Dark Budoir with Molly

Feb 5, 2018

Is dark budoir a thing? I dont't know. Whatever, I took a shot of vintage budior and failed. Fortunately.

It is such a nice thing that a lot of photographers are shooting budoir now. Happy, high-key images with women in underwear and a lot of fake painted furniture with accessories that just don't make sense. I had people asking me for it and I always refused. Then I thought that I should give it a shot. If I fail, then at least I'll know it. Plus I'll have a great series that is shot in my own style not someone else's.

Molly is a wonderful portrait/fashion/glamour/budoir model, and the Studio Lightroom is one of the best "vintage budoir" places around, so I was up for a good start. I even ordered a lace gown from China that almost everyone uses in these series. What was not up for the job is my camera system.

I just had my Nikon gear serviced and calibrated, but the autofocus was so far off that 95% of the shots had to be discarded. What remained was not much, so as per usual, I culled out another 50%, and started working from there. I was really upset about it, but then I remembered that this is not my style, not what I was ment to shoot, so I turned from light to dark.
