As I promised, I went back to that awesome antebellum mansion with a model, Ali Katt was my first pick! I felt that her colorful and unique look would be perfect for this edgy location. I knew I had to be careful about bringing a private client here who isn’t used to the different elements of abandoned houses. The entryway isn’t all that safe or easy, so it was a group effort to safely get in and out. Well worth the effort in my opinion! Let’s get started by sharing these stunning antebellum mansion boudoir photos!
So there was this huge console TV from I’d guess, the 1970’s? Yeah, that was a must! I know these aren’t traditional boudoir photos as most would know, but that would be far more vanilla than taking advantage of a location and look as we have.
Most of these antebellum mansion boudoir photos were all natural window light, but some of these had the assist of my Ice Light and barn doors, very simple and minimalist. When going in a location like this, you want to travel light. This is also my first official photoshoot with my new Fuji X100F! So, this is almost as primal as it gets! Loved the contrast, textures, and colors in this shoot.
Loved the natural lens flare of the incoming sun!
Strictly ambient window light from the setting sun, as we wrap it up. There was a board in the middle of the window that created an interesting but very challenging shadow. The trick was to challenge myself to work with it and do so without driving Ali nuts waiting for me to prefect the angle and composition. We moved into bodyscape and implied nude, quite lovely with the soft light beaming in, that would only be there for a few moments.
I hope you’ve enjoyed this series, stay tuned!
