While there are so many things to learn, posing is definitely high on the list to learn. So when I can, I take a posing class to work on all of the different poses that are possible.
The last few years I have been taking a posing class with Melody Dollarhide of Let's Get Boudie. It has been an absolute blast. Meeting other photographers who are shooting boudoir, getting assistance on posing and just getting a chance to have a good conversation about boudoir. Not everyone in my life wants to chat about it as much as I want to.
For this class, it was at a Victorian house in Webb City Missouri! It was so unique. There were a ton of spaces to photograph in as well as a claw foot bathtub. I even got a chance to do a Boudoir Mini at the house... I will be doing a blog post about it soon and will put the link in here when it's up. But I wish I had more chances to photograph in there. Maybe I will again.
If you ever have a chance to go to a posing workshop, it is seriously good practice. With this one, we had several women modeling for us as well as a couple. So there is a ton of chances to learn and get some amazing images into our portfolio. You get to try poses and angles that you have been wanting to try. With a little less stress.
If you are ever interested in Minis like these definitely keep an eye out on our social media or sign up for our newsletter. (I promise it only comes out once in a great moon when I remember it)
But there are a ton of amazing opportunities that will always be coming up. Just keep an eye out for the one you are the most interested in!
