  1. I recently bought the e-book and I am very happy with it! Any news on
    future ebooks? I would love to see more lighting set-ups and diagrams for
    sofas, walls, mirrors, chairs, hallways, stairs. Let me rephrase that,
    anything which is not a studio! Another thing I would be interested in is

  8. Do you recommend using umbrella or softbox in boudoir shoot? Do they make
    any difference?

    1. +Jason Yang You are going to want a larger softbox for boudoir shoots. The
      softbox will give you more control of the lighting and allow the light to
      be softer. If you have a large enough white umbrella you can always use it
      as a shoot through and that will normally come out fine. Main differences
      being controlling where the light hits and how soft the lighting is.

  9. Excellent video…I’m new to boudoir photography, but this will really

  10. Thanks for the setup tip, I’m gonna try it next boudoir shoot I do! Also,
    BEAUTIFUL model! She is STUNNING!

    the sideof the bed. thats more dramatic for boudoir.
