Your own boudoir photo – nude art as print on canvas
Nudes have always been a respectable form of artistic expression. Goya, Gauguin, Rubens and so many other famous artists have painted priceless nudes that are now hanging on the walls of museums all over the world. Many famous photographers have reached fame by creating magnificent photos of nudes. There is a new form of nude art that is gaining popularity called boudoir photography. As a print on canvas, boudoir photography can be your way of owning a magnificent nude photo, with a twist: the photo is your own. Print Studios can help you make your boudoir photograph a high quality piece of art.
Boudoir photography has appeared on the front pages of glamorous fashion magazines for years. We are all familiar with photographs of gorgeous partially undressed fashion models or celebrities. But, boudoir photograph can be a photo of any women – your wife, girlfriend or fiancée, or your own, taken in a romantic setting, in a sexy lingerie or nude. High quality photo, taken with a good taste and printed on canvas, it can be a fantastic piece of art on your bedroom wall. The trick is in a good taste, high quality photo and very good quality canvas print.
Interestingly, boudoir photography fashion gained popularity as brides-to-be wanted to give a very special gift to their future husbands. Or, very often, wives wanted to send their sexy photos to their husbands serving their countries in distant wars or working overseas.
The key is in good taste
To make a clear distinction between porn and nude art, the boudoir photo has to be in a very good taste. The best nude photos are not actually showing much and are often taken from the side or from behind, under an unusual angle, in a discrete lighting or with a strategically placed piece of clothing. It is a good idea to browse some photography books before attempting to take your first nude photo, to get an idea of possible angles that would show your wife or girlfriend from the best angle.
The lighting is very important. Mute lighting would create a moody, romantic photo and glaring, strong light would only enhance every blemish.
Make the background very simple. A velvet curtain or satin bedding in dark colors would provide neutral background and enhance the contours of the body.
Once your photographs are on your computer, look for ways to take parts of photos that look most artistic and show your model at her best. Just a glimpse of a back or a leg can be more erotic than frontal nudity.
Try making your photos black and white. For some reason, black and white photos always look more artistic than the color photographs.
Play with photo software like Photoshop to see what different effects you can get from your photos. Crackles, frescoes, mosaics and many other effects can turn your photo into a totally unexpected art form.
Since your plan was from the beginning to print your nude photos on canvas, use the highest resolution your camera is capable of. No phone camera will do. This is particularly important if you want your photos enlarged. The larger the photo, the more grainy it will be if your resolution is not high. If you are not very good photographer and would still like to have a boudoir photo of your wife or girlfriend, or you are a women and would like to have your own boudoir photo taken, look for a reputable boudoir photographer in your area. If they are professional, they will allow you to bring your own props, or bring a friend as a support, and will give you a DVD with all your photos. Once you choose the one (or more than one) you like best, send them to us for printing on canvas. Downloading photos to our website is very simple.
You can choose the way you want your canvas print to be made: on paper, on rolled canvas or on stretched canvas. Your photo will be printed at 1440 dpi on our Epson printers, on the poly-cotton blend canvas or Archival quality Chromata White canvas. We use museum grade varnish to ensure lasting quality.

While it might look daring and even naughty to create your own nude photo, if the photo is of good quality and tasteful, you will enjoy it for many years and it will make you smile in your old age. Your kids might have some questions, so be prepared to deal with them.
