This particular boudoir photograph showcases exactly how important lighting is to all photography, but also to boudoir photography in particular. Although I frequently use a more flat light style called beauty lighting in my photography studio, this image highlights how directional lighting from one lighting source can truly make an image spectacular. The directional light shows off my client's physique and form, including both her feminine curves and her strong muscles. this style of lighting can be especially powerful for fine art nude images like this one. Although you can use it with a client in lingerie or other clothes, the unbroken lines of the female form are photographed in especially pleasing ways with this style.
