Shoot: Boudoir Poses
I have found personally that most Beaujoire shoots are really only a few poses. Honestly, I think there are only really three or four before poses that majority of people dio however they change their focal length, they change their angle, they change their crop. Other than that, it's really all just about the same poses. So if you are unfamiliar with photographing women, just think of these guidelines for boudoir. So number one out of all this number one to out of all the posing we do. This is the least comfortable by far. Everything else have said so far is be comfortable. Relax. Relax your shoulders like all of that. Not true is were. You are remember, pain is beauty. All right, so the 1st 1 is curved and arch. You will be saying a lot curve or archer back. So, for example, when I say arch your back, a lot of people do this right. Okay, well, that might be OK if you wanted to lift the chest. Perhaps if that's what you're aiming for. But if you just wanted to see more curve in the lo...
wer back, you would actually say kind of lift your bum figure out what you can do to introduce shape. So that might be if it was a standing pose curving that leg way over, arching that back, reaching up anything you can do to give you those lines if it's laying down. If somebody is flat on their stomach, that's not curve. So you might need them to turn to the side and bend their knee. So pops up there. But okay, so just curve, that's what you want to do. It's not going to be comfortable. Which brings me to number two. Number two is relaxing. Repeat, you can tell when someone straining. So what I'll do is I'll get them in the right post and say, OK, remember what that feels like. Keano's Relax, Okay, now pop to that pose, and you can see as they pop over to that post eso relax. To repeat, number three is hands CREss ing the body or face. So any time you're using your hands for Beaujoire, I actually make it more like when I'm actually doing a session. I would make it more like a dance than oppose. We're like a movement, so if I want hands on hips, I tell them to drag their hands up their hips. If I want hands on the chest, it's a crest across your chest. Hands on the face. Drag. Your hands are on the faith, though it is soft essential. And it actually, I think, get somebody more kind of involved in the posing the emotion that you're going for in the eyes versus saying like OK, put your hand in your hair. You know it's much more. They can kind of feel it in the post, so that's a big one. Next one is very eye contact. Not all those who are poses should be looking right at the camera, and a lot of times it's It's much more sensual when they're not so for varying eye contact. I don't mean just look at the camera and then look away. But try and looking down their body or eyes really just down to the ground or looking at a part of their body were looking away. So vary the eye contact because different eye contact communicate something different. And then last is writing Shoot Ah, whole bunch and I dio standing, laying in sitting more often. I will do standing and laying and all of the shots that you see like a hold of right to you. See if with boudoir poses, Um, really, it's less about them moving around and more about you. A lot of times it's you getting a higher angle. So you see different parts. You're moving around the side and switching to, ah, wider aperture lens. You just focus on the eyes or you just focus on the shoes, whatever it may be. So it really is Friday, imposing, but really almost more variety with how you move around. It should actually be work out for you, not just for them.
