How to Specialize in Sensual Female Figure Photography

As a photographer, you want to choose an area of specialization in order to make a name for yourself. Sensual female photography is a specialization that can be quite profitable for your photography studio. Sensual photos do not necessarily mean that the model will be nude, but there is obviously a market for art photography of the female form.

Lighting is very important when taking sensual photos. If the lighting is too harsh the photo will look garish and that is the opposite of what you are trying to achieve. If you are unable to bounce light off of the ceiling, try draping scarves over the light fixtures in the room to give your sensual photos subdued lighting.

Showing just a portion of a female torso can provide the sensuality that you are looking for in your work. It is especially important to photograph the lines and curves of the female body form. A close up a your subject's face that focuses on the lines along her jaw or her nose can produce wonderfully sensual photos.

You may be wondering how you can market your sensual photography. For starters, you can test the waters of stock photography. Stock photography houses are always looking for sensual female photographs.

In addition to the stock houses, advertise that your studio offers boudoir photo services. You would be amazed by the number of women that want to take sensual photos of them to give to their husband or boyfriend for their birthday or on Valentine's Day.

One of the services that you should offer is the opportunity to take the sensual photos in the privacy of their own home. Some women will be self conscious about taking semi-nude photos of them in a photography studio, but will have no problem doing it in the comfort of their own home. Even better is to offer a discount if they get a girlfriend to have some boudoir photos taken too.
