Modern Love Photography vulnerability workshop with Le Boudoir Studio

August 18, 2014

Vulnerability. What does it mean? By definition it means “open to moral attack, criticism or temptation”; Brene Brown’s definition of vulnerability is “uncertainty, risk and emotional exposure.” Feeling comfortable and at ease on camera is especially important in boudoir photography; being exposed emotionally on camera creates beautiful photos. Emotional exposure is a great way to describe the workshop that Jodi Lynn of Le Boudoir Studio was able to attend recently put on by Modern Love Photography, owned by Denise Birdsong. Denise enjoys mentoring other boudoir photographers through her Modern Love Photography workshops. A photographer mentoring other photographers is a powerful tactic in ensuring the photography work is always current; staying in line with the current trends. Jodi Lynn is passionate about her boudoir business and was honored to have a chance to learn from Denise Birdsong.

Le Boudoir Studio gets vulnerable with Modern Love Photography

Boudoir photographers have to evoke emotion from every client in order to ensure stunning photos. This can sometimes be challenging for a photographer and that’s why it’s important to grow as a photographer through workshops such as this one. Jodi Lynn of Le Boudoir Studio prides herself on networking and learning from other professional photographers. This keeps her photography skills current and ensures that our clients receive the best boudoir photos possible! When Jodi was offered the opportunity to attend a Modern Love Photography workshop in San Francisco that focused on “vulnerability” in regards to boudoir photography; she had to attend!

The first workshop shoot was Jodi Lynn photographing while Denise coached and mentored on how to help bring out the flirtatious/desire look out on camera. Not only does the subject on camera have to get to a vulnerable place; the photographer does too.
