Boudoir Photography

Boudoir photography is similar, in some ways, to shooting glamour and tease. But you already knew that, right?

There are significant differences. Most notably, the subject is rarely a pro or semi-pro model, nor does she aspire to be one.

Instead, boudoir subjects mostly hail from the rank-and-file of everyday women. In fact, your next-door neighbor, the babe with three kids, two dogs, and a nice-guy hubby, the one you nod and say "Hi" to almost daily, might be secretly yearning for some classy, sexy, boudoir photos. (Please Note: I'm not saying boudoir subjects might not be as beautiful, alluring, and sensual as glam models, or have lesser status than models in general. I'm just, uhh... saying, I guess.)

Another notable difference: Boudoir subjects, for the most part, prefer their pics to remain private and only available (for viewing) to a select few. Sometimes, only to themselves.

A friend of mine, Ed Verosky, who is a fellow photographer and blogger, has put together a great e-book on the subject of boudoir photography: 10 Ways to Improve Your Boudoir Photography Now.

Don't let the title fool you! This e-book contains way more practical, useful, and idea-inspiring information than simply publishing 10 suggestions to improve your boudoir shooting.

I strongly recommend this e-book to anyone shooting boudoir or considering adding this genre to their photo-repertoire, either as a hobbyist or for those already, or thinking about, pursuing boudoir photography as a business.

Besides all the great info compiled in this e-book, plus the killer shots of some smokin' hot women, you can download 10 Ways to Improve Your Boudoir Photography Now for $5! That's right, a fiver, a fin, a five-spot. Half a freakin' sawbuck! That's about the price of a Big Mac Combo at Mickey D's... Super-sized, of course. Better still, you ain't gonna gain a pound or harden an artery chewing on all the great info and advice in Ed's e-book.

Hey! Don't just take my word for it. Do yourself and your boudoir shooting skills a flavor and purchase 10 Ways to Improve Your Boudoir Photography Now. You'll thank me in the morning. If not, what can I say? Roll over and go back to sleep or go get yourself breakfast at MacDonald's.

PLEASE NOTE: The special, introductory price of $5 was for a "Limited Time" only. Currently, the cost of the ebook is, as of Tuesday, April 13, 2010, at it's originally planned price of $9.95. It remains a great deal IMO! I should have mentioned, when I originally posted about this awesome ebook, that the price of $5 was only for a limited time. My bad. Sorry.

Regular reader of you blog Jimmy
is there a coupon code for your readers because it says $9.95. Still not a bad deal but every little bit helps. When is your PGS DVD going to come out? Keep up the great work

@Anon,

Might have been a limited time introductory price. I'll email the author and ask.

@Anon,

The introductory price of $5 was marked "Limited Time." The author raised the price to its originally planned pricing sometime yesterday. It's now $9.95. Still a good deal, IMO.
