Boudoir literally means the ‘lady’s private room.’ Every time I bring my camera to my face, I aim to enter that room.
As I explore shooting with film, I’m forced to slow down. First, to learn the components of this new instrument in my hand. Next, to think of each frame as a valuable piece of the story puzzle and to put every ounce of my efforts into every one. Then, with each shot so precious, I focus more on my subject to get them to open up as I click the shutter.
The doors to private rooms are opened and I draw closer to the true meaning of boudoir photos; it has little to do with the removal of clothing and everything to do with the breaking down of barriers. I am finding more openness and honesty with every frame. Thanks to the beautiful Britany for practicing with me and taking me to that little sun kissed room.
