Playing with Paint
Paint Boudoir Photography
I like to try new things with my boudoir photography so when I came across this idea I was psyched to try it! Definitely not an original idea but a great one just the same.
Not painting a person. My skill in painting canvas is extremely limited, let alone painting people. No…I wanted to splatter paint. To play with paint and see how it could be used on a naked body.
This idea was inspired by a photo I came across out of Atlanta. This photographer used black lights and glow in the dark paint (one day I will also do this!) but I couldn’t see any reason why regular paint and light wouldn’t work!
I found a model in an artist friend of mine. It was a perfect fit. An artist being spattered with paint? Makes sense!
My friend wore only her underwear so we could get as much paint on her skin as possible. But since I don’t like showing nips or vag (absolutely not my style!) we posed her in a way that covered her most intimate parts.
Once she was in the first pose, I scooped paint on to my big brush and went crazy spattering it all over her. She jumped every time the paint hit her which caused us both to giggle.
There were four colors used – blue, pink, yellow and purple. We changed poses and tried a few different things, spattering more paint on the untouched skin as we went.
And the outcome was sensational! Absolutely gorgeous!
Then we changed paint style
She washed the paint spatter off then we used some pastel paint I had made our of diaper cream, lotion, and dollar store eye shadow. Yeah, you read that right – I was trying to save money on body paint by making my own, but the time and money spent to make it wasn’t worth it…at all.
We put her into a pose and I painted the pastel ‘paint’ on to each palm and she gave herself pastel-colored palm marks all over the exposed parts of her body. These photos are absolutely gorgeous, too.
I’m so excited to be offering this option to my clients and I can’t wait to throw paint at my next willing client haha!
I’d love to hear what you all think of this! Do you like the paint?
