How to Look Great in Photographs

Tuesday, November 22, 2011

I saw this awesome article over at the Daily Makeover on how to look great in pictures, so I've decided to highlight the tips!

1. Chin Up
Keep your chin up - no, I mean literally!  It prevents you from showing the icky double chin, and it also helps you smile more naturally. Keep your chin away from your neck as well.  Remember on picture day when they always told you how to position your chin and head? Now you know why!

2. Stand at an Angle.
You will look taller and leaner if you aren't staring the camera head on. Always angle yourself and if you have a "good side", now is your chance to put that side out.

3. Mind your Hand Placement.
You know how the models in the lingerie catalogs always have their hand on their hip? Yep, do that! It makes your hips and your arms look great and toned.

4. Flash a genuine smile.
Think of the camera as a person and don't squint or squeeze to hard.  Someone once told me to put the tip of your tongue on the back of your two front teeth, and then close your bottom lip up so it covers your bottom teeth.  It's worked for me!

  1. These are great tips...and they all really do work. Especially the smile tip, so true! I used to model and kept all of these things in mind when shooting. I recently starting getting into photography so now I see from behind the lens and finding the right lighting to prevent shadows on the face is important too. Great post.

    PS. I found your blog on the Tuesday Beauty Blog Hop :)
