Major Tips In Boudoir Photography

Conceal the hands.

boudoir photographyThere are a lot of things that you would want your boudoir photography shots to focus on and hands aren’t one of them. The typical human hand can take up as much space as the typical human face and that’s not a good ratio to look into. You don’t want the photos to focus on your hands more than your face. They can be distracting and they can attract attention and this is why you need to make sure that you are more or less able to look into the possibility of going for something subtle by concealing your hands. There are a lot of artsy ways for you to get this done. You can raise your hands up above your head while you are striking a pose. You can put it behind you. You can stroke your neck while posing.

Needless to say, the options are next to limitless and you just need to make sure that you are creative and innovative enough with it when you are posing for a boudoir photography shoot. Your photographer can also give you some tips on how you will be able to properly position your hands so make it a point to consult him about this as well when you are figuring out a way to pose. It isn’t as hard as it sounds or looks and you will eventually get the hang of it further down the road. It wouldn’t hurt to practice your poses in advance either so get to posing in front of your mirror whenever you get the chance to do so.

Relax your lips.

Lips that are pressed together make you look stressed and strained and you wouldn’t want that at all in your boudoir photography shots. You should relax it a little. Don’t go for the distasteful duck face as it can make you look overrated and make you look like you are trying a little too hard at posing. Opening the lips up ever so subtly will give you the impression that you are just sitting back and relaxing. If you would like a subtle take on the pouty lips, imagine that you are blowing birthday candles and don’t pucker up your lips too much. You want to look appealing and you don’t have to look trashy while you are at it.

Control where your eyes go.

Eyes can do wonders to a photo and they can control the overall mood and look of the photos that are being taken of you. Try not to look way up or way down unless that’s the kind of look that you are going for. You don’t want to look like you are rolling your eyes at the camera the whole time unless you are going for a horror themed boudoir photography shoot.

Aim to tell a story.

It all depends on the kind of theme that you and your photographer are trying to pull off. It helps if you talk about it and discuss things ahead of time so that you have a solid game plan.
