Nancy - Portraits of Dallas - Dallas Photography - 2

Light Style of Boudoir

Boudoir is a style that brings up many meanings to different people. I prefer the lighter style of boudoir that concentrates on the mood and character of the model. There is a heavier sexy style, and there is my style. Modest and shy mixed with a little bit of sassiness. I worked with Nancy on 1 shoot before this TFP shoot. The style of the two shoots was very different, but she pulled them off with no problems.

Model and concept

Nancy is a developing fighter, model, and really down to earth young woman located in the north Dallas area. Modeling is her passion, and I have been really fortunate to collaborate with her on different shoots. The concept for the shoot was “Lazy Sunday Boudoir”. Local creative Pilar Del Carmen (@ballerinapili on insta) was onsite to help with make MUA and styling. Both ladies did an amazing job with this collaboration.

Camera and Gear

I packed my Sony A7 with my Sony Zeiss 35mm f1.4 lens for this boudoir session. For this shoot, I promised myself I would only use one lens for this shoot, and I stayed true to that promise. I never tried shooting portraits and any sessions with a wide angle lens like the 35mm, but I am very pleased with the results.

What I learned from this session

The Sony Zeiss 35mm f1.4 lens was a head-scratcher for me. I normally stay around 4-5 feet from my subject for portraits, but I found myself wanting to get closer and closer to my model with this lens. After the first hour, I think I convinced myself to stay further away
