The idea of writing this post comes from a request from one of my clients who asked me for help to look good in photos. So after a couple of makeup sessions to learn to enhance your most positive traitsyes, We got down to work. Nothing better than practice in front of the camera to challenge the flashes that catch us without warning.
It’s a chore when you’ve spent two hours putting on your makeup and getting ready for that long-awaited date, dinner with friends, family lunch or the great event that your company has organized and seeing your photos hanging on the social networks there isn’t a good one… “I wasn’t looking in this one, I don’t have a neck in this one, look at the arms in this one, this dress doesn’t suit me at all, here I have a scared face… It’s just that I’m not at all photogenic” Do any of these statements ring a bell?
If your answer is yes, you are in luck, I have prepared you ten tips that will help youlook good in photos:
1. Smile slightly
When we smile a lot, the muscles of our face contract, wrinkles appear and we feel tense. If we choose not to smile, we may come off too serious and appear angry, so it’s better relax the face and practice the half smile. You know… extremes are not good…
2. The ideal pose
Turn 45º towards the cameraabout three quarters to visually reduce the volume of the body. Form an “A” with the body so that you rest on one leg and support the body on the hip, the other leg bend it slightly and do not join them.
The tension can be reflected in the photo and ideally it should look like a natural and relaxed posture. She lifts her head a little to stretch her neck and tilt it to one side, lowering her shoulders, one more than the other, and throwing them back. A relaxed posture conveys confidence.
4. Squinting look
Consists in close your eyes a little as if the sun hit your face. Opening your eyes too wide will make you look scared.
5. Your good side
We all have a better profile than another, look in the mirror and discover what yours is, so you will know which side to take to look good in photos.
6. The right light
light in photography is a basic premise. May cause lights or shadows they will do you a disservice. Make sure you have the light in front of you. Don’t hide your hands
7. The camera loves you
look directly into the camera, do not be afraid of him! The result will be a intense look and direct intention.
8. Do not hide your hands
It is rare that you hide them behind and conveys an attitude of defense. Is better put thumbs in pockets O well, place one hand on hip (thumb back) and let the other fall along the body.
9. The outfit is important
Clothes play a decisive factor in how your figure looks both in the photos and “live”. Play combining your clothes to maximize those features of your physiognomy that you like the most.
10. Makeup helps
It is not necessary to go made up as a door, but makeup will help you define your facial features and you will see a lot most favored in the photos.
An image says more than a thousand words, show a casual attitude and you will have guaranteed success. They won’t catch you off guard again!
