MENAKSHI BOUDOIR SHOOT
PURPOSE: To develop a marketable, fashionable, and elegant beauty and boudoir product for LDPhotography to use on printed material to show potential clientele.
Images below are not owned nor created by LDPhotography and are used for instructional and illustrative purposes only.
- THEME: Theme is boudoir/lingerie. The session expects to be between 60-90 minutes in length of total shooting time. Theme DOES include mild nudity on set, for example, model may have exposed breasts on set, but non exposed nipple/areola to the camera. Model may have exposed bottom to camera as shown in style images.
Secondary theme is using metallic “Flash” Tattoos to add jewelry and flair. Flash tattoos are also a good way to make a nude shoot more modest by using the tattoos to discretely and tastefully cover up private areas.
Overall theme is that of an attractive woman, in casual and unassuming attire (think tank top/blue jeans) with a sexiness underneath. The story unfolds using natural window light, capturing her as she playfully undresses. More than undressing, shows her checking her email/phone, turning the music up, placing a corkscrew and a couple of wine glasses out, along with a bottle of wine. She continues undressing, and goes to the window, as if she is looking to see if "someone" is coming, and she prepares for the shower.
[During this sequence between the partial undressing and the shower, we can probably slip you into a bathrobe, to give you the "appearance" of being nude, but not actually being nude. After this part of the session, then we'll put the tattoos on you and shoot the "behind the glass" scene. Once you come from the shower, for the final scene, this will have you in either a lacy bottom or casual "boy shorts" and a tank top/topless look. Looking out the window, playing on the bed, looking at your phone, smiling, laughing, etc. This is where the most attention will actually be paid to the metallic art and "parts" of your body such as arms, legs, shapes, etc.
The plot twist and climax of the shoot comes from you pouring only ONE glass of wine, and then sit back in the "blur" and either watching TV or "thinking". I really would love for the beginnings of the shoot to be in Black and White, with the climactic ending in color.}
- WARDROBE: I want this to be a simple design/style. Either very pretty, lacy panties, or boy shorts. Ideally, I would love it to be a casual to sexy shoot. Simple blue jeans, and a tank top, or fitted t-shirt with a one shoulder messenger bag. I think the simplicity of the wardrobe is the key element of the session to sell the believably, and the intimacy. I also feel that by keeping the simpler wardrobe, it will maintain the classiness and comfort of the session.
- HAIR & MAKEUP: I would like for the makeup to be done, but simplified. A natural look. If you can do your own makeup, that would help greatly. If not, please let me know, and I will go out and hire an MUA. This may effect the shooting time, because of the MUA's schedule.
Hair will be relatively easy. I would like it in a lightly braided pony tail. The example is shown below.
- TIMES & LOCATION: This session will be a mainly natural light session (no studio lights/flash). Because of this, timing is crucial. Required would be to either shoot early afternoon on Thursday or Friday morning. I would prefer Friday morning as early as possible, but I know the METRO doesn't start until after 1p on Fridays. Would you be able to get a cab to me?
The session will be where I am staying, which as of right now, is the HYATT PLACE by Al Rigga. Less than a 5 minute walk from the METRO station. If it changes, I will let you know.
If, for your comfort, you would like to bring an escort, please let me know, and arrangements can be made for him/her during the session.
- COMPENSATION: This will be a Work Made for Hire with the compensation of $600AED for up to 3 hours of PHOTOGRAPHY. (prep, makeup, and instructional times are not included)
Rate is guaranteed upon arrival but will be released at the end of the session. (whether the session takes 1 hour or the full 3 hours, the rate is guaranteed). I will be paying cash, so ask for some form of receipt if possible for my records.
As a courtesy, unless other arrangements are made, I normally release one head shot, and one image of choice to the model digitally for portfolio use. Release images are watermarked unless other arrangements are made.
- USE OF IMAGES. Images will be used at my studio for studio promotions, competitions, studio marketing, and for print samples for clients. I do reserve the right to use in tasteful web promotion to include social media, but will consult with you, when possible, prior to the placement of any image where nudity, or implied nudity is contained within.
- ADDITIONAL IMAGES. Additional images, will be available in a web gallery that is password protected. From that gallery, you will be able to download or order images for a printed album, or for your own personal use.
I am really looking forward to meeting you and working with you. Thanks.
