Hold Your Head High (How to Look Thinner). Every person we photograph wants to look thinner. No matter what size people are, the comment comes up time and time again. One trick to help everyone we work with look thinner is to make sure you simply move your forehead (and therefore the rest of your head) toward the camera when having your photo taken. Even if this feels awkward, I assure you it will help you look your best. It also helps to move your body with the camera angle. We take great pride in guiding our clients through their entire photo session! So, we will let you know how to sit, pose, and move, so that you can look and feel confident in front of the camera!
Know Where to Look. When you begin to pose for your photos, where do your eyes go? Do they shoot straight for the camera, or perhaps the photographer? Where you look is very important for your photos. I recommend looking just above the camera, rather than straight into it. You can also look over the shoulder or past the camera. Also, you can add some character with the simplest looks, such as a raised eyebrow, which can help to bring out your personality.
Showcase Genuine Expressions. Sometimes, it can be difficult to pose and imitate a real emotion. If you find yourself in a rut, and you just can’t seem to present the expressions you would like, there is a way you can. Strike up a conversation with us or let us tell you a few dad jokes along the way. If you want to showcase excitement, perhaps you can begin talking about something that you are looking forward to, or something new in your life. Talking about your favorite subjects will naturally bring your desired expression to your face.
Looking and feeling confident in front of the camera is certainly of importance! These are just a few tips to assist you with doing so.
