Learn My Favorite Affordable Light Source for Boudoir Photography

 

 

Have you ever struggled with knowing what kind of lighting is good for portraits and boudoir photography?

I know that I've struggled with this for years, and there are all these fancy lighting stores out there trying to sell you thousands of dollars of lighting equipment. Seriously, if I could go back to day one and just get this one piece of lighting equipment, it would have changed everything for me and saved me thousands of dollars.

Lucky for you, you don't have to spend all this money on lighting equipment the hard way like I did. and. I'm going to share with you one of the easiest lights that I use. It's literally just turn it on and go and is under $100. This light that I used is called a ring light.  If you want the same one that I use, you can just go to boudieshorts.com/ring light. This will bring you directly to the light that I use.

Now, you might be thinking, “Aren't ring lights for headshots?”  Yes!  This is exactly how I found out about this light.  But, it works amazing for any kind of portraits and boudoir. The cool thing is that it's continuous light, which means it doesn't only go off when you click your camera.  It's continuously lit so that you can do your exposure settings and everything around it just like you do with natural lighting.

You are going to be surprised at how beautiful and natural this light looks. I really hope this tip helps you save thousands of dollars on unneeded lighting equipment.
