Behind the Scenes on a Boudoir Shoot with Pro Tips & Techniques (VIDEO)

If you've ever wanted a behind-the-scenes (BTS) look at a boudoir photography session complete with tips and posing techniques, the below video is for you. Led by Elizabeth Clem, a Cincinnati, Ohio-based professional boudoir photography, the tutorial gives you some insider advice on how to get started in shooting boudoir.

"Boudoir is one of my favorite types of photography and I am so excited to share how I work with my clients with this video," Clem says. "Boudoir is intimate and personal, but also bold and confidence boosting. I honestly believe I have one of the best jobs and I hope that taking you along with me to work today will inspire you to either book a session with a photographer you trust or inspire you to create a fun and uplifting experience for your own clients."

In the 25-minute clip at the bottom of this post, Clem gives you the BTS on how to capture a dark and moody boudoir session. For the tutorial, she's using a Nikon D750 DSLR and 35mm f/1.8 throughout. Because it's an actual session with a client, the sound is not always great, so we recommend turning on the Closed Captions subtitles to catch everything that is being discussed.
