27 WAYS TO INSTANTLY LOOK BETTER IN PICTURES
Not everyone is born as a photogenic model that looks good on every picture. These 10 tricks will help you next time you are posing in front of the camera for a photographer!
Even though it sounds weird for the first time – try to keep your tongue behind the teeth and slightly touching the roof of your mouth while smiling. It helps to avoid the double chin and wide grin since it elongates your neck and your jawline.
Know your angle and try to turn your body ¾ towards the camera. Try to tilt your chin either a little bit up or down and don´t look straight at the camera.
Everyone has a different “side”, so try to turn your head to the left and to the right to find out which side is best. It’s commonly said that the good site is the left, because it shows off the cheekbones.
Before the picture is taken feel relaxed. Take a deep breath, close your eyes and then open your eyes before the shutter clicks.
Instead of saying “cheese” rather say “monkey” or “money”. The “e” will make you smile and your eyes crinkle in a more natural way.
Try other postures and not the normal “hip out and smile posture”. Do whatever comes to your mind and feels natural. Giggle, flip your hair, hold a drink, look somewhere else…
Try to cross your ankles it will make your hips look narrower and your legs look longer. Also try to stand a little bit on your tiptoes it makes your legs look longer and you appear taller than you are.
