5 models 1 location Boudoir session

Behind the scenes Photoshoot

Feat. Ophélie Ferrand, Marianne M. & Océane [Part II]

If you haven’t read part I already I urge you to do so! Just kidding, I've done this bad joke before, it really doesn’t matter, you can read and watch this one first and go back to part I later. These sessions were not easy to make, especially when you try to find a way to make things different each time. Apart from an image or two, I try my best not to replicate a setup and image twice.

You will see that in part one, I used the space differently. The light in the morning was completely different and changed the mood of each room completely. This highlights the importance of knowing the space you shoot in. If you have the luxury to visit your location beforehand, do so. This is a must if you want to be efficient on the day of your photoshoot.

The light in the afternoon was soft, or at least compared to the one we had in the morning. No beam of light but a light bouncing off the buildings facing our windows. The consequence of that is a lack of light for some shots, so I had to use a little bit more my Strobes on a few of them. For example, for the image of Opéhlie F. ( ) down below

Fujifilm GFX100 + GF 63mm f/2.8 R WR Broncolor Siros L (800ws) 1/125sec f/7.1 ISO250

My flash for the following image was placed camera left to accentuate the light coming from the window.

We used that mirror again, but this time we used it near the window without any flash.

I had to use the couch again, an easy prop that helps make new poses. I was going for a dark mood initiated by the mirror shots. But since we were in the middle of the living room, I had to use at least one flash.

No exception here for the bedroom images. The light coming from the windows was too weak and changing too much, so I used one flash for more control.

And last but not least, for this image, we only opened the window camera left. No additional light was used to make it.
