After working with Angel White two years ago at the Hotel De Vie, I jumped at the chance of another shoot with her when she toured Cambridgeshire a short while ago.
I didn’t get the opportunity to discuss any specific shoot styles with her for this shoot, but knew that a boudoir or lingerie shoot would definitely be on the cards, with some fashion to follow and that’s exactly how things worked out.
The studio we were shooting at, LovePhoto in Newmarket, Suffolk, has a superb boudoir set. The furniture is ornate, classically styled and very white, ideal for stylish boudoir pictures. I decided to go with black and white for this shoot, just to make things a little more interesting.
I also wanted to utilise the reflection from the mirror on the set. The ambient lighting was showing a lot of background reflection, but I knew that if I got the lighting just right that would disappear and we would be left with just Angel’s figure looking back. It seemed to work quite well!
The sofa is lovely piece of furniture and extremely comfortable. Angel seemed keen to try it out and work around it so a slight change in position for me meant we were able to get all of it in.
All too quickly the hour we had allocated to the boudoir part of the shoot passed, so we moved on to a bit of fashion – more of that later!
