Featuring Melisa Mendini

Watch 16 minutes of pure information that helps you to replicate and evolve your very own interpretation of a sensual, sexy look.

Soft series are more sensitive and elegant than bold glamour portraiture and nudity is more often implied than explicit. Creating sensual series means taking variations of candid and posed photographs of the subject partly dressed or in lingerie.

Because sensuality is a subjective term, the way you approach the creation of your sensual photography will depend on your own artistic aesthetic feeling and how you want to market your work. In my opinion, “sensual” also stands as a synonym for an aspect of “boudoir photography”. Vice versa boudoir photography naturally contains the sensual/soft element.

In conclusion: soft, seductive, and elegant with a touch of class.

Dan, that was an outstanding tutorial. Love the softness of the images. Thanks for sharing your techniques with us. The original images were great and the post editing created a very nice look. Best to you, Mike
p.s. Melisa was great with her posing. true beauty.

One of the most complete discussions of factors to create softness I have seen. Thank you! Good to see you using Vimeo – higher quality video and no need to censor artistic nudes. The final portraits are really lovely. Kudos to model, MUA and, of course, the photographer.
