Avoid These 13 Mistakes If You Want To Look Great and More Attractive In Photos
There are many people who simply love taking photographs and selfies, but not always do the images come out as expected. Even in professional photography, one cover photo may have been the result of a hundred takes of a single pose. It takes different angles and poses to get a perfect shot unless of course, a photograph is a spontaneously lucky shot. A good photograph depends on the correct angle, the light and which profile of your face is more photogenic. How you present yourself to the camera and how the contours of your face are reflected makes a world of difference in how you look in a photograph. Here are 13 pointers from professionals on how to look your best in any photo.
1Put your chin forward
Whenever you take a photo, your neck should be clearly visible or else it would seem as if you have a too short neck or none at all, the neck accentuates your facial profile. Do not tilt your head downward and forward or your gaze appears unwelcoming and heavy. Just position your head slightly forward and though it may seem awkward, it will give your neck a slimmer appearance and make you look more elegant and add more fitness to the image.
2Do not cross your arms
There are many who tilt their head to one side to appear relaxed in a photograph which reflects a sense of spontaneity but when you tilt your head without lowering your shoulders, you might appear unnatural. Crossing your arms in such a pose ends up making you look shapeless. When you face the camera, position your body somewhat to the side. Keep your arms relaxed at your sides spreading them slightly apart and away from your body but not too much. In this way, your neck will also seem slender and your figure well defined.
A hunched back can shorten your neck and even increase your waistline by adding extra pounds to it. When you pose, keep your shoulder blades closer together and your spine straight simultaneously bending back at the waist. When sitting down, never lean against the chair; sit half turned towards the camera to define the outline of your body.
4Change the angle
While sitting, if your legs are facing the camera, it will make your silhouette look bulky and appear box like. The wrong angle can also make your legs appear shorter. All you need to do is just turn a bit away from the camera. If you want your legs to appear slender and longer, just place one leg a bit above the other.
