As this is our last blog post for 2015, we thought it should be something not only inspiring but also a little different. On the last day of the Photo & Film Expo on the Vanguard Training Stage, Chantal decided to demonstrate how to photograph the beautiful milk bath.
The milk bath has always been something that has fascinated women throughout the ages, the most famous of those was Cleopatra. She was said to be the most beautiful woman on earth, her soft radiant skin was the envy of everyone, and she said her secret was to bathe in donkey's milk. She used to add honey, lavender and rose petals to scent it, but as you can imagine, this is just not practical to do in a photo-shoot situation.
Therefore, we re-created the milk bath scene using a kiddies blowup pool filled with warm water, a bottle of Fenjal Bath Oil and a bunch of flowers. While Monique did Roxy's gorgeous hair and makeup, we set everything up. The set included a ladder, a versatile Vanguard tripod and Photon Continuous lights.
We just love how the water moves around the body, and how sensual and beautiful the Milk Bath is. It is definitely something we want to do again.
Here is a peak at the gorgeous Roxy in the Milk Bath:
The ladies at femme fatale boudoir would like to thank everyone who attended the talks, and especially a big thank you to our fabulous sponsors: Photon Lighting and Vanguard Camera Bags & Tripods for the opportunity to not only represent them, but also for allowing us to demonstrate how to use their wonderful products on stage at the Photo & Film Expo.
