WHAT YOU’LL LEARN
01 CLASSIC BOUDOIR IN LINGERIE
Classic boudoir is the quintessential style of boudoir – in lingerie with a bedroom set. You can shoot this in all different types of styles. In these lessons, Kara Marie shows you how to achieve a classic, timeless look. She starts with confidence-building, comfortable poses before moving into more challenging, sensual posing.
02 CLASSIC BOUDOIR IN THE SHEETS
The white sheet is a boudoir style that is beautiful for all body types and ages – everyone looks good in a white sheet. In this session, Kara Marie gives you all the considerations on materials and tones. She shows you how to shape and style the sheet while bringing you through the flow of poses that is most efficient for this style. And she pays special attention to the shots most likely to be turned into wall art.
03 CONTEMPORARY BOUDOIR – CLOTHED
Contemporary boudoir style is an excellent way to test the waters of boudoir with a client who comes in for a traditional portrait shoot. The wardrobe can be normal street clothes, such as a simple sundress, but you can add a boudoir feel by exposing more skin, creating interest with shaping the body and doing detail shots, and by shifting to a Vogue-style lighting. Creating a contemporary boudoir feel is all about getting playful and adjusting the mood.
04 CONTEMPORARY BOUDOIR – IMPLIED NUDE
Implied nude boudoir is classic, elegant, and so popular with clients. Kara Marie shows you how to accomplish this look through minimal wardrobe and careful posing. If you incorporate these into your boudoir shoots, you will have many happy clients.
05 WHITE SHIRT BOUDOIR
The white shirt is a great place to start for someone who is nervous to get into boudoir. It is perfect for creating candid, natural-looking shots. It’s also the easiest piece of wardrobe to have in studio that can be used for anyone.
06 FINE ART BOUDOIR
Shooting fine art boudoir is a creative and feeling process. When you take an experimental approach, you’re going to find shots that make your heart sing. In these sequences, we explore detail shots, motion shots with fabric, grain, lighting, and blur, and we learn to approach your client as the art that they are.
07 ENVIRONMENTAL BOUDOIR
You don’t need a studio to shoot boudoir – any outdoor location with great light will do! In this lesson, Kara Marie takes you on location in beautiful Lake Como and surrounds. Working with wardrobe that is acceptable in public – a bathing suit and kimono – she gives great tips for choosing location, lighting, and working outdoors.
08 “KARA MARIE” STYLE
Kara Marie has developed her style over the last several years. Right now, that style is characterized by a lot of motion, blur, imperfect camera technique, anonymous images, black and white, and lots of grain. Here she gives you an inside look into how she creates these playful, experimental images.
09 BONUS: BRIDAL BOUDOIR
Kara Marie started shooting boudoir with bridal boudoir. This is a lovely little demonstration of a 3-minute shoot you can do with a bride on her wedding day before she gets fully into hair and makeup and her dress. This can be done in a hotel room, bridal suite, or wherever she is getting ready, and can be done with the veil or a lace robe.
10 BONUS: DARK & MOODY SENSUAL BOUDOIR
When we think of boudoir, we often think dark and moody. In this lesson, Kara Marie teaches you how, in even a bright room, you can achieve that just-a-kiss-of-light look that makes everything more sensual and intimate. This shoot has a casual atmosphere and is easy for your client while still producing steamy images with lots of variety to choose from.
11 BONUS: MALE BOUDOIR
It’s great to incorporate male boudoir into your portfolio. A lot of people will request it for their husbands, boyfriends, and partners. Here you’ll learn poses and lighting that elicit open body language and confidence in men, enabling you to create pictures that celebrate the male form.
