This is also an excellent field guide that can be taken to photo shoots on a tablet or computer to be used as a lighting reference for the photographer and a posing reference for the model (having an official reference guide will make both parties much less nervous).

Although boudoir photography is as old as the camera itself, it’s only in the last decade that it has become a popular and legitimate art form that many women seek out as gifts for their spouses.

Many photographers have made a lucrative career out of it and portrait photographers often offer it as a secondary service to supplement their income.

Over the years Michael Zelbel developed a method to shoot wonderful beauty photos with a set of lighting gear, that is so small, it fits into my hand luggage when traveling. Which enabled him to walk into any client’s bedroom and turn it into a stage for breathtaking boudoir photos within minutes.

As unlikely as it sounds, a bedroom is an ideal location for taking beauty and nude photos. It gives you substantial opportunities for manipulating the light and positioning your model, which makes it, in essence, a studio. Plus, for non-professional models, relaxing in a bedroom is much easier. Zelbel used to use large gigantic softboxes, and octaboxes, and powerful monoblocks, but he found that a small mobile lighting kit was much more practical and worked just as well.

“Too many guides on beauty photography feature examples photos which are a selection of the top photos from the portfolio of the author. I followed a radically different approach. This ebook is an extremely honest book. I used a single photo extensive session to demonstrate all my lighting setups, all poses, clothes and techniques discussed in the book.” -Michael Zelbel
