How do you decide whether you should use a studio or a location for you next Boudoir Photo shoot? What’s better anyway? So you figure you need a new set of erotic images or boudoir videos. Maybe you updated your look and want to add it to your gallery.
In a traditional photography studios there are blank walls or seamless backdrops with the usual black, white, gray and sometimes colors. Usually, but not always there are some props like a chair, stool or couch. The benefit to this is that you can create the traditional studio looking image, if that’s what you are going for. Another benefit to a photo studio is that you can have a clean background to help focus the attention where you want it, whether it’s on you or what you are doing in the image or video. Another benefit is that you can build a set or bring in set pieces or props to create your own environment for a unique look.
The downside to shooting in a photography studio is that you can usually only get one or two unique looks out of it at a time and that it may get a little dull if you want to have five different looks and you’re relying on the background setting.
Here are some example of fetish and boudoir images we have photographed in studios, some are concept based and have a unique visual esthetic to them that make them more interesting and a perfect choice for studio vs. location.
Erotic & Fetish Photography in Studio
I Need a Lot of Exciting Boudoir Photography Content
What if I want a whole lot of new content for my website? Great! That’s a great opportunity to use a location to get you the variety of backgrounds and scenes to either tell a story or just have a super sexy set of luxurious images that are visually pleasing and have a magazine quality to them.
Some great locations that we have used and recommend if you want a whole set of looks are hotel suites that give a specific luxurious feeling while allowing for versatility in scenes to capture both boudoir photography and erotic videography. For example you can use a suite to shoot an erotic bedroom scene, a sexy business executive scene at desk, or a sultry erotic dance scene against a floor to ceiling window with a city view. Hot about a hot shower scene in a heated marble bathroom. You can even use the hotel elevator or hallway as I have in the examples below. Or go to the swimming pool and spa area to get some lifestyle type images as well. This you could never do in a studio, but a location well chosen will get you a lot of bang for your buck and you can keep it overnight.
Erotic Photography on Location
Some great locations that we have used are, beaches, parks, downtown streets and alleys, all of which create a unique look and if done properly can be unmatched by another’s image. It’s a great way to stand out from the competition. Here are more examples of boudoir photography on location.
Some times you can get the best of both worlds and shoot in a boudoir photo studio that’s has the seamless walls as well as an authentic loft feeling with old wood floor and bare beams and brick walls. In one of our studios there is even a fire escape and big industrial factory type windows. Ultimately it boils down to what you want to accomplish, if you are unsure and want to ask some questions or get suggestions feel free to drop us a line.
