These 5 Easy Boudoir Poses Are All You Need to Know to Get Started in Boudoir Photography (VIDEO)

Some photographers are a bit intimated by the thought of giving boudoir photography a try—even if they’re adept at portraiture. That’s because shooting sensual models often requires a different style of posing.

If this sounds like you, take a look at the video below in which a top boudoir photographer demonstrates five simple poses that will make your first boudoir assignment a success. You’ll not only feel more confident at the task, but so will your model.

Based in Washington D.C., Marco Ibanez not only demystifies the process, but he provides a free PDF download with more details of his five favorite poses. As you’ll see, the poses he demonstrates are suitable for models of all body types, shapes, and sizes.

Ibanez presents the poses in order of simplicity, so you can became comfortable as you move forward, but even the most “advanced” poses are super simple to master. So take a look, and approach your first (or next) boudoir shoot with confidence.
