INSTANT LOVE, Silver-halide Ecstasy, Boudoir on instant Film. 

In todays world of OnlyFans and digital dick pics, I would like to draw attention to the art of the Polaroid boudoir. Boudoir is a photographic style featuring intimate, sensual, romantic, and sometimes erotic images of its subjects in a photographic studio, bedroom or private dressing room environment, primarily intended for the private enjoyment of the subjects and their romantic partners. 

Instant photography is the perfect medium, for a Boudoir for a few reasons. For Starters there is only one copy of the photo. This makes not only for a special keepsake, but also greatly reduces the risk of accidentally sending your Grandma nudes instead of little Jenny’s graduation pictures. Secondly, it’s more intimate. Put away the phone, stash the DSLR, turn off the TV and enjoy your parter in all their analog glory. 

Third, it’s dead simple. Anyone can do it and get Fantastic results with very little know how, or equipment!  

So grab you’re favorite instant camera, a pack or two of film from Photodom, your sexiest birthday suit drapery, a consenting parter and lets see that flash! 

I should also mention, although a partner makes this titillating Parisian playtime a bit easier and more fun, in the name of self love, this can absolutely be done alone if your camera has a self timer or if your selfie game is on that next level. You know who you are.   

COSTUMES! 

Nothing in my opinion is sexier then seeing your partner all dolled up just for you! Lingerie, Fishnets, Heels, hot pants, Banana Hammocks, Knee Socks, Leather, Rope, Consider trying something you normally wouldn’t. Art is not made by following the rules. Go bright and Bold, Try some makeup, especially if you have never worn any before! You will be amazed how a little glitter and glam makes you and your partners heart pump a little faster. 

SETTING!

Make Sure you have a private place for you and your partner. This will ensure everyone feels comfortable and make for a more romantic Boudoir session. Get a hotel for the night if you can. There is something special about a new environment that makes us humans feel a little less inhibited. Make it a date. Do something before hand! Talk about it at dinner, go get a drink and discuss some of the activities you hope to engage in later. This will build excitement in both partners and hopefully show through in your shoot!  

LIGHTS! 

If you have heard anything about instant photography, it’s that it requires a lot of light to be successful. Expect to take a few test shots to get the lighting right. Knock down a few lamps, open the blinds ( OoO La La), or purchase an inexpensive panel light to make sure your pictures come out looking crisp and clear. Get creative! Use colored gels if you have them!

SWITCH ROLLS! 

Our goal here is to connect with our partner in a meaningful way, and have a fun positive experience. This means respecting boundaries and making each other feel beautiful, important, and safe. So pass that camera! Let your parter have some fun and be the director! This is sure to make both parties feel more confident and comfortable.

COMMUNICATE! 

Tell your partner how you are feeling. Ask your partner how they are feeling. Things going great!? Give some instructions. Be playful. This is supposed to be fun! Don’t focus to much on getting the best pictures, instead focus on your parter and let the love be as instant as the photos! 

GIFT! 

Give the photos that you took of your partner to them. Let them decide what to do with them. This will surely make for the least worry about the fate of our newly exposed film!!
