Shower sessions are so much fun! Get ready to be doused in warm water, bubbles and get steamy all while standing in my studio!
Here are my top 5 tips for posing in the shower to get the best boudoir shower shots and why these poses work so well!
General posing guidance.
Let's talk head to toe boudoir posing guidance.
Head- the classic boudoir head pose is head back, chin to the sky, eye closed mouth just slightly open. You can also practice that tiny smirk smile- if you want to be sexy but not have an RBF a little smile goes a long way. Eyes can be either into the lens, off camera (so to the sides of the camera) closed or looking towards an imaginary second off camera person.
Shoulders- take a big deep breath and relax those shoulders, shoulders up tends to look tense and uncomfortable and we want to exude confidence here!
Arms and hands- make triangles with your arms, play with your hair, touch shoulders, boobs, waist, bums, legs. as a general rule whatever you're doing is perfect other than dangling your arms down by your sides!! Hands should be relaxed and loose.
Body & legs- leg to the camera should be bent when possible shift weight onto hips to pop your hips and bum out and flex and arch your back.
Feet- point toes or stand on tip toes to lengthen legs and slim ankles.
You've just caught me washing myself
Easily the easiest and most obvious is to touch yourself and pretend to 'wash' this usually creates some interesting triangle shapes too.
Any one who has had a shoot with me is sick of me shouting- triangles! We make triangles with our arms to create separation between our bodies and our limbs. It's flattering because you can see all the lovely curves of your body and arms up in the air stretches out your torso and lifts your chest giving an illusion of a slimmer waist (if that's what you're aiming for!)
Catch that water in a real shower or pour water in a studio, pour water onto areas of the body you want to highlight. It gives you something to do and gives the image a focal point.
Hands on the glass
Or boobs on the glass, or bums on the glass, basically if you can squeeze it up against the glass its a shot to include in your album for sure! It can be playful or sensual.
Looking over a shoulder
A good starting pose that allows a shot with a little less nudity or a little more bum depending on your ankle, for varsity remember to move your eyes, chin and remember to arch your back for extra curves!
