think?

Switched to video during photoshoot

During one of my last glamour photoshoots i have switched to video mode to capture some teasing moments of the model. 10 minutes of shooting , 8 hrs of video editing and here comes small teaser. What do you think guys. Add a comment or critique, help me to become better clip maker :-)
here is the link to the video:


I was experimenting with some new (for me) lighting setups. Nikon D810 with 24-70 f2.8. ISO 800 1/80th second f4.5 Elinchrom Strobes and Modifiers. We took a simple window shade from home depot and secured it on a crossbar mounted to a nightstand. I blasted a Fresnel spot through the shades to create the lines. Model had a red gelled strobe...

Playing with gels

Just experimenting with lights and gels. Then experimenting with processing (tried out Alien Skin, normally just do everything with curves, probably will stick with that but get some ideas from this)


Had a chance to do a photo shoot with amazing glamour model from Slovenia Lucia Javorcekova. Unfortunately we had really tight schedule of 30minutes. This shot is taken in natural available light.

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.

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...

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...
