10 Tricks That Can Help You Look Better in Photos

Oftentimes, we find ourselves complaining that our photos don’t look the way we want them to. In the photos, we notice that we’ve suddenly gained weight, our arms and legs have become bigger, and we seem to have bags under our eyes. Some say that they’re simply not photogenic, and others regret that they didn’t use smartphone filters.

Turn your nose in the direction of the source of light.

Light is perhaps one of the most important things in photography. It can make a 3D body completely flat or change the shape of things. To prevent wrinkles and dark circles under the eyes from appearing on your face, you should always turn your nose toward the light source.

Don’t hold your breath.

The camera captures any unnaturalness and tension. If a person holds their breath at the time of the shot, it’s reflected on both the face and the body. The person looks stiff, and the pose feels awkward.

Bend everything that can be bent.

It may sound strange, but you should try to bend all the joints and, indeed, everything that bends in your body, like the shoulders, elbows, wrists, hips, knees, and lower back. It won’t be easy to do it all at once the first time you try it.

To make your pose look natural, you can simply move or dance. If a person feels uncomfortable, no charming curves will save the photo.

Don’t lean on your arms.

The elegant pose, where a young lady is leaning on one or both arms, seems beautiful only in theory. As soon as a person strains their arms, those immediately become visually larger. At the same time, if you don’t lean on your arms, but maintain the posture at the expense of the abs and back muscles, the body will look strained. It’s better if you put your hands on your lap in a relaxed manner.

Don’t prop your cheeks up with your hands.

This pose is difficult, even for a professional model. It’s too pretentious and complicated in execution, and it often looks awkward in the photos. Besides, all the imperfections of your arms will be immediately visible.

It’s best to place your fingers on your thigh or waist, or simply wrap them around your other forearm. This will make the look appear more stylish and elegant.
