Boudoir Shoot at the SWPP Convention

Every January, I visit the SWPP Convention for photographers, to get ideas and inspiration.  As well as the trade show, there’s a vast range of classes on everything from wedding to architectural photography.

There are also lots of opportunities to go on an actual shoot with another photographer, and perhaps learn about a new style of photography that you would like to try out or incorporate into your business.  This year, I decided to do just that and enrolled on a natural light boudoir session with John Denton.

Our model was the lovely (and extremely patient!) Gabrielle Terry.  With 18 of us all packed into a hotel bedroom, as you can imagine, there wasn’t a great deal of space, so we were split into groups, and took it in turns to take our shots.  Not only was this a great exercise in posing, lighting and directing a model, it was also quite challenging having to come up with ideas in a matter of minutes.  Photographing a model with 15 other photographers was quite a new experience for me!  However, I absolutely loved it, especially working with the changing light quality and direction (soft, diffused daylight and bright, contrasty sunlight).  Here are some of my favourite shots from the afternoon.
