Nude, Dramatic Boudoir Fine Art Photography

Nude, Dramatic Boudoir Fine Art Photography, depicts dramatic photography. It is done to express the artist’s perceptions and emotions. Boudoir photography is a genre of photography that involves female subjects in sexually suggestive or sensual poses. Its emphasis is on the aesthetic qualities of the subject.

There are many elements that can be used to identify boudoir photography. None of them are exclusive or guarantee that a photograph is best classified as boudoir. Generally, the subject is in some state of undress, whether wearing something revealing such as a dressing gown or even partially nude, perhaps obscured by an object in the room or hidden by the angle of the camera. Many boudoir photographs play on the idea of teasing the subject, suggesting more than is actually shown. This is an important distinction from erotic photography, where the emphasis is very much on the reveal.

Boudoir photography is often set in an idealized environment, such as an elegantly decorated bedroom or naturally beautiful outdoor space. Boudoir photography is often commissioned by the subject as a gift for a lover or spouse, so commonplace personal environments (such as the subject’s actual bedroom) are common as well.

Although the term came into being later, boudoir photography is as old as the earliest photographic processes. It draws on elements of sensual painting and printmaking that were distinct from–yet related to–erotic art. Boudoir photography became popular with the onset of new commercial printing methods in the 20th century. It was a major part of the pinup craze of the 1940s and 1950s.
