This shot was taken of Becky, just before she put on her wedding gown. She was a bit nervous so I suggested we take some light hearted boudoir style shots! She was game for that so we did it, and she laughed a lot and I hope it helped her relax a bit.
This is the only one I shall be displaying publicly!
This was shot in raw and converted in Lightroom. Having never shot boudoir style before, I wasn't sure of the lighting and knew that the image would be heavily 'photoshopped' afterwards. Looking at the image now, I love the shape of her face but think I could have filled the shadows a bit perhaps? I'm also not thrilled with the position of her hand and should have asked her to drop it out of the frame a bit.
What do you think?
Thanks
Trudy

I know nothing about these kind of shots. But speaking as that, her hand is a little bright and distracting. Maybe in ps you could darken her hand now that it can't be lowered. But I love the image, its beautiful and I'm sure she will love it........Sandy

This is a great image - however to me it is not soft or personal enough for a "boudoir style" portrait.

I had a play. You can try the steps if you like.

1. I cropped to just above the tatoo (maybe she wants it - no sure)
2. I then rotated the image about 15 degrees clockwise.
3. Warmed up the toning a little on
4. Tweeked the contrast a tad
5. Added a couple of layers
6. Gaussian Blur was then applied to these

I ended up with much softer and more intimate image (at least I thought so) more in the "boudoir style "

For what it is worth - Cheers
Andy

PS. I do use Portrait Professional which does a lot of tricks for me in fixing skin tones and hair. (Yes I did play with the hair and eyes a little in it but I do not think it would effect the above)
