Everything that is old becomes new again
In recent years, film photography has seen a resurgence in popularity. This is likely due to a number of factors, including the increasing availability of film cameras and the growing interest in retro and vintage aesthetics.
There are many reasons why people are choosing to shoot film photography. For some, it is a way to connect with the past and to create images that have a timeless quality. Others appreciate the challenge of working with film and the sense of accomplishment that comes from developing their own prints. And still others simply enjoy the unique look and feel of film photography. For me it is all of these reasons. That is why I recently started offering boudoir photo shoots on film to my customers who prefer this look and style.
Below is a behind the scenes video I created from a boudoir photo shoot shot on Fujifilm color 200 35mm film. The video also features all of the photos from the photo shoot.
Here are some of the reasons why film photography is becoming popular in 2023:
The increasing availability of film cameras - Film cameras have become more affordable and easier to find in recent years. This has made it possible for more people to experiment with film photography. Some of my favorites include the Canon Elan 7E 35mm film camera, Olympus Pen FT half-frame film camera, and the Rolleiflex TLR 120 medium format film camera.
The growing interest in retro and vintage aesthetics - Many people are drawn to the unique look and feel of film photography. The graininess and imperfections of film can add a sense of nostalgia and warmth to images. I prefer how elegant the images look because you don't have 43 megapixels picking up every detail in your skins pores like digital cameras do.
The challenge of working with film - Film photography is a more hands-on process than digital photography. This can be a challenge for some people, but it can also be a rewarding experience. I enjoy how shooting boudoir photography on film really makes you slow down and trains your eye to focus on all details before snapping the photo. I want to get the shot perfect because each roll of film is limited to a set number of photos.
The sense of accomplishment that comes from developing your own prints - Developing your own prints is a rewarding experience. It allows you to take control of your creative process and to see your images come to life in a new way. A long time ago developing your own photos at home was nearly impossible. You had to have a dark room set up with chemicals everywhere. Today the process is somewhat the same, but it's easier than ever to do it. I also made a video on my YouTube channel showing an easy way to develop black and white film at home.
The unique look and feel of film photography - Film photography has a unique look and feel that is not possible to replicate with digital photography. This is one of the reasons why many people are drawn to film photography. Even with digital filters most phones of photo editing apps use, there is a beautiful, raw look to film boudoir photography.
If you are interested in trying film photography, there are a few things you need to do.
First, you need to find a film camera. You can find film cameras at thrift stores, online, and in some camera stores. I have found that buying old or vintage film cameras on eBay to be the best option, specifically from sellers in Japan. They thoroughly inspect the camera and will describe its condition. I have found the most sellers in the United States do not give a complete description because they are likely trying to hide problems with the camera. If the price is very low, expect something to be wrong with the camera.
Second, you need to buy film. Film is available in a variety of formats and speeds. 35mm will be most common to find. Black and white film will be less expensive to purchase than color film.
Third, you need to develop your own prints. You can develop your own prints at home or at a local photo lab. It may be easier, but more expensive to have a lab develop your film. Most labs will offer to print your photos as well as digitally scan them.
Film photography can be a rewarding experience. It allows you to create unique images with a timeless quality. If you are interested in trying film photography, there are a few things you need to do. But with a little effort, you can be taking amazing film photos in no time. However, i would advise to practice on manual mode with your phone or an inexpensive digital camera, because film is expensive and mistakes can add up!

Embrace the timeless beauty of boudoir film photography
Boudoir film photography, which was once considered obsolete, is making a comeback in 2023. There are several reasons why people are gravitating towards film photography, even in this digital age. In this blog post, we will explore why film photography is becoming popular again.
1. The Unique Aesthetics
Film photography has a unique aesthetic that is unmatched by digital photography. The colors, contrast, and grain give images a vintage and timeless look that cannot be replicated by digital cameras. With the resurgence of vintage fashion and lifestyle trends, film photography has become an excellent tool for capturing and creating content that embodies this aesthetic.
2. The Creative Process
Unlike digital photography, film photography is a more thoughtful and deliberate process. There is no instant gratification of seeing the images immediately, which forces photographers to be more intentional with their shots. This process allows for a more meditative and creative approach to boudoir photography, which many photographers find rewarding.
3. The Tangibility
With digital photography, images are often stored on hard drives or cloud storage, making them intangible. Film photography, on the other hand, produces physical prints that can be held, displayed, and shared with others. The tangible aspect of film boudoir photography adds to its charm, and many customers find it more satisfying to hold a physical copy of their work.
4. The Nostalgia
Many boudoir photographers who grew up before the digital age have a sentimental attachment to film photography. With its resurgence, these photographers can relive the nostalgia of their early years in photography. It is also a great way for younger photographers to experience the feeling of film photography and understand the history of the craft.
5. The Challenge
Film photography is a challenging medium, with limited shots per roll, and no opportunity for immediate corrections or deletions. This challenge has inspired many photographers to step out of their comfort zone and experiment with different techniques, compositions, and settings. The result is often a sense of accomplishment and satisfaction that digital photography cannot replicate.
In conclusion, film photography is becoming popular again in 2023 for several reasons, it's cool look, creative process, nostalgia, and challenge. With the rise of vintage trends, film photography is a great option for photographers of all levels to explore and enjoy.

Pure. Sexy. Retro. No filters or digital retouching allowed!
In 2023, why would any photographer want to use a film camera for a boudoir photo shoot?
With digital photography, it is easy to take a shot and delete the image if it's not perfect. However, with film, you have to be more careful about what you shoot. You also need to know what you are doing. You have to understand photography and lighting. This can force you to slow down and think more about each shot, which can lead to more creative and memorable images.
There are many advantages to using a film camera for a boudoir photo shoot. First, film cameras can create a more intimate and romantic atmosphere. The soft, hazy quality of film is perfect for capturing the sensuality of boudoir photography. Finally, film cameras can be a lot of fun to use. There is something about the process of loading film, taking a shot, and waiting for the results that is just plain enjoyable. If you are looking for a unique and romantic way to capture your boudoir shoot, then using a film camera is a great option.
All of the photos posted in this blog post were shot with the Canon Elan 7e film camera, with 35mm black and white Arista EDU Ultra 100 ASA film.
Here are some tips for using a film camera for a boudoir photo shoot:
Choose the right film. There are many different types of film available, each with its own unique characteristics. For a boudoir shoot, you will want to choose a film that is known for its softness and femininity. Some popular options include Kodak Tri-X, Ilford HP5+, and Fujifilm Superia 400.
Experiment with different lighting techniques. Boudoir photography is all about creating a sense of intimacy and mood. Experiment with different lighting techniques to see what works best for you. Some popular options include using soft, natural light, or using dramatic, theatrical lighting.
Don't be afraid to experiment. Boudoir photography is a great way to experiment with different ideas and techniques. Don't be afraid to try something new and see what happens. The worst that can happen is that you end up with a few bad shots. But you might also end up with some amazing images that you will cherish for years to come.

A Weight Loss Journey Of Self Love
The struggle of weight loss and an a lesson of self love
Recently we had the opportunity to photography Ruby who had an amazing story. It its an amazing story of the struggles of weight loss and self love. We are all about self love so we wanted to share this with you. Remember, you are beautiful, and love yourself. Enjoy!
Why is it important to love yourself?
If we want others to love us the way we want to be loved, we have to do that with inside. Someone once told me that whatever weight you're in, someone is dying to be that weight. And sometimes we forget that that other people have other struggles that we are blessed to have. If we do a better job at promoting internally it projects out into the world.
Tell us about yourself.
I've been on a weight loss journey for the last year and a half. I've lost a hundred and ten pounds I have really just been focused on regaining my self-confidence and my motivation and just really making myself a better person and portraying the image that I feel inside. I'm super shy. I know my personality enters the room before I do, but I 'm very shy and reserved and conservative people think because I'm so funny and outgoing that that means that like, I don't get nervous.
What's one thing people don't know about you?
I'm super shy. I know my personality enters the room before I do, but I 'm very shy and reserved and conservative people think because I'm so funny and outgoing that that means that like, I don't get nervous.
What weight loss challenges have you faced?
I think I've been struggling with making a change for years. I've been yo yo dieting probably my whole life. But if I can think back after I had my daughter in 2011, I was at my all time heaviest. Fast forward to 2014. Although she was three years old, I still was suffering with postpartum and depression and I decided to really put some effort and I lost eighty pounds at that time and I felt great and I felt amazing, but I kind of did it not the healthiest way so that I didn't sustain it. I gained it all back. So from 2014 to 2021, I put all the weight back and then some, and I just really got to a point where I wasn't confident or happy with myself any longer. Although I promoted self-love, I wasn't doing a good job for myself.
How did you feel about yourself prior to losing weight?
I think I've always tried to be stylish and. cute, although I would always hear, you know, you're pretty for a big girl.
I think that was one of my biggest pet peeve. I really wanted to focus on reframing that and be pretty for who I really felt that I was and really focus on my self-confidence.
Was it a challenge to bring out your sexy side?
It's always challenging to bring out my sexy side because I like to make weird on accident. Ultimately, more. I was more nervous about like the hair, the makeup, making sure I wore the right outfits because I still am not 100% where I want to be.
So I still have insecurities and flaws.
Why is self love important?
Self-love is important because as we expect others to love us, we need to love ourselves and focus on what we think about ourselves and how we feel about ourselves. Although I've loved myself at every size, I would have never done this a hundred pounds ago, so it felt nice to step outside of the box.
Why is its important to do something special for yourself?
It's important to do something special for yourself and more importantly, to take risks. Take yourself out of your comfort zone because you'll sometimes be really surprised with the outcome.
Were you nervous prior to your boudoir photo shoot?
Before this boudoir photoshoot, I actually was thinking of canceling it like three times. I think as I tell people to take risks and things like that, I need to take my own advice.
If we don't step outside of our comfort zone, we'll never do anything.
How did you feel after your boudoir photo shoot?
I just overall felt really comfortable and it was a great experience. It was also empowering when I saw what actually came out on the other side, the pictures look amazing.
How did you feel after viewing your portraits?
The pictures came out great. They superseded my expectations. It was really hard to narrow down which ones I want.
Should every woman experience a boudoir photo shoot?
Absolutely. Do it. Take a risk You'll be surprised how beautiful you really are.
You are worth it! Now is the time to love yourself. Click the button to experience a boudoir photo shoot with us!
Explore Your Sexual And Sensual Side With An Erotic Couples Photo Shoot In Las Vegas
Always had the desire to create an adult video but don’t know how to get started?
Our clients are everyday women and couples that not only live in Las Vegas, but come from all over the world to explore their sensual side, strengthen their bond, and experience something they have always wanted to do but didn’t know where to go or how to get started.
Intimate videos have become extremely popular with countless adult video and fan-sites online. Many couples and individuals want to make their own adult videos but miss the mark because all they have is a smart phone and a stack of books to prop it up on. Sometimes it works great and sometimes the phone slides down leaving you with a video of your ceiling instead of you and your partner. It happens.
You may want to have some beautiful photos of your spouse or significant other so pull out your trusty iPhone and have them lay on a bed and tell them to look sexy. Meanwhile, you don’t understand lighting, angles, or flattering poses and she keeps asking you if what she is doing looks sexy. You just hope your phone takes a great shot, and it won’t.
It’s ok. I have been there.
Unfortunately I did not have the luxury and discreetness of a smartphone. Growing up I wanted the same thing that you are seeking, some sexy photos of a girlfriend or wife and a sensual video of us together. Here is how it went for me many, many years ago. This is well before I learned photography.
For my photos I had to use a film camera. What is that you may ask? Google it. For those that do know, I would shoot a roll of what I thought were sexy photos only to find out a week later when I received my prints back that the majority of the photos looked horrible because the lighting was bad, weird stuff in the background, and she was in a crazy pose and looked confused.
For my videos I had to use a hi8 camcorder. Again, Google it. All I remember from my sexy home video was that one of us forgot to lock the bedroom door and it being an extremely awkward time having your kid walk in on you in the act asking whats going on and why that video camera was there, while we are scrambling for covers and clothes.
Needless to say, that was my first and last time making my own sexy home video.
Do yourself a favor. Learn from my mistakes.
First, just because your phone takes photos and video, that does not make you a photographer or videographer. Understanding lighting, posing, years of school, practice, working, and having professional gear does.
Second, If you attempt to do this on your own and your first time is a complete disaster like mine, do not expect for there to be a second opportunity .
It will not happen. EVER!
Last, leave it to the professionals. We have the experience and skills to make your first time fun, memorable, and exciting. After that you can try it at home for your second time and hopefully more!
It may feel awkward having someone else in the room while your are making your intimate video and that is understandable. With some of our Boudoir After Dark collections we feature an erotic couples photo shoot prior to your video. This not only allows you the opportunity to create some amazing photos together, it also lets you become acclimated and comfortable with me the photographer and the intimate photos and video you are creating.
Our customers trust Las Vegas Glamour Boudoir for their erotic couples boudoir photography and videos because of our privacy. We will not publish anything online or anywhere without your consent. In most cases (unless there are photos to be retouched), the video and photos from your Boudoir After Dark shoot are immediately deleted from our camera and computer once they have been transferred to your USB drive, leaving you the only copy.
If you want to capture the passion of intimacy with some sexy photos and video of touching, kissing, and cuddling, or more, we have you covered.
Your comfort and privacy is our top concern. It may seem odd at first, but many couples left feeling more confident and want to experience it again!

Looking For Exciting Things To Do In Las Vegas During The Day That Aren't Gambling Or Partying?
Make Vegas memories with a boudoir photo shoot on our blackjack and craps table!
There are many fun and exciting things to do in Las Vegas while on vacation. It doesn't matter if you are arriving as a family, a couple, or just by yourself you want to do something fun and what you can't do back home.
Once you have experienced the fountains at the Bellagio, seen the city from the top of the Strat, rode the observation wheel at the Linq, or survived the freak-show on Fremont Street, you could be running out of options to stay entertained.
You could go eat at a nice restaurant, see a concert or show, hit the pools, go to a club, drink, or even gamble. However, most of these activities can be done back home where you live.
Trust me, I lived in boring Missouri and could do most of these things anytime of the week.
One experience you likely can't find back home is a boudoir photo shoot. To go even further, one experience you DEFINITELY can't do back home is a boudoir photo shoot on top of a craps table or a blackjack table. This is a true Las Vegas experience that you can only find here at Las Vegas Glamour Boudoir.
Gambling, shows, dinner, and clubs in Vegas can be a fun experience. However, one thing they do not give you are great memories. Unless you hit the jackpot and win Megabucks or are pulled on stage to be part of the performance, or came to get married, you may forget the majority of your vacation in a few months.
One way to create some lifelong Vegas memories is to experiencing a boudoir photo shoot on top of our blackjack and craps table! The boudoir photo shoot is an exciting experience that you get to be the star of, plus, you get to make beautiful portraits that you will share, love, and remember the time you had FOREVER!!!
We have had customers to us for a boudoir photo shoot to celebrate a birthday, a break-up, an engagement, a bucket list activity, memories before pregnancy, a gift for a significant other, or just because. We even had a couple come in to do a boudoir photo shoot prior to getting married by Elvis, and another before she went skydiving!
There are so many things to do in Vegas while on vacation. There is no doubt that when you come you will have an amazing time! Just remember to make your experience memorable.
