Art Of Boudoir Photography With SpeedLights By Michael Zelbel.

boudoir photography books

Photographing the female body is a beautiful art form, but without learning the right skills you’ll end up having the reputation of being a GWC (Guy with Camera) who can only take cheesy photos. Learn the right techniques and you’ll be able to take gorgeous and artistic photos of the most beautiful of subjects in the most sensual of locales. The Art of Boudoir Photography will help both newbies and advanced glamour photographers to learn how to take their boudoir photographs to the next level.

Michael Zelbel takes a unique approach and teaches you all his lighting setups within one photo shoot, which is a true testament to his skills as a photographer. He doesn’t hire a professional model (he uses his wife), and he doesn’t rent out the presidential suite at an upscale hotel (he uses his own bedroom). With this unique method of teaching, Zelbel gives you insight to realistic lighting setups and techniques that you can begin using right away without having to spend thousands of dollars on equipment.

Zelbel’s boudoir photography books specifically teaches how to take boudoir photos with speedlights, so if you enjoy using studio lights more than this book might not be for you. However, for those photographers who prefer using speedlights, this book will blow your results through the roof.

When you go to a photo shoot what do you do? Do you just start taking photos blindly hoping to capture great moments? If yes, then you’ve squandered great moments to take amazing photos. Every photo shoot requires skillful planning and advance preparation. With the Beijing Blueprint, Zelbel teaches you exactly how to think ahead on each photo shoot so you’ll be able to get the maximum results.

Zelbel takes you through the planning he did before a complicated shoot in Beijing to help you get started thinking about all the different facets of a photo shoot. Your planning does not need to be as complicated as his, but by showing you his lengthy preparation procedure, you’ll start thinking more about aspects of a photo shoot that you may have never even thought about before. By being more prepared, you will be able to maximize the output of every photo shoot.

Note: On the first page of the boudoir photography books there is a link to bonus materials. Make sure you download these great materials before you read this book.

“I recommend this program – both amateur and veteran photographers can take something away from Zelbel’s planning ideas. The author doesn’t claim to have all the answers, he uses what works for him. There’s a nugget or two of gold in the Beijing Blueprint that everyone can add to their bag of tricks.”
