Boudoir Lighting and Posing with Marti Newkirk

  • The Orange Studio 1121 North Mills Avenue Orlando, FL, 32803 United States (map)

Many potential customers believe that boudoir photography is only for those with perfect bodies but nothing could be further from the truth. Join Marti as she shares with you how she poses and lights her boudoir customers to showcase their best! We will discuss how to use posing and lighting to bring the attention where you want it to be. What is her least favorite feature and how to divert attention from those areas. What we can’t hide with shadows and posing, we will learn how to handle with composition or camouflage in a variety of creative ways. We will also talk about how to talk to customers to set them at ease during the session. We will touch on advanced composition techniques and where to learn more about them.
