Excerpt from my Portraiture Reference Guides, Book 3: Boudoir and Maternity
“Boudoir is inherently suggestive, which allows it to take on a more enigmatic form. Here you can imagine Madeline’s body as an abstract landscape. I placed her at the bottom third of the photograph, which creates a sense of earth and sky, and prevents the “horizon” from dividing the photograph in half. You may even sense a path created by the line of her arm, which gracefully travels from the bottom left corner, over her torso, to the top of her hip. The curves of her body become shapes and shadows which adds to the mystery and allure of the image.”
