Are you photosensitive? Do you hate being clicked by anyone? Do you always finish up looking like a dork in every photo? Do you untag yourself in each picture, tagged by your friend? Well, some people are naturally photogenic; they always emerge flawless in pictures. But, if you’re non-photogenic, don’t bother! Here are some sure-fire tips that can help you to look better in pictures. Let’s explore these tips.
That signature smile– Have you ever noticed that celebs pose in the same manner, and carry similar smile every time when they face camera? Why is it so?? Well, it is because they have figured out what works best for them while posing for the camera. Grab your phone and click yourself, until you discover your pleasing ‘signature’ smile. Don’t forget, ‘practice makes perfect.
Practising Your Pose & Facial Expression– Pose with those facial expressions that can give you a balanced profile. For instance, thin-lipped people should slightly part their lips to give them a fuller look. Similarly, round-faced individuals should give side- poses, instead of facing the camera straight. Persons with over-projected noses or weak chins should shift their jaw slightly forward when snapped from the side.
Keep It Natural & Simple- Your poses should be relaxed and comfortable. Keep it simple, without any force pose. Push your chin a little out, while posing for a camera, if you have a double chin. This stretches the neck and hides the extra chin. If your double chin bothers you, then never get yourself clicked from below.
Picking The Right Clothes & knowing What Make To Avoid– Not all designs, trends, fabrics, and colors compliment every figure. Choose the right clothing. Wear dark coloured clothes to give slimmer look to your mid-body, arms, and thighs. Avoid wearing dresses with puffy and capped sleeves, as they highlight the thickest part of the arms. If your waist and hips are wide, then say a big ‘NO’ to clothing with horizontal stripes. Avoid concealers or foundations having SPF because it reflects light and gives you a pale look, when combines with the flashlight of the camera. Instead, go for a non-glossy touch on the face. You may put a little heavier eye makeup, blush, and lip colour because camera tends to downplay these areas, a bit.
Think Pleasant Thoughts– The best way to get good facial expressions is to think of your favorite moments and sweet memories of your life. Think pleasantly! It brings a genuine smile and reflects the real state of happiness.
Last but certainly not least Having the right lighting- The ultimate tip to get good snaps is to find a suitable complementing light. Unflattering light highlights blemishes of your face and also emphasizes the dark area beneath the nose and under the eyes. Lighting must complement from cheek to cheek and from the bottom of your chin to the top of your forehead. Though sunlight works better, you can also use different sources of light, such as lamps.
Hope, you’ll no longer run for cover when a camera focuses on you
